16 Ways of Impeccability

1. If you open it - close it.
2. If you turn it on - turn it off.
3. If you unlock it - lock it.
4. If you move it - put it back.
5. If it belongs to someone else and you want it, get permission.
6. If you borrow it, return it.
7. If you don't know how to operate it, leave it alone.
8. If you use it - take care of it.
9. If you break it - repair it.
10. If you can't fix it CALL SOMEONE who can!!
11. If you mess it up -- clean it up.
12. If you said you would - do it (i.e., walk your talk).
13. Forgive completely when you forgive.
14. Speak your truth ... if you blow it, own it.
15. Whatever you are presently doing, give it a 100%.
16. If it will brighten someone's day, say it.

What Ways of Impeccability would you add for the modern day warrior?

Anthony,

Actually... Since I willing to eat it, I am willing to kill it. Understand the cycle of life to death, and death to life. Image

Jackie: I'm printing your post out as I type this response. I will hang it in both of my kids rooms. Thanks.

To Anthony: Yes, if I kill it (fishing), and I do not eat it, I give it to Bill Glasheen sensei. He'll eat anything freshly caught. I gave up hunting when I realized that wild animals taste like what they eat, ie they are gamey.

Rich ... great idea to share with your kids. I know my son still has his up in his room. Might be a good idea to give to spouses and/or SOs (significant others), too!

Regards to killing, what about the mineral & plant world ... I hold that they're alive, too.. (now we're getting deep)... Image

They are! That's why I don't subscribe to the vegans' sense of superiority. When we die, they get a chance at us too. Image
