True Integrity As Fidelity To Truth

by Aisha Salem (May 3, 2013)

DC_field_RumiIn the turnover from the personal to the impersonal, the clear and truly loving, we face a definite turnover of our very understanding of what integrity is. In the exact same way as the definition of Love stands to be corrected along with the purification of Heart.

In the early steps of Life, we are faced with the task and responsibility of developing personal integrity. An integrity, which for starters becomes built on a moral code, to which we become hostages bound to be true to, due to the fact of needing love. The integrity which is based on personality is not true integrity. It is a fear-based conclusion, which as the outset ensures our very survival and belonging. At best a necessary step – of learning the base of right and wrong, according to being a straight person.

Once we meet up with the fact of Truth and surrender, we are confronted with the limitations of the do’s and don’ts hidden in the personal integrity along with its in-accuracy of being based on the personal- and thereby an individuals agenda. True integrity, on the other hand, is based on fidelity to Truth.

In embracing Life our fidelity slides; from that of being true to the personal aspect of ensuring love for ourselves; by acting according to the moral code necessary for self-preservation, to being true to that, which has- and carries the largest possible perspective of the totality of Love and highest benefit and therein the clarity of Truth. […]

It shows as continuously finding ourselves standing at the crossroads of making conscious choices – not according to what we want, but according to what is true and what we hear in listening to Hearts pure Will as the conscious and Truth-supporting choice. It also means meeting up with the personal pain of letting go of what we personally and previously have found pleasure in, merely for the fact of chosing honesty of Truth over gameplay.  […]

Dedication to Truth ensures operation of action, thought and speech according to willing Truth and pure Life rather than wanting pleasure.

In letting go and taking responsibility and thereby the consequence for our Life, the Truth of/in us grows stronger. It amounts to large personal sacrifice over time and as we cut the arms, legs and head off of our ego, but in the dedication to Truth, our every step is celebrated across the entirety of Existence and all the way into the Silence of Truth. […]

The people willing to meet- and walk with you in Truth will face the meeting with their own responsibility, fears and pain rising due to their ignorance… And the ones who deny to, will disappear. The outcome of this is not up to you. Your only task is to stay clear and become clearer.

The ego might (will) try to dance in trying to keep something alive, which is dying. As the result attempts at holding on are likely to occur. Watch yourself closely and avoid increasing the pain of letting go due to denial of the outcome. It is a fine balance – between quitting on the games, taking the blow and staying open and present.

Be aware of facing- and dissolving your beliefs and conclusions in catching the movement of anything attempting to manipulate- or defend itself based on wanting, rather than letting go based on dedication and love.

In embracing Truth, you will – at some point and as your demand for Truth grows – reach the impossibility of internally compromising and ”meeting half-way”. The very grounds of the conventionally understood integrity will crumble and fall to the delight of facing all of that, which clings to belief- and identification in you. That which used to jump onboard with games, becomes silent as the grave. […]

In staying with Truth, Life will assist your letting go by providing exactly what is needed. Not according to what you think you know or want, but according to admittance to the fact of not knowing- and embrace of what is supposed to be.

The dance with the world becomes based on being honest. Being true. And it does so in our quitting on our own games as well as in loosing our will to play them with others – in becoming loving enough for everyone to deserve your greatest openness and honesty. In wanting Nothing (Truth) no compromise will appear. […]

We must learn to love our Self in the way, which turns all loneliness into aloneness and thereby makes the principle of Love/Life/God permeate through not only our being with people, but through our being alone. When we are nolonger affraid to be alone, we will not bend backwards in ego-games to cling-, attain- nor constantly be together. We can be together, but we need not. We can be alone, but we need not.

As the personal games vanish, our being together is no longer about- or based on living personal lives. The whole game of attempting to be someone in relation to someone else is replaced by living side by side in the surrender to Life and in allowing whatever Life suggests of ”further” movement in supporting its own purification and unfolding.

Integrity is being true to That. Not to personal contracts. All personal contracts – of ownership, of respect based on self-preservation or self-protection must be torn. Be torn to the very unavoidable fact of Truth.
