Ethics – Table of Contents and Introduction

Ethics is the practice of intuition concerning Truth.

Therefore, ethics itself is the Path to Truth, the Path towards inner recognition of the essence of our Being, of our Universe. No other path is needed than this. Ethics is the continuous choice we make between acting according to our divine self and our personal self.

No books are needed to practice ethics, no literacy, no system of higher education. By means of our ethical intuition, the gods have given us all we need. The practice of ethics is Raja Yoga – the Royal Path towards Union with the Divine.

Within oneself one knows what I right and ‘wrong.’ What we need is the never fading courage to choose the first and abandon the last.

If we only would apply the above, we would all be yogi’s, theosophists, noble humans with deep understanding. It is so simply said, yet so difficult to accomplish. It demands life-long and lifetimes of training, and of failing and standing up, trying again. Yet it is the only true Path.

In our weakness we have developed thousands of systems of meditation, yoga and study – all helpful to an extend – and we have designed religions and rules. Rules are helpful – they give us a standard for our mind and for how we should behave in society. Without these, the society would even be a greater chaos and festival of joy, suffering and gloom than it already is. It is good that there are rules. And is good that there are those who challenge the rules. But ultimately the rules are only crutches we have to leave behind. At some period in our development these crutches become our obstacles. Ultimately there are no rules. We have to go beyond rules, and follow our stainless intuition. This intuition is our innate and eternal heritage.

Every genuine religion and spiritual philosophy, and every real science has ethics as its core. It is our dharma, our support, our task, our duty, our way to the divine.  Therefore high thinking has always been focused around ethics – and this is true for the highest and purest schools of thought as well as the intercourse with our children in our household family.

Deviation from the purest intuition on either side ‘good’ or ‘bad’ leads to the natural activity the conscious, wisdom-guided spiritual force in the universe known as karma, which is then either experienced as pleasant or unpleasant by the human personality – and at the heart of both pleasant and unpleasant experience lies the wisdom of universal ethics or ‘the habit energy of the divine,’ which can be recognized by one’s true and pure intuition.


In this section of the website we collect some examples of the ethics as reflected in various thought systems and social thinking. Of whatever system it derived, ethics will be recognized by your own inner being, and is a support to frame your mind.

In every human writing – which by nature is not yet divine – we may also find fallacies, statements towards which your inner pure feeling resists. Don’t think evil about the writer or speaker, but follow your own intuition.
