Hello Adelasie

thanx a ton ! One of our pal, Barry Fallick stated that an attempt to
control oneself is a form of violence by itself & is foreign to K's
teachings. Can u throw some light on this ?

My best

Raghu Seshadri.

Dear Raghu,

Indeed there is a big difference between self-control and control of
others. The ancient wisdom teaches self-control as one of the seven
basic character traits to be developed assiduously by the student.
Control of others leads to difficulties in every realm. Occultism
teaches that the wise man leads by example, not by force. We are
taught not to judge one another, but to learn to tolerate the
differences of others, knowing that each facet is a component of the
perfect gem.
