Everyone has some desirable and undesirable characteristics. Our desirable characteristics or qualities, contribute to our happiness and our undesirable characteristics or personality defects are the main source of unhappiness in our lives.
Personality defects have a serious impact on our behaviour and also affect us at a spiritual level. Some of the spiritual repercussions of personality defects are:
Lack of concentration: If our mind is already full of personality defects and ego, we won’t be able to focus on chanting God’s Name. It becomes difficult to create a centre of the chant (a devotion centre) in the subconscious mind as it is already full of personality defects and ego. In fact due to one’s personality defects, a person finds it difficult to concentrate on any type of spiritual practice.
Unable to merge with God: This is the ultimate goal of spiritual practice. But in order to merge with God, who is flawless, all virtuous and has no defects whatsoever, we need to get rid of our defects too. Otherwise we will stagnate in our spiritual journey.
Control of negative energies: Personality defects are the vulnerabilities of our mind. Thus, it is very easy for negative energies to take advantage of our personality defects and even control our actions and behaviour.
Reduced capacity for spiritual practice: The spiritual energy we generate through our spiritual practice is used up in combating our wrong actions which occur due to our personality defects. Hence, the speed of our spiritual growth is considerably reduced, i.e. our capacity and efficiency of spiritual practice is depleted.
Hence, for those following any path of spiritual practice, we recommend the Personality Defect Removal process as an effective tool to eradicate our personality defects.
