We need a Compass… Or more specifically, a Moral Compass!

When We Meet Real Tragedy In Life, We Can React In Two Ways

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,
Tamara

  1. I’ve thought for a while now that there would be no need for laws if people had a moral compass. Laws are just the forced version of right thinking, and as such they rarely entirely work since they don’t have moral underpinning. What a wonderful world it would be if souls caught the Spirit of goodness.

    I always enjoy your writing. This one was especially good. I’m surprised you don’t have more readers. Just a thought: it might be because the posts are quite long. I find myself scanning them when I don’t have a lot of time. You might want to try breaking them up and making them shorter. This one was almost the perfect length. 😉

    1. Thanks so much for your honest feedback! I appreciate it! I’m so happy you enjoy my articles!

      This is my brand new website and 99% of my followers from my old site haven’t yet migrated over! The articles I’m posting now have appeared in previous years on my old site, and now I’m updating or even changing the titles as I move things from one site to another! I’m sure I’ll get discovered as time goes on!

      Laws are still necessary to hold many accountable as even old souls still forget their moral compass at times of temptation! It would be nice if everyone were motivated by internal thinking and the ability to do the right thing, wouldn’t it?!

      Thanks so much!

      1. I know. I started a new site after a years absence. It does take a while to build again.

        Not to bring up nationality, but I wish there were more level-headed voices like yours coming from native-americans. I sincerely hope I got that right. I like the insight you bring to the table. I like your perspective.

        The best!

      2. 😊 thanks! I’m not Native American but my spiritual life was deeply changed when I left the second evangelical church I was in and then met my second husband who was a part Native.

        Minor had travelled for two years with his spiritual brother Steve Red Buffalo all around North and South Dakota while Steve held Inipi (sweat lodge) ceremonies. Minor had the dream that he was to become a Pipe Carrier and so they travelled to Red Rock to get the stone to make his Pipe.

        After that time Steve gave Minor permission to pour water (lead) the ceremonies on his own. I met Minor during the time when he was pouring water up in Quebec and I then participated in the ceremonies.

        Once we became a couple I became his physical and spiritual helper. Later when we moved down to Tucson, we participated in ceremonies at an existing lodge and it was my great honor to teach the young Native women how to prepare for ceremonies they had been separated from for years!

        Even though Minor and I have been divorced for a few years, what I learned and experienced has forever changed my outlook.

        During that time I was approached by 4 psychics, at different times and locations, who gave me almost identical messages: that I had agreed to all my troubles before coming into this life!

        Since receiving those messages I’ve spent many hours learning about how this may fit into my previous spiritual knowledge of God and Jesus, as well as the Native American teachings I learned.

        I try to write authenticity from what I’ve learned and experienced. I realize that my viewpoint tends to be different and by having accepted “what is” in the world means I tend to make connections on a wider scale and don’t hold to any one church or set of religious beliefs.

        My life has also been marked by my father and his sister having been taken by German soldiers from their parents house in the Ukraine when they were a teens and placed in forced labor camps in Austria, as well as my Jewish Grandmother’s escape from Germany with my blond-haired half German mother soon after Krystal-Nacht. (Because of what she endured she gave up practicing her beliefs and didn’t speak of them, so unfortunately I never learned that part of my heritage from her.)

        What they endured for years formed my deep beliefs that no person should ever hurt another in cruel ways, and has affected my sensitivities to all the racial divides we see today.

        Who I am is a deep mixture of my heritage and my experiences!

      3. Sorry, I imagined Kulish to be Native American, perhaps it is through your married name?

        Same here. Left churches altogether and am never going back. Not that I am no longer spiritual. I am. Just no longer religious.

      4. I understand! Kulish is my maiden name and it’s Ukrainian! I can understand the confusion!

        Here I thought that you had identified the Native American aspect through how I write, which is usually what other people will assume! 😆

      5. I also lived in Montreal where speaking French was expected, so I’m sure that even though English is my mother tongue, I’ve had many influences in how I express myself! My mother also drilled me in the British mode of writing, so there’s another influence! 😜
