Video: A Life of Courage. Living with Integrity.

Share it Please
Living with Integrity requires courage.  This month we are focusing on integrity as a spiritual value.  Great questions to contemplate this month are, In what do you have great confidence? What are you sure of?  These questions prompt me to examine if I have solid conviction in what I say I believe, and if I have the courage to stay with my spiritual convictions while facing life's trials.

Ernest Holmes addresses the matter head on, without beating around the bush, writing, “Get some degree of real conviction and stay with it. The Cosmic Mind is neither wishy-washy nor willy-nilly. It is positive, certain of Itself, and sure of the outcome.”

What am I sure of? I’m beginning with that question, and collecting answers that I have confidence in. I’m sure of loving kindness. I’m sure about the power of giving. I’m definite about kindness. I trust goodness, and I see all of these certainties as being related to my conviction that God is all there is.

What are you sure of?

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
