Five points of Objective Morality

The five points of objective morality are like the five fingers of a hand for handling situations:

1. Number one means keeping the three brains of the body serviceable. 

2. Number two is constantly to be pondering the meaning and aim of existence - not necessarily with any hope of solution. Man exists to be the mind of God and as mind ultimately to understand the meaning and aim of existence. Preoccupation with this problem makes all other problems relatively easy.

3. Number three is the obligation to make Being-effort: the effort of doing. This is not necessarily a visible activity, or concrete work, but it is effort. Obligation of this kind is to keep oneself exercising - effort-making.

4. Number four is to cooperate with others who aim at the same objective reason.
5. Number five is duty - to ease the burden of His Endlessness. Unless you make effort, it must be made for you. Now the burden is just upon His Endlessness.
