Honesty is Best The Energy of Honesty

Dear readers,

Dishonesty redirects a portion of our energy against the
flow, which requires extra effort and drains us.

As children most of us learn that honesty is better than
dishonesty, and we may not question this beyond whether or
not to do what we’re told. As adults, however, we can go
deeper to examine our choices as investments of energy with
predictable risks and returns. When we speak the truth, we
affirm what already is. This is like using a paddle when
the stream is already moving the same direction. We are
already supported by the universe and its energy flow, so
we don’t need to exert much energy, leaving more for other
pursuits. But dishonesty redirects a portion of our energy
against the flow, which requires extra effort. In addition,
it creates an alternate reality that requires further
energetic input to be maintained. So we can easily see that
we are best served when we work with the flow of the

Life is not always clearly defined, so we may find it useful
to follow our choices to their logical conclusions. We may
feel that little untruths are harmless, but they can be like
small cracks that weaken an overall structure over time.
Even giving someone a compliment or trying to protect them
can create problems later when the alternate reality we’ve
created becomes the basis for further actions. Even if the
actions that follow are honestly done, the underlying
unstable foundation of dishonesty will threaten to topple
things eventually. This can lead to further energy being
spent on keeping things hidden, working to remember the
tales we’ve spun and fearing the consequences of being found
out. Life doesn’t need to be this draining, but we can make
the choice to free ourselves from the bonds of dishonesty at
any time.

Speaking and living our truth may involve risking, among
other things, the possibility of rejection. But when we
allow ourselves to follow the flow of life, we are supported.
We can then use our energy to cultivate physical, emotional,
and spiritual well-being and to create our dreams, rather
than leaving ourselves too drained to even maintain our
existence. Today we can make honesty our choice in every
interaction, bringing the nurturing power of the universe’s
energy into our lives to bring positive, lasting results.
