- We all have opinions based on limited knowledge: who can know, for example, how peace might come to the Middle East? Tread carefully, knowing your limitations. Be moderate in your views, except where you have good reason to be passionate. Even then, be moderate in your expression.
- Imagine yourself in front of you and become aware of your own stress, suffering, and dissatisfaction. Feel compassion for yourself. On the inhale, breathe in suffering and take it into your heart's sphere of light. Breathe out soothing compassionate energy.
- Investigate the charities in your local area, and get involved with the ones that appeal to you. Giving just a few hours per week, or a weekday evening, could well end up being worth more than a thousand dollars in donations.
