Treat others the same way as you would like them to treat you. Never brood over the past. When grief overpowers you, do not recollect similar incidents from your past and add to your grief; instead, recollect happy incidents! Draw consolation and strength from such memories and raise yourself above the surging waters of sorrow. Seek the light always; be full of confidence and zest. Do not yield to despair, for it can never produce results. It only worsens the problem, for it darkens the intellect and plunges you in doubt. Take up the path of spiritual practice very enthusiastically. Half-hearted, halting steps will not yield fruit. It is like cleaning a slushy area by a stream of water. If the current of the stream is slow, the slush cannot be cleared. The stream must flow full and fast, driving everything before it, so that the slush might be scoured clean.
