Honesty & Integrity

By Sherman R. Buck

 

 

 

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE CANNOT BE ATTAINED WITHOUT COMPLETE HONESTY AND INTEGRITY. BEING HONEST MEANS FACING ONESELF FULLY. AND BARING ONESELF TO ANOTHER UNFLINCHINGLY. WE LIVE IN A CULTURE FULL OF ILLUSIONS, LIES, DISTORTED REALITIES BECAUSE THE MANY ARE TERRIFIED OF BEING VULNERABLE. ONE CANNOT KEEP SECRETS AND LIVE IN UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. ONE CANNOT HAVE PEACE WITH SECRETS. SO WHY DO WE KEEP SECRETS? WHY DO WE CONTINUE TO BE DISHONEST AND CHOOSE TO NOT HAVE PERSONAL INTEGRITY?

AS CHILDREN WE LIVED THE TRUTH. UNFORTUNATELY THE TRUTH GOES AGAINST THE WAY THE ADULT WORLD OPERATES; DYSFUNCTION VERSUS FUNCTION. THE WORLD DOES NOT FUNCTION, IT DYSFUNCTIONS. WE ARE SO FAR AWAY FROM THE LEVEL OF HONESTY AND INTEGRITY NECESSARY FOR UNCONDITIONAL LOVE THAT ONE WOULD LITERALLY BECOME SICK, DISGUSTED, AND NAUSEOUS, IF THEY WERE TO EXPERIENCE THIS LOVE.

WE ACCEPT FEAR, ANGER, HATRED, AND VIOLENCE AS A WAY OF LIFE. WE TEACH FEAR TO OUR CHILDREN, WHICH IN ESSENCE IS TO CLOSE OFF TO LIFE, TO CLOSE OFF FROM LIVING FULLY IN OUR COMPLETE ESSENCE AS A SPIRITUAL BEING. THAT IS THE PROBLEM, FOR THE ADULT WORLD IS NOT INTERESTED IN A PERSONS SPIRIT BEING PRESENT IN THE WORLD. WHEN SOMEONE'S SPIRIT IS PRESENT, THEY CANNOT BE LIED TO, MANIPULATED, INTIMIDATED, OR COERCED. THIS IS WHY THE PROCESS OF BREAKING A BEINGS SPIRIT STARTS AT A VERY EARLY AGE. IT IS THE ONLY TIME WHEN A BEING IS THE MOST VULNERABLE TO BEING BROKEN COMPLETELY. YOUNG BEINGS ARE TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON ADULTS FOR PROTECTION, SHELTER, FOOD, CLOTHING, AND TO BE EDUCATED ABOUT THE WAYS OF THE WORLD. BEING DEPENDENT MEANS THEY HAVE TO TRUST ADULTS. AT SOME POINT THEY SEE THROUGH THE FACADE OF THE ADULT WORLD. IN ORDER TO SURVIVE, SPIRIT DISCONNECTS FROM THE BODY AND OUR DIRECT CONNECTION TO SPIRIT IS FORGOTTEN, A SORT OF AMNESIA OR HYPNOTIC TRANCE.

A CHILD COMES INTO THE WORLD LOVING UNCONDITIONALLY, WHICH IS WHY THEY LOVE EVEN THE WORST OF PARENTS OR ADULTS. UNFORTUNATELY, THEY ARE NOT LOVED UNCONDITIONALLY IN RETURN. OVER TIME THEY ARE SYSTEMATICALLY FORCED TO CONFORM TO WAYS THAT ARE TOTALLY AGAINST SPIRIT. THEY ARE TAUGHT A WAY OF LIFE THAT IS FOREIGN TO UNCONDITIONAL LOVE ITS NOT EVEN FUNNY. THEY ARE OFTEN PHYSICALLY ABUSED, HUMILIATED, MOCKED, RIDICULED, EMOTIONALLY ABUSED, INTIMIDATED, HARASSED, SEXUALLY ABUSED, SHAMED, AND PUT ON GUILT TRIPS. ALL OF THESE MODALITIES OF ABUSE ARE USED TO FORCE CONFORMITY TO VARIOUS POLITICAL, RELIGIOUS, SOCIAL, FAMILIAL BELIEFS THAT SERVE PARTICULAR SELF-SERVING OUTCOMES. NONE OF THEM HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

MOST OF HUMANITY IS ANTI-LIFE, ANTI-LOVE, ANTI-SEX, ANTI-SPIRIT. OH, THEY THEY MAY TALK ABOUT BEING PRO-LIFE, AND GO TO GREAT LENGTHS TO GIVE PARTICULAR IMPRESSIONS CULTIVATED TO CREATE ELABORATE ILLUSIONS. I'M REMINDED OF THE WIZARD OF OZ WHERE DOROTHY AND HER FRIENDS VISIT THE GREAT WIZARD. WHILE THE WIZARD IS PUTTING ON HIS SHOW SCARING THEM, TOTO GOES SNOOPING AROUND AND FINDS SOMETHING. TOTO BITES ONTO THE CURTAIN AND BEGINS TO PULL ON IT, REVEALING THE REAL WIZARD BEHIND THE CURTAIN AND THE ILLUSION HE WAS CREATING. EACH OF US HAVE BEEN TAUGHT TO DO THIS, TO CREATE A FALSE FACADE BECAUSE WE GREW UP IN A WORLD THAT HAD NO HONESTY AND HENCE NO INTEGRITY. WHEN THE HONESTY FADES AWAY, INTEGRITY FAILS AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE CEASES TO EXIST. 

OUR CURRENT DEMISE HAS OCCURRED BECAUSE OF A LOT OF MANIPULATION BY DYSFUNCTIONAL INDIVIDUALS; HUMANS OUT OF TOUCH WITH THEIR SPIRIT. WITHOUT ACCESS TO THIS SPIRIT, A PERSON TRIES TO FORCE HIS/HER WAY TO GET WHAT THEY WANT BY GETTING OTHERS TO CONFORM TO THEIR IDEOLOGY. THIS IS WHAT POLITICAL IS ABOUT, AND POLITICIANS AND RELIGIOUS LEADERS HAVE NO INTEREST WHATSOEVER IN COMPLETE HONESTY AND INTEGRITY. UNCONDITIONAL LOVE REQUIRES NOTHING FROM THE OTHER, SO ONE IS ALLOWED TO BE LEFT ALONE TO BE WHATEVER ONE IS MOVED TO BE BY SPIRIT. HONESTY AND INTEGRITY ARE MATTERS OF THE HEART.
