OK, so what about honesty? What would it be for you, just among your friends to change the degree of honesty? What if you’re just honest all the time, with everyone that you know? People that you already know, and you weren’t too worried about being tactful, or diplomatic you just said whatever you thought, like a kid, like a child. What do you think it would do to your relationships? What would be different if you were radically honest?
There’s a story of a woman who interviewed for a job, and her potential boss asked her a question in the interview: What do you consider to be your worst fault? She said, “Honesty.”
He said, “I don’t think honesty’s a fault.”
And she said, “I don’t give a fuck what you think.”
I really like that joke. I think, would you hire her if you were the boss? I would. I would want someone that I could depend on not to cater to me. That I could rely on to handle things and be honest.
There is this problem about being honest, about what’s going through your mind, and the problem is that we have three minds. We have at least three minds, and we’ve been taught all of our lives that our mind is a very valuable thing, and that thinking is the most important thing. I don’t think that’s right. Our first mind is called the reactive mind and that’s basically we are a recording device, we’ve been recording multisensory recordings of what happens to us since we were in the womb.
