Meditation on the truth

Honesty that is truly indispensable is self-honesty, which is neither easy nor simple to achieve. Sometimes, we created a storm of self-deception and rationalization, a whirlwind of lies in which the small, quiet voice of self-honesty could not be heard. To become honest with ourselves, we first must stop lying to ourselves. We must become quiet. Then, in the resulting stillness, we must listen for truth. When we become silent, self-honesty will be there for us to find. I will be quiet and still, listening for the voice of truth within myself. I will honor the truth I find.
