How to Deal with Temptation – 8/14/1983

How to Deal with Temptation – temptation is that which pulls us down from our highest aspirations. 

There is no freedom if the mind is constantly drawn outward.

Observe things from an inner center, and don’t react on impulse.

Seeking fulfillment in this world is tempting because progress is based on what other people think. Spiritual progress is more subtle.

Enjoy all the little and big things we do with God’s joy.

Only be concerned with pleasing God.

Practice the presence of God all the time. Have a constant dialogue with Him.
