Know Your Own Character

Many people do not understand their own natures and in consequence they suffer distress and conflict. They are puzzled by the seething desires and emotions they find bubbling up within themselves. But there is no cause for alarm. Here, as in every sphere, knowledge banishes fear and superstition.
The normal person has certain basic urges which may be listed as follows:

• To have food and bodily comfort-to feel secure.
• To wield power in some form-to control others-to feel significant or important.
• To create-to construct.
• To protect the weak and helpless.
• To find out-to understand-to be curious.
• To escape from danger-to preserve oneself.
• To gain, possess, acquire.
• To laugh.
• To fight-to repel the unpleasant.
• To submit to a stronger-to appeal for help.
• To mix with others-to be one of a group-to be like others of one’s own set.
• To mate with a member of the opposite sex-to reproduce.

It is useful to become acquainted with the above list as it will help you to understand not only your own behavior but that of others. With understanding comes tolerance and charity, and you take a big step towards the serene temperament.
