Although most of us know that becoming more honest brings many benefits, it is still difficult to achieve and it may be painful at first. The good news is that even a small improvement benefits our quality of life immediately. We are all human, and thus fallible. It is unrealistic to aspire to being honest all the time. A more sensible aim is trying to be as honest as you can right now in your present circumstances. And remember, your reality is what you are now, not what you were then. To paraphrase Maya Angelou, "When you know better, you do better."

Some of you have been following my line of thought on the future. There is an interesting article in today's (May 22) New York Times entitled "No One Knows What's Going To Happen" that may be of interest.

Honesty is a vital survival skill. It enables us to distinguish truth from bullshit, which is the essence of intelligence. Let us respect and nurture our honesty, thus becoming more conscious and alive. 'It is not necessary to seek truth, only cease to cherish opinions.'-Hsin Hsin Ming.
