Be wise! Be Honest!

"Honesty is the first chapter of the book of wisdom." - Thomas Jefferson.
If we are to harness the fullness of wisdom, then it behooves us to be honest with ourselves, our neighbors, and with God. Dishonesty does not change the basic truth and facts of life. It only attempts to mask it. It, seemingly, postpones the evil day, making it more potent and devastating. For, that which is masked, or postponed, only grows in venom and intensity. It comes to bite when we least expect it.

The right approach to life is to face the truth and be done with it. The person you see in the mirror is what you have today. You can make him/her better, but what you see is the starting point. What you have in your account is your present reality. It does not have to be your end result, but where you are today. Unless you face your reality, you cannot devise the right response/strategy to get better. Without a starting point, there cannot be an end game.
