Struggle between the spirit and the flesh

There is always a struggle between the spirit and the flesh, and the soul witnesses the struggle. If the spirit succumbs to the flesh easily, without protesting, then there is no hope. If the spirit gives in after struggling, there is hope. But if the spirit wins over the flesh, victory is eternal. Yet it is the struggle itself that gives perfection. So let us struggle now.

Once the mind’s control is firm you are lost! Mind is a storehouse of low desires and always misleads you. It has the stamp of animal desires on it from billions of years. (, p2162)
