THAT'S ONE OF THE TRAPS
IN FACT THE HIGHER YOU GET
THE HARDER YOU FALL
EACH      TIME

IT'S THESE FIERCE LIONS GUARDING THE INNER

GATES

WHEN YOU ARE EXTRICATING
YOURSELF FROM THIS WEB OF

DESIRE WHICH IS YOUR
EGO,WHICH IS YOUR COGNITIVE
FRAMEWORK OF THE UNIVERSE

(IT'S ALL THE SAME THING)

AND THIS EXTRICATION
(BELIEVE ME) DOESN'T HAPPEN
WITHOUT AN INTERNAL STRUGGLE

THIS IS CALLED TAPAS...

TAPASIA

STRAIGHTENING BY FIRE

"If a man gives way to all his desires,
or panders to them, there will be no
inner struggle, in him, no 'friction''
no fire. But if, for the sake of attaining
a definite aim, he struggles with the
desires that hinder him - he will
then create a fire which will gradually
transform his inner world into a single whole. "

Ouspensky - "In Search of the Miraculous"
