But if you merely restrain yourself and do not redirect your life
force wholeheartedly toward higher consciousness, you will repress your energies. Symptoms
of repression and failure in moderation are: irritability, timidity, cruelty, jealousy,
anger, fear, skepticism, sarcasm, poor concentration, confusion, sickness, and
intolerance. The precious benefits of moderation are: a clearer mind, serenity, improved
memory, vigor, more positive emotions, sweeter disposition, better concentration, greater
ease in entering higher states of awareness, and greater well being. A longer life span is
also claimed where moderation is practiced.
Because of these findings throughout the ages, the physiological factors of awakening
necessitate moderation. Further, the benefits are considered worthwhile by all who give
themselves, and their loved ones, a chance.
If you have problems with moderation or repression, you can learn a number of marvelous
transmutation practices. They will also help you overcome intense sexual desire and the
debilitation from overly frequent sex.
