Is there a universal morality?

I think what you are asking is whether there can be any universal morality.
Morality is mainly means-ends. Means-ends relations are real and causality arguments can be evaluated or proven. That said it is pretty rare that there is one way to skin a cat. So people with the same or similar goals can behave very differently. I guess the more common goals you have the more likely behavior in the same environment will be similar.
As for the selection of goals, If you want your morality to be associated with positive emotions, i.e. a human morality, you are very probably constrained in the kinds of things you can select as goals unless you are psychologically disordered.
Your cultural training will likely influence you as well. Athiest people I know in Singapore have emotional ties to the Goddess of Mercy and a fear of ghosts. My morality upbringing is Catholicism/Orthodoxy, Ayn Rand/Leonard Peikoff (psychology of self-esteem by nathaniel branden), Decision Theory/Reinforcement Learning. From Christianity I learned there was God's morallity. From Ayn Rand the claim that morality is only needed if one chooses to live. From decision theory and reinforcement learning how to structure and compute outcomes and the usual uses of these methods in framing government policy, risk management, and robotics.

If I had all the answers Id finish writing a book but I would be just as happy writing a book that didnt have all the answers so if there are any collaborators out there anywhere interested in publishing something let me know.
