If the truth hurts than honesty must heal. Honesty means living without having to look over your shoulder. There are no strings attached to anything you say when you speak honestly. Honesty means doing the right thing for no other reason than you know it is right.
Honesty is the innocent speech of a child. It is the wise answer of an elder. Honesty is the whistle of the wind, or the falling of the snow. It is natural to be honest, it is when we stray from the natural that we bring suffering into our lives.
Honesty is freedom.
