Too often there is a disparity between our convictions and how we actually live. Do we believe we should be truthful but that it's OK to exaggerate or tell small lies? Albert Camus said that when we tell the truth we should never tell more than the truth. Do we believe in honesty; yet we are willing to bend things a little here and there to suit our convenience? When we decide to integrate our daily life around our highest and truest spiritual and ethical convictions, we discover that our life becomes much simpler and easier. The false divisions begin to fade away, and we live from a simple integrity and clarity without the need to second-guess ourselves. Mark Twain once said that it's always easier to tell the truth; then you don't have to worry about remembering what you said.
