You Are in Integrity When the Life You Are Living on the Outside Matches Who You Are on the Inside
“You are in integrity when the life you are living on the outside matches who you are on the inside”
~ Alan Cohen
We can all think of times when we were not in integrity, with ourselves but also with others. Being in integrity is following that inner voice that gives you a knowing of what to do in every situation. Doing what is right for you, allows others to do the same. Being truthful with ourselves is often the hardest part of being integral.
Let’s take a look at how we view integrity and how our life reflects what we think and feel.
What does integrity mean to me?
How does being in integrity affect my life and the life of those around me?
What happens when I am not in integrity, with myself? With others?
Why do I choose that? Is it because I don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings? Or am I afraid?
Do I worry about how it looks to others?
Do I care what others think?
Where do I rate the importance of integrity?
Have I even thought about it before today?
How can I live each moment in integrity?
Sometimes we are in situations that challenge our souls, we might have spent hours working on something or investing in someone, only to have the knowing that where it started and where it seems to be going are in conflict with our integrity. We then struggle with what to do to change the situation. In these times we need to trust ourselves, trust that things will work out exactly how they are meant to. We need to trust that we are being true to who we are, and who we are becoming so that we can live our life purpose. It’s only when we do this that the world opens up and offers all kinds of signs and opportunities. When we can trust in ourselves, we are living in integrity and our world will eventually reflect and reward those who are living and being true to their life path. In hind sight, things always work out, use this knowledge to learn to trust, so that you can follow your gut, and although you might not see where you will end up, you can trust that things are unfolding exactly how they should! That is what living in integrity will bring to your life!
