In addition to reading my Good Journal daily entries, read my whole blog, which is a blog about goodness and morals. It's good that I do everything that I mention in this blog: that I write about goodness, I do science and art, I learn about nature, I do landcare, I help people and communities, and I support moral sustainable cultural features that help to sustain and enrich communities, people, and nature. Being good includes learning more about hotlistic goodness, which is good and fair for oneself and everyone else. Being good includes doing both science and art to help to sustain and enrich both people and nature. Being good includes awareness, being aware of both nature and people. Being good includes taking care of the land, nature, and community landscape. Being good includes establishing and upholding moral cultures that take care of communities, people, and nature.

spiritual means absolutely good, infinite good, perfectly and completely good, all good and only good, no evil, no mistakes, no physical features, and no limitation. Spiritual includes the moral. Spiritual is eternal, unchanging, infinite. Spiritual is synonymous with immortal, immaterial, and metaphysical.

moral means nice and friendly to everyone in general, peaceful to everyone in general, ethical, responsible, unselfish, altruistic, and having good motives, motives to help communities and people and nature, motives to be sustainable, motives to do good that is good for as many people as possible, and motives to do good that is good especially in the long-run. Moral means using freedom to be free to do good and help people and nature, and not free to do bad and greedy things.

God is immortal, spiritual, moral, and only good.
creation is immortal, spiritual, moral, and only good. Creation is the spiritual universe. Creation includes man (males and females). Creation includes earth's spiritual identity.
earth is mortal, physical, a mix of good and bad.
a man is immortal, spiritual, moral, and only good.
a human is a mortal, is a mix of good and bad, and is a mix of moral and immoral.
The point of life, the meaning of life, the goal in life: is to increasingly find out for yourself more about goodness, spirituality, God, creation, man, and your spiritual identity.

I learned these defintions of spiritual, immortal, mortal, God, and man, from studying Christian Science. (Christian Science is not Scientology.) I suggest you read the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy. Learn more at www.christianscience.com

God, the one and only God of good, is spiritual, immortal, immaterial, metaphysical, infinite, eternal, unchanging, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. God is the Spiritual Being. God has no physical or humanoid body. God is all good, only good, and infinite good. God is the spiritual gravity of goodness that pulls people towards goodness, like physical gravity pulls masses together. But people have to listen to God to be pulled towards goodness. God is Supreme Good. God is not a mix of good and evil. Also, God is divine Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love. God is only spiritual. God creates only good and spiritual things. God's creation, including man, is spiritual. God is Love. God loves and protects His whole creation and every individual man. God is always guiding each individual man towards goodness.

Man. A man can be any gender. Each individual man is a spiritual being. We are only and totally spiriutal. We are only good. Man's origin is good and sinless. God created every man. A man is God's child. Each of us is truly a spiritual being, God's child, right now, and always. We have only but to discover what we truly are.

Human. A human can be any gender. Each individual human is a mortal and experiences a physical earth. Human consciousness is a mix of good and bad. Yet, each of us is truly only spiritual, only good. We have only but to discover our true spiritual identity. Each trial on earth urges us to forgo a little more of our mortal selves to realize a little more of our spiritual selfhood. We each need to work on the skill of listening to God, because God is always leading us to goodness, safety, health, supply, wisdom, love, peace, joy, freedoms to do good, and more benefits. God leads us to goodness, even on earth. The only way to goodness is by listening to God. Over the years, as we progressively become more moral and gain more spiritual understanding, we see more and more of our spiritual and immortal being. We see more of the spiritual earth too. The meaning of life is to advance our morals and spiritual consciousness, to better understand the truth, the spirituality, of God, creation, and man.

Caretaking includes maintaining and sustaining health, natural growth, morals, keeping an open and receptive awareness of good, preventing illness and evil, and guarding one's thoughts. Caretaking helps to improve a person physically, mentally, morally, and spiritually, all together.

Healing includes increasing spiritual understanding and awareness, the unfoldment of good, and curative treatments, curing illness, overcoming troubles and difficulties, solving problems, having needs met, being guided to safety, sorrow turning to joy, increasing peace and life and truth and love, and overcoming evil with good. A healing heals a person physically, mentally, morally, and spiritually, all together.

A healing may be ...
1. only a gain of spiritual understanding and improved morals, an unfoldment of good, and or being freer to do more good. This enriches and brightens our communities, the world, and the universe.
2. a gain of spiritual understanding and improved morals that help a person to meet their needs, cure illness, overcome troubles and difficulties, solve problems, turn sorrow to joy, be saved from danger, and or overcome evil with good. This enriches and brightens our communities, the world, and the universe.

The Good Journal daily entries may include:
Spiritual Statements, Radical Good! Cheers of absolute spiritual goodness about God, creation, and man. Cheers to support the good and diminish the bad. Up with the good, down with the bad! (Radicals - we do not want things that are radically bad, but we do want thing that are radically good!)
Moral Statements, Wholesome Good! Community Good! Cheers of how people can take moral and physical actions to help communities, people, and nature. Cheers to support the good and diminish the bad. Up with the good, down with the bad!
Examples of Caretaking and or Healings
(see above definitions)

Evil and sin are mistakes. The word "sin" comes from archery and means to make the mistake of not aiming the arrow well enough so that the arrow misses the target's bullseye. Spiritually, we exist to be good and hit the bullseye of good and spirituality. During our time on earth, we should continually try to advance our understanding of spiritual goodness, no matter how good or bad we think we are. Learn more about goodness, do more sophisticated good. Spirituality is learning more about goodness and how to better listen to God. Like the physical sport of archery takes practice, spiritual skills require practice too. Archery takes practice, but we can get better at it. Spirituality takes practice, but we can get better at that too. (To gain spiritual understanding, I suggest you read the Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy. Learn more at www.christianscience.com) To think of ourselves as sinners is the negative way to think of our spiritual identity, and hinders our spiritual skills. While practicing archery, it helps us to hit the target by thinking that we can hit the target. While puffing up the hill, it's best that the "Little Engine that Could" train engine thinks that she can get up the hill. Spiritually, let us know that we are not sinners, let's know that our true origin is spiritual and good and sinless, God never created a sinful man, God is all good and only good, God created us to be good - understanding and knowing this best helps us to hit our spiritual targets and progressive good. Let's cheer each other on: we are good and sinless, because God is good and sinless, we can all discover and express more of our moral and spiritual identities. God, good, is infinite, and there is always more to learn about God, good. Happy discovering more about good!
