Want more integrity in your life?

… here are several excerpts on integrity from “The Nude Ethicist: A Simple Path to The Good Life.”™

A Rising Moon Press Publication.


Prologue p. 5
While our intelligence, instincts, intuition, senses and values may vary, we all start out possessing the same four core ethical values of honesty, fairness, respect and integrity. However, while we may stand on common ground to start, it’s what we choose to do with those values that determines our standard of conduct and the path we follow.

Chapter Three, The Fab Four p. 42
Integrity is the standard of behavior by which everything else is compared and measured. I mean, consider the word “good.” What does that really mean?

In order to answer questions like “what’s the state of your integrity” or “what’s it made of,” let’s state it more simply. Do you act from an impulse to be a “good” person with your chief goal being to show off to others how ethical you are? Does it shift, according to convenience, comfort or cost? Is it negotiable based on reward or punishment? Does your standard of conduct exist in inverse proportion to your use of or need for power? For example, the more power you have, the less integrity is present.

On The Inner Bottom Line, integrity is a fluid reflection of the levels of honesty, respect and fairness exercised in any choice and action.
