Detailed Worldview Outline
Introduction
To be honest, the term “worldview” is completely new to me. However, in spite of the fact that I do not belong to any particular religion, I have always felt very connected to my own personal beliefs and to a higher power, so “worldview” actually feels very comfortable. I am excited to begin the challenge of answering the questions below in order to help shape and define my worldview.
* Who is God and what are His characteristics?
* God is a name given to a higher power; the creator of the universe and of all life forms.
* God is a spirit, a parent, and a teacher: As such, his character is compassionate and forgiving.
* What is a human being and what happens when you die?
* Human beings are one of God’s incredibly complex life forms which ...view middle of the document...

* How do you know what you know? How do you know what is true?
* My knowledge is derived from my experiences and interactions with others, discoveries, my senses, imagination, emotions, and my overall capacity to remember.
* Truth can only be found in the most objective sense: You must be able to look at facts without forming an opinion. What I know is true is ultimately only what I “think” is true.
* What is right and wrong or how can we know there is a right and wrong?
* I believe that our spirits are a product of God, but I do not believe that right and wrong is taught to us via the bible; rather it is an innate sense.
* We sense what is and wrong by intuition: Feelings of guilt and shame, or by elation and joy.
* Is life pointless or is there purpose?
* I strongly believe that we all have a purpose in life, which might simply be following the Golden Rule: If life did not have purpose, then “do unto others” would likely be pointless.
* I have always felt that certain life experiences are given to us by a higher power to help us learn and grow, or to help others learn and grow: Fate.

VII) What core commitments are consistent with my worldview and how do they impact my
life?
a) My main core commitment is to strive to have utmost integrity and virtue: To treat others fairly, honor other’s beliefs, to be non-discriminatory, non-judgmental, and to be honest.
b) When faced with difficult choices, integrity gives me a sense of clarity and reminds me that I alone am responsible for my life.
Conclusion
The purpose of this assignment turned into a longing write my Worldview Essay. There is so much to say about my worldview, but having to focus on finding that one perfect sentence to define an answer absolutely helped provide clarity. I admit that I struggled to define what my “core commitment” is, but I do feel confident in my answer.
