Love, integrity and compassion are inborn in all of us. We benefit greatly however when we learn to practice them in effective ways.
In the Buddhist, and in many other spiritual traditions, our 'right conduct' is a primary pathway to happiness and enlightened living. In psychological terms, it can lead us to fearless love, freedom from ego-centeredness, and contentment with ourselves and our predicaments. Most of all, we find the joy of living our lives at a heart level.
We will find specific psychological and spiritual practices that can usher us into a new way of being alive -- as cheerful agents of the goodness that is in us all. Our choices for integrity and loving-kindness reflect that goodness and help us co-create a world of justice, peace, and love. This is an owners' guide to being an upright and loving human.
