Achieving a New Identity

Is it possible to be successful in the world while maintaining your philosophical perspective? Gurudeva says, Yes, of course, that once you understand and accept yourself as a soul, rather than a body, mind or set of emotions, then you are able to work harmoniously with everyone without effort, and success comes automatically.

We make very little progress when we strive to conquer these baser instincts in a good mood. However, vast strides are possible when we are miserable and work with ourselves to replace our misery with joy and understanding.
