Being Real – The Highest Moral Conduct

¨The theme of the day is Sīla which means virtue, morality, or proper conduct. To start out the day, I want to emphasize that the kind of morality we’re talking about is not the fake kind….

 

…where the focus is on right and wrong, or what it all looks like to the neighbors. It’s about being real and raw and keeping close to yourself. It’s about saying what you mean and meaning what you say. It’s about not saying one thing and doing another….

 

One of the best books that I can think of on this subject is Pema Chödron’s

¨Coming Closer to Ourselves¨. The only measuring stick for how you’re doing is the one you hold up against yourself. ¨
