Finding honesty....

A call for honesty can only be but a lie. For honesty is but an individuals perception borne on their individual thoughts compounding into a truth known only unto them. So in all fairness I cannot give what is to be perceived to be anything other then a frank opinion. 6/12/05

It's been a year and along with that insight of honesty I asked for understanding of truth. As serendipity would have it I stumbled upon a word; verisimilitude. It means to have the appearance of truth. Much like our politicians do. Sad but ironicly true. I was also given the opportunity of opening my heart. I did and learned. And carry that pearl with the love it was presented to me. Here's the beginning of my understanding;

Wears truth like a mask
Does the truth become a lie
When details are omitted?
When does it turn 'white'?
When the omission is to 'save' the feelings of the other?
It all washes out in the end
And those honest, ommited truths known only to one seep in
Wrecking havoc
Understanding dawns
Integrity gets lost
Amongst the chaos in the emotional battlegrounds
That turned an imagined reality into dust
Creating a desert
Yet again.

How beautiful the desert does bloom. Though the seasons and dunes change the desert never does. It stands in it's integrity.

A little something on integrity. It means:

Steadfast adherence to a strict moral or ethical code.
The state of being unimpaired; soundness.
The quality or condition of being whole or undivided; completeness.

It is pure. There is no preconditioning, reconditioning, or euphamism to replace it. It is. As long as one can act from that intention they are strong.
