thanks steve, sometimes restlessness or irritability comes when we are trying to change undesirable impulses- i read a story from inayat khan on perspective. to sum it up, i think inayat khan was pained from his nightly vigils, staying up later then normal. the then pupil inayat khan asked his murshid if he approved of his actions and the teacher asked if he thought god would be pleased with him torturing himself. the point made was that right attitude is the key to success.

when we see god as a divine friend and teacher we are able to treat ourselves a little more gently. we are able to treat others just as kindly. right attitude means creating liberation from the cold or limiting perspectives we often ensnare ourselves in. in the case of over-eating or even sexual urges, it may be hard to change when we are used to giving in but with a loving heart and a faith in god, we can change(or is it that we revert back to the knowledge of our changeless state).

it's nice to know that every day is a battle, that meditation helps bring us back to that place of calm. when an impulse becomes so strong that you see you are knocked off centered, feel with your Heart and have faith in the Lord- the caretaker of all souls.

the ability to catch ourselves comes from the practice of repose. we may not always catch ourselves in the act, we may suffer greatly, but little by little we may strive towards union and complete harmony. our suffering becomes a blessing the moment we desire to live in accordance with our souls calling. additionally, continued practice of good habits becomes joyful alignment.
