→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: A QUESTION ABOUT VIRTUE
vertical line Posted on Jan.04.2008 @ 05:43AM EDT by chontri

What is your virtue?  How would you show it with people around you?

P.S.:
Don't say, "I don't know what virtue is," or "I don't have virtue," or "I don't have to show it with any people," and the like...

With attention and care, one can grow a plant for flowers or fruits.  This may take a period of time and have some flowers or leaves.

Without attention and care, one just let grasses grow. They will grow very fast and spread over wherever they can.

Virtue

1 a. to a standard of right.  b : a particular moral excellence

2 plural   : an order of angels —  see CELESTIAL HIERARCHY

3 : a beneficial quality or power of a thing

4 : manly strength or courage : VALOR

5 : a commendable quality or trait : MERIT

6 : a capacity to act : POTENCY

7 : chastity especially in a woman

 

This is a very hard question. To be Virtuous one must be attached to ones ego.

Maybe this: I observe the five precepts they are virtuous, not because I am virtuous. MU

Good or bad, he is his thought speech & behaviour... no more no less... they are what he is to himself & his surroundings...

However, if there is any possibly opportunity at all, I will always like or wish to pay more attention & care to my intention mindfully...

So long as I am mindfully & comfortably enough about ownself daily proper living life with similar atention & care or concern to others or the surroundings... why should I bother to show  or please anyone at all?

it shows up without being shown
