Right Action is one of the Three Rs of Alignment, (the others being Right Environment and Right Action) that, when taken together, provide the foundations of Healing and Connection. Taken together, right thought, action, and environment constitute the LPs Alignment Rule Set

Right action is action aligned with Highest Self. This includes

Ahimsa अहिंसा) - non violence,
asteya अस्तेय - non-stealing,
brahmacarya ब्रह्मचार्य - appropriate use of vital energies
aparigraha अपरिग्रह - non-possessiveness
sauca शौचा - purity, cleanliness
IsvarapranidhAna इस्वरप्रनिधन - devotion, alignment with "higher force" (i.e. Self)

The Christian Ten Commandments can be seen as a statement of right action. Do not steal, do not kill (harm), do not covet (be possessive), etc.

A Zoroastrian avowal of faith indicates the significance of "well-thought thought," "well-spoken word," and "well-performed act." [1]

Man of the statements made by Handsome Lake in his Seneca teachings, in particular The Great Message, are statements of right action, right thought, and right environment.[2]

Right action can be determined theoretically, i.e. by considering the nature of Consciousness as a loving, compassionate, connected, responsible, blissful and powerful expression of divinity, or it can be determined intuitively, by responding to triggering emotions (Sharp, GA). As regards the theoretical determination of right action, right action is action that allows for the full aligned expression of the love, compassion, and bliss of Consciousness through the physical unit.

Because of the uncompromising nature of higher consciousness, full Connection of the physical unit does not occur in a physical unit that does not engage in right action.
