Reflect in silence and observe the world and its opportunities without judgement.


2. The Law of Giving

Give generously and receive gratefully.

Be fully aware of the consequences of your decisions on yourself and others.


4. The Law of Least Effect

Accept your problems and take responsibility for solving them.


5. The Law of Intention and Desire

Reflect on your desires and accept the ones you can’t satisfy.

  • let solutions emerge in the face of uncertainty.
  • see life as full of exciting opportunities.

Use your unique talents to help others.
