★ INSIDE EPISODE 18 – No, You Aren’t Living In Integrity.
Defined: “#Integrity means having a conscience and honoring this conscience even when doing so may involve considerable personal sacrifice. It means placing the dictates of the soul and God above those of the ego..” – Dr. Andy Drymalski, Ed.D.
★ Integrity Is Rare And Rarely Used.
Turns out when asked what integrity is… few people can answer the question.
#Wifey and I have been discussing this recently because of our contract.
Some call it #honesty.
Some call it #character.
Some say it is keeping your word.
I think it goes much deeper than that.
★ Integrity As Flow.
The word itself comes to us from the Latin meaning sound, complete, or whole.
It implies no division within oneself.
If we take this deeper, we can see that integrity is alignment of our beliefs with our #actions.
It’s not enough to keep our word… The word we keep must align with the #beliefs we hold.
In this way, it flows from our #essence from the inside out… bypassing ego.
★ Why Is It So Hard To Do.
Social situations can get in the way.
#Ego shows up.
Small talk example.
Wedding example. //THE HARD TRUTH.
When our actions are based on ego, they generally pull us out of integrity. //ASK AND APPLY.
Ask yourself this: Where in your life are you out of integrity? Work, home life, #relationships, where do you see action that doesn’t align with your beliefs or desires?
Once you have your answer, it’s time to do the hard thing.
Apply the concept: Come up with at least one way you can use what you just learned to step into a place that requires you to step toward the #real you, your real beliefs… and without waiting, put it into action.
Like Rumi said, “As you start to walk on the way, the way appears”. What say you? Tell me who you really are below. .
Sight + Light.
Remember: there is #norestfortheworthy
Be. Do. Have... In that order.
