Living by our Inclinations lets past programming, previous propensities and predilections shape and guide our behavior. They may not always serve us well.
If we don't decide what sort of person we want to be and become and then consciously work to become that person, our environment and our experience determine our identity and destiny for us.
It's a contrast between a life that is a conscious creation versus a mindless reaction and go with the flow existence.
To Be Happy And Spiritually Successful, Live According To Your Aspirations, NOT Your Inclinations.
Practice Being The Person You Want To Be.
