Honesty

by Shervin on October 13, 2013

What is the greatest form of honesty? It is being honest and true about what and how we feel.

The first slippery path of dishonesty is lying to ourselves and ignoring what we feel. By lying to ourselves, it becomes easy to lie to others! By being honest to our feelings we can have more joy, laughter and physical comfort.

Are you honest?  Do you acknowledge what you feel? Do you express and verbalize what is happening within you?

Honesty

What is honesty?

Is it criteria we measure others with?

Are we honest with ourselves?

What does it mean to be honest?

Can we truly not be honest with ourselves and yet be honest with others?

Are you honest with your emotions and the truth of what you feel?

Can you name what you feel?

Do you accept your feelings?

Do you express them cleanly
or
do you expect people to read how you feel?

Do you listen and acknowledge what is within
or
do you rationalize it away?

Being silent where words need to be spoken
is a form of dishonesty.

//தம ழ ப த த ண ட என பத இந த மத நம ப க க கள ல ஒன ற . //True.It means that others, Muslims, Christians, non-Tamils resdeint in TN or accepted TN as their homes, should not celebrate this festival.This New Year is for Hindus only.The above begs the big question: WHAT SHOULD BE THAT FESTIVAL WHICH CAN BE CALLED A COMMON FESTIVAL FOR TAMILIANS?It entails a further small question:IF, INDEED, THERE IS NO SUCH FESTIVAL THAT CAN BE COMMONLY CELEBRATATE BY ALL TAMILS, IRRESPETCIVE OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THEM, IS NOT TIME THAT WE FOUND OUT OR CREATED SUCH A FESTIVAL?We must find ways to unite people; and if that is done, via a celebration of a festival by one and all, that will bring a feeling of oneness among us as Tamils.I understand other cultures have it. We lack it.What do you think Shri Dondu Raghavan?
