Okay. This is part two for whatever day it is. Thursday. So what I said in the previous segment is that until you can tell the difference between what you say and what the machine says, there’s no chance that you can change your context. Now, it’s a little bit deeper than that. Because … and that’s why without integrity nothing works. It’s an integrity issue. Now, we consider integrity in a very pedestrian way. You don’t cheat, you don’t lie, you keep the Ten Commandments and all that morality issue. But, that is not what integrity really is.
Integrity is that, but it is just the bottom of integrity. The real integrity has something to do with word. So the Bible starts with God created light. That was the first step of creation. Or, I don’t know. First there was the word, I think it says. That’s the first line of the Bible and I am not a Bible scholar. I am not a Bible reading person, so forgive me if I am a little sloppy here. So first, there was the word. And then, with the word, God created the light. It wasn’t a visible light, it was all the light. Everything is light. If you consider light a wave, then God created wave. And if you consider light photons, i.e., particles, then God created particles. God created the light.
Now, what does it have to do with integrity? You are no God; right? Well, if you really look, you pretend that you are God. You say things like, oh, I am a spiritual being having a human experience. Yeah, maybe. The most important thing is that this leg of evolution where you acquire the main and fundamental capacity of Godness, if there’s such a thing, Godness, or if it’s a word, Godness, then what you need to do is have a strong relationship to your word. A strong relationship between your self and your word. So the wording that Landmark gives it: integrity is honoring your word as your self. Not yourself but your Self. Which means what you’re creating with your word all the time, all the time, all the time, all the time, and all the time is your Self. Because who is going to play the role in the world? Who is going to decide what’s the context? Who is going to decide what is important and what isn’t? Who is going to decide what to do is your Self. Now, you either have a self or you don’t. Most of you don’t.
You either have a capacity to create self or you don’t. About 40 percent of humanity is born without the capacity to create self. So that much of abot equality. We are not created equal. We are not. Some of you were not created with the capacity. Why? I don’t know. But expect … I read somewhere yesterday, I should have copied it, that expecting that different people at different places of the earth would follow the exact path that was described or that created the modern human is a little bit delusional unless it was really 100 percent in our DNA from the get go, which kind of indicates creation; right? The people who are born this place and that place, are not going to be the same. They
