There you go.

By the way, you don't have to reject the things you find wanting. You can reform them. Evil adapts and the urge to dominate/control corrupts, but they do not create. They do not have their own tools, their own sources. They take the good things that are yours and twist them. You can untwist them. Until such time as you can sort it out for yourself ON the points where you know you are weak with temptation, yeah, set them aside. Better to reject them than continue to suffer under them, BUT... better still, when you can, to embrace them in a way that filters out the corruption but retains the core goodness that was twisted along the way. The very fact that you survived, instead of wholly destroying yourself, is PROOF that there was much goodness in there.

Wisdom involves having the humility to see when the truths that once set you free have come to shackle you, when you must expand your view to include more of the truth. "More of" implies that you had some going to begin with, and it only the foundation of "some truth" that you can build a view of "more truth". You have to stand before you walk, and walk before you run. What must you do to soar? Growth is a process, as is being "born again". A means, not an end -- a lifetime, not a moment.

Laughter and tears, these are the signs, the signs of centering, of alignment of consciousness within the passive forces of divinity, of the ALLOWING, opening the gates to Her, the Holy Spirit, the receiving of wisdom. These are the signs of perception.
