Only you know whether you are living a life that is true to your values. Less is hypocrisy and self-deceit. But if you are, you will naturally be confident and fearless.
We can do, perhaps... but will we? Plenty of capable people are more in touch with their fears than with their passion and compassion, and their actions therefore do not reflect their true nature. Harry Potter knew himself well enough - had the integrity - to never flinch from his responsibilities. As M.H. McKee said, "Wisdom is knowing the right path to take. Integrity is taking it."
If you are true to yourself then your integrity is guided by love, and everybody benefits from that higher consciousness, it's win-win all around.
Spread your light into the world with no strings attached. When you become too concerned with changing others, you can never truly change yourself. Transformation always begins within and then affects the world automatically. Shift yourself and the world around you responds.
You have to do what you feel is right, based on your heartfelt values. Others may not agree but pleasing one and all is not the point. If it's a question of protecting your integrity, that has to come before ingratiating people who may be inconvenienced. Wanting to please others or not wanting to upset them is not a good enough reason to compromise what we feel and know is the right thing to do; otherwise we climb on the slippery slide to a life without integrity, which is really no life at all. When you’ve discovered a value that you’d be prepared to give your life to uphold, at the same time you’ve found a heartfelt reason to live.
When you feel deep down like you're simply not a good person, you're more likely to be casually snippy, self-indulgent, selfish, or hurtful. On the other hand, when you feel your own natural goodness, you are more likely to act in good ways. Knowing your own goodness, you're more able to recognize it in others. Seeing the good in yourself and others, you're more likely to do what you can to build the good in the world we share together. Continues...
