Question
Sdjm means__________________ the teaching.

heeding

After practicing for many years and not becoming enlightened the recourse an aspirant should take is: _________________________________________________________________

The aspirant should continue to study and practice the teachings, taking care to make continuous effort, to develop dispassion, and to become increasingly devoted to God.

NOTES:
When does maturity to succeed in the teachings occur?

Maturity to succeed in the teachings occurs when a person becomes sufficiently frustrated with the futility of trying to fulfill desires of the ego through worldly pursuits. At that time, the person’s capacity to practice dispassion emerges.

Question
The desire for worldly attainments should be replaced with desire for _____________________attainments.

spiritual

Question
Those who want to practice salad bar _______________________or seek the advice of oracles or create their own independent classes should do so on their own.

spirituality

How should an aspirant think about their spiritual path when they encounter failure to meet the instructions of the teaching or they fail to execute their own desired level of practice?

The aspirant should remember that spiritual strength is needed in order to succeed on the spiritual path. If the aspirant’s mind is clouded with egoistic thoughts, feelings, and desires, it will lack the necessary will-power to meet the instructions of the teaching. Therefore, the aspirant should work to resolve the agitation that is occurring through practice of devotion to God, practice of right action, practice of dispassion and detachment from the world, practice of attainment of the teaching, and repeated effort. The aspirant should remember that in doing this, success will ultimately occur.
