Spend time in meditation: A still body helps still our mind. In the stillness of meditation we come to observe an inner vibration apart from our physical sense of hearing, and apart from our thoughts. Tuning in to this always present, constant, self-sustaining vibration calms us even more.
The peace attained by observing this inner sound allows our mind to become very calm. Then we are able to listen to our inner voice of conscience which knows right from wrong and what is for the highest good of all concerned in our present dilemma.
Follow the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would like to be treated. This means to harm no one by words, deeds, or even thoughts. Thought vibrations travel between us over unseen paths, as the law of this universe is that for every action there is a comparable reaction.
When we initiate good acts, our reward is that good experiences happen to us. Initiate an evil or negative thought, word, or deed and the reward will bounce back as an unhappy or painful event. Like for like. In this light, if we keep a positive attitude and help as opportunity arises, we will feel good in the moment and set the stage for further positive happenings.
By following the golden rule and meditating we set the stage for our balanced development and add to the beauty of the masterpiece of our lives that we are creating.
Attitude makes a difference: When we keep a positive attitude in following the golden rule, we are more likely to see good solutions.
A simple chore is boring to some and joyful to others. How can this be? The action performed is the same. The difference lies in one's attitude.
When performing actions with only thoughts of how we ourselves will benefit, we don't find lasting peace, contentment, happiness. Self-centeredness causes our mind to continually think of ways to please itself. No feelings of joy are felt because the whims of the mind preoccupy our time.
A caring attitude for those around us brings up our heart feelings as a warmness we feel in our body and in our uplifted, expanded attitude.
When we perform our daily work with the attitude of caring, we feel good. Just the attitude of caring draws energy into our body. The more caring we become, building up our level of happiness, the more we see the wisdom of our positive actions.
