Integrity is inherent in our very Being, and is beyond personal or collective beliefs and values. In this deeper perspective, it is impossible to not be in integrity, but whenever language is used, it exists in the duality of having vs. not having. I believe the challenge arises when navigating life in a world of choices, of good and bad, better or worse. In my own experience, it is very difficult to strictly adhere to any idea of how things “should” be. Reality is much gray-er than my mind thinks it to be, and sometimes a compromise leads to less suffering. Indeed my ideals often can be an obstacle to the right action of the moment. Attachment to the ideas of “what I think is right” seems to me to be a path towards suffering, yet acknowledging what is True seems to also be necessary for embodying the deeper integrity mentioned above.
