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.
