…I did not work by the Christian Rationalist Doctrine, I had not the happiness to get to know it and I could not; but my spirit as I was always a fighter, that faced difficult situations, I have known how to take advantage and how to improve. So today I work in the Higher Astral Pleiad… Martin Luther King Jr.

Self-control and sensibility – by Luiz de Mattos

Self-control insures inward control thus avoiding impulsive actions and thoughtless attitudes. These may lead man to make serious mistakes, many of them irreparable, which he later may regret, as is often the case.

Mans should always be on the alert. He should be aware that he is force that works ceaselessly, vibrating, attracting and repelling. Space is filled with streams crossing in all directions, both favourable and unfavourable to his growth and well-being.

 
Hence the need for self-control, so that he does not allow himself to be influenced by adverse irradiations. He should act only on his own will.

Sensibility is a quality that enables man to feel the vibratory streams of the environment and to recognise truth behind the facade of appearances.

It is through sensibility that man feels the affinity which gathers, unites, links together people who nourish similar ideals and equal yearnings.

Furthermore, sensibility is an instrument of joy and sorrow. And it is sorrow that often awakens to life's realities the inattentive, indifferent, wayward spirit.
