A quote from Page 30 (I have the paperback edition)
“To inhibit is to activate consciously the place in the brain that brings you to neutrality in the body, to activate the neutral and not the unnecessary. You inhibit so you can be consciously present during the wanting, the stimulus, and the reaction. This is how the force of life – the energy of life – can be resumed. You have to inhibit all the time so as not to interfere with the life force. This neutral is a king of balance where everything is working like a car. The engine is running but the car is not in gear. When you want to get in gear you do it with the same quality you have in neutral, that is with as little work as is necessary for the purpose.
When we have a problem – How am I going to answer; how am I going to use; from where am I going to act; is it important to say something; is it not important; do I have to say it; do I have to do it – you inhibit to be in contact with reasoning and with balance. Finally you say, “Now I can choose not to react, but proceed to the next step.”
This is a way of being. This is where we have to be most of our life. Inhibition. Don’t do it”
