A Man’s Duty in Life

by Michael Colantoni

A Man’s Duty in Life

1.        Be RESPONSIBLE for himself.

2.        Carry out his REAL and NECESSARY obligations in this world.

3.        Search for realisation of the TRUTH of existence.

1. He must support himself, assume total and sole responsibility for his behaviour and well-being, and pursue his own self-development with determination, cheer and introspection. He must hold no-one else responsible for the outcomes in his life. He must always look for the cause within his own consciousness. He must never give up.

2. He must be careful and selective about the obligations he takes on. He must not avoid those that are his but he must not assume those that are not. He alone must determine what are his responsibilities, without deference to others who would convince him or condition him against his own judgement. He must challenge all preconceptions, accept his own true conclusions and act with total integrity. He should minimise unnecessary obligations that would distract him from or prevent the proper pursuit of his correct purpose. This must be enforced with charity.

3. Discovery and realisation of the TRUTH of existence is his one correct purpose. This requires knowledge, contemplation and realisation of his true IDENTITY and his relation to REALITY. Pursuit of this truth is his one REAL obligation.

A life lived in honest dedication to these principles is a success.
