Living with generosity, ethics, patience, joyful effort, concentration and wisdom

These qualities are called The Six Perfections: Generosity, Ethics, Patience, Joyful or Persistent Effort, Concentration and Wisdom…the goal being to progress in developing and “perfecting” these qualities in oneself and one’s everyday life…

And a few other special qualities…embedded within the perfections
qualities that might enhance one’s own life and the life of others…

compassion, comfort, kindness and nurturing


And so….
a few qualities that might enhance each of our own days
as we offer them to ourselves
and others we interact with each day….



~The beauty of some light shining through….

    Those qualities have a special light of their own, but are particularly beautiful with the sunlight adding a little more shine. 🙂

    It seems this is in perfect timing again… as I started working today with a heart centered counselor, and I am eager to see what insights and clarity I gain. I need persistence, patience and concentration for this program to work. Beautiful photos, the sunlight adds as Robin commented, more shine.


    • I love afternoons when the sun shines through that image in the window…lights them all up. And yes, persistence, patience and concentration enhance everything we are developing or enriching… I think they all intertwine and support each other. 😀

    Perfecting all 6 perfections would keep me BUSY for some time to come. 😉

    Nice to dip in the basket and take out one each day. I work Sundays so for tomorrow I’m going to chose … “Compassion”


  5. Wonderful options–I like the perfections as you list them. The photo of the disk in the sunlight is just spectacular.


  6. I love the idea of using the perfections for inspiration…and the sun shining through them each afternoon reminds me to keep encouraging each one of them…


I'd love to "hear" your ideas about this....
