The Loss of Morals and Ethics

The loss of morals and ethics is said to render a person spiritually dead. Certain conditions of the mind have been called diseases of the spirit. What a person fears in relation to his moral, ethical or spiritual self depends on two sets of values. The value system of the individual determines his moral values. The collective values of the family, corporation, culture, or society determine the rules of ethics that govern the individual members. Morals and ethics change over time, and, in some cases, overnight. When one listens to his heart and lives his life inspired from within, the voices on the outside and the fear associated with conforming to societal morals and ethics become quiet. In wisdom, it is better to have the whole world against you than to have you own soul against you.
