Right I have climbed off the ladder... what a time of painting, organising and generally getting things sorted. Never alone in my day, the Guides help me endlessly to reach understanding and learning in the best way they can, with situations and people. I love this life, so designed for ultimate understanding of self.
I have been doing some talks recently, in Ashburton and here in Christchurch and locally. Each time I have been blessed to pass on the insights from the Guides on subjects of value and integrity of self and it has been truly interesting to see the "pennies" dropping as people get to see views from very simple aspects, in fact the simpler the aspect the more it makes sense.
I never quite know before hand which direction the Guides will take me on simply as they adjust the understanding to the people who are available at that time, and again and again, I learn something, for which I am truly grateful.
One of the topics they asked me to discuss was Spiritual Integrity...
There is many truths, many understandings, and it is important to respect others for their understanding as well. We, as humans, love when others are on board with the same vision, the same understanding. However, at times we can be very dogmatic in our approach to flexibility and understanding of others truths as well. Is it really okay to demand that someone else see it your way? your point of view? For me, part of my growth and understanding has been holding to my own truth of what I get for myself and people. I simply live what I believe, however I would not consider this to "the perfect analysis". Why? Well simply because I am here, having my own human journey as well, and my own mind, has its understanding, its own concept and my own way of communication. Just because someone words something differently, has a different concept certainly does not mean that they have it wrong, they simply are owning their truth for them.
Tai simply says at times, "Believe in what you know in your heart, what resonates at your very core". For me, most of the time, that means the person's frequency of integrity. There is such a difference in saying the "right thing", "talking the talk", because if you are talking about something you think is amazing but you don't believe it or own it, the frequency sounds hollow, a bit like someone talking down a tube. The acknowledgement is there, however the intensity of integrity, of the "this is me" what I believe, is not. It's echoing, hollow, and flat. The person's integrity of what they believe is not behind the words and therefore for me, talking the talk is okay, however doesn't resonate with my being for me personally.
The frequency of integrity behind the Spiritual Understanding when fully embraced by someone rings with a purity, a passionate truth of self. This frequency does not need to "convince" another of what you believe, it embraces all understanding simply because, in the allowing each to their own learning, there is a greater depth of density. Unlike the "talk the talk" frequency, it is the "I am, what I believe" frequency, and the resonance of this frequency is lovely, like a pure note, a musical symphony.
We are here having a human journey, formed by what conditions we grew up in, our understanding, acceptance and tolerances of others, all governs our own Spiritual Integrity, and that is NOT a bad thing. Sometimes we are expected to be in a Spiritual Way "perfect" in our understanding. However, that is not what this journey is also about, we are supposed to have dramas, situations, loss of people, as we learn more and more about ourselves. Do I believe that ever stops? No I don't but I believe as we grow and learn our own truth about ourselves and our journey, then interactions with others become more accepting, peaceable, and understanding.
At times in the Spiritual Integrity stakes there seems to be a competitiveness, a drive to prove this way is better, this understanding more acceptable, when in reality each one of us is so diverse, so unique and so amazing, why on earth do we expect us all to think the same way? Our integrity asks us to be respectful, patient, understanding of others, so why shouldn't Spiritual Integrity be any different? When we start to understand that our own truth is governed by our tolerances and acceptances towards our own self, then we begin to lighten up on others around us, in our own expectations.
Tai says this also "You do not need to strive to belong, for simply you already do. Your perception that your truth should align with others perfectly, is again an expectation of yourself that is not being reasonable". So your inner truth shines still as your own, by the uniqueness of you. It needs no introduction, no demands of presence, no acknowledgement. For the brightest of lights of understanding, simply SHINE. When you have empowered yourself to accept all whom you are, warts and all but still shine in the truth of you, there is no need for justifying, criticising, or demanding. The simple Spiritual Integrity of self in an understanding and loving way, illuminates even the darkest of paths.
Put it this way, there is NO race and even if there was a race people are running on the track at all different stages of their growth and understanding. Just as it should be. There may be a cluster who communicate all at a level for a time and the resonance of that is lovely, but most people on their quest of understanding need to work within themselves, pulling on inner strength, understanding and growth to align their integrity of self. Stop looking around and look simply to being at one with you.
Find your truth and then empower you to hold to your own integrity of loving yourself and the world in the best way possible, not by demanding others listen, judging their truth, their view, but by your own example of loving accepting the differences and the different journeys. Simple really!
