The undesirable tendencies have to be uprooted completely, or at least there should be a systematic endeavour to get rid of them. Such aspirants will have to be swimming against the current. Proceeding against the current is the means to reach the Source; floating with the current means getting farther and farther from It and losing sight of the Goal. Of course, swimming up the river is a bit hard, but every stroke takes you nearer to and not farther from the goal. To overcome the strain, one must have the raft called meditation. Through meditation, the weakness of the physical frame can be overcome, the wayward speed of the mind can be controlled, and the progress toward the seat of grace can be made easy. Then, one can attain the primordial Divine Force (adi-murti). Instead, if one cares more for the ease of the journey and floats along the current, one would be travelling away from grace, turning their back on it. - Dhyana Vahini, Ch 9.
