A Single Standard of Conduct
[Having a single standard of conduct requires the courage of doing what is right and accepting the consequences]

1. Commit to absolute standards
[absolute standards such as truth, non-violence and love]

2. Commit to the journey
[Staying on the path requires faith and perseverance in the face of obstacles that will surely appear]

3. Commit to training your conscience
[Do the inner work needed to hone your intuitive judgement and maintain perspective]

4. Commit to reducing attachments
[Let go of the desire for power, privilege and possessions; these will not serve you on this journey]

5. Commit to minimizing secrecy
[Seek openness and create trust]
