Hmm.. National Sovereignty?

Integrity is seeking help when we really need it, be it council,
life coach, religion, self reliance.

Example.
Hypothetically, someone had been
a habitual liar, con man/woman, addict, alcoholic etc.
Having found freedom from these character flaws behind a closed
door with council.

Of course these characters believe they are the only one who knows
and see’s these struggles
and now has found within themselves integrity through council.
Feeling complete and successful.

All the while never having
apologized to those that have suffered at the hand of their
dishonor and dishonesty.
Still and Yet, “said person”
is no longer living with these problems.
Is this integrity?

Everyone eventually sees the change, however left feeling hurt, and neglected, without recognition for having been lied to, conned, etc. Does this classify still as Integrity simply because “subject” has changed their ways?

Is integrity an opportunity to
acknowledge our faults in conversation, humility and an
honorable apology? Even if the
Humility and apology isn’t
accepted, This is beautiful.
This is integrity.
This is success.

When we can share out loud the flaws
we had, find humility.
Here is where success begins.
Success is not letting self down.
Integrity is personal.

I believe in forever. I believe that the spirit is the love heart. I believe that the spirit is the “souls” (source) heartbeat. I believe in high-spirited humans. I believe in the truth of meeting your souls counterpart in a whirlwind of spiritual dance. I believe life unfolds us in a perfectly charted Uni’Verse’All choreography. I believe in Uni’Verse’All Human Beings. A race where we all finish together, there is no first, and there is certainly, no last; there is only Being Human. I believe that a huge majority misses (longing for what is forgotten) the colors of the rainbow, when in reality; It’s always there even if you can’t see it. I believe we all paint our own picture every day. What it looks like is up to us. I believe that we are all within one system, one spirit, one song, one dance, one breath. ONE 1! I believe we are all one; At least we should be. I believe the day drips with dreams and divinity. I recognize that the sky is not the limit. But what I wonder..... Why is it that we only love to the moon and back? When we can love to the furthest reaches of all galaxies and never return.
