♥ Seek the truth (the Kingdom & presence of God) with all your heart, mind, body & soul. See the wisdom in His words (and those of His Sons & devotees--men of God), follow them and achieve everlasting joy of life, free of all sorrow. Then pain and misery shall not touch you. Rise above all desires and you shall be free of all bondage.
We don't cherish, nourish, or realise the opportunities for love in our lives, and run after hollow things which money can buy, but do not seek that which money cannot buy. Love and brotherhood is the real deal, not money or possessions or fame--these things only make us more egoistic, self-centered and greedy;and inflame us with never-ending desires. (see comments)

Hang in there, Lucifer's greatest tool is discouragement, DON't GIVE IN TO IT, because THAT WOULD SUGGEST YOU THINK HE COULD DEFEAT GOD. There is always a battle because the adversary never rests, but while we rest, we can pray that The Lord will watch over us, both day, and night in our sleep. Alma 37:36-37 LOOK IT UP!
Mind is blinded by three powerful emotions--lust, anger, and greed--in other words, desire or ego when inflamed, assumes the form of smoke which clouds the mind and intellect, thus the person is unable to think rationally or clearly and performs karma which he or she later regrets and repents. Do not let the mind & intellect be infatuated, corrupted, or dragged by the senses or the objects of their attractions.
