On Swadhyaya (Self study) From Shree Vasant's Teachings

You are in control of your senses, your appetite, your desires, your earthly attachments, ultimately. No form of hypnotism, magic or “mind bending” drugs can change this. Only one who can control these things is YOU yourself. You can enlist the help of God if you like. This speeds up the process by which you learn to control your mind to the degree where you can be full of love all the time and anger slowly disappears. Then there is no discipline to control your emotions because this problem simply does not exist for you. But of course this is, for most of us, a long way off. So let us simply concentrate on being loving today. Certainly this is going to help us in our efforts tomorrow.
