Willpower, Realization, Liberation and Merger with Siva

An upadesha by Bodhinatha. Understanding the mind is 50% of control of the mind. In order to achieve this, we need to cultivate willpower. Realization leads to Liberation which leads to Merger. These are three distinct goals. It takes lots of realisations in order to achieve liberation. The Guru Chronicles illustrates how Gurudeva was taught to cultivate willpower when he first arrived in Colombo.

Understanding, loving and making allowances--these are the strengths of the soul awakened through sadhana, once the emotional ups and downs and the barriers of the instinctive influences of fear, jealousy, anger, deceit and disappointment are conquered.
