Life is, basically, a game in which we learn the basic rules of the place we’re in, in order to “fit” in the present model. When we think about that as a puzzle, it’s like trying to place a piece by forcing it where it doesn’t fit naturally, at the end it manifests incoherence. When we start questioning ourselves about everything in our lives, we perceive that there are game strategies that allow us to know ourselves deeply, so we can really fit in that puzzle in infinite expansion, then the result is coherent.
By using the concept of the puzzle in our lives, we can perceive that we have many possibilities of forcefully fitting our own pieces, everything we are, either because of the power of our mind or the unconscious patterns we carry, but only one way of fitting everything naturally: building up from whatever potentiates our peace.
Then, here are some actions we can integrate to our lives, to inspire integrity from our example, for us who want to build a coherent, transparent and sustainable society from integrity:
Authenticity: being authentic goes beyond what is evident, is truly knowing ourselves, understanding what truly potentiates our inner peace and put it into practice, to build from our talents integrated to our personality, the appropriate way of contributing in this moment, stopping following models to start following our heart.
Contribution: by exercising our authenticity, we understand that competition becomes obsolete, since we learn to build our own dreams without the need for winning or desiring the same that other people, this is the way we truly contribute, we just do what’s necessary from the certainty of who we are from our essence (click here to read about integration of our essence).
Expression: as we contribute from our authenticity, we perceive the importance of adjusting our personal expression. The way we think and feel is so aligned and coherent that when we make a gesture, take action or express any word in disalignment to them, we perceive there are other ways we need to seek and exercise to give coherence and power to what we transmit, specially when we are conscious about the importance of being the example of what we want to build up as society.
The most important rule of the game of life is: thought, feeling and expression must be aligned to a purpose, it’s up to us to decide to do it from our purpose of peace (click here to read about activating our purpose mode).
If we want to live a life of transparency, it’s necessary that we learn to construct it and teach people we realete to, through our example, the impact that comes along with choosing this path in an active and conscious way in our own experience.
Although it’s common to use our word as something worthless to get what we want (from controlling our environment ti satisfy others’ desires, things that seem to happen but we don’t really know the truth about it) it doesn’t mean that is approppriate to construct what we desire from our hearts (transparency, coherence, peace, safety and integrity). So, are we acting with the transparency we want to exist in our world? (click here to read the article about transmutation of the word corruption)
Since our present decisions are the ones which create our fate (click here to read the text about deciding by conviction), it’s moment of deciding the steps to take in order to construct the fate of peace we want from now on. Let’s see 3 steps to exercise and strengthen the habit of transparency:
- Assuming the responsability for our actions: it’s possible that at some point in our lives we’ve acted in a disrespectful and lying way in order to follow the model of getting what we want no matter how, so, for exercising transparency it’s essential to assume everything we have done at some moment and reflect about its utility to construct what we expect from the world. When we are responsible for our decisions, we have a wider perspective about what needs to be transformed in this moment. For example, if we are in a relationship because of the fear of being alone, but we no longer feel connected to the person, we can integrate our fear, by understanding and transforming it into courage to transmit to the other person the reality about the wy we feel, in an approppriate way, and transforming the relationship, through respect, into a friendship (click here to read the text We broke up, what now?)
- Better knowing people before envolving them in our lives: through emotions we enter relationships quickly without being conscious about the authenticity, coherence and affinity between people and us. Really knowing ouselves (click here to read the text about connecting ourselves to our hearts) we are sure about what is really necessary in our lives to construct with purpose (click here to read the text about not so necessary needs) and through athenticity we connect to people with defined purposes (click here to read the text about the purpose of relationships) communicating, in a respectful way, what we really feel.
- Perceiving our feelings, thoughts, words and actions: during the day different feelings and thoughts emerge, and we need to understand them to transform them and channel them into the construction of our transparency, thus, through our words and actions, we express them the most approppriate way according to our reality in the context of the place we’re in, with respect, coherence and integrity.
Exercising transparency is not about telling everyone about the way we feel or what we think about others, situations or what’s around us, but transforming our reactive expression into active, through the consciousness of expressing our truth in a respectful way when we communicate, thus, constructing a communication which purpose is constructing, from diversity, a society of integrity.
