Personal integrity means living in accordance with our highest state of consciousness.
We continuously create our reality by our choices, moment to moment - creating and maintaining harmony by following our conscience and acting for the higher good.
Personal integrity takes courage.
We are being courageous in living according to our conscience when it would be easy to hide from others that we are not following our conscience.
It is easier to slide down the hill of life, maintaining or digressing in our current state of consciousness, than to follow the sometimes rocky climb up the path of what we know is right.
The reward for continually upgrading our personal integrity is that we become more conscious of our harmonious self-effulgent nature.
Through living with personal integrity others notice that we can be trusted. We become a trustworthy friend, an asset to our world family.
Meditation for Reflection
Sitting or lying still begin even breathing to calm the mind and relax the body - count 1 breathe in, count 2 breathe out, count 1 breathe in, and continue for a minute or more.
Think about one of the key phrases from your reading: Personal Integrity, Courage, Upgrading.
What is your understanding of the idea it represents? How could you apply it to your life?
Keep a journal at your side to jot down your ideas.
End your session by thinking with appreciation on the free gifts of life such as friendship, caring and acting with integrity. Take a deep breath, stretch, and get up or sleep.
Integrating our highest consciousness
Into daily living
Increases our capacity
To experience joy.
