Once one has achieved the virtue of faith, they have chosen what matters in their life, honesty comes next. To what extent is a person true to themselves?
Honesty, does not depend solely on what a person says. In A Course In Miracles, it is taught that honesty actually means consistency. “There is nothing you say that contradicts what you think or do; no thought opposes any other thought; no act belies your word; no word lacks agreement with another.” M.4.11:4-6 Does a person say what they do and do what they say?
Corollary ideas to honesty are genuineness, sincerity, authenticity. Deep honesty requires that a person knows themselves. Being honest with oneself is one of the greatest blessings of life. If nothing else, an honest person sleeps well.
