Never let your inner states of discomfort reach such proportions that you can no longer remedy them.
Here is an image: If you step carelessly in wet cement and are so lost in thought that you neglect to remove your feet, the cement will set. It will even become so hard that you will find yourself trapped.
Someone will have to go and get some tools to break the cement and you might be hurt in the process. Well, this is what happens in the inner life.
If we fail to remedy certain mistakes and shortcomings quickly, soon it is too late – the repairs are very expensive and may well cause further damage.
