Today’s Intention: Today I intend to be mindful of each ‘present moment’, continuing to consciously work towards the undoing of my Ego, through focused mind training effort.

I have spent much of my life trapped in a thought form of the past or the future. I respect my ability to not stay present. Like shadow work, I choose not to deny any part of me, including those Egoic tactics which do not serve my relative healthiness.

To assist me with today’s intention, starting now, I will receive a Mindful Bell every 15 minutes, for the next four hours, courtesy of my Insight Meditation Time application on my iPhone. I will be still, and check-in internally to see what emotions and thoughts in that moment I am present to. 




 
Full Definition of Integrity (Merriam-Webster)
1:  firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values :  incorruptibility
2:  an unimpaired condition :  soundness
3:  the quality or state of being complete or undivided : completeness
The above is a helpful reminder to me, as I desire to live fully with integrity of Mind, always. If I catch myself not living fully in my Integrity, without Self Judgement, my intention is to pause, notice where I am out of sync, make the correction, and continue in Integrity.

Additional present moment awareness suggests that when I see others not exemplifying Integrity, I have choice to Know that the potential exists am projecting my own fears of Integrity on that which is external of me.  

This afternoon I strongly desire to live in Integrity always, with no stipulation or condition of who anyone else is living, void of my projections and judgments.

The photo to the left is a tattoo, representing the Seven Virtues of Bushido.  Bushido, means, "the Way of the Warrior". I connect to these virtues and look at Bushido as an example path, or "Way" of a "Spiritual Warrior". One of the seven Virtues is "Gi", which means "Right Action, Duty, Integrity".

"Today I humbly ask to be supported and guided to live an integrous life, regardless of how others, as I judge, project, or discern, appear to be living their life. Complete non attachment."
