1. Be happy, always. (happiness is a choice, not a response to pleasing stimuli!)
2. Have a private open-ended conversation with God. (every day for at least a half hour, don't cheat yourself out of quality time with Abba!)
3. Judge other people favorably. (even when they are severely flawed, focus on their positive traits- they're in there somewhere!)
This is not a religious doctrine as much as it is the secret to heaven on earth.
