Q: So many pretensions and excuses are there for self-indulgence. Sometimes they are very subtle and therefore more difficult to deaL with even than hostile forces. Should we not deal with them with a concentrated mind?
Yes, certainly. The mind must become conscious of these things and on its guard – without this consciousness it is not possible to get rid of these vital things – they will go on lurking under all sorts of disguises.
