Living a moral life is synonymous with spirituality. So, in a broad sense, when I talk about morality, I am defining spirituality. Spirituality has everything to do with morality.
Morality is everything that spirituality is. Being moral allows us to live honestly and purely in a world that doesn’t always take notice. Keeping morality close to us in the hub of everyday life, serves to remind us that morality and spirituality can pave the way for us to be happy, content and at peace.
Being moral and spiritual helps us to stay grounded in a world that is less than perfect, morally and spiritually. It is something we should all practice. Morality and spirituality, if continually practiced, will make us better people.
As long as we know right from wrong and have a conscience, we will follow a moral compass. Without basic rules surrounding morality, there will always be chaos in our homes and in our lives.
We’re not all instinctively moral, but we can choose to be moral. It is all a question of how we choose to relate and behave towards other people and in society. We must want to care about others and ourselves. We must want to have empathy, compassion and tolerance. We must want to follow and incorporate moral tolerance.
We need to strive to understand how our conscience plays its part in our moral compass. If the conscience alerts us to something that it knows is wrong, we can and should choose to change our behaviour. It is our conscience that challenges us to change how we see other people and how moral we will be.
