Exploring your personal ethical foundation
Write down five values that are important to you.
Under each value write down what this might mean for you. Research what other people write about these values.
Start to engage in an inner dialogue around these values and your actions. How do your actions and your values connect?
Think of this as an on-going exploration, rather than a self examination. Explore how you feel about making mistakes and the value of mistakes.
Look at the roles you have in your life. Do some roles have certain ethical practices?
How do these roles and ethical practices overlap in your life?
Take time to reflect and write.
Share your ideas and reflections with others.

Crafting connects us, the action of moving out of your mind and the focus of the stitch, the weave, the stroke of a paintbrush or pen.

Knowledge without wisdom is nothing, wisdom without love is nothing.
The paradox of knowledge is that it leads you to the unknown. Knowledge is a relationship, so welcome the relationship you have with knowledge. When you pursue knowledge, it is sometimes elusive and other times knowledge can enter with a painful edge of truth. We may find that what we have pursued we then resist.
Some knowledge has a dominant edge to it, or it comes from a place of manipulation. Knowledge might be drip fed. Keep an eye out for that, for then knowledge becomes power.
When you read something profound, sit with it.
When we sit with what we read, we allow it to resonate with the inner light.
When it resonates with this, then we absorb it.
Knowledge and truth and therefore wisdom changes you, and therefore you can only move forward into unknown territory.

As I walk through my daily life I observe different aspects of our interaction with knowledge: As a reservoir of facts assisting us to make sense of our daily world As a mystery to be solved keeping us curious and interested in the journey As a tool to...read more
Anyone who would seek to know anything on this spiritual path, will eventually come across the maxim ‘know thyself’. Of all the knowledge we seek, none is greater, more profound, or more deeply life-changing than self-knowledge. And yet, equally, those who seek to...read more
