Daily Teaching for Saturday, July 28th

There are essentially two approaches to moral behavior. One is to accept a list of rules that someone else wrote and attempt to follow the rules because we have decided it’s the right thing to do. The alternative, and for me more effective, is to transform ourselves through spiritual practice which then creates the spirit of love and compassion within us that leads to appropriate behavior even in the absence of lists of rules.
