One's Ideals are meaningless unless they are incorporated into our daily lives.
It is easy to be a kind and loving person when surrounded by those who give love and kindness to you. The test of application is, what are we like when we are treated unkindly, how do we respond?
I choose to believe that there is a Higher Power of ultimate good in the Universe. Some people choose to call that Higher Power, God. I choose not to speak specifically about any religion while I am online, but what I believe does determine how I act.
I think that there is an ultimate plan for every individual in the Universe, and that ultimate justice exists for us all. Justice may not appear immediate in our timeframe, but in the scale of eternity, judgment comes. Judgment, however, is not up to me as an individual. My own personal role-models are people like Gandhi and Mother Teresa who choose to overcome evil with goodness.
I believe that my own personal task in life is to work toward achieving as pleasant a life as is possible for myself, while balancing that goal with the goal of doing my best to behave in a kind and loving way toward others ... despite the personal behavior choices that those others make.
Sometimes I'm successful at this, and sometimes not so much.
