Repeated slips in the spiritual path

The tendency of the mind is to fall back. It doesn’t matter how many times you pick it up, it is designed to slip again. Therefore spiritual practice lies not in regretting the various falls, but in ensuring that no fall is permanent, that no fall is final.

Fall you will and there should be no surprise in that.
