Question:

Could I please have some guidance on how to proceed with my quest for knowledge and freedom? No matter how hard I try I just do not seem to get rid of my shortcomings!

Answer:

<wg> My friend, it is good to see you working so hard at changing your behaviour. However, please remember that our shortcomings are our passage to power and our ticket to freedom. Therefore work at TRANSFORMING your shortcomings into their POSITIVE aspects. It is IMPOSSIBLE to get RID of shortcomings. LOL! We can only transform them! Neither should we TRY to rid ourselves of our shortcomings for if we do, we simply undermine ourselves by, in effect, wanting to get rid of our passage to power! :)
