CHAPTER 10

Getting Along With Others

 Continues…..

Developing a Harmonious Personality

Be genuinely amiable when you are with others. Never be a “sourpuss.” You don’t have to laugh boisterously, like a hyena, but don’t wear a long face either. Just be smiling, congenial, and kind. Smiling on the outside when you are angry or resentful inside, however, is hypocrisy. If you want to be likeable, be sincere. Sincerity is a soul quality that God has given to every human being, but not all express it. Above all, be humble. Though you may have admirable inner strength, don’t overwhelm others with your strong nature. Be calm and considerate of them. This is the way to develop likeable magnetism.

Don’t try to get along with others by adopting artificial mannerisms. Just be loving and ever ready to be helpful and saturate yourself with divine communion—-then you will find yourself getting along with everyone in your environment.
