Doing what is right

Sometimes certain precautions are necessary

March 3rd 2011
If you want to do something wrong, you instinctively feel you should hide, so as not to be caught and punished. And if you want to do something good, you think it is fine to be seen! Some people, out of vanity, even flaunt themselves, thus provoking opposition and arousing spite and jealousy. If you are thinking of making someone a gift, again, be careful: it might be better if there were no witnesses. And sometimes it would even be preferable for the person you are benefiting not to know where it came from, for your gesture may provoke unexpected reactions from them. In all your dealings with others, try to take into account the complex relationship between each person’s lower and higher natures.
