What Will Prevail?
You may find you have to struggle in order to be more conscious. Despite wonderful benefits close at hand, you will nevertheless find yourself fighting what seems at times a tedious, uphill battle. Why? Old tendencies are very powerful. Your habits will almost always win. It's not a question of sincerity, either. Of course you'd like to be a more loving, creative person. Who wouldn't? Certainly it would be wonderful to contact your higher consciousness with its thrilling insight and inner power. No question it's a worthwhile endeavor. No question it's worth persistence and quantities of attention. Nevertheless, your old tendencies, the way you habitually think and feel — your most regular attitudes about life from yesterday and yesteryear — will not easily yield to a happier you.
