Here is a fundamental principle of metaphysics: When you act in a positive manner that goes against an innate negative tendency, then you receive a great light. Each person on his own level can personally experience this. When you overcome even a minor temptation, you experience unlimited joy. And the greater the temptation, the greater the ecstasy of overcoming it!
The next time you overcome a temptation, visualize a great light permeating your entire being.
