An encouraging word

“Our peace of mind increases in spite of suffering; we become braver and more enterprising; we understand more clearly the difference between what is everlasting and what is not; we learn how to distinguish between what is our duty and what is not. Our pride melts away and we become humble. Our worldly attachments diminish and, likewise, the evil within us diminishes from day to day.”

-Mahatma Gandhi

Gosh, I hope so. But I have a hard time believing this can happen without some awareness, some effort. But I want to believe.
