This week’s invitation is to look at, and Be With what honesty is to you.
Honesty is such a relative commodity, changing vastly depending on who it is that is looking at ‘what is honest’ and how one defines honesty. Often, people do not even realize that they have a definition of honesty and mostly assume that honesty is a common truth.
The only honesty that is a common truth is the honesty that arises in the moment, from yourself to yourself. Depending totally on the depth of connection with yourself, the honesty will be a reflection of that. That is why honesty often changes over time – as one continues to evolve, one moment slipping into the next, deepening in this experiencing of life happening, how ‘honesty’ appears to be will change accordingly.
It can be so freeing to remember that no one else can share the same definition of honesty as yourself. Just as you are flowing along, getting to know yourself and your world increasingly, so is everyone else. If and when you feel shysted by another because they don’t appear honest to you, remember that honesty is relative and will mean something different to another.
What you can be sure of is this honesty with yourself when you look for it in the moment …so key: ‘in the moment’… it does not stretch beyond that as it may shift to something new in only another moment…who knows?! All one can look for is what is true for themself in a moment and respond from That as one does.
In actuality then, the ‘definition’ (any idea of that) is let go of when one looks in honesty with themselves for what is true in a moment – this truth will be made up of what appears in the moments of looking, not any definition beyond the moment. When you give yourself the freedom to let go of any definition (as they are revealed to you, or as you find them) of honesty, you instantly also release any wanting of ‘another’ to be more ‘honest’ or to conform to an idea of honesty (according to you) and instead be with what is actually true.
Come along and Be With us in Satsang with Canela where the space supports finding out what is true for you in each and every moment.
