Living in integrity with something you don’t really believe in is out of integrity.
Integrity is not one size fits all. Integrity is a very personal and intimate thing. What is in integrity for one person may be out of integrity for another. It is only important for you to be in integrity with you. This means that it is essential for you to know yourself, and to know your personal integrity.
Everyone goes out of integrity from time to time, and when this happens, don’t blame or shame yourself. Instead, just notice and re-align. Notice where you are out of integrity.
Don’t make excuses or justifications. Don’t rational or self-judge. Just Notice and Re-align. Get yourself back in integrity to the best of your ability. Apologize, rectify, take responsibility or speak your truth – but only if that (approach) is in your integrity.
Most importantly, take a moment to understand yourself better – to see inside yourself – to get some clear insight, so that next time, your choices, actions, thoughts, and words will be in complete alignment with your integrity. So that you will be in integrity – with you.
But, here’s the thing – you may discover that what you call your integrity no longer suits you. If your integrity came from a religion, family belief or social background that no longer fits you, you may want to re-think – and discover integrity for yourself. Not what someone or something tells you – but what feels right, good and loving to you.
Living in integrity with something you don’t really believe in is out of integrity. When you are in alignment with your own integrity – your True Self – you are in alignment with your life, and life itself can be in integrity with YOU!
That’s the point.
