2. I will not trust anybody else blindly. I need to check on everybody else's intentions before I trust them: They need to prove their intentions, show that what they suggest is good, correct, and useful, etc. I know that everybody except God can be sometimes open to darkness. I don't grant anybody other than God absolute power over you. I don't have false gods.
3. If I hurt someone in the slightest way, then I will regret it as soon as possible, and I will start repairing the damage immediately. At the time of doing harm, I am open to darkness. I will make such moments as short as possible.
4. I will never fail to act against, speak against, or at least feel against any injustice (wrong done or duty missed) and also against all those who are being unjust, even if they are my elders or loved ones. When I am aware of injustice, then I am open to darkness until I take a stand. I will stay informed and take a stand. It won't shield me to stick my head in the sand, or to plug my ears, or to be lazy at finding out what is happening to others, and to me! I will not be partisan.
There are priorities and exceptions for 3 and 4. For example: If I choose the lesser harm of two choices (when there is no third choice), then I am still shielded from darkness.
5. I will avoid arrogance, ego and even simple pride. I know that all that is the very character of darkness, and therefore, it invites darkness.
6. I will avoid denial, defensiveness, and dishonesty. I know that all that is also the very character of darkness, and therefore, it invites darkness. I will admit everything to myself.
Note: (6) is a consequence of (5).
7. I will never feel the least discomfort with anything God says or does, because it is all Light, and if I am not comfortable with any aspect of Light, then I will automatically be comfortable with darkness. I will accept what has happened and what must happen. I know that my wrong attitude can open me to darkness. Instead of doubting what God says or does, I will doubt my own understanding of it and seek clarification through prayer and contemplation.
8. I will not feel safe from the consequences of harmful things that I think, do, or say. I will hope for forgiveness and the best outcome (Heaven), but I will remain conscious of the worst possible consequence of my wrong actions (Purgatory or Hell). I will not have the least rejecting attitude toward the law of reward and punishment. I know that my wrong attitude on this law can open me to darkness.9. I give all credit for positive AND negative things to God alone. I never doubt for a moment that God has complete control over everything at all times. I know that God is the one who lets all things happen, positive or negative. I know that the end effect of God's work is always positive.
I will never think that darkness has any real power, because that thinking would open me to darkness. I will never forget that even darkness cannot do anything without the permission of God.
I will never attribute events, success or failure to people's efforts or mine, or the lack thereof.
I know that even my own will and my own efforts do not happen except as God wishes them to happen. I know that from God's point of view, I have no free will. I know that no one and nothing really escapes God's will. I also know that from my point of view, I have free will, and I am accountable before God. I don't question how God does that.
