My apologies for being offline quite for some time. The problem with the site has been resolved.
A few years ago I had read one book called modern saints and mystics by Major General A. N. Sharma (Retd.) one of the saints that he wrote about a Swami Sevadasji. He was listening to Gita and trying to understand Gita Discourses right since his childhood. He would give following advice to the people who contacted him for guidance.
Be straight at all times-no deception, no pride, no vanity, no temper, no conceit, no crookedness and surrender to Him at all times. This will result in humility and loss of Ego bringing the sincere devotee in front of the Lord.
I consider that this is a great message for us, commoners, and would help us in our lives immensely.
