' Clarity and Earnestness '...

You need both clarity and earnestness for self-knowledge.

You need maturity of heart and mind, which comes through
earnest application in daily life of whatever little you have

There is no such thing as compromise in Yoga.

If you want to sin, sin wholeheartedly and openly.

Sins too
have their lessons to teach the earnest sinner, as virtues –
the earnest saint.

It is the mixing up of the two that is so

Nothing can block you so effectively as compromise,
for it shows lack of earnestness, without which nothing can be

- Nisargadatta Maharaj
