Truth or Lie: Integrity

“Integrity: Strict adherence to a moral code, reflected in transparent honesty and complete harmony in what one thinks, says, and does.”

What a concept

that some don’t understand

“Transparent honesty”

What is hard about telling the truth?

Fear of rejection, perhaps? Habit?

The third part of this definition

is also interesting:

“Complete harmony in what one thinks, says, and does.”

If one says one thing but does another,

is integrity absent? Is there wiggle room?

“Strict adherence to a moral code.”

What a can of worms

Perhaps honesty and

complete harmony…

is enough to strive for.

One thing for sure,

people are not perfect and

only G-d is completely

transparent and honest.

The author and conductor of the

universe supplies discernment so one can decide if trust is deserved.

Here is something I wrote in 2002 about G-d showing a way forward:

The Road to Happiness

Joy comes after grief and pain
happiness after sorrow
freeing me to love again
on the path toward tomorrow.

The road may be strewn with bumps
and sometimes I may stray
but looking backwards to the past
may make me lose my way.

Never looking back again!
traveling straight at last,
the road to happiness is ahead
G-d, show me the right path.

G-d is in control it’s true
H-‘ll catch me when I fall
Whenever I need comfort
H-‘s faithful through it all.

Joy comes after grief and pain
happiness after sorrow
freeing me to love again
walking forward toward tomorrow!”
