Was sorting through some things and came across a print out of this in an old wallet:
Express compassion in your actions toward those who are suffering physically or emotionally.
Anything that comes to you should be received as a gift from providence.
Do not hoard things that are not required.
Give away things to those who are in need.
Keep busy in selfless service.
Reduce your needs to a minimum.
Avoid reading books or participating in discussions that are contrary to your self-developement.
Do not indulge in any action that may cause harm to others in any form, indirectly or directly.
Look for good qualities in others, rather than looking for their shortcomings.
Do not get involved in unnecessary talks.
Do not expect praise for your good actions.
Anger, hate, and jealousy appear in the mind by comparing oneself with others. They should be replaced by love toward others.
Be humble and give respect to others.
Ask for forgiveness of any undesired actions, done knowingly or unknowingly.
Perform your duties toward your family, society and country with pure and selfless intent.
Do not let laziness or dullness control your mind.
Be honest to others as well as to yourself.
Be firm in your spiritual convictions."
- Baba Hari Dass, A Master of Astanga Yoga
