Today our focus is in our integrity. It is the core of who we desire to be. It is our compass which guides us as we go through this journey of life. Our journey into becoming is in a constant state of change. We find areas we have excelled in and we find areas where we need to improve. Integrity is our compass to help us stay on course throughout life's journey.
The beauty of our integrity is it can never be taken away. To loose it, it is by our choice... beginning with our thoughts. And yet, even our integrity is in a state of change and refinement. We may be strong in one area and weaker in another.
One of the visualizations I do, when I reflect upon integrity is I think of it as a beautiful sword. I visualize myself carefully taking care of this sword. Keeping it sharp and free from rust. I envision it have being forged with the finest metal. Each intricate carving in its handle and along its blade has symbolism which are meaningful to me, to remind me what my integrity stands for and how to use my integrity for good, not harm.
When I am finished with the care of the sword, I hold it high and make a commitment to always have it guide me. I watch it shrink into the needle of a compass which I hold in my other hand. Safely there, I close the lid. Placing the chain with my compass around my neck, my integrity is always near my heart.
As we reflect upon our integrity today, let it guide our thoughts into areas of improvement. Let us listen to the words of wisdom, it desires to share with us, to help guide our path to becoming what we desire to be.
