Because I believe in the power of love, I first love myself; then seeing myself in every person I encounter, I love and experience them in a way that builds trust.

Because I believe we are all connected, I honor that connection and recognize I am the source of everything I experience.

Because I believe in truth, I deal honestly with myself and use integrity in my interactions with others.

Because I value commitment, trust and honesty, I cultivate relationships grounded in respect, consideration and co-operation that enhances all our lives.

Because I believe in the synergy of two or more open minds actively engaging, I have conscious communications that push my thinking and allow me to discover new ideas.

Because I realize I am a human being, not just a human doing, I balance my life between mind, body and spirit.

Because I find meaning in all aspects of my life, I consciously choose where I place my attention.

Because I appreciate beauty and our artistic ability to create, I recognize and honor the creator in myself, empowering that force in whatever manner it chooses to manifest.

Because I believe in purpose, I consciously choose how to spend my time, doing those things I find fulfilling which move me towards my goals.

Because I believe in personal responsibility, I choose how I react to each stimulus I face and consciously determine my responses.

Because I view challenges as opportunities, I seek out new information as a matter of learning.

Because I believe in abundance and prosperity, realizing there is enough for everyone, I rightfully claim what I desire without guilt, judgment or conditions.

Because I value the body in which I live, I treat it with respect, using good nutrition, following an exercise program and maintaining good health.

Because I believe an uncluttered environment is an uncluttered mind, allowing me to accomplish more, I keep my self and my environment organized.

Because I believe unto those to whom much is given, much is expected, I make contributions so that this world is somehow changed and a bit better than I found it.
