Characteristics are something peculiar, they come in the most diverse shapes and forms. Some are more conspicuous, some less so, and yet they all carry an enormous potential for releasing one’s own powers. We carry these personal or characteristic expressions around with us until we begin to change them, if possible. However, caution is advised here, because since we have already carried these characteristics with us for all or a large part of our lives, the effects are correspondingly great when we begin to change them. In life, one should also not be surprised that newly received views can make the old seem dull as well as put it into a gloomy light.
