  • Follow the golden rule:
    • "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" or in simpler terms "treat others the way you want others to treat you."
      • Don't do unto others what you don't want others to do unto you.
  • Love transcends all. Express your love in thought or feeling, in words, in gestures, in deeds or in your conduct.
  • Prosperity comes with work, determination and focus to follow you goals, hopes and dreams. Hope is inherent in all of us. You can beat a person down but if he has a shred of hope in him, he will stand up and fight. Hope with a hint of possibilities can help lead a person to prosperity. Share your prosperity, share your abundance, share your knowledge, share your acquisitions and most of all share the love that is in your heart. Prosperity is threefold: Material prosperity, Intellectual prosperity, and spiritual prosperity. The acquisition of material and intellectual prosperity does not guarantee you happiness. Reaching for spiritual prosperity touches happiness, it touches love. For humanity to prosper, we must share, we must be involved. Humans are born selfish! Parents and Adults must teach children to share. As you chip away at your "rock of selfishness", sharing becomes easier. Conversations and relationships become less & less difficult.
  • The instinct for survival and the freedom of choice combined with the inherent need to belong breeds vanity in every human being. We need to discipline our thoughts, words and deeds so we may successfully do these 3:
  1. Do not Cheat
    • One of the hardest thing to do. Almost instinctively we try to cheat when trying to have, attain or crave something that we don't have. When we cheat, we do not only lie to others, we lie to ourselves.
  2. Do not Insult
    • We learn to tease (insult) as children. When teased, children get very angry and they emotionally get hurt. As we grow to be adults we become experts at insulting each other. Battles, wars, and killings are started by simple insults. A person who insults another does not respect the other person. If you respect an individual or anything you will not insult. GIVE RESPECT. DO NOT EXPECT RESPECT.
    • Do not make a mockery of the shortcomings of others.
  3. Do not Deprive
    • To take away, remove, deny, keep away, withhold from the enjoyment or possession. Deprivation of life, communication, freedom, education, food, shelter, (basic needs), etc... When an individual is denied of certain privileges, not because he or she has done something wrong but because his/her culture or society simply dictates it, is a form of deprivation.
  • Find atonement when you Cheat, Insult or Deprive. The first step towards atonement is forgiveness. You must find the humility to forgive yourself and others. Do not get stuck in resentment and harbor hatred and vengeance and the idea of getting even. Forgive but do not forget. Learn from your experience so it may not repeat itself. At the end of the day, thank GOD for all your experiences (bad or good), thank God for your passion, thank God that you are human and have emotions.
  • Repentance or atonement is for the offender himself. It is his way of setting himself free. Apology or penance done for the offended only satisfies the need for retribution. However, forgiveness without the need for retribution will set you free. The yearning for getting even vanishes into thin air. You become a better person.
  • Our thoughts, words and deeds always have consequences. Ultimately,We will be held accountable for the positive or negative effects of our thoughts, words and deeds.
