      Truthfulness, equality, self-control, absence of envious emulation, forgiveness, modesty, endurance, absence of jealousy, charity, thoughtfulness, disinterested philanthropy,
      self-possession, and unceasing and compassionate harmlessness are all realized automatically through meditation once enlightenment is obtained.  Guidance is received for the specific ego propensities unique to the individual.  Before enlightenment one must also strive for these truths and here is very important to choose ones friends carefully, for they can guide you. Even with enlightenment, though, it is difficult to proceed because the ego so much wants to keep everything as it is, but one must follow the light to evolve into a better person. Do not fail to follow that.

      It is often my feeling that the hardest meditation
      technique is to refrain from demonstrating negativity
      in words or actions. But perhaps just as hard is to
      always be truthful. Here Swami Sivananda shares his
      thoughts on truth. I think it is well worth
      honestly, truthfully analyzing oneself to see
      how our life flows with truth.

      "God is truth. He can be realized by speaking
      truth and observing truth in thought, word
      and deed. Truthfulness, equality, self-control,
      absence of envious emulation, forgiveness,
      modesty, endurance, absence of jealousy, charity,
      thoughtfulness, disinterested philanthropy,
      self-possession, and unceasing and compassionate
      harmlessness, are the thirteen forms of truth."
      Swami Sivananda
