Honesty (Daily Teaching for 2/12/14)

Except for the seriously mentally ill, we all know right from wrong. We also know that we all choose at times to cut corners, take shortcuts, and nuance the truth. There are also times when we just do the wrong thing, though perhaps for what seems to us at the time to be very good reasons. When we do make those choices, our conscience bothers us – and with good reason. Any time we act contrary to our beliefs, we create an inner disunity. If we do it long enough and often enough there can be serious psychological consequences. It’s much easier, and much healthier, to let our conscience be our guide.
