There is a lot going on both before and after ‘attitude’. Our thoughts and feelings tend to comprise our attitudes towards anything from the other person, to the weather to the world. And shaping our thoughts and feelings are our beliefs and values. Both of which tend to have been programmed into what is sometimes called the subconscious. And then there is ‘intention’, which is also shaped by our beliefs and which also influences the formation of our attitude. You could say that between intention and action is attitude. An awareness of our attitude tells us much about our self at any given moment. Five attitudes in particular are probably worthy of aspiration and the challenge of conscious creation.


When you extend true love to everyone with selfless motivation that is an attitude of kindness

When you send good wishes and generate pure feelings towards those who are in deep sorrow that is an attitude of mercy.

When you see the virtues rather than the weaknesses in others that is an attitude of compassion

When you bless and uplift someone, even as they defame you, that is an attitude of forgiveness.

When you tolerate a situation and take responsibility as well as give cooperation, even when not appreciated, that is an attitude of humility and self-respect.

Each is also worthy of reflection.
