I read this really cute (1) about a bunch of disciples that go to their Guru and say they want to go on a pilgrimage to improve themselves and their (2). The Guru asks them to take a ‘karela’ (bitter gourd) with them and get it blessed by every deity. When they return he asks them to cook the (3) vegetable and upon eating it remarks, “How strange, this is still bitter despite being so blessed.” When disciples say that it is the nature of the vegetable to be so, the Guru replies, “this is what you need to learn unless you change your nature, nothing and certainly no pilgrimages can help.” The secret to (4) lies in your own being.

Don’t look for saviours, don’t look for distractions, don’t be content with playing the (10). The problem lies within you and the only way to change it is to change yourself positively in order to change your reality to being a positive one.
