The right-doer will avoid those acts of personal pleasure and gratification which by their nature bring annoyance, pain, or suffering to others, no matter how insignificant those actions may appear to be.
He will begin by putting away these; he will gain a knowledge of the unselfish and true by first sacrificing the selfish and untrue.
He will learn not to speak or act in anger, or envy, or resentment, but will study how to control his mind and will restore it to calmness before acting; and, most important of all, he will avoid, as he would the drinking of deadly poison, those acts of trickery, deceit, double-dealing in order to gain some personal profit or advantage, and which lead, sooner or later, to exposure and shame for the doer of them.
If a man is prompted to do a thing which he needs to conceal, and which he would not lawfully and frankly defend if it were examined of a witness, he should know by that, that it is a wrong act, and therefore to be abandoned without one further moment of consideration.
Word of the week – Sacrifice – a loss or something you give up, usually for the sake of a better cause.
Ask yourself: What do selfishness and untrue do for you?
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!
