ESTABLISH GOOD HABITS
Much of your subconsciousness consists of submerged experiences and memories thrown into the background but recoverable. You can establish new habits, new ideas, new ideals, new tastes and a new character in the subconscious mind by changing the old ones. Sit quietly. Think deeply. Cogitate and reflect. Have the constant company of the wise. Do selfless service. Develop divine qualities. Do not jeer at anyone. Do not frown at anybody. Restrain all your senses. Be cheerful always. Do not look back. Divest yourself of desire and wrath. Cast off pride. Turn your gaze inwards. Pray. Contemplate. You will enjoy true happiness.
