I believe that moral virtue not only preserves my good name, but that it also strengthens my soul and brings good luck and prosperity not only to myself, but my friends and my family and everyone in my network of social obligations.
The virtues I believe in can best be summed up by the Nine Noble Virtues, and the concepts of Örlog, Wyrd, and Hamingja described on that page fit as well-- though I don't share the belief that a single family hails from a single god.
The Daoist influence comes about by viewing the world as the product of different flows of energy, which I believe refines and expands upon many of the concepts found within my native Ásatrú. Life exists in opposing and complementary forces, which drive the cycles of everything from the stars in their orbits, to the flow of blood in our veins, and the cycle of death and rebirth.
My ethics and my understanding of social obligation are also influenced by Confucian thought, though I disagree with the Confucian understanding of the relationship between husband and wife. In general, I view the web of right relationships as more reciprocal than hierarchical, even in relationships of authority.
btw, Athiests are more than Christians by 1 !
Interesting that there is a difference between this poll results and the ones in the religious forum a few months ago. Obviously a lot of the more Christian members did not show up to vote in that poll.
