Truthfulness is the practice of steadfastly speaking only that which, to the best of your knowledge, is true. It is a commitment to refrain from lying and breaking agreements.

But more than a blind adherence to facts, truthfulness goes hand in hand with a love of kindness, fairness, accuracy and humility.


The starting place for practicing truthfulness is watching the words that come from your mouth and maintaining a practice of speaking accurately, gently, honestly.

With the words you speak in good shape, the next step is to watch the thoughts you think. Rather than violently stopping or negating critical, gossipy thoughts, begin instead to question if they are accurate. Do this silently and over time you will notice a pattern: Unkind thoughts are frequently based on inaccuracies, assumptions and impulses.

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well!
