  1. Good principles to live by. Except I’m not sure if I agree with the prohibition against gossiping. According to neurobiologists, human beings are hard wired to gossip and it serves an adaptive function. Gossiping about the negative things that happen to other people helps us prepare for those situations ourselves.


    • I think it means talking/judging others negatively to build up one’s own ego. Character assassination might be a better word. Talking about what you think is wrong with other people rather than looking in the mirror. It’s self defeating. You can’t work on your own character defects when you’re blinded by the perceived defects of others. ;)
