When we are not hypnotized by our own inner lust, gluttony, laziness, pride, envy, anger, and avarice,
We are free from their torture. We are not acting torturously.
We hypnotize ourselves with these vices we have within. No one else makes them arise in us but our selves, which are many. We have many selves, and they’re all fighting for control from moment to moment. These many selves are the seven vices, which appear in many forms.
We also free others from that torture caused by the many selves when we defeat the many selves within us. We do not want to keep anyone bound to any of these vices. We prevent Divninty from manifesting in people and in ourselves in this way when we identify with a vice.
When not identifying with a vice, then, we can practice Faith, Humbleness, Altruism, Love, Diligence, Chastity, Temperance, Philanthropy, and be Happy for others, since these Virtues are the opposites of those seven vices.
These Virtues are the Noble Qualities of the Soul.
These Virtues are Transcendent Perfections. They perfectly transcend terrible vices that cause suffering.
These are the Seven Cardinal Virtues that every Human must integrate into the core of their Being; into their Heart, in the place of the vices.
Then we have a perfected Human Being who embodies the qualities of God.
A person like this is now made in the image of God.
They got rid of their false-many-selves, their competing vices, so that their True Self, which is like God, can Be.
They got rid of their vices.
Now, they are Like God, since virtues come from God and are made by God and they are taught by and are given to us by God.
