"The first act of freedom is to not submit to that which is not free within yourself... It is not only Knowledge that will hold you back. You must hold yourself back. This is a daily practice... The personal mind will do what it does. Don't get entangled with it. Your job is to know when to hold yourself back."
"Self-restraint means you must hold in abeyance many of your own reactions to allow a deeper and more pervasive response to emerge and to guide you. You must hold back your angry speech and your frustrated words on many occasions. Exercising this forbearance enables you to realize something you know that is at a deeper level. This requires great patience, for you must wait for things to come about."
