Honesty Is Best

When speaking about the topic of honesty, what comes up in your mind? I respect honesty. I rather choose to face the truth even though it might hurt me rather than facing the normal circumstances but there's a lie behind it. I really respect those people who stand up for the truth and speak about honesty. Now I am wondering whether honesty has any relation with courage? Does it mean that those who has courage are those who speak for the truth? Or is it only depends on the inner-self of someone? I think honesty is like learning a new language, the more practice you have, the easier for you to speak the language. This also applies to the language of honesty, the more often you tell the truth, the easier it will be to say things based on honesty. I am not saying that you always have to tell the truth even about the smallest and unimportant thing. The most important thing is to be able to identify which words you should tell with honesty and which one you should keep it for yourself without making yourself a liar. As a human being, we have feelings, we can feel hurts or pain, we can also feel joy and happiness. Whatever it is, just stay true..true to yourself.


The Energy Of Honesty


As children most of us learn that honesty is better than dishonesty, and we may not question this beyond whether or not to do what we’re told. As adults, however, we can go deeper to examine our choices as investments of energy with predictable risks and returns. When we speak the truth, we affirm what already is. This is like using a paddle when the stream is already moving the same direction. We are already supported by the universe and its energy flow, so we don’t need to exert much energy, leaving more for other pursuits. But dishonesty redirects a portion of our energy against the flow, which requires extra effort. In addition, it creates an alternate reality that requires further energetic input to be maintained. So we can easily see that we are best served when we work with the flow of the universe.

Life is not always clearly defined, so we may find it useful to follow our choices to their logical conclusions. We may feel that little untruths are harmless, but they can be like small cracks that weaken an overall structure over time. Even giving someone a compliment or trying to protect them can create problems later when the alternate reality we’ve created becomes the basis for further actions. Even if the actions that follow are honestly done, the underlying unstable foundation of dishonesty will threaten to topple things eventually. This can lead to further energy being spent on keeping things hidden, working to remember the tales we’ve spun and fearing the consequences of being found out. Life doesn’t need to be this draining, but we can make the choice to free ourselves from the bonds of dishonesty at any time.

Speaking and living our truth may involve risking, among other things, the possibility of rejection. But when we allow ourselves to follow the flow of life, we are supported. We can then use our energy to cultivate physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being and to create our dreams, rather than leaving ourselves too drained to even maintain our existence. Today we can make honesty our choice in every interaction, bringing the nurturing power of the universe’s energy into our lives to bring positive, lasting results.

Great post Boya, actually it has given me some peace since I publicly renounced awards and tags the other day. I actually never wanted to accept the very first one because of all the strings attached and the anxiety it caused me, it took me months to finally say I can't do it anymore! I was afraid of rejection, and in the end, as your post says, no matter the result, honesty is best. I feel good now. Anyway, sorry to yatter on your comment form, great post today!
:)
