Sovereignty is the spiritual discipline of not letting the ego and its moods distract you with doom and gloom.

Acceptance: life is what it is, when you choose to rise above defeat, you can free your “self” to stay on the path toward endurance and thriving for the long haul.

Simplicity. There is great power in the simple life. The true-self finds joy in every moment without the need of the ego. The ego which is never satisfied drives a life of never-ending drama and expense. When you have one of those moments of great joy brought on by something super simple, you can have a transcended moment.  

Patience, another virtue of sovereignty, is the ability to take one step at a time and to finish what you start.
