- Accept your own helplessness in your spiritual life. Allow it to be okay not to be in control, but to be open to receive.
- Be sorrowful for your missteps. Be sincerely sorrowful allows the chains to be cut so that you are not tempted to go back to old lifestyles.
- Be willing to see yourself as you really are. Be aware of yourself so that if you are given a correction, you can see it and make the correction without defensiveness or denial.
- Be hungry to do righteous things, to be merciful, caring, and compassionate for others. Compassion is not personal, it’s not about you. It’s about others.
- Be pure of heart to be peaceful so you can bring peace to others. Allow yourself to be blessed with peace so you can bring peace to others.
