As near to Integrity, as I dare!

There can be no friendship without confidence; and no confidence, without integrity

Confessing to integrity, refers to the way members of this kind of relationship bear witness to their belief that one should live a life that is authentic, true to oneself, and then true to others. The centrifugal force which pushes them to adopt these tactics is their daring to reach out into the void for the hand of a lover/friend that is also daring.  For purposes to combat evil, the concept of integrity includes personal wholeness and consistency as well as honesty and fair dealings.

I was informed that I had written to many words and point was too convoluted.  Here it is – we each reserve the right to lie, but we also must take responsibility for this behavior.  What made the post so long was I wanted to anticipate some the questions and special cases that might arise.  In a phase – I was showing off.  Now that that’s over I feel better.

About Reputationist

When I started this blog in 2007 the following is what I was up to - things have changed - some. I'm what my handle states - an Oldude. The problem with this acknowledgment is my thinking and ambitions have not quite got the message of my "oldness". I've started an online Coaching practice and my rant is about how to improve long term happiness - For the World. My thing, I believe I can change the world - isn't that a hoot. The way I intend to change the world is to foster a wider and deeper appreciation for "mindfulness": The daring, flair and grace of Jayz; the political savvy of Cornel West; the creativity of Mos Def with the business and cultural daring of Richard Simmons. I've thought enough - being a philosopher of sorts - and trained hard with some of the sharpest minds ever on the planet - Cornel West and Michel Foucault to know the total absurdity of trying to change the world - but I do and I will. There it is showing my age again.
