After studying great inventors for a while, I discovered that they had a personal code of conduct that guided them. For instance, Benjamin Franklin had ‘The 13 commandments’ while Pythagoras had ‘The Golden Verses.’ These guidelines/commandments enabled these men to reach their full potential.
To emulate these masters, I created my code of conduct, which I named ‘The Commandments of the Unbounded Master.’
According to this code of conduct, the unbounded master must:
- Treat everyone equally regardless of their social status and physical appearance.
- Avoid gossip and idle conversations.
- Love his work dearly because it funds his daily needs and enables him to help others.
- Strive to do at least one good deed per day.
- Never provide secret knowledge to uninterested folks because ‘the lips of wisdom are closed, except to the ears of understanding.’
- Be thankful all day, and must have faith that everything is happening for his greatest good.
- Work on transcending the ego by recognizing and eradicating egoic behavior.
- Work on awakening his spirit-self.
- Take good care of his body because it is the temple of his spirit-self.
- Strive towards having a clear mind by embracing mindfulness.
- Never complain, and he should never listen to those who constantly complain since complaining solves nothing.
- Always remind himself that he is both a physical and spiritual representation of the Creator.
- Embrace joyfulness because, by creating him, the Creator gave him a chance to experience all the blessings of life.
- Always think about the hungry while eating, and must ask the Creator to provide for them.
- Meditate at least twice a day.
- Always think about the Creator and associate it with everything.
- Regularly find time for silence so that he listens to his intuitive voice.
- Never ever associate with pessimistic people.
- Study nature to understand the Divine.
- Pray for peace, harmony, and health for himself and all humanity before he sleeps.
- Always seek for the Truth for the Truth shall set him free.
- Avoid watching programs or reading books that add no value.
- Exploit his full potential.
- Read at least one non-fiction book per week.
- Study ancient history to pinpoint what’s hidden from the masses.
- Wish the best for others because what he wishes for others, he wishes for himself.
- Strive to awaken from the illusion of material existence, and constantly affirm that he is Divine.
- Respect the natural environment because he can’t survive without it.
- Always realize that the thing that makes him breathe is the same thing that created the world.
- Embrace all the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which include; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
You are free to add more principles you think I should incorporate in ‘the commandments of the unbounded master.’
