Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not. Oprah Winfrey
Integrity isn’t so much about what you say; it’s more about who you are and what you do. It’s what steers you through life. It establishes your priorities and behavior so when you are morally challenged you know how to respond. It doesn’t matter how spiritual you are; from time to time you will cross a contradictory emotional battle within your soul as to how to be with the question at hand. You have found your edge and soul-stretching moment. You are often confronted with contradictory circumstances between what you want to do and what you know is correct to do. Your integrity brings clarity to these moments.
Integrity will not allow your actions to defy your heart. When you’re coming from a place of deep integrity, your conduct will be congruent with your heart’s desires. Your head won’t be tripping out on your past choices but instead will be free to live with a great sense of inner peace. Your integrity allows you to decide who you will be regardless of the dynamics of your world. Your values are what keep you from living as a split personality between who you want to be and who you are in the world by freeing you to be a whole person aligned in spirit, soul, and action, no matter what comes your way.
