Most religions have ethical strictures, either overt or covert.

What are your religion's ethical strictures?  Do you live up to them?

If it's a recon religion, how have these strictures changed from before?


The only ones I can think of at the moment are the Delphic Maxims: "Know Thyself" and "Nothing in Excess" or something along those lines.

The first one, I believe life is about trying to find yourself.  Many go their entire lives without trying to understand their deepest nature.  When it comes to myself, I feel that I am what I am.  I can't change it and neither can anyone else.

The second one I've been trying to do more recently.  I've started to eat in moderation and cut back on the number of sodas I drink daily.  And I'm taking steps to curb procrastination (excess free time that I could be using for studying/homework)

I don't generally call myself a recon, but my religion is recon-esque.  I don't think these values have changed much.  If anything we need them more today than we ever did.
