What should we stand for?
We should stand for the expressions of our true self that we are well-suited to bring into the world. If we are artists, then we can stand for making the world a more beautiful place. If our life is centered around family and friends, then we can uphold the principle of love in all things that we do. If we are more intellectually inclined, we can aim to reveal the deeper understanding and wisdom in our life. If we have a great capacity for helping others, we can strive to be of compassionate service to those around us. These are all good basic things to stand for, and there are times when you can uphold all of them at the same time. What is important is not to be driven to stand for something by some ideal or creed, but rather to let the natural flow of attention from your higher self meet the needs to the time and situation you are in so that it produces an evolutionary outcome for everyone involved.
