Good and Bad Qualities
All evil propensities and immoral practices are all man’s creation, they are not Bhagwaan’s (God’s) creation. Bhagwaan (God) is Truth; whereas the evilness and immorality is untruth. How can untruth be created by truth?
On turning away from the world, then without any effort on their own, good qualities come.
When Jeev (person) turns towards Paramatma (God), then all good qualities come in him. And when he turns towards the world, then all bad qualities come in him.
Being saddened by your own helplessness and simultaneously having faith in the grace of God, then those bad qualities that you want to get rid off, they will go away and those good qualities that you wish to acquire, they will surely gain.
By considering the good qualities and good conduct to be in us, will lead to pride. And by considering the bad qualities and bad conduct to be in us, they become firm and lasting (sthaayi).
