The idea behind “moral uprightness”, as it exists through all the religions of the world, is to have a world inhabited by noble people, a world with a character of righteousness, devoid of the immoral.
Nobility is the state or quality of being noble, of possessing nobleness of mind, character, or spirit; being constantly in a state of exalted moral excellence.
Today, we share the world with different people, those with wrong perspectives to life, those with loose morals, those with vile inclination, many of corrupt mind, and still millions more who are naturally drawn to the ignoble and abominable.
Without all religious and moral codes, how should we live? This question gave rise to the debate between what is right and wrong. Irrespective of how one defines right and wrong, there are universal principles of human conduct that should regulate people who must live in nobility. These principles embody the Virtues, the cultivation of which sets men and women apart from the rest because of how beautiful they carry their lives. Cleanliness, godliness, orderliness, integrity, love, temperance, purity of thought and speech, contentment, high purpose, charity, and constant seeking towards the expansion of knowledge – these, amongst others, are marks of the character of people in the class of nobility.
You do not have to be born into a royal family to live like one. The fact of having your life from a Royal Source is enough evidence of your royalty.
Look through Creation and you will notice magnificence, beauty, and order to all that God made. Earth is an heaven of sort and we are citizens of a glorious paradise. Many have fallen from this consciousness of being noble souls and many yet have sunk deeper into the mire of the ignoble, but to all who aspire towards the noble life, to those who recognize their place in the community of nobility, the strength to live with virtuous characters is always supplied to them from the High.
Look yourself in the mirror and answer these questions: is God pleased with how you live your life? Is your life worth emulating? Will a child grow into a better adult if such child spends his days with you? Will a girl grow into a virtuous woman by following your lead? Are you in love with the you that is the true you?
Let us walk the noble way, in it is life, health and all goodness. Nobility owns the world, the ignoble is consigned into the trash of life.
