Honesty Is Our Natural Choice
Honesty is a natural choice, its natural to be honest. We love to be honest and praise those who love honesty. Even today nothing has changed when it comes to natural human choice, we try to suppress this natural inclination by giving a number of justification to our own self and to those who ask us why?
Today when nature is distancing itself from us, we have a number of issues with nature such as global warming, protection from Sunshine (we have teared the Natural Protecting System called Ozone), endangered species, pollution in air, water and food. Along with these we have also polluted or natural thinking process, we no more believe in nature the way we used to, today we love (or pretend to love) artificial, processed, covered things, whether its new, views, water, food or even air.
We can’t drink untreated water as we fear pollutants, so is the case with other things including honesty. Today we feel that to be honest is like standing barely under the sunshine, we feel that its dangerous and may not be good for us. We don’t think that honesty is a natural tendency, a natural choice, we think its foolish, its childish to be honest in today’s world.
No Honesty No Peace of Mind
We can’t think of a peaceful life, if we can’t appreciate honesty in everyday life. Our natural inclination towards honesty can’t tolerate dishonesty our own system starts malfunctioning if we are dishonest.
If we want peace then we must take this seriously, if we want health then we must think about effects of this aspect of life on our body and mind, we want happiness in life then we must try this rule of nature.
Even if we have several reasons to satisfy our own logic we cannot trick the nature, our own human nature, nature of our body system, philosophy of our own mind and thinking. Logic is better suited for machines then men.
If we are dishonest in some of our dealing then its effect can be seen in a number of things that happen in our life, it can be mood swing, irritation or failures.
Honesty Is The Best Policy
Overall honesty is in fact the best policy which can be adopted in life. It is one of the easiest and most convenient option to choose. Its better to be honest and face the truth then to be dishonest. Covering up things, requires preparing mind for a number of situations, inviting a number of problems and at last confessing(at least to our own self, if we are lucky enough to understand the root cause) after a long period of unrest.

Honesty is a lifestyle of a winner, someone who is not afraid of truth and its consequences. He/she is not honest because its the best policy or because he is aware of its benefits but because its honesty, a single path which is the right path.
A person who is really honest always enjoys happiness, peace of mind, tranquility as he has nothing to process in his/her mind, there is nothing that can get uncovered. Whatever is there is there because it has to be there. He has neither added nor subtracted anything anywhere. This is a simple test (as per my knowledge/information/experience) which I feel can be used to reposition our own strategy on honesty.
