In every religion, there is a set of beliefs, simplicity, chastity, and service. In some religions, we have a moral obligation or duty to serve whereas in some religions things are different. It is important to understand that no one religion is the same it may be similar in certain aspects such as prayer, meditation, and fasting. But the Holy Scriptures and order of worship are different in each denomination. Simplicity is what we find in stillness, quietness; absence of noise or disturbances.

I did not just practice chastity for three weeks, this is something that I try to work on daily. Over the course of my spiritual discipline practice, I tried to learn more about other religions that way when I meet someone I will not do, or say anything that will offend them because I have respect for them as a person and their religious beliefs.

We know the difference between right and wrong. It is not right to sit back and let someone go without a meal if you have money to spare or go without having anything to cloth themselves in when you have several clothes and you would not be missing what you are giving away. I believe that if someone needs food, clothes or just need some encouragement in regards to the things that they are going through in life we should try to be there for that person. I believe that I was successful with this discipline.
