After reading a number of ethical wills, there are common themes that run through many of them. Older ethical wills contained burial instructions, blessings, and personal and spiritual values.
Here's a partial list of common themes seen in more modern ethical wills:
* Important personal values and beliefs
* Important spiritual values
* Hopes and blessings for future generations
* Life's lessons
* Forgiving others and asking for forgiveness
I need to do this. Let's call it a funeral for the fascination of me. People who are important to me will be consulted. If you are curious about my direction or content, feel free to call me. This is about saying all the things I need to, and never again saying the things I do not. Thank you for humoring me while I go through this.
