1. Discover and Pursue Your Life's Purpose

Strive to discover who you are, what is your life mission, and what you are trying to become. It is necessary to lead a responsible and fully awake life. If you don't try to figure out who you are and what you believe then you are content to just exist and what's the point in that? What is the worth in your existence?  >>>

"Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings so that you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for."

2. Care for your soul

The most important task in life is caring for your soul. Your soul is the real person, who you really are. It is the center of your character and what makes you who you are. It is the basis of your thoughts, feelings, values, and decisions.

The most important task you face is realizing your potential as a person, who you are. The state of your soul makes you either foolish or wise. Just like the body, the soul should be kept healthy.  An unhealthy soul is ignorant of the true priorities in life. You can keep your soul healthy by introspection and ridding yourself of ignorance.

"He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature."

3. Be a good person and you will not be harmed by outside forces

If your soul is good, then outside forces cannot not harm you. If the most important part of you is your soul and the soul is not physical but inward then it cannot be harmed. The body may be harmed by another person, but the soul cannot unless you allow yourself to become susceptible to others. Search constantly for wisdom by way of practicing self-evaluation if you wish your soul to be liberated from outside harm.

"Envy is the ulcer of the soul."
