Meditation on Universal Values
Universal values are time tested, allowing easeful, peaceful, happy living within their guidelines. Perhaps the most basic and accepted being to treat others as we wish to be treated.
To begin this meditation sit quietly and prepare by doing a few sets of even breathing exercises, such as breathe in 2 counts; breathe out 2 counts; breathe in 2 counts and continue until you feel balanced and peaceful.
Thoughts for reflection
When the foundation of our character is strong and stable we naturally act in ways reinforcing peace, ease, happiness. Block upon block of positive action for our own and others' highest good creates a large castle of a beautiful life, with spacious lawns to play upon, and sweet smelling gardens to lounge in for rejuvenation.
Traditional values are the strong floor we walk upon in every activity. They support our positive attitudes and actions. Underlying, they support but do not interfere with our choices. We still use free will every way, but when we are tired or not sure what to do, we can sit down and rest on a strong value knowing we are safe while deciding how to proceed.
Nurture traditional values, keep them in mind as a safety net while walking the tightrope of life's adventures.
For a refresher course on the content of traditional values consult any Holy Scripture. They provide a basis until we learn to listen to and follow the inner guidance of our conscience consistently.
Traditional values underlying our actions are a basis for growth in the world. Let us blossom as beautiful flowers by growing roots in these strong values.
"Roots sunk in tried and true values
Allow harmoniously flowing movement in the world."
