Principles for living from POGH

In my book, People of the Green Hills, the people have a spiritual guidebook called Journey that the archaeologists find and are able to translate.  The People had seven tenets or principles that they lived by, and I find them comforting, particularly since I have done something stupid and I’m kicking myself over it all day.  Here they are:

  1. The meaning of life is the experience of it.  IMG_4391
  2. Man is not the master of creation; he is part of it.   IMG_3520
  3. Every person is of equal importance, every gift of equal value.   XXX CINDERELLA MOV JY 0324 .JPG A ENT GBR EN
  4. A society is only as strong as its families; as the family goes, so goes civilization.0007
  5. Live simply and celebrate often.Family
  6. Anything worth doing is worth doing beautifully.  Michelangelo's Sistine 1
  7. Treat others as you wish to be treated; no other laws are necessary.IMG_4586

These are not earth-shaking; nor are they particularly original, but sometimes something just needs to be said, even though we know it already.  I know that this helps me today.  Hopefully it will help you too.
