Right Attitude: Basis for the Spiritual Life – 1/10/1985

One of the leading and most helpful attitudes to develop, is listening and being open to learning.

It’s a common delusion to think that whatever attitudes we hold define who we are and therefore say, why should we change? People can justify having wrong attitudes by saying that ‘this is who I am.’ This is not who you are. It’s an energy pattern you are putting out right now. We are on the spiritual path to go beyond self-limiting attitudes.

The Bhagavad Gita explains the nature of trying to change our unhelpful energy patterns. No quality is killed when you overcome it. It is transformed into a new kind of energy.
