ooh, this is some wise shit

Changes that occur through spiritual practice are not really your business.  If you make them your business, you will try to change your life directly.  If you try to change your life directly, no matter how long you work at it, you will not satisfy yourself.  So, if you truly want to change your life, you should just form the routine of doing small things, day by day.  Then your life will be changed beyond your expectations.  If you practice continuously, day after day, you will become a peaceful, gentle, and harmonious person.  There is no explanation for this.

if you truly want to change your life, you should just form the routine of doing small things...you will become a peaceful, gentle, and harmonious person.

i know this is true. yet my ego - especially the part that wants to call itself my "inner durga" - wants to make exceptions. i want to change while still doing the same, the same... :P
