Modern Day Chivalry for Men
Here in this article we discuss Modern Day Chivalry for Men. There’s a creed to confess to oneself that will help you to live an honourable life.
The 12 Trusts
Upon my honour I will…..
- Develop my life for the greater good.
- Place character above riches, and concern for others above personal wealth.
- Never boast, but cherish humility instead.
- Speak the truth at all times, and forever keep my word.
- Defend those who cannot defend themselves.
- Honour and respect women, and refute sexism in all its guises.
- Uphold justice by being fair to all.
- Be faithful in love and loyal in friendship.
- Abhor scandals and gossip, neither partaking nor delighting in them.
- Be generous to the poor and to those who need help.
- Forgive when asked, that my own mistakes will be forgiven.
- Live my life with courtesy and honour from this day forward.
By adhering to these 12 Trusts, I swear to partake in the living Quest in everything that I do.
The above trusts are a guideline for all men to adhere to. In fact, they are good guidelines for both men and women to live by. In our fast paced, modern day society, we have lost our ability to speak nicely to each other, and to be kind to one another. If everyone did these things, lived their lives in this manner, they would be much happier. People everywhere would be so much happier than they are now.
So in order to change your life for the better, just take one of these traits and practice it until you have integrated it into your life. Then do the same with another trait, until bit by bit you find that you have arrived at a completely new version of yourself. One who has honour and integrity, and who can be be trusted by others. It is then that you’ll find your own sage self.
