The physical plane is the world of consequences over which we have no power. In order to bring about lasting changes, we must rise to the world of causes. It is only there that we have all the means to trigger beneficial forces that will produce some results. But most people ignore it. They content with intervening on the physical plane. And they are surprised to see that the improvements they achieve do not last; events or people come and arrange things on their own way.
The same law applies to individuals; so try to rise by uniting with the world of wisdom, affection and truth, that you will be able to release powers, which will have an influence on your behaviour.
Think of it and stay blessed.
With Best Regards
