Cultivating kind actions has been arranged into — WISDOM — ETHICS — and VIRTUES, and each of these generalized qualities has four mature behaviors. Each of those actions requires some forethought, but they can be learned, and they can become habitual with a little practice. Each can be practiced as a quiet meditation to help make external behaviors in anticipated routine situations become automatic.


  1. Compassion toward everyone for coping with their unresolvable problems.
  2. Love expressed as kindness by exposing helpful alternatives to their problems.
  3. Helping others by expressing enthusiasm for their accomplishments.
  4. Delight in raising others up at the expense of lowering oneself.

The following posts expand on defining these four basic virtues.
