Please consider your own life. I don’t think you can deny that your mind and body often fight each other. How much longer are you going to allow this fight to continue? Ten years? A hundred years? Or will it not end even when you die? All beings in the universe were designed to display a definite order. This means God did not create us to exist in the imperfect state in which we now find ourselves. Your task now is to empower your mind and subdue your body. The grace of God will be with you in this effort.
A religious life consists of embracing the lifestyle of denying the body’s desires and conforming to the wishes of the mind. We must do it for a period of three to five years or even more, until it becomes habitual. After that, we are told to pray without ceasing. Since the mind easily falls prey to external influences, you need to offer devotions from the midway position. Do that until you have gained three to four times your present power.
