Honesty

Share it Please

“What is uttered from the heart alone, Will win the hearts of others to your own.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

William Shakespeare wrote “The good I stand on is my truth and honesty.” Thomas Jefferson called honesty “the first chapter in the book of wisdom.” John Lyly warned us that those who lose their honesty have nothing else to lose. By honesty we mean more than the direct revelation of facts. We mean what Goethe is referencing in the quote above: that which is consistent with our hearts. Through this practice of daily journaling you are acquainting yourself with your heart as you investigate what is important to you, and how those values drive your participation in the world. The more you become aware of this inner world, the easier it becomes to know your heart and express it.

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
