Live true

The way to care is not to find fault with others for failing to care. The way to truly, effectively care is to show, with your actions and your life, how you care.

The way to communicate a truth is not to insist on it, but to demonstrate it, to live it. The way to convince is not to argue, but to understand.

Being of assistance to others does not mean making them indebted to you. Give, not to boost your ego or influence, but to express the beauty of being alive.

To truly enjoy life, let go of any limitations you have placed on joy. Instead of setting up elaborate situations and expecting joy to come from them, simply choose to give joy to any situation.

Rather than striving to deny or hide from or fight against the truth, embrace it. Accept what is true, and put the power of truth on your side.

Though the universe is delightfully complex, life, at its heart, is not particularly complicated. Live true to who you are and though it won’t always be easy, you’ll live well.
