For years you have been trying to improve yourself, to transform yourself, but without success, because you're not using the right methods
"For years you have been trying to improve yourself, to transform yourself, but without success. This is because you are not using the right methods. There are many good methods, but for today I shall restrict myself to explaining just one. Turn to heaven and say: ‘All right, I understand, there is nothing I can do about my lower nature. It is stubborn and tough and I shall never be able to change it. Oh celestial entities, it's true that after so many wasted years I have finally understood, I shall never gain anything from it. My lower nature is limited, blind, and wicked. So send me the purest and most perfect creatures to replace it, so that these creatures may set up home within me, so they may guide me, teach me and take charge of my entire life, so that I in turn may realize your plans, even despite myself.' This is one of the best prayers in the world. And if you say this prayer with sincerity then you cannot fail to improve yourself, transform yourself."
