Writing a spiritual ethical will can be done any time of the year. However, the holiday season is one of the best times to tackle this task. This is because the last couple of months of the year you are already thinking about your past, about your traditions and about fond family and personal memories. Use these things as inspiration for your ethical will.
There are a lot of ways that you can approach your ethical will. The first way is to simply sit down with a pad of paper and a pencil and jot down memories. This option is what is called freestyling or journaling. You can write for as long as you want or you can set a timer so that you write for at least five, ten, fifteen or twenty minutes.
After you have finished with your writing session you will need to go back through what you have written and determine what you want to keep and what you want to get rid of. Then you will need to organize your ideas in some logical manner, such as chronologically. This will help the readers of your ethical will make sense out of the stories that you are telling.
The final draft of your spiritual ethical will is simply the last draft of your document. For most people, there will be no official final draft, as revisions of the ethical will will occur throughout their life. This is because as you mature your life changes and so does your worldview. The revisions process allows your ethical will to evolve with your spirit.
