We are being guided, but God will not assist us without our cooperation.
Ten years from now, make sure that you can say you have chosen your life; not just settled on it.
Be skeptical but always listen. Take the position of a student.
Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. God will listen. Promise.
Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, arrogance, anger, jealousy envy and greed all flow from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance and that you will too.
Search for your True Self, but do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your journey, and yours alone. Others may walk by your side, but no one can take these steps for you.
Respect all that has been placed upon this earth. Every man, woman, child, ever creature, every living thing shares the same divine source.
Honor other people’s thoughts and words. Allow each person the right to personal expression but take none of what they say personally.
Never speak of others in way that you would not say to their face. The gossip that you put out into the world will have multiplied when your poison words return to you.
All people make mistakes and all mistakes have been forgiven by God, so therefore you can forgive them too.
Be truthful at all times. Honesty is evidence of one’s courage.
Keep yourself balanced. Your Mental Self, Spiritual Self, Emotional Self, and Physical Self, all need to be strong and healthy. Grow strong in spirit to cure emotional sicknesses. Exercise the body to strengthen the mind.
Make conscious decisions as to who you will be and how you will respond.
Be responsible for your own actions and respect the privacy and personal space of others. Unsolicited advice is an insult.
Share your good fortune with others. Practice generosity regularly.
Make no assumptions. You will end up very disappointed if you think everyone has the same heart you do.
Always do your best, because you will know when you do any less than you are capable of. Ultimately the relationship that you have with yourself sets the tone for all other relationships.
Forgive yourself for not knowing sooner what you know now. Learning isn’t always easy and if it seems easy, you may not actually be learning anything new.
Respect yourself. People accept what they believe they deserve. Therefore, you will allow people to treat you no better than, no less than, what you think you are worthy of.
Say yes more often to your instincts for you are being guided and remember that God will not assist you in any endeavor without your cooperation.
