I found these guidelines of the Neopagan religion of Asatru, founded on the ancient Nordic pagan religion. I think they can apply to anyone, Christian or the non-religious as a guide to living better. I have these printed and hanging in my cube at work
Nine Noble Virtues.
By facing life’s struggles with courage, we constantly extend our capabilities. Without courage, nothing else can be done.
Blind faith has no place in our lives. We must act in this world as we see it and as it really is rather than calmly wait for the next.
We must be true to what we are, and we insist on acting with nobility rather than baseness. Our standards must be banners held high in our hearts.
We stand true to our faith and our values. Loyalty is the basis for all enduring human activity, and we hold it in the highest esteem.
The isolation and loneliness of modern life is not necessary. The willingness to share what one has with ones’ fellows, especially travelers, is a vital part of our way of life.
We hold to the discipline necessary to fulfill our purpose. We stand willing to exercise the self-control and steadfastness necessary in these difficult times.
Let us dare to be all that we can be! Let us take risks and taste the richness of life. Passivity is for sheep. We refuse to be mere spectators in life.
We depend on our own strength and character to achieve our goals. We seek only the freedom necessary to our quest, whatever it may be.
We hold to our path until its completion and are not ashamed to be strong. The cult of the anti-hero will find no support in us, and the gods we follow are not for the weak.
The symbols are Asatru symbols.
