Cast away the vice of egoism, the evil of greed and the poison of envy. When you seek joy from something outside you, remember that a far greater joy lies in wait within your own inner consciousness. When you are afraid of someone or something outside you, remind yourself that the fear is born, fed and fertilized in your own mind and that you can overcome it by denying it. How can fear counter the path of a spiritual aspirant? It can hide in no shadow, it can pester no spiritual aspirant who has God in his heart. Faith in the Almighty God is the impregnable armor that the spiritual aspirant can wear; and peoples of all lands are spiritual aspirants, whether they know it or not.
