February 2018 Lesson Two
Do you consider yourself a person of integrity?
Definition: The quality of being honest; having strong moral principles; moral uprightness; The state of being whole and individual; Upholding territorial integrity; Holding personal sovereignty
As I write, two thoughts pop:
One: The videos of small dogs whose owners have trained them to walk upright to dress them as toddlers.
Two: In 8th grade, I had a friend with an amazing laugh. I so wanted to laugh as she did so I would also be amazing. What do these thoughts have to do with Integrity?
Being honest and in a state of wholeness.
We all know that a small dog walking and dressing like a toddler is not a reflection of dog wholeness. And as amazing as my friend's laugh is, if I, or any of us, were to bend, and twist, to another's gifts, the media's sense of "good" or another person's perceptions, we would not reflect our Personal Self.
Last month I suggested that when you have a false signature, you have no identity. With no identity, you are not recognized, heard, or valued. With an identity, a sense of presence, a soft voice will be heard and valued.
With last lesson's assignment to sit and connect with an inner awareness of You, did you beginning to sense your Self?
This month I invite you to make your principles, values, and joys primary, the "I" to which you align affording the opportunity to have integrity. When you know your qualities and values, then it is clear that contrary expressions are foreign. Contrary expressions are like cancer cells are within your physical body. In your body, the T-cells of the immune system have the job of identifying foreign growths and call for help to contain and remove them. This month, You are going to be the T-cell for your life! A T-cell indicates what is foreign. Without an Identity of Self, there can be no "foreign."
How do we build a new world? Step by step with a new awareness of Our Selves.
Thanks for being on this journey!
