Honesty and Integrity
Honesty: Uprightness, probity, or
integrity. Truthfulness, sincerity, or frankness. Freedom from deceit or fraud. Oxford Dictionary
Peter: Honesty is a high ideal that it is not possible in practice within
the Human Condition. It falls in the same category as telling the truth. Children are taught the principle of truth and honesty and then are
lied to and deceived by parents, teachers and peers. In fact, in many cases, to hold righteously to honesty as a principle would mean to offend
or do harm to others. The current New Dark Age version of honesty is usually a sugar-coated recipe for being malicious to someone else,
as in – ‘I must be honest with you’ or ‘I am trying to be honest with myself lately, so I just want to share with you that I feel you
The endemic corruption, fraud, graft, deceit, duplicity and deception in each and
every human society and organization is ample evidence that the ideal of honesty fails to keep a lid on the inherent rotten-ness of the
psychological and psychic entity that will do anything to ensure it’s own survival. Most people avoid the only valid application of honesty
– to be honest with oneself. After all, to fool oneself is to be foolish indeed.
Being freed of the hypocritical ideal of honesty allows one to act appropriately,
sensibly, and beneficently – in all situations. In my experience there is yet another quality which may well be as important, if not more
important, than altruism in evincing self-immolation.
This quality is integrity –
Integrity: 1 the condition
of having no part or element taken away or lacking; undivided state; completeness. 2 The condition of not being marred or violated;
unimpaired or uncorrupted condition; original state; soundness. 3a Freedom from moral corruption; innocence, sinlessness. b Soundness
of moral principle; the character of uncorrupted virtue; uprightness, honesty, sincerity. Oxford
Having experienced this integrity of innocence, benevolence and
undividedness in pure consciousness experiences it then becomes a prime motivation to experience it 24 hrs. a day, every day. The absence of
conflict, confusion, deceit and duplicity – the absence of both the social and instinctual entity that are in constant battle has to be
experienced to be understood. One cannot understand it unless one experiences it although it certainly helps if one is prepared to risk rocking
one’s boat. By digging into one’s self one is certainly much, much more likely to induce a pure consciousness experience. By doing nothing,
one gets nothing in return. Unless one investigates, one never finds out. Unless one changes, one stays the same. Unless one is motivated by
integrity then one will remain a very, very cunning entity either fighting it out in the ‘real’ world or travelling on the spiritual path
of self-discovery seeking self-satisfaction and self-aggrandizement.
Being guided by integrity or being guided by sincere intent ensures that I will not
deceive myself, that I will be honest with myself, that I will not settle for second best – that I will not stop until I live the pure
consciousness experience, 24 hrs a day every day, until I am irrevocably free of the Human Condition.
