There is a Source of life, love and truth… we are not the source; but rather intended to be instruments for life, and vessels for love entering the process.
All virtue is sourced in love.
We – given how we work, how culture works* – can see that an existence organized culture would quite naturally have value for work ethic… value to the point of seeing work ethic as a virtue. However, reflecting on our experience, we can readily see that work ethic, in the absence of our working ethically, inevitably… that is, ultimately becomes non-virtuous.
* The perspective we hold, where we start our thinking from, determines the path we take, what we move towards, what we move away from… and ultimately what we create; bring into existence.
Culture works to embed within our ways of being and doing particular value based patterns.
