I wrote many blogs about honesty as it’s a virtue I work with on a regular basis and it’s part of my 5 Stages of Conscious Evolution process. The interesting thing is I keep discovering new layers of the real meaning of living by this word…
What I learnt is that we can make ourselves believe we are honest… Yep! Catch 22! How do you get out of that cycle? How do you catch yourself when you are trying to tell yourself that you are not lying to yourself?
It can be hard to do it on our own, that’s why I work with my mentor who keeps me in check… Sometimes “brutally in check”! Because I know I can make myself believe I’m doing something for the greater good of someone or because I really care about them. But if I’m honest with myself… I sometimes find that I‘m often self-serving. The great thing is that honesty gives me the power to choose if that’s how I want to show up to myself and others… That’s how we start living authentically.
How honest are you with yourself and how are you living your life?
So here are questions you can ask yourself to start the process of being honest with yourself:
Depending on what you are working on, some of these questions might not apply and others will be bang on.
The other thing about honesty is that you have to be ready to hear or see the truth. If you’re not ready, you will keep lying to yourself or making yourself believe anything you want. I know I found it hard to see the self-serving behaviour I had. I was judging myself a lot. But once I understood that my power came from being honest which gave me the opportunity and choice to change, I connected to the power of this virtue. It’s all about not clinging on to what the “human side of us” (or our humanity) wants and allowing ourselves to follow the guidance of Honesty.
