In this way we gradually acquire psychic abilities
"The spiritual life implies controlling our feelings and thoughts. But to achieve this, we must start by watching every little gesture we make in daily life. In this way we gradually acquire psychic abilities, which will then allow us to control more powerful currents. You will say you do not see the connection. Well, that is precisely where the mistake lies: as long as you have not learned control in the minute details of daily life, you will not be able to master anger, contempt, covetousness, disgust or the need for revenge.
If you just paid attention to the way you speak, you would realize that you are not even able to control your hands: you wave them about, you scratch yourself, you fiddle with your buttons... Start by learning to keep your hands still. How do you expect to control powers that are beyond you, when you fail to even control your hands?"
