Morality and spirituality: a selection of sites
Library of the site "Orthodoxy and Peace"
Orthodox spirituality is not abstract speculative ideas. It does not equal the recognition of the fact of God's existence. The spiritual is inseparable from the life of a person, a way of thinking and a direct connection with God. The spiritual man puts God in the first place in his existence and immediately or gradually refuses those or other earthly attachments that prevent him from gaining the Holy Spirit. Only that person whose soul is moved by the Spirit can be considered spiritual. He defines being.http://lib.pravmir.ru/library/readbook/212
There are many misunderstandings of human spirituality. The first understanding is an intellectually and culturally developed person who behaves morally in relation to other people. The second is the ability to go beyond the ordinary state into ecstasy. The third is pious behavior, careful enforcement of the law. Such were the Old Testament Pharisees.The fourth is the mental state of compassion, often caused intentionally. Such a mindset is achieved by imagination ...http://www.missionary.su/illiteracy/5.htm

Spirituality and morality are interrelated, but not interchangeable. They intersect, but are not identical with each other. The moral person will not do to the other what he would not want him to do. However, no one will know what he thinks and feels really. This seems not so important. His virtues are external. The spiritual is an inner work on oneself — a work that is hidden from the eyes of men, but visible to God.http: //www.kotovsk-istok.com.ua/vzglyad/cerkov/cer ...

A person may be immaculately moral, but far from the spiritual path. But the true spiritual personality will be moral. The thing is how we determine the meaning of being. If he is limited to food, drink, marriage and children, then such an individual is still far from spirituality. When the main thing in life is to betray oneself to God and to serve Him alone, then under the same, seemingly external circumstances, the inner content changes drastically.The soul is powered by a divine source.http: //www.biblioteka3.ru/biblioteka/osipov/kurs_1 ...
The spiritual life of a Christian means being in God, with God and for the sake of God. The New Testament fills man with the Spirit. The saints of God not only write sacred Scripture under His leadership, but also transform themselves into new people who live and feel differently and have the purpose of realizing the destroyed communion with God in their being. He who does not have in himself spiritual, but only carnal and spiritual, cannot mature for eternal life and the Kingdom of God. The task of the personality is the inner change of oneself.http://www.verapravoslavnaya.ru/?Duhovnostmz

Spirituality is perceived differently by the world and the Church. From a worldly point of view, she is synonymous with soulfulness, culture, and morality. According to the patristic spiritual opinion, one can only call that person who has the Holy Spirit in himself. Going along the narrow path of Orthodox spirituality, we can throw off the old man, with worldly passions, affections and inclination to sin, and put on the new. A spiritual person receives support from a divine heavenly source.http://azbyka.ru/duxovnost
Orthodoxy.ru - moral life
How to understand what is right and what is not? What principles to focus on? In the old days they were guided by ascetic approaches. Then came the era of moralizing. Now think more about etiquette than about ethics. It has become more difficult for us to live, because commonplace life reference points turn out to be rather vague. Deacon Pavel Serzhantov on the site “Orthodoxy.ru” talks about this.http://www.pravoslavie.ru/67960.html
The secular understanding of spirituality and morality, as a rule, coincides. Both terms are considered interchangeable: they denote a law-abiding citizen, brought up within the framework of ethical standards adopted by a particular society. However, patristic literature distinguishes these concepts. From the Orthodox point of view, it is about the relationship of man with God.
