Two Priceless Skills
Generally, those who fail to practice new attitudes and actions fail to achieve higher consciousness. They allow the agonies and their turbulence in general to dominate them. They give up. They refuse to have periods of detachment or practice their ideals. They quit.
1. They simply change their minds. Something else has become more important to them.
2. They allow themselves to be pacified by a slight improvement in the outer world. As a consequence, they no longer feel they need higher awareness or greater well being. A bribe from the outer world, however slight, often suffices.
3. They allow other desires to become more important and to dominate. Thus they change their purpose and lose their desire for higher consciousness.
