Our teaching presents you with exercises for every moment of the day. Obviously, you cannot do them all, but pick at least a few and practice them every day.
These exercises will bring many improvements to your life, but most importantly, they will help you to develop your willpower. It is thanks to willpower that we overcome resistance and triumph over obstacles.
Without exercise, it is impossible to develop our will.
There are many things we can receive from the exterior: wealth, knowledge, sensations, and so forth.
But nobody can give us willpower, we must develop it ourselves. That is why a spiritual teaching first requires the disciple to exercise their willpower through discipline and regular activity.
Of course this is hard, but it is what is most effective. Through willpower, you work, you insist, and in the end you get what you desire: light, love, power, health, beauty, and so on.
Without willpower, no matter what you have, you will obtain nothing more, and you may even lose what you do have.
