What Should You Do?

  • What do the teachings of my spiritual tradition, or of a wisdom tradition I trust, suggest that a person should do to handle such a situation?
  • How would someone I admire handle it?
  • What is my personal preference—what feels good to me?
  • What action of mine would best serve the situation and also satisfy my desire to fulfill my responsibilities?
  • Sit quietly, attending to the breath until your mind is still, and see what answer comes forth from your inner self.
