Honesty with the Self
Honesty is not found in revealing the truth, but in understanding how deeply afraid of it we are. Where we cannot go in our mind, our memory, or our body is where we cannot be straight with another, with the world, or with ourselves.
Human beings dwell intimately close to a door of revelation they are afraid to pass through. Honesty with the self simply means taking time to look within, to notice and acknowledge what we truly feel in our body, in our mind and in our heart, as we meet ourselves, the world and others.
(Inspired by the poetry of David Whyte)
