Morality (and immorality) is seeing in other people what you think is wrong in you. And attempting to put it right in them.

It doesn’t work. Because you are dealing with it where it isn’t.

And, more to the point, there is nothing wrong with you.

There are consequences to your actions, which may well be painful for you. And, for sure, things aren’t always as you would prefer them to be.

But there is nothing wrong with you. Nothing. Nada. Nilch. Nothing.

The only reason we have bought into this whole concept of “wrong”, is that, without it, we wouldn’t know what “right” is. And we need to know what “right” is. Yes, we really need to know what right is. So we have some idea of what’s going on. So we have some compass to guide our actions.

But what if the truth is that we have no idea what’s going on? More so, what if the compass is pointing in completely the wrong direction?

Given the state of humanity, I would suggest that the compass, that most people have been using to guide their actions, hasn’t exactly been pointing in right direction, has it now?

But that is all relative. Because, as I say, there is no “right”, and, hence, there is no “wrong”. And, hence, there is nothing wrong with you. Fact.

If you are struggling with this idea, then look out into the world and tell me where ‘wrong’ is exactly. I would like a precise location for it, if you don’t mind …

And don’t point to your spouse, okay?

The moment you accept that there is nothing wrong, that everything is okay, is the moment that you are completely open to love.


Never mind whether something is ‘moral’ or ‘immoral’, just do what works.
