In this concluding session of the 'How to Introspect' discourse series, Nutan Swamiji gives us a summary of points discussed during the earlier sessions.

The entire spiritual sadhana is to get anchored to our Universal identity, even while interacting with the world. It is to move away from a constricted mindset to an expansive mindset. The goal of both meditational and interactional sadhana is to attain the same universal ‘I’. Being anchored to our real identity, we will be able to live with strength and stability even in the midst of variegated external situations the world presents.

At every step, we must follow that which makes us feel inner expansion, lightness, and strength and avoid that which makes us feel shrunk, small, and weak within. Our growth is in inner expansion. A good life is a pilgrimage from self-centeredness to Universalness. We should never fight with the negative thoughts or traits as fighting with them will allow them a greater hold on our mind. Instead, we must fill the mind with positive thoughts and liberal qualities. When the negative thoughts come, we should ask them in a friendly way, to leave us. At the same time making sure we do not indulge in them anymore.

Indulging constantly in the worldly thoughts of likes and dislikes, we become slave to the world. By thinking more and more about our own unaffected Core Identity, we become master of the world. We must develop an integrated personality. Disciplined senses following the mind, mind guided by the intelligence, and intelligence always looking for guidance from the inmost Reality, will lead us to the ultimate auspicious goal!
