Weaknesses - becoming aware of them is the beginning of strength

The practice of spiritual life begins with refining the perception you have of your inner life, and if you are not always very happy with what you find by way of limitations, gaps and weaknesses, that’s normal. But this is no reason to become discouraged and stop work: little by little you will gain strength and expand and enrich your sphere. If you remain seated on a chair, you can imagine yourself capable of anything. But if you try to get up, walk, run and jump, you will see how strong you actually are and be forced to lose your illusions. In your disappointment you will think yourself weaker than you really are, when in fact this awareness is really the beginning of your strength. Do you find it difficult to distance yourself from your past way of life? This is proof that you are trying to progress, trying to make some effort. You will say, ‘Yes, but I’m suffering’. Of course you are suffering, but that is because you are seeing things differently and heading towards a new world.
