As used by the Culdians, the word refers to certain traits necessary for spiritual progress – such as stability, perseverance, patience, orderliness and resolution, among others. Incentive must be included, for the path to progress is arduous. Restlessness and curiosity are very necessary qualities also. And of course, without the discipline of body and mental processes little progress can be anticipated. Application is another important quality, it means action rather than idle talk inflates one’s ego and leads to false evaluation of one’s capabilities.
