Being spiritual (capable of higher concerns and of rising above the material), he must cultivate a global spiritual which, essentially connects him with God and the whole Earth community.
Being intellectual (gifted with mind, the faculty of knowing), he must constantly search for the truth. He seeks knowledge that would transform society and the world. At the same time he maintains a tolerant and open disposition of the mind.
Being moral (endowed with the faculty of freely choosing and loving) he must go out to others and in fact to all humanity in love.
Being social (living in a community), he must help build peace and justice in our society, through the pursuit of family solidarity as well as the common good and well-being of the larger society. He must also cultivate respect for human rights and active non-violence.
Being economic (bound to concerns of production and consumption), he must help achieve the of a more human and sustainable development for the community.
Being political (relating to the conduct of political affairs within the nation and the world), he must cultivate his sense of nationalism and globalism. For the former, love of country and national unity are foremost concerns while for the latter, global solidarity and peace are the fundamental goals.
The foregoing are values pertaining to the person as self; indeed, the human being must achieve integral self-development by cultivating his human faculties to the fullest possible. In fact, however, these values are actualized in society.
