Your philosophy of life is your guide for living. It always must include a set of values to live by, and a sense of which are more important than others.
Value relates to the intrinsic worth of something. And since everything has some intrinsic worth because of its soul, everything has value. But our set of values will be relative to the importance we give to something – that is, what it is worth to us.
Whatever we find of value is worth spending time and energy on. In fact, if we value something it demands our time and energy. Some things that we value conflict with other things that we value. For example, we might value our job which demands a lot of time and attention, and we also value our family which also demands a lot of time and attention.

You are goodness and mercy and compassion and understanding. You are peace and joy and light. You are forgiveness and patience, strength and courage, a helper in time of need, a comforter in time of sorrow, a healer in time of injury, a teacher in times of confusion.
