In all forms of progress, avoidance of the bad always precedes acceptance and knowledge of the good, just as a child at school learns to do its lessons right by having repeatedly pointed out to it how it has done them wrong.
If one does not know what is wrong and how to avoid it, how can he know what is right and how to practice it?
Bad, or untrue, actions are those that spring from a consideration of one’s own happiness only and ignore the happiness of others, that arise in violent disturbances of the mind and unlawful desires, or that call for concealment in order to avoid undesirable complications.
Good, or true, actions are those that spring from a consideration for others, that arise in calm reason and harmonious thought framed on moral principles, or that will not involve the doer in shameful consequences if brought into the full light of day.
Word of the week – Concealment – the action of hiding something or preventing it from being known.
Ask yourself: What’s your process for tracking progress?
Speaking With a Purpose: “I help you bridge the gap between … Where you are versus where you want to be.” My ultimate goal – help you become a better you!
