Sustaining one’s enthusiasm in the path – temporary impulses are also significant

But even the temporary impulses of adults* are not to be considered insignificant. However small or little the attempt in connection with finding the Truth, and whether physical or mental, it forms a valuable asset.

The varying impressions of sin and virtue are spent, but spiritual impressions are not and always remain to one’s credit — ever increasing, but never decreasing.

Hence, even the best attempts should be made for the temporary impulses to be expressed also… Enthusiasm, inner impulses, and even temporary longings are to be welcomed as they often prove to be steppingstones to real love.
