The artist writes, "virtues have been recognized through the ages as catalysts for improving life. This is because applying one virtue prepares the terrain for the next one to grow and blossom, and this new one in turn generates the next in an ascending virtuous spiral. COMPASSION is considered the best way to enter this mighty current of good will. It is the golden door because Compassion generates Empathy and allows us to see the world from someone else’s point of view. This new perspective opens a new aspect of reality and brings us closer to the Truth. TRUTH creates the grounds for Justice. JUSTICE provides the terrain for Peace. PEACE allows people to relax, heal and brings Hope. HOPE invites people to make plans, imagine and use their Creativity. CREATIVITY brings improvements, the arts, more beauty and Love. LOVE lets us escape our self centered prison and lets us experience more Compassion. COMPASSION experienced again has a higher quality, this is because we have experienced and lived more as we completed one journey through the ascending spiral of virtuosity that is the basis of human development. These insights were developed after spending a week with his Holiness the Dalai Lama at his home in India in 1999. It took several years to concentrate his teachings into these seven words and I engraved them in a bracelet so they can be a handy reminder."
