Best rules

The Ten Commandments as a template for basic guidelines of contentment;

1.) The first One is basically to be in awe of the art of creation and praise the source of life. The gift of life should be beyond comprehension of mere earthly perspective.

2.) The demand to have no graven images is the cause of physical attachments and the desire to create false values by representation tricks and distractions.

3.) The tendency to take The Lord's name in vain would be the effect of frustration from the gift of choice. This would be the denial of self-responsibility by blaming "higher" forces.

4.) Remembering the sabbath is about getting enough down-time. When timing develops pressure it gets out of balance so the healthiest habit is to get enough sleep. A great doctor told his son, "even if you can't sleep, you can get enough rest."

5.) Caregivers should inspire the best respect. The foundation of self-respect depends on our parents so always strive to appreciate their best intentions.

6.) The loss of life is a natural pattern but when man over-rides this balance he causes victim mentality. Premature loss of life under any condition has degrees of pity. The understanding of being sorry may be a powerful source of health.

7.) Betrayal loses the ability to be intimate. Intimacy is the heart of soul.

8.) Thou shall not steal is the basis for sharing (power). On some level we all know that we should pay for what we get.

9.) False witness gets to the possibility that denial is the seed of depression. Honesty leads to trustworthy observation (truth) and gets more obvious with investment / appreciation.

10) Coveting keeps us from developing our own style. Individual style feeds the growth of a society. Social concerns keep our world healthy.

Exceptions were made before rules or we couldn't be made so exceptional!

Very impressive, this is the kind of philosophy I like, from the heart and mind, and yet so humble.
