Ideals must become higher and grander. Desires must become more and more selfless and sublime. Attachment must be transmuted into nobler and subtler emotions. Stop a while and examine your habits and activities; analyze them, evaluate them, on the touchstone of morality, truth, love and fortitude. Give up all that drags you down into evil; strengthen all that which lifts you and takes you nearer to Me. Don't be disheartened that you have to suffer the consequences of what you have done.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
