From Buddhism: the Noble Eight-fold Path and 4 Noble Truth
The Four Noble Truths:
- Path to Suffering
- Path to Wellbeing – utilizing the Noble Eight-fold Path lead to the true path to wellbeing
The Noble Eight-fold Path:
- Right Perception/Views – free from prejudice, illusion using all our senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, body, and mind)
- Right Concentration – focus on the positive things that make oneself and others better
- Right Mindfulness – cherish good and pure thoughts for all we say and do, be present at the moment
- Right Thinking – to turn away from the evils of this world and direct our minds toward righteousness
- Right Speech – speak kindly to everyone, and to refrain from gossipings or harmful talk
- Right Actions – to live the Teaching of the Buddha daily
- Right Diligence – Continue to practice the noble eight-fold path and train our mind
- Right Livelihood – Earn our living through good deeds and entail no evil consequences
Accomplishing the first three points will lead us to point 4-6. Right Dilligence is necessary to continue the pattern of the noble eight-fold path which will eventually lead to right livelihood.
Points 4-6 may also be contrived as Karma.
