Right Is Right

Your Mom called. She just wanted to remind you:


Oh, and also, that ethics and honesty are REALLY important.

  1. I was thinking of this yesterday. Sometimes – with no exaggeration – you are the only one to face
    the disturbing truth and responsibly express it.

    The question is: when the only “truth” theyΒ΄ve known is their lies, how can you ever expect
    them to see Truth as truth…?




    • Very interesting. Aren’t everyone’s truth’s true though? How many truths do you have that aren’t true …to YOU? One of the questions that I ask in my seminars is “Raise your hand if you have beliefs that you hold to be 100% true …that aren’t true.” I get the strangest looks. And then I quickly add, okay how about this, “How many of you know OTHER PEOPLE who have beliefs that THEY hold to be 100% true …that you know aren’t true?” Almost immediately, the hands fly up and the laughter begins.

      I have found that truth, to each of us, is the result of many factors, not the least of which is where, how, and by whom we were raised. Cold hard facts, on the other hand, are a different matter.

      Thanks, Julien. Be well. ~Paul

    My mother used to say, “If all your friends jumped off the High Level Bridge (insert your closest bridge with any drop), would you. Apparently, yes was not the right answer. We need to listen to the wisdom closest to us. As we grow up, it is from our elders, but eventually we become the elders. Then what?
