We often consider our morals and values to be fairly synonymous and deeply rooted in our spiritual faith. This comes from a modern understanding of spirituality in which a divine entity or force dictates what is universally important, and things outside of that list that we feel are important are just mundane human priorities.
I reject that notion. I reject it partially because I reject the existence of a deity or supernatural force directing the workings of the universe, especially one which cares about the choices I make in life. I also reject it because morals and values are, by their very nature, focused on shaping our actions in this life, in the present reality. Morals and values are not about pleasing a higher power, they are about expressing our spiritual truths through our interactions with others.
So, if I were to list my own personal 10 commandments, what would be on that list?
