"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
Really amazed with this quote. How true is this quote. If you ask why Gandhi is so well respected, it is not just because he brought freedom for our nation, it is much more because of his truthfulness and integrity, which made him great being.
At oneness, we learn and realize that we don't accept our own selves, we give a lot of justifications to every action we do. Do we have inner integrity? It is scientifically calculated that on average a person lies about 150 - 200 times a day to himself, and to everyone around him. The strange fact is 90% of these we tell to our own selves. Inner integrity when truly followed can change your life to unbelievable levels. Inner integrity is not being honest, telling the truth in outside world. Inner integrity is accepting your own self as you are. Gandhi used to exhibit enormous energy despite having very little food because of his inner integrity.
If you really want to use this post, try this question to yourself....
1. Why do we lie even in outside world? Think for about 10 minutes and see the answers below and let me know your comments.
We lie most of the times because -
To yourself, because you cannot see yourself in a bad way.
To others, because
1. We don't want to use our energy in telling the truth to others
2. Telling lies has become a habbit.
I think there is one more reason, but I don't have the notes of my Oneness class. will let you know soon...
By the way, I am trying to be integral atleast to myself. Also, it is told when you try to be integral to yourself, you will automatically become an honest person.
Guys, I would love to hear your frank comments on this first blog of mine.
