Ethics Virtues Meditation and Spiritual Growth


An ethical person does what is good for the situation. Good ethics produce good results. An unethical person may have temporary personal gain, but at the expense of others, and will not grow much spiritually.

Ethics underlie virtues. It does no good to practice virtues if you are not ethical. To progress towards self-realization requires an ethical basis, built upon with virtuous living, and the crowning glory of deep meditation.

We learn ethics, good from bad, and how to get along harmoniously, in various ways, including holy scriptures, rules of behavior at school, work, and society. Remember the 'golden rule' of doing unto others as you wish done to you.

On top of maintaining ethics, practicing the virtues gives us an edge in our spiritual quest. For example, when we share with someone, we feel good during the act of giving, right in that moment. A virtuous person is welcome and emulated in society.

Progress on the spiritual path comes when an ethical and virtuous person sits in meditation. Innate harmony is revealed when the mind is free from the stress of ways to gain at the expense of others. And in that clear state the deeper levels of spiritual joy come to mind and emotion. Even the physical body reaps the reward, by feeling warm and energized in this elevated level of realization and consciousness.

Make every effort to live ethically and enjoy a fuller sense of unlimited spiritual connection with others, and the natural world, too. If you find yourself tempted to act unethically for personal gain, avoid places of temptation, or those who do not have ethical goals. Others influence us until we are strong in our own ethical behavior.

In summary, follow the three part plan of living ethically, practicing virtues, and meditating deeply. Then you'll reap the grand reward of enjoying your expansive spiritual nature in the midst of daily living. And, your life becomes a good example for others.
