- To do right is to do that which is admirable (to me). That which I find admirable is sharing abundant life with others. Thus, being life-giving is right in my eyes.
- To do wrong is to do that which is despicable (to me). That which I find despicable is taking life from others or barring others from abundant life. Thus, being death-dealing is wrong in my eyes.
- Apart from these two things, nothing else matters (i.e. is of significance to me). Or, rather, it is only in the context of these two things, that anything matters (i.e. is of significance to me). Any belief, any value, any moral, any law, any story or text, any ideology, any construction of meaning or of identity–none of these things have any intrinsic significance (in my eyes). They are only significant as far as they are life-giving or death-dealing and their significance carries no farther than that (but it does carry that far).
- Here, what is of foremost importance (to me), are one’s actions. Again: beliefs, values, constructions of meaning–these are only significant to the extent they they impact one’s actions in relation to that which is life-giving or death-dealing. Beliefs, values, and constructions of meaning, do not matter (to me) in and of themselves. Their sole significance (to me) is the way in which they influence what we do.
