morality without virtue

When it comes to a peaceful life, perhaps the only option is morality without virtue.

    Cute. I guess.

    If one is works on being moral then one is virtuous in some sense.
    If one has worked at being virtuous, one is moral in some sense.

    Many Buddhist hold the view that we should be practicing at the very least, the six important paramitas, or virtues of perfection: we are to be charitable, ethical, patient, we are to be enthusiastically Persevering, we are to practices meditation, and lives in accordance with one's insights into "universal wisdom"

    Practicing them is rarely very easy, but reading many statements such as yours on blogs such as yours gets me to practice at least three out of six. And they are the easier ones. Sometimes. LOL!

    Does that make me moral or virtuous?
    How about peaceful or mindful?

    I doubt it.

    May be it makes me more ignorant, less peaceful and lazier.

    I return you to your word noodles.
    Have fun!
    Remember: Do not serve spoiled noodles to you guests!
