In modern society it is often supposed that morality is outdated. Everybody should be free to do what they want, and become who they like. This often means lack of meaning and unstable wills. But the human being is a real person, and has to strive to get to know him or herself. This knowledge can only be obtained through truthfulness, true thoughts, and honest feelings. The person will develop when he or she fights to understand the good, to find beauty and truth, to see one's own place in a greater connection, and to engage in reflective dialogue with other persons. Out of this come rules of life such as generosity, friendship, and love. This is a great challenge that will release the true person, and make the will healthy. It makes morality a necessary guide to reality.
