Ethics and Meditation (10% Happier Self Care Journey) 4/8/20


Ethics definition -


1. moral principles that govern a person's behavior or the conducting of an activity.


2. the branch of knowledge that deals with moral principles.


- At its simplest, ethics is a system of moral principles. ... Ethics  is concerned with what is good for individuals and society and is also  described as moral philosophy. The term is derived from the Greek word  ethos which can mean custom, habit, character or disposition.


-  Meditation allows us to hone in on our actions in an effort to be aware  of beneficial and non-beneficial behaviors and ways of thinking. Things  like mindfulness, equanimity, compassion, kindness etc. helps us to move  gradually toward more and more positive ethics over time. Various  thoughts and urges arise and meditation helps us to make more conscious  decisions based on assessing short and long term actions.


- The  Bliss of Blamelessness - The ability to assess our mistakes in a healthy  way while not dwelling or ruminating negatively in a way that becomes  more harmful than helpful to us.


The Five Precepts of Buddhism


I undertake to observe the rule:


1. to abstain from taking life


2. to abstain from taking what is not given


3. to abstain from sensuous misconduct


4. to abstain from false speech


5. to abstain from intoxicants as tending to cloud the mind


- These are just foundational general guidelines and aren't hard and fast rules.
