Say – Do – Feel: My Personal Integrity Test

When what I say, what I do, and how I feel are all the same; I am congruent, integrous, real – and thus believable. In other words, if I have either a "YES" or a "NO" in all three, then I'm in integrity with myself and with everyone else.

Example: if I say "Yes" to an action, and don't do it; I'm out of integrity. If I say, "Yes", actually do what I said *begrudgingly* (which is a "NO" feeling), I'm out of integrity with myself – setting myself up for an easy resentment or, my personal fall-back favorite, a martyr's halo.

This has become my test of my personal integrity. Today I am living with the consequence of an unnoticed NO feeling beneath my Automatic Yes to leading 4 pro bono events in 2 week's time.

All of these events logically fell in my bailiwick. I didn't notice that I felt heavy/obligated to say YES. Since I didn't notice my "NO" feeling at the time, I didn't do a purpose generator to see if I could change the heaviness.

As it turns out, I have not lead 3 of the 4 events in the last two weeks, being down with a virulent coughing virus, which has precluded using my voice – for anything. Hmmmm. How I noticed it – I feel guilty for having so much time off. 

As a spiritual warrior (as are we all, whether we admit it or not), I missed the mark on this one. So I'm taking yet another run at my Automatic Yes, determined to stand in the middle of my Say – Do – Feel, make sure I am congruent in all facets before I say Yea or Nay.

PS  If any part of me is 'out,' it sometimes means I need either more information or more purpose for my action.

  1. Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  2. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Many thanks

  3. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
