B-True Or Don’t-B W/Me – Gotta Have Integrity 2 B W/Me – 7 Days 7 Quotes On Integrity

You shall not follow a crowd to do evil; nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after many to pervert justice.” – God – Exodus 23:2 New King James Version (NKJV)

One of the qualities about myself for which I am proudest, is my integrity. I’ve worked hard on that.

  • I don’t lie.
  • I don’t steal.
  • I don’t deceive.

“Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.”- Anonymous

I have always adhered to these principles, and other high standards of living, simply because I was raised well by a devout Creole Catholic woman, my mother Eunice. I was raised well, by one of the most faithful.

As I got deeper into practicing metaphysics, I was even more focused on my integrity.

I saw ‘being true’ as making deposits into the Karmic Bank, my term. As I got older, I began to focus on all the virtues upon which I felt God admired.

God had pulled me out of dire situations, like pulling a bat out of hell. I have ever since felt obligated to please his will, and therefore had to always be honest, true, and genuine. It was a covenant, between me and God, to never be broken.

I see not striving to embody virtues such as Honesty, Faith, Patience, Steadfastness, Humility, Love, Courage, and Integrity, is to not seek God.

Now He is all I seek. As a response, I fortify my integrity daily, as it is a foundational building block to my legacy. Legacy is important. …wrote a post about it: When You Are Gone What Will You Be Remembered For? – What Will Be Your Legacy? – It Really Should Matter


I am sure you get tired of hearing people say what I’m about to say. “I know I’m a good person.”

But, I am a good person! You know how I know? Because I’ve been fucked over by many. I’ve been a bit of too honest, mixed with being stuck on stupid for a period, and got screwed. I just happened to have a lot of money then. That helped. And there were yet other times where my honesty set me up for the kill, even recently.

I know that I am a good person because for a few years, I was repeatedly deceived, feeling shameful, broken, abandoned, lost, depressed, and sick, but I still upheld my integrity. Circumstances never stole my best virtues from me.

In fact, those very circumstances made me even truer. I said to myself many times that I would never do unto others, as they have done to me.

Today, I thank God for my trials, and tormentors, for they have molded me into a new version of me, a better me, a faithful me.

“The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.” – Bob Marley


I believe that Integrity is the foundation of spiritual awakening. If I am not true to myself and to others, how could I ever be true to God? Remember, God is who today I strive to please. It would be a disgrace if, as a writer, I would propagate faith and spirituality that I did not believe in and practice regularly. Though I’d might be able to fool others with such deception, if that was the road I chose to take, I will never fool God.

That in itself would eat at my soul, to live with being dishonest with God. That will never happen!

“A liar needs a good memory.” – Quintillian

What I speak is Truth, in everything I speak. It is true simply because I say it is true. And, it is true, because I believe it is. I convey my truth and understand, while appreciating that it may not be everyone’s truth.

But it is someone else’s truth, therefore I share, and I share with integrity.

“We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters… that you don’t take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules… and success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square.” – Michelle Obama

In spite of the mistakes I’ve made in life, namely with casual drug use years ago, I’ve honored the 10 Commandments, nearly perfectly! This is why I cringe at the fake-faithful, blasphemers, and haters when they try to judge my life.

Amongst my collection of friends and family there are many failures of the 10 Commandments. It’s not a judgement, but it doesn’t give them the right to judge others either.

Me, I give myself a grade of A- or B+ on the 10 Commandments.

Most of the people surrounding me, when I experienced my toughest trials, would be graded a C, at best.

The pressures that I allowed them to place on my life led be to become a better student of God over time. …made me aim harder to please him.

They showed me who I was, by showing me who I was not.

In a way, my trials groomed me for God. On the several occasions, when I had no one else to run to, I aimed to please my one and only source, The Lord.

My gravitational attraction to God was organic. When I sought God’s help, I laid it all on the line, revealing all, being honest.

The journeys and related spiritual wisdom processes developed me into a man with uncanny integrity, but now, unlike in the past, one with wisdom and discernment.

I’ve developed my skills in selecting better people, places, and things with which to display my Integrity, like an unguarded polished jewel.

I calibrated my choices, but not my integrity.

I may be wrong and stand to be corrected through life experiences, but regardless of seeming to make myself vulnerable, I will forever be a faithful man of integrity. That will never change. I cannot be dishonest. I really can’t because it would place an unbearable pressure of guilt on my consciousness. I know it will.

I know this from being forced to be less than truthful in the IT industry as a consultant.

I did not really lie, but rather did as I was instructed. Whenever clients asked if the software that I represented could do ‘this or that’, I would give them the standard line of, “Yes, that can be done”. It was a true statement, but not fully honest, because ‘it could be done’, but I failed to mention that it would cost a lot of money and would take a lot of time, and headcount.

I was very successful in IT, but I felt a bit like a sellout, saying whatever was needed to get paid, to get well paid. Outside of the wear and tear that IT consulting placed on my body, and my call to serve as caregiver for my mother, I ultimately left the industry because I had to be true, and could no longer play the lying game.

Becoming more spiritually aware conflicted with my dictated consulting practices. The uneasiness sat on my mind like a weight, until I quit the business.

“Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.” – C. S. Lewis

Some people can easily and cleverly turn lying on and off. …Go on with ya bad selves!

Not me. No can do! I will not have God upset with me, in the latter years of my life. Bad enough, I may not have enough time to redeem myself from past errors, let along adding to the list.

These are the years where I am supposed to be gaining redemption, not adding new items to God’s ledger.


Let’s grade my 10 Commandments Test – This is just for fun. Grade yourself for fun.

I am so proud, as I said, that I maintained my honesty, truthfulness, and integrity. There are very few chapters in my life that I wish I could forget about. That’s because I remained honest. That negated most bad choices.

Maintaining integrity during trials set me on the perfect footing to blog, write, and enhance the legacy that I now write every day.

“You gotta do it with class and integrity. If not, you’re gonna drag yourself through the mud.” – Solomon Burke


POEM

In Defense of Love

By Kevy Michaels

I am now a bit weak

But not scared

Operating on what seems to be

The last of my fading strength

I dedicate my remaining years

To the Sacrificial Love

That my deeds represent

It’s been tough

Fighting hate and disregard

But I believe I’ve put in a dent

…Even piercing the armor of selfishness

I’ve encountered many Children of God

And I demonstrated for them

Real Truthfulness

Faith, Devotion, and unshakable Resilience

And for those who didn’t understand

I showed them

What Loving myself,

While loving others in need,

Really is

Though I’ve met many failures

In some hearts

The message pierced through

And after being led by my example

Some now share Agape Love too

The weariness of my spirit

Is dwarfed by the pride that I feel

It takes a real man

To stand up for God’s love

Through battlefields

…Still try to Heal

His Love is accessible to me

So faithfully

I’ll stand up for God

He placed fire in my heart

I acknowledge his presence,

And that

HE IS Real Love

I’m convinced that I’m cut out

For this assignment

Not overwhelmed

By the trials of journey

Long before I made this covenant

God warned me,

“My child, this mission will not be easy.”

I told HIM, “Ok, go ahead God, assign me.”

Too many people don’t truly understand what integrity is, so hopefully this video can shed some light on the topic of integrity.

    1. Isn’t is beautiful when you begin to figure parts of life out! Unfortunately, it doesn’t happy when younger.

      I am grateful for my trials and tormentors.

      They caused me to examine myself and find what required reshaping.

      Had it not been for those experiences, I may not have known those flaws in me that required correcting, and what required more accentuating.
