Patience, compassion, gentleness, humility, respect, detachment, self-control, effort, joy, love in spirit, reflection, restfulness, seriousness, emotional control, concentration, action and effort, and altruistic charity. 

Each of these traits sums up the foundation of every religious and spirituality text that I have read over the past twenty plus years.  And I have read earnestly: In search of what, I wasn’t always sure.  

But as I compiled that list today, I realized that I have found what I’ve been searching for because that list is pretty complete. 

So what I’m thinking today is this: These 17 characteristics are guide posts and clues to a greater sense of happiness, peace and appreciation for the life we have been granted. 

Now, as in any search it gets down to this: What will I do since I’ve found the keys to open the door?
