Integrity is liberation.

To live a life of integrity is not easy. Yet, getting into alignment with integrity is not that complex, it’s just scary and often stirs some pots.

It requires courage.

It requires bravery.

It requires the willingness to die a small death of every and any cell that needs to be liked by others, so we can fully love ourselves.

Let it be a good death.

One of honor and reverence for the younger parts of ourselves that learned to put other people’s feelings ahead of our own above anything and everything.

The part of us that wanted to just. Be. Enough.

The part that wanted to be loved and have a membership to a group or family even at the cost of our own values.

Sometimes we have to do that to survive. And, sometimes our fears keep us in patterns that are harming us.

But the truth is that, it takes time, space and often deep pain to wake up to the fact that we have adopted values that aren’t our own. We observe hypocrisy and then we become it. Until we don’t. Until the call of our true values and soul says, “NO MORE. WE ARE HURTING.”

I don’t think we realize that if we committed to breaking those patterns, to stopping the things that don’t align and started living and loving from a place that does align, the path to liberation will unfold and all the things you’ve always dreamt of being and feeling will meet you there.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
