I love this quote by Oprah “Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not.” I first questioned my own integrity in high school when my principal at that time touched the subject briefly..Is integrity teachable, anyway? I knew little about integrity back then, and realized that the conditioning of fear was the main reason for most of us moving out of integrity.
Integrity. The good in you coming out of you as a statement of who you know yourself to be. Integrity. The commitment to acting on what your heat feels and knowing your heart feels good about who you are and what you do in every situation. Integrity. The wilingess to be diligent in giving your best, first to yourself and then to everyone else, knowing that every moment of contact with another being is a gift from God. Integrity. Yearning to know the truth. Seeking the truth. Learning the truth. Spreading the truth. Acting in truth for the sake of honoring al that Is and choosing to live by all that honors you and honors God without condemning the other parts.
The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.
Your integrity is the power that records, rewards and restore your position in the universe of life, it records every thought you think. When the thoughts, words and actions you set forth in the universe do not honor the truth about you or the truth about the universe, integrity rewards you accordingly. My purpose of living is to honor life, honor God and honor myself. It is the same God goodness that life expects form you and will give you when you live a life of integrity.
Until today you may have been so concerned with doing your life right that you have moved out of integrity. Define your integrity. What are you doing? Why are you doing it? How are you doing it? What are the rewards you are receiving? What are the rewards you expecting? How are you honoring God and the universe?
So much love,
