Happy New Year! It is hard to believe that it is already 2009. However, as you celebrate the New Year, whether it is by relaxing, cleaning or organizing your life, think about either writing or updating your ethical will.
Writing your spiritual ethical will is something that everyone needs to do. While it sounds like a lot of work, an ethical will doesn’t have to be complicated. It can, instead, be a very simple document that is no more complicated to write than a simple letter. To write an ethical letter all you have to do is express your true feelings to someone that you love. You can address this letter to one person or to a group of people.
If you have already written your spiritual ethical will then today is a good day to revise your ethical will. To start with you will want to read through your last draft. This can be a very cathartic experience. As you read through your last draft take notes about things that you want to change. For example, you may have someone new in your life or you may have revised your life’s philosophy. When you revise your ethical will make sure you date the revisions. This will provide you with a time line of your changes and help you to identify the most recent version of your ethical will.
