Values

Have you got a code you live by? What are the principles or set of values you actively apply in your life?

I wouldn’t call it a code. Sounds to me like something cold and closed that requires a blind compliance. I need freedom. Of course I live in accordance with some fundamental values. Few but very important for my life, that My parents  taught me  and then have taken root in my life with the time. Values based primarily on the Gospel and the teachings of Jesus Christ, such as those contained in the Sermon on the Mount. Mainly are summarized in love God above all things and our neighbor as oneself. Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself. Demand respect and respect, therefore, the freedom of others. I am an enemy of a comprehensive system of rules. I prefer wide open spaces for freedom of decision in consciousness, and have an open mind to the dialog.
