Some individuals have a very placid human disposition. They seldom get excited, are not prone to lose their tempers, and are generally easy to get along with. If their disposition is a result of their understanding of God, these good qualities will continue to unfold, increase, and bless.
But sometimes what appears on the surface as a very congenial, good disposition is only covering up some highly undesirable traits of character such as apathy, timidity, or love of popularity. Hence in times of crisis these individuals are frequently unable to make decisions or take action of any kind. In fact, they may fall completely apart. This is because their evenness of disposition stemmed from human weakness rather than spiritual serenity.
Other individuals may have a diametrically opposite problem. They may be quick-tempered, high-strung and excitable, or even given to ruthlessness and mad ambition. Many of those in this category turn for relief from mental strain and temperamental imbalance to material medicines. In our fast-living society, sedatives and tranquilizing drugs have become part of a way of life for many. Businessmen, students, housewives, and career women—many believing that they cannot stand the pressures of what they feel is too highly accelerated an existence—are looking to drugs for relief.
