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. Proper actions based on clear perceptions and forethought of results.
  2. Honest relationships with oneself and everyone else.
  3. Earning one’s living by producing socially valued things.
  4. A personal demeanor that entices honest behavior from everyone.

The following posts expand on defining these four basic virtues.
