A moral compass is defined as, “an inner sense which distinguishes what is right from wrong, functioning as a guide for morally appropriate behavior.”
A moral compass can be seen as “doing good,” or interpreted today such as, “I’m better than you” because I am doing good. The perversion of social media stigmatizes kind acts because everyone wants to be in the limelight or to be praised for their good work.
A compass is a navigation tool to get you back on path when lost in the wild or in the dark. Ironically, the needle points northward, which symbolizes our souls connection to God, the universe and source. The moral part of the compass includes the mental processes of our soul’s direction or guidance. It's the balance between the head and the heart.
"On the ocean of life, let your mind be the ship and your heart be the compass."
