...altogether childish...

"Q(questioner): How is it here, my mind is engaged in high topics and finds dwelling on them easy and pleasant, but when I return home I find myself forgetting all I have learned here, worrying and fretting, unable to remember my real nature even for a moment? What is the cause of this?

M(Maharaj): It is your childishness you are returning to. You are not fully grown up; there are levels left undeveloped because unattended. Just give full attention to what in you is crude and primitive, unreasonable and unkind, altogether childish, and you will ripen. It is the maturity of heart and mind that is essential. It comes effortlessly when the main obstacles—inattention and unawareness—are removed. In awareness you grow.

- Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (I AM THAT- Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj)
