We can monitor our thoughts

There are many ways to become a prisoner. We may think first of being physically confined by steel bars or stone walls. But it is, in a certain sense, much more restrictive to become the captive of the material senses by constantly seeking satisfaction and stimulation in matter.

Sensuality would strip away our freedom, steal our self-control, usurp our self-respect. Under the camouflage of the promise of pleasure in matter, it would pull us down and counteract our efforts to surmount the belief of life in matter. We're not always willing, however, to see through its various guises.
