    • Cooperation Cooperation exists when people work together toward a common goal. One who cooperates creates good wishes and pure feelings for others and the task. When cooperating, there is a need to know what is needed. Sometimes an idea is needed, sometimes we need to let go of ouridea. Sometimes we need to lead and sometimes we need to follow. Cooperation is governed by the principle of mutual respect. One who cooperates receives cooperation. Where there is love, there is cooperation. By staying aware of my values, I can give cooperation. Courage, consideration, caring and sharing provide a foundation for cooperation. From Living Values Activities for Children Ages 8-14.

    • Happiness When I have love and peace inside, happiness just comes. Happiness is a state of peace in which there is no upheaval or violence. Give happiness and take happiness. When there is a feeling of hope, there is happiness. Good wishes for everyone give happiness inside. Happiness naturally comes with pure and selfless actions. Lasting happiness is a state of contentment within.When one is content with oneself, happiness comes automatically. When my words express ‘give flowers instead of thorns,’ I create a happier world. Happiness follows giving happiness, sorrow follows giving sorrow. From Living Values Activities for Children Ages 8-14. Copyright © Living Values: An Educational Program, Inc. www.livingvalues.net
    • Honesty Honesty is telling the truth. When I am honest, I feel clear inside. A person worthy of confidence is honest and true. Honest thoughts, words and actions create harmony. Honesty is to use well what has been entrusted to you. Honesty is the best policy. There is a deep relationship between honesty and friendship.When I am honest, I can learn and help others learn to be giving. Greed is sometimes at the root of dishonesty.

Love is being a trustworthy friend. “Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living beings and all of nature.” - Albert EinsteinThe real law lives in the kindness of our hearts.

    • Peace Peace is more than the absence of war. Peace is living in harmony and not fighting with others. If everyone in the world were peaceful, this would be a peaceful world. Peace is being quiet inside. Peace is a calm and relaxed state of mind.“Peace must begin with each one of us. Through quiet and serious reflection on its meaning, new and creative ways can be found to foster understanding, friendships and cooperation among all peoples.” -Javier Perez de Cuellar, Former Secretary General of the United Nations From Living Values Activities for Children Ages 8-14.

    • Responsibility If we want peace, we have the responsibility to be peaceful. If we want a clean world, we have the responsibility to care for nature. Responsibility is doing your share. Responsibility is carrying out duties with integrity. When one is responsible, there is the contentment of having made a contribution.As a responsible person, I have something worthwhile to offer— so do others.

    • Tolerance Peace is the goal. Tolerance is the method. Tolerance is being open and receptive to the beauty of differences. Tolerance is mutual respect through mutual understanding.
