DAY 17: The thought for today is INTEGRITY.
“Do the Right Thing!”
Spike Lee used these words as a title for one of his movies. When faced with a choice, listen to your conscience, and be willing to act accordingly, no matter what others may say. You know what is right to do and you can choose to do it.
Integrity asks for firm adherence, especially, to a code of moral or artistic values and denies any form of corruption.
Integrity is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. And when I am in harmony, I am a model of non-violence.
“Learn to give expression to what you feel without blaming. Learn to listen to others in an open, non-defensive way….This creates a clear space for people to be as they are. No greater catalyst for transformation exists.” Eckhart Tolle, Power of Now
Today: When faced with a choice or decision today, I listen to my conscience and follow its direction. I’ll think a time when I listened to my heart when the people around me were doing otherwise and thus, I avoided some unpleasantness. I will remind myself of a time when I did not listen and I suffered unpleasant consequences. Now I know to listen and be glad!
