Day 524 | Self-Honesty vs Morality

ART by ScottCook

Day 523 | Self Honesty and Reactions

What I found within my own process is that when I react negatively to another, even very slightly (with for example thoughts/ideas about another or criticizing something about them) I always found that I was doing within myself the exact same thing for which I had judged/criticized THEM
(maybe I was doing it in other situations and in a different way/expression, but the pattern was the same, even though I hated to admit/see it).
In the same way, whenever I reacted positively to another (for example in admiration) I always found that the point/aspect/quality I was looking at and admiring: was in fact a point/aspect/quality which I hadn't yet allowed myself to develop/embrace/express within and as myself.

So - in both cases (positive/negative) - I was separating myself from a certain point (eg. admiration, or eg. judgment) - until I realized that I can in fact look at: How does this point/expression/good thing or bad thing: exist within ME?

With both kinds of reactions (negative/positive) I was able to utilize my reactions to learn from them - because in essence: our reactions are showing us something about OURSELVES; they are defining who SELF is, they are not defining who another is.

Though, I also did have a phase in my process where I was 'trying' not to have reactions, lol, so in my mind I was trying to make it so as if "I am not having any reactions", lol, because I thought/believed that this would make me a 'better person' lol.
Or - I was trying very hard to look at things in a certain way within my mind, simply because it made me 'feel better'.
It's fascinating to what extent we'll go within our minds to not see things for what they are, lol, and to not be honest with ourselves about what we experience within ourselves, and about what we do with ourselves in our own minds.

So, what I'm concluding here is that we only trap ourselves in our minds if we go by 'right' and 'wrong', 'good' and 'bad'. There is no 'right' and 'wrong' here, it is about self-honesty (which, in itself is the most difficult 'thing' to grasp and to live by) - and each one walk their own path of realizing self honesty.
What I can say is: self-honesty is not something 'good' or 'beautiful'. Self honesty is the truth of ourselves.
And even the truth of ourselves can be changed, once seen/realized.
Who we are determines who we become.

To make it more simple, ask yourself the question, what is more real, as in: what reflects reality best -
self-honesty as the truth of ourselves in thought, word and deed,  OR morality as the 'good' vs. 'bad' ideas we hold in our minds oh so dear?

It's fascinating though because in our 'morality' we always have roles assigned to ourselves and roles assigned to others, in how we see others and how we see ourselves, and we're like trying so hard to fulfill the roles and be this person or be that person, and look I am like this because THEY are like that, so they must change, etc. - all of this, the never-ending inner chatter that keeps trying to 'prove' how we are 'right' and everyone else is wrong, all this comes from that point of 'morality', imagine that!

Obviously REAL morality would result in a world that is best for all, where we don't have to fear each other, where we don't have to fear for our children, where we can LIVE instead of surviving - so, obviously morality doesn't really exist in this world.
Investigate self-honesty, it's a journey, but it's inevitable. We cannot escape ourselves.
