It's a crazy world these days, I think everyone would agree. There is no moral compass of any kind. Choices are personal and individual.
At one time society, religion, offered guidelines for right living, defined moral living. No longer. There is something about being well fed for long enough to forget God and start to believe that we as humans create the laws of the universe, create morality.
Of course this is not the case. Our human egos can send us barreling down into deep dark holes.
Even though most people may be headed in one direction, if our intuition says otherwise, it is good to listen. Even though we might think we are the rulers of the world, we are not; universal truth rules.That means the centuries-old principles still apply: live integrity, don't hurt others, have pure thoughts, don't lie, steal, cheat; do not exact revenge; don't let anger get out of control, do not engage in violence, be kind, giving, forgiving, considerate, thoughtful, caring . . . . Do the right thing, even if it's hard to do. Interestingly enough, this is not so much about the other person as it is about you. In doing these right things, you will flourish, will remain healthy, whole in mind and body.
The tricky part is to choose integrity while all around you people are choosing otherwise. That's where the power of spirit comes in. You simply have to choose to be strong in spirit, be a spiritual warrior, infallible in the face of extreme fallibility.
This is not an easy choice, but it's really the only one we have to move through this phase successfully.
Commit today to be strong in the power of your spirit, truth, light, God.
