 The Definition of Morality (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
A society might have a morality that is primarily concerned with practices not related to other persons, e.g., which days must be devoted to certain rituals, and might claim that their morality, which is concerned primarily with ritual, is based on the commands of God.
When “morality” refers to the codes of conduct of different societies, the features that are essential are that morality is a code of conduct that is put forward by a society and that it is used as a guide to behavior by the members of that society.
But “morality” does not refer to just any guide to behavior accepted by an individual, it is that guide to behavior that the individual adopts as his overriding guide, and wants everyone else to adopt as their overriding guide as well.

 Objective Morality   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Although any moral discussion can be fraught with disagreement, if we have defined goodness as that which contributes to persistence (through the persistence of existence generally: life as a form of existence, types of living organisms, and individual organisms), we can make considerable headway on any given moral question.
Once we accept that the degree of goodness corresponds to the extent to which an act or action contributes to the persistence of life as a form, we must agree that morality can’t be understood solely and simply through a particular religious text or teaching, or through human law.
Morality operates as a very pertinent and important concept, and one that, as conscious beings, we must consider in the context of the choices we make in the world.

 Morality
To make decisions easier, we develop virtues which are moral habits which tend to help gain values.
This is not useful because within the sphere of pretty much anything goes, there is no methodical way to choose which action is best, whereas positive morality sets forth habits which lead to the achievement of values and methods for choosing what to value which is the way to live and thrive.
With ones own life as the standard of value, morality is not a burden to bear, but a prudent and effective guide which furthers life and success.
