A Moral Compass is more than doing the right thing because we’re afraid of getting caught if we break a rule or a law…
It’s something that happens on a much deeper, soul level.
When we feel compelled to do the right thing, it’s because we feel it’s what needs to be done, even when people aren’t watching us to make sure if we do or don’t do something!
Having a moral compass is more than just following the laws of the land or doing something because our religion or religious leader tells us we need to do it… It’s something that we feel deep inside of us.
A Moral Compass is a sign of spiritual and emotional maturity… We know what is the rightful thing to do and we do it, whether someone is watching or whether we will receive acknowledgement or approval.
We have only to watch some the politicians acting out against each other/against fellow citizens or to see when some religious leaders have their sordid sex lives and affairs paraded in public to know that a Moral Compass isn’t something that comes naturally to many, even those we expect to possess and use one!
Is it difficult to have a moral compass? Yup! You bet! Holding ourselves to a higher level of accountability when, frankly, it’s so much easier or pleasurable not to, is tough to do! It’s really hard to resist certain things! It’s really hard to kick ourselves in the butt to do something we’d rather not do!
It’s REALLY difficult! It’s especially difficult when things may be going badly in our lives, when we want to “take” more than we feel like giving!
Having a moral compass and keeping a moral compass can be very difficult to accomplish, but not impossible!
It all comes down to the infinite small choices we make throughout the day!
Bravo for keeping yours even when the veil of protection was removed and you began to see the world in all it’s permutations!
Please keep your voice of hope! There’s much good in this world, but we hear mostly about the bad because it’s sensationalistic! Good news is boring to report! It doesn’t get ratings or a flicker of interest from many people… But that doesn’t mean it’s not there!! It is!
I believe if we share the positive we can help people who have a moral compass find the encouragement to keep going… While those who have fallen down and are struggling to get up to be able to find the strength and support to change themselves and their lives!
Nothing is set in stone! Goodness can be lost… And goodness can be found!
Peace and thanks,
