Simply remember that as the Light shines on your vices and pseudo-virtues, you need only continue the process of refinement.  As your inner light increases, you may seem worse to yourself than you had thought.  Shining a bright light in the corner reveals all of the dirt.  Your shortcomings were there all along, but now the light has exposed them.  Don’t lose heart, simply continue to  sweep up the dirt.  These thoughts were a combination of words from a book and my feelings on the subject.  Love one another with kindness and tolerance.
