Honesty and Integrity
probity, or integrity. Truthfulness, sincerity, or frankness. Freedom from deceit or fraud. Oxford
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 are...’
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 –
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 Dictionary.
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.
