Heart of gold: 4 Key Principles

Some thoughts after studying the 12-steps and other "classics on becoming" (most especially this book) about four key principles of a happy life:

Choice: We choose our own reality in every moment of every day.

Truth: An unyielding dedication to the truth will allow us to see things as they really are, which deflates fear and shows us how to choose a better reality.

Love: Love must be the motivator behind all that we do. A love of God and our neighbor frees our hearts to be able to recognize the truth in every situation and thus choose a better reality.

Endurance: We must do these things through all joys and through all sorrows. 

Love you all.

  1. Heather, well said. I love the book and concepts and I need many reminders and refreshers on them. I look forward to more posts of the kind!
