Being Ethical

I’d like to think that I am an ethical person.  I try to do the right thing in any given situation, but I also occasionally do unethical like taking mild revenge at people who annoy me. (One co-worker drives me nuts sometimes, and I’ve gotten my revenge once or twice.)  I also take advantage of grey areas in the law, and do things like download television documentaries.  So, does this make me unethical?  I think it does to a certain extent.  Does this make me a bad Wiccan?  Yes, I think it does to a certain extent as well. 

It can be very difficult to reconcile one’s spiritual life with one’s everyday life.  I’m sure I’m not the only person who struggles with this.  And maybe that is okay, as long as we remain aware of these differences.  The Wiccan Rede is hard to live up to, especially if you choose to interpret it in a strict manner.  I do my best, but real life is much more difficult then theory.
