Many people suffer needlessly due to their perception of fears and their bad mental habits of worry and anxiety. These states of mind are a combination feelings and conceptual attitudes. Therefore, in order to abandon such mental pain, we first try to change our faulty conceptions. Once we improve the way we conceive our reality, then we shall have a powerful basis upon which to control our feelings. Once our feelings are in control, we no longer are tormented by mental pain. If we make no effort to oppose faulty conceptions, then over time they tend to become more powerful and uncontrollable and our feelings are more extreme. Learn how to release yourself from these miseries.

This confusion results in people engaging in various activities that they believe are spiritual, but in fact, are not. Thus, their activities will not bear the fruit of spiritual development – the attainment of everlasting happiness. If we understand clearly what spiritual and spiritual path mean, then we definitely shall be able to attain ultimate peace and joy.
