His efforts to dislodge those animal desires and fleshly passions which seem too strong for his moral life can be assisted by meditation practice if he has advanced it to a certain level. It is then that he can regard the disturbers while keeping the mind perfectly still until they seem separate from himself. This idea gained must be considered and reconsidered day after day until it is fully realized and fixed in his emotional nature as well as his mental one. Thus the will takes hold of it too. This advanced stage requires persistent inner work, for to overcome and master self is a great reward.
