“…return to the source –

to your true self by stripping away the beliefs that no longer serve you.”

Earlier I asked you what the alternative was to the ‘how to’ addiction. And the answer, as far as I can tell at least, is to return to the source – to your true self by stripping away the beliefs that no longer serve you. Integrity as defined here is a crucially important factor for improving all performance, because the more alignment we have between who we already know to be and who we are actually being, the more we drop the pretense, we abate our fears and we live as nature intended. So, do please take the time to get quiet and meditate or reflect on these questions and if you’re curious to take a deeper dive into what you uncover please feel free to drop me a message at There are some further resources that I will freely share with anyone who requests them and, if there’s sufficient demand for it I may even write a future piece on integrity to develop this thread further.

But for now I’d like to leave you with this quote from Adyashanti:

‘Make no mistake about it – enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretense. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.’
