What does it mean to live in integrity, love, and right action?
Integrity is alignment. When you are in integrity, you are in the Silent Watcher, because you are observing your human experience and living that experience in the present moment. You are holding this expanded state of consciousness of observation and being in your truth in your integrity.
From integrity comes love. Love, true love, is a frequency of vibration, and there are billions of states of love.
Your unique vibration is a love that is needed by everyone around you. And their love is another kind of love that you need. So, in this way we connect to create the whole.
And then there’s right action. You can think something, you can feel something, but then you have to take action.
When you take action from your core virtue–the Silent Watcher–and are in the present moment, that action is called right action.
It is hitting the mark. It is shooting the arrow and hitting the bullseye. It’s being able to create and manifest the life that you dream about. It is how we connect spiritually and how we lead a fulfilled, purposeful life.
Integrity, love, right action.
I want to share with you an example from my life of how the keys work.
Silent Watcher, core value, the present moment, integrity, love and right action.
I was supposed to be at a meeting at five in the morning and then catch a plane right afterward. At a quarter till 5 they canceled the meeting. I was upset because I had to get up so early—which is my normal reaction. My ego was whining, “Oh, life didn’t go my way.” So, I was driving to the airport with my husband and said, “I’m feeling grumpy. I’m tired. Life didn’t go my way and I had to start way too early this morning. Let’s just use the keys!”
So we both activated the Silent Watcher, and I started observing my feelings. I’m feeling grumpy. I’m angry and tired. I’m hungry because I haven’t eaten. I merely observed with no judgment whatsoever. Just, “Oh, there I go!” Then I activated my core value, which is to love no matter what. I immediately started loving the anger, the resentment, the hunger. And those feelings just vanished. It was magic!
We got to the airport, and again I practiced loving no matter what. Now, because I was in my integrity, my true self, love just started to blossom. I started to feel this profound love for everyone and everything around me. Then I went into action.
I heard a voice that said, “Put your hand out to everyone you meet. Say ‘Hello!’ and see that they’re a long-lost friend.” I started doing that, and everybody started lighting up, and I started feeling all this love coming back to me. People were saying, “How are you?” and starting conversations, even the security guards and the people at TSA.
And then something happened that was really miraculous.
I stopped putting my hand out. I stopped going up to people, and everybody started coming up to me! People I didn’t know were saying things like, “I like your dress. Those are great shoes. How are you?” Everybody started “seeing” me because we were all now in the present moment together.
It was so simple and so easy, and truthfully, it blew the socks off my husband and me. We said, “Wow! This is magic. These are powerful keys. If we could all do this, think of the world we could create together.”
Indeed. Just think of the world we could create together.
