Do not talk with those who do not wish to listen.
Do not move with those in whom you have no faith.
Do not eat with those who do not have any respect for the kind of food you enjoy.
Do not live with those who have no understanding of you.
Do not advise anyone who will not take your advice.
Do not mix with those who have no respect for your life.
Do not love those who will not accept you as their lover or beloved.
Do not meditate that which will not bring good to the present.
Do not think of those who will bring fear and worries to your life.
Do not follow those who have no love for you.
Do not sleep with one who is not completely one with your own being.
Do not work at anything that brings imperfection and lack of success.
