Living Positively

Living Positively ~ Ways to approach life!

  • We should teach people to be authentic, to be aware of their inner selves and to hear their inner-feeling voices.
  • We should teach people to become world citizens.
  • We should help people discover their calling in life, their vocation, fate or destiny. This is especially focused on finding the right career.
  • We should teach people that life is precious, that there is joy to be experienced in life, and if people are open to seeing the good and joyous in all kinds of situations, it makes life worth living.
  • We must accept the person as he or she is and help the person learn their inner nature. From real knowledge of aptitudes and limitations we can know what to build upon, what potentials are really there.
  • We must see that person’s basic needs are satisfied
  • We should refresh consciousness, teaching the person to appreciate beauty and the other good things in nature and in living.
  • We should teach people that self-control is good, and complete abandon is bad. It takes control to improve the quality of life in all areas.
  • We should teach people to transcend their daily issues and grapple with the serious problems in life. These include problems of injustice, pain, suffering, and death.
  • We must teach people to be good choosers. They must be given practice in making good choices.
