Diligence



Diligence is steadfast application, assiduousness and industry—the virtue of hard work. It is one of the seven heavenly virtues.

Diligent behavior is indicative of a work ethic — a belief that work is good in itself.

Diligence in Buddhism

The last words of the Buddha was "Strive on with diligence". Diligence is an integral part of all Buddhist teaching, and is considered the fourth of the pāramitā. In Mahayana tradition diligence is the third pāramitā and the first which is said to lead to liberation. The practice of diligence will bring an increase of qualities.

Alexithymia - emotional blindness - is a personal trait which affects roughly 10% of the population.

Alexithymia describes the difficulty of people to perceive and describe emotions of others and themselves. Most persons concerned are not aware about this deficit and usually they are just recognizing it in contact with others, especially close friends, within their family or their partner.
