Kabalarian Ethics of Right Thinking
Written by the founder, Alfred J. Parker
Appreciate and respect the Power of the Word (speech); never misuse this
power by swearing, vulgarity, lying and deceit, falsifying another’s statement,
or destroying the reputation of others.
Strive to govern moods and habits so as to create peace and happiness with
others through happy, constructive thoughts, through little acts of generosity
and service, and through seeing good and God in others. Acts of giving never go unrewarded.
Always endeavour to develop an open mind, giving credit to others for mental
effort even though they may not as yet have discovered the true light of wisdom.
Stand in awe at the threshold of wisdom in humbleness and in deep respect.
Remember that wisdom expressed through you is not of your creation but always
was. Your endeavour to fit and balance your mind to your higher consciousness
of wisdom is your sacred duty and not optional.
Only through constant striving to eliminate bad or negative thoughts and
habits can your mind feel justly proud to be a sacred part of Divine Consciousness.
Mistakes sometimes occur – a mistake is not evil – it may occur through
wrong evaluation or sometimes through over-anxiousness, or comparison,
or undue optimism. A first mistake may be classified as an error in judgment
if a lesson is learned from the experience; if not, then it is a conscious
mistake upon a negative plane of mind, and serious and punishable through
the law of reaction and your conscious realization that you deliberately
created your own test and must now find a solution.
Kill out ego and false pride. Never take the know-it-all attitude, for to
do so is to kill out natural incentive and progress.
Remember that your mind is the greatest instrument in the universe.
As you think, so are you, because the nature of your thoughts indicates
the plane of mind to which you are tuned; thus, your thinking and you are
one. If you did but realize the power of your own mind for good or
destructiveness, you would check every thought and utterance. Do not say
wrong or hurtful things for fun or to build up your own importance. Remember
false pride comes before a fall. Never negate your thoughts and ideas; never
say "can’t" or depreciate your ability to equal or better the performances of
others. What others have done, you can do, and do better, but do not say so;
prove it in greater application than others, for only by effort and application
shall your works be known. Never say idle and boastful statements; say only
that which is logical and truthful. Learn to know when to speak, and always
express your thoughts in a refined and dignified way so as to leave the best
Be systematic; proceed step by step, and learn to finish the things you start.
Never make a promise that you cannot, or do not, intend to carry out; thus will
you always speak truth. Align yourself always upon the side of justice, truth,
and honesty. Do not meet others upon the plane of anger, wrongdoing, or
thoughtlessness. Always use the power of analysis, particularly when in doubt.
Never attempt to alibi that which you know is wrong. Keep your mind always
upon a constructive plane of thinking. Remember your sins will always find you out.
Always seek for an ideal, an objective, and the proper method of application.
Create a refined and individual personality, a happy and generous one. Develop
clean and tidy habits, body cleanliness, and a clean mind. Be conservative,
yet creative, in your dress. Avoid showiness in dress and loudness in speech.
Make others want to pattern themselves after you: that is a well-deserved
compliment, and indicates adherence to Kabalarian ethics of right thinking.
