Bondage of inclinations

The servitude to proclivities of the soul births a predictable range of regretful behaviors that robs man of the capacity to trust himself. In time, he projects this suspicion and distrust unto others as a hallmark of how he interprets all his neighbor’s actions. But this reservation and doubt ascribed to others chiefly arises from his perceived bondage to the lower inclinations of his soul, and thus the unpredictability of his own actions that arises therefrom. His inability to master the baser inclinations of his own heart makes him suspicious and doubtful in the capacity for others to do so. As such, distrust of his neighbor becomes an extension of the bondage and distrust in himself.
