So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart .
Trouble no one about their religion , respect others in their religion , respect others in their view , and demand that they respect yours .
Love your life , perfect your life , beautify all things in your life .
Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people .
Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide .
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend , even a stranger , when in a lonely place .
Show respect to all people and grovel to none .
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living .
If you see no reason for giving thanks , the fault lies only in yourself .
Abuse no one and no thing , for abuse turns and robs the spirit of its vision .
