I am a retired dog groomer with a dog grooming shop at my home which I operate as a hobby in the small community of Eagle Creek. As an avid outdoors enthusiast, I am filling my retirement days with my greatest joys: art, photography, kayaking, fishing, dog grooming and gardening. My husband and I have finally developed the ever important skill of dropping everything and going fishing. Fishing is a family affair often embarked upon with grandchildren and dogs in tow.
When I first read the Dalai Lama’s book “Beyond Religion” I was both impressed and inspired with his vision of a world brought together by a code of secular ethics. He has opened the door for people of all faiths and non-faiths to enter on level ground. To my mind the key to world peace is indeed secular ethics. I was myself inspired by the possibilities of self improvement and inner peace that learning and developing secular ethics in my own life can bring. Secular ethics set aside religious, political, discrimination, and preconceived thought processes which bias our perception of humanity. I come with baggage….we all do…I can now set my baggage aside and know that I am headed in an honest and ethical direction which will do right by the world.
I strongly believe that if our current government and future governments, in fact if all governments worldwide were to adapt to this code of secular ethics there would be vast improvements made to humanity and the environment in general. Decisions which affect all facets of life would be better made with this code of secular ethics held strongly in mind.
