  11. 11. MAINTAIN SELF RESPECTMAINTAIN SELF RESPECT  Keep Faith In Goodness  Keep Pure Feelings In Your Heart  Make Your Inner Stage Strong  An End To Negativity  Sincere Remembrance Of God  Selfless Service To Others  Stay Beyond Limitations Of The Mind : Temporary Desires Or Expectations Lead To Disheartenment Or a False Sense Of Ego.  God , Our Unlimited Supreme Parent , Is Giving Souls Of The World The Unlimited Inheritance Of Peace.  Success Is Ours When We Allow God To Work Through Us.
  12. 12. SPIRITUAL POWER  We Serve Through Maintaining Spiritual Practice Over A Long Period Of Time  The Spiritual Strength We Gain Through This Sets Us Apart From Others And Makes Us Examples That Others Can Follow  I Believe Spiritual Power Is Fundamentally Linked To The Level Of One’s Consciousness.  The Lower The Level Of Consciousness , The Less We Have The Ability To Upload Consistency Between The Abstract And The Concrete.  The Higher The Level Of Consciousness , The Higher The Level Of Awareness , And The Higher The Ability To Work With Unity.
  13. 13. CARING AND SHARING  If You Don’t Love , If You Don’t Experience Love In It’s Totality , You Cannot Become Fulfilled Because Absolute Fulfillment Is Love  If You Don’t Experience Caring And Sharing , You Cannot Become Complete Because Caring And Sharing Are Wholeness By Definition  If You Are Only Interested In ‘ My ‘ Thing , e.g. ‘ My ‘ Salvation , ‘ My ‘ Enlightenment , You Will Never Be Enlightened Because Individual Enlightenment Is Always Connected To All Others

His Personality Was Filled With Honesty , Humility And Truth  I , Too , Should Have Those Same Qualities. It Is These Qualities That Create The Sparkle Of Inner Radiance.
