Habit Patterns - Observe it regularly!
Your personality can be changed in this lifetime, you can attain the highest rung of life, a state free from pain and misery. Don't postpone this, as you postpone the other joys of your life. Enlightenment is your birthright; that state is freedom from pain and misery. Enlightenment is not something acquired or new-it is already there within. You can realize that state. Learn to work with yourself to remove the barriers to your growth. Learn to transform your habits and thus purify and perfect your personality. This is your challenge-to transform your own personality!
Perhaps you are not happy with some event from past; perhaps you expected too much of yourself. Then you condemn yourself by thinking that you have not done enough, and you constantly repeat the thought that your past actions were not healthy or good. Thus, you have created a habit of condemning yourself, which created negativity in your mind. But the present and future actions are still completely in your hands, and that is where you should focus your mind.
