The Teachings of Ethical Culture

This is how I operationalize the teachings of Ethical Culture, a nontheistic and humanistic philosophy originally developed by Felix Adler, into an actual praxis and way of life. You will notice many parallels with secular and naturalistic interpretations of Buddhism. The interdependent web of all existence, or the Omniverse or the totality of all that is, is that which is worthy of our reverence and highest value.

About Me:
I am a humanist. Humanism is a philosophy of life inspired by humanity and guided by reason. It provides the basis for a fulfilling and ethical life without religion. Humanists make sense of the world using reason, experience and shared human values. Humanists see no convincing evidence for gods, the supernatural, or life after death. Humanists believe that moral values are properly founded on human empathy and scientific understanding. Humanists believe we must live this life on the basis that it is the only life we'll have -- that, therefore, we must make the most of it for ourselves, each other, and our world. Humanist philosophies have arisen separately in many different cultures over many thousands of years. Whether or not they use the term humanism, tens of millions of Americans and hundreds of millions of people around the world agree with the humanist philosophy of living a happy and productive life based on reason and compassion. I have an interest in humanistic and naturalistic way of being, recognizing our interdependence with other living beings, acting ethically towards others, and connecting to the larger Universe (aka "spirituality").
