____ Striving for an ethical Lifestyle
 
Striving for an ethical life style serves as a
helping factor on the path. This means that

we follow a vegetarian diet, i.e. to nourish
  ourselves without killing

we do not hinder the growth of our con-
  sciousness through the use of intoxicating
  drugs (including alcohol and nicotine)

we maintain the principles of truthfulness and
  universal love in thought, word and deed.
