Do No Harm

How do we create a safe place to be?
How we remember we are making up the world we see?
How can we forgive humanity?
How do we love everyone, including you and me?

To do no harm in our home means do not destroy or hurt what is of value.
To do no harm means to think and speak no negativity!
To do no harm means forgiving the problems we see.
To do no harm means step away from hurtful possibilities.

It may mean changing to programs and movies we watch.
It might mean buying no products that harm animals or the earth.
It might mean we stop eating foods and drink that are not good for our bodies.
It might mean we forgive anger and anxiety about our choices.

No matter what the issue, encounter or relationship, I can ask “ What Can I do?”
What can I do to be truly helpful?
What can I do to make things better?
What can I do to bring healing?
What can I do to show love?
What can I do to undo the wrong?
What can I do to make amends?
What can I do to bring peace?
What can I do to forgive?

Forgiveness is the key to happiness.
Forgiveness offers everything I want.
Forgiveness sets us free.
Forgiveness returns sanity.
Forgiveness opens the door to Love.
Forgiveness is the way to heal.
Forgiveness changes our minds.

When I choose to do no harm, I do not fight.
When I choose to do not harm, I listen to the inner voice for Love.
When I choose to do no harm, I give what is helpful.
When I choose to do no harm, I heal the past.

When I choose no harm, I do not gossip.
When I choose no harm, I send no curses.
When I choose no harm, I think and speak and behave consciously with respect and kindness.
When I choose no harm, I take impeccable care of my mind, body and Spirit.

Life is precious and delicate and so are we.
Our time here is brief and we can offer Wisdom or ignorance.
Our ways of living can give Life and Goodness or death and harm.
Our choices can bring loving reminders or hateful resentment.

We are the choosers.
Now is our time.
Let us do no harm!

The 12 Principles of Attitudinal Healing 
1.       The essence of our being is love.
2.       Health is inner peace, healing is letting go of fear.
3.       Giving and receiving are the same.
4.       We can let go of the past and of the future.
5.       Now is the only time there is, and each instant is for giving.
6.       We can learn to love ourselves and others by forgiving rather than by judging.
7.       We can become love finders rather than fault finders.
8.       We can choose and direct ourselves to be peaceful inside, regardless of what is happening outside.
9.       We are students and teachers to each other.
10.    We can focus on the whole of life, rather than the fragments.
11.    Since love is eternal, change need not be viewed as fearful.
12.    We can always perceive others as either extending love or giving a call for help.

Attitudinal Healing affirms that we are responsible for our thoughts and whatever feelings we experience.
Attitudinal Healing encourages us to re-examine our relationships, bringing them into the present by releasing past judgments and grievances.
Attitudinal Healing reminds us that perception is a mirror of what is in our mind.
