Only the person having firm conviction and iron volition can attain strength and energy. At no stage of karma does he ever hesitate.
Contemplating upon divine qualities, performing good deeds and chanting are all ways of destroying delusion through satsang.
An ignorant man committing evil deeds does not realise the consequences. The imprudent man is consumed by his own deeds, like one burnt by fire.
Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do volunteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need.
