Truthfulness

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.

  1. Timely post...thank you. I have been engaged in this "extreme consciousness" practice now, for the last two weeks, and while it has enriched my life beyond measure, and that of my loved ones as well, it also creates small mini psychic earthquakes as paradigms shift to create more room for steadfast truth, cradled with kindness, humility and fairness. It seems when we practice Truthfulness, the authenticity in each person engaged in the giving and receiving dials up, that much higher. An amazing process. Risky. Scary. Exciting. Truthful.

  2. I googled your quote and apparently Adolf Hitler is the original quoter ending with "..and love of the Fatherland."
    Obama has quoted this historical figure but ended the quote with "..and love of God and country." Interesting article exploring subject:

Seeing Good At Work
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! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
