God is that which we wish to see in ourselve's. As we came into consciousness, we saw how our actions affected others and the effect was a wish for something greater, which would keep us on the straight and narrow.
Good is label affixed to moral rightness. We choose to do good because it in turn, makes us feel good about ourselve's.
Evil is a label affixed to the absence of moral awareness or action. We choose to do evil for any number of reasons, one being selfish desires, another being envy.
It is hard to put this into words that others will understand. I hope that it works for somebody.
What is ethical to one is immoral to another. I have my ethics and I have a moral code by which I live my life. My ethics are what I share with others, my morals are a personal thing and can be explained through ethics.
I define God as the main character in the finest work of creation ever concieved. I define good as doing selfless things to benefit those you love, and showing kindness to those that you don't particularly know as and when opportunity presents itself to do so. Evil is the opposite, doing things to hurt people, for the sake of hurting people. This is just a short summary of my outlook, I need to write a Hub about this!
Ideas may or may not be premeditated. I am going to the kitchen - premediated. Ideas are always floating into my mind and if I have never thought of them before they could be premeditated by some source or which I am not aware, or they may just come into being of their own volition. Either way - not premeditated.
If I can I will explain what I believe in simple terms. Life has choices and we choose to do or not do. We act on our thoughts or we do not. Our desires are derived from thought and we either act on our desire or we do not. This the simplest way I can say it and I do think that this is right for me. You do not have to agree with it, it just is and is a truth that many seem to fail to see.
This is for the Christians. The devil did not make me do evil, it was a personal and selfish choice. God did not make me do good, it was a personal and sefless choice. This is to say that I do things by choice and that no God or devil has anything to do with the reallity of it.
I have been many things, though I think that what religion I am in is not important. I have chosen a higher spiritual path and it has nothing to do with the world of man. It is a path of enlightenment, but not a path of religious enlightenment. I see God as it truly is and to me it is not as important as how I carry myself.
