Signs I.

God created the universe and from His virtues fashioned laws to bind the universe. He created physical laws to control the movements of the stars, the orbits of the planets, and the rising and the falling of the seas.

Happiness IV.

The body must learn self-discipline to achieve happiness. It must be strengthened. It must learn new skills and practice those skills so that it grows stronger.

Happiness III.

The lazy are not happy nor are the greedy nor the lustful. They gain satisfaction from bodily delights, but these impulses are not happiness. They are a brief respite in the darkness. They weaken the mind's control over the body and weaken the body itself. A body chained to desire is lethargic and lacks the... Continue Reading →

Happiness II.

Satisfaction is not happiness. A cow is satisfied eating grass all day, but it has been bred to be satisfied.

Freedom IV

Those who follow their every whim and desire are slaves. They are enslaved by their bodies, for they have made false gods of vice. Anger and self-loathing shall be their reward. A human is not a cow. One should never be dependent upon the whims of another, eating grass in a paddock, patiently waiting for... Continue Reading →

Freedom III

The body is free when it follows the dictates of the mind. To do so, it must resist addiction and bad habits. The lungs must breathe air and the mouth must drink water and eat food, but the body can be free of those who wish to control or manipulate it. A body subservient to... Continue Reading →

Freedom II

The mind is free when it follows virtue and rejects vice. It is free when it listens to the soul and maintains its authority over the body. To do so, it must harden its will and discipline its thoughts and desires, so that it leads them rather than being led by them. Such a mind... Continue Reading →

Freedom I

God made each soul free. This is the soul's eternal condition.

The Straight Path IV

The straight path passes many milestones and demands many deeds. It calls on some to raise children and others to resist corruption. Yet regardless of the deed, the straight path demands righteous action. The Straight Path: A Religious Guide to Finding and Fulfilling One's Purpose, p. 3

Honour

Honour is to act with respect and dignity towards oneself and others. It is to think the truth, speak the truth and act truthfully. It is achieved when thought, word and act are one. The Straight Path: A Religious Guide to Finding and Fulfilling One's Purpose, p. 27.
