HONESTY MONTH: DAY 1: “The truth is the only thing worth having, and, in a civilized life, like ours, where so many risks are removed, facing it is almost the only courageous thing left to do.”― E. V. Lucas
I sometimes feel uncomfortable around honesty…talking or writing about it. I remember early meetings when readings at the beginning of the meeting would talk about “constitutionally incapable of becoming honest with…” self. Ugh! I knew that was me.
And we all have a certain level of delusion around ourselves. It is imperative for me that I do whatever I need to do to dissolve them, because they keep me from that relationship I most fervently crave…with that Power in the Universe that feeds me and my spirit.
And it IS the only courageous thing to do. I love that! I know a LOT of chicken shit people…and they have no honesty in themselves. They believe honesty is telling me what they think…not what they are truly up to. Waste of time, really. So many masks, and then wonder why no one “gets” them. Yeah!
