Various pathologies can occur and cause mental suffering. To be in balance and to prosper, the human will must develop simultaneously according to the four so-called “cardinal virtues.” The four cardinal virtues of the will are: Fortitude, Temperance, Prudence and Justice. As soon as the will deviates from these four virtues, mental and spiritual sufferings inevitably occur !

Thus mental and moral sufferings will inevitably arise:

  • If the will is “weak” because it lacks strength, courage, boldness, endurance…
  • When the will is “immoderate”, due to lack of control over the body and sensory perceptions (… where there is a need to restrain and discipline one’s sensual desires: Food, sexuality, rhythm of life mainly)
  • When the will is “rash” because of lack of emotional control: The will is then dominated by passionate outbursts (… fear, anger, sadness, envy, jealousy, revenge, wrath, hatred…)
  • When the will is “unfair”, as soon as you do not return to everyone what you “owe” them (… Respect, support, reciprocity, mutual help, cooperation, recognition, gratitude, love, compassion…
