The posts are chapters from a book-in-process called Radical Integrity: Reflective Stories for Recovering Your Self. It’s a book of stories to help you discover, integrate and express more of who you genuinely are, including parts of yourself that are not yet familiar to you – and to do this radically, no stopping and no turning back, fully committed to following your own path in life, doing it ‘your way’.
Actually, life is always trying to move us in this direction of more fully being ourselves. ‘Radical Integrity’ is simply the process of cooperating with life, going where it is trying to take us.
This book is not about self-help or self-improvement. There is no advice, no program, no 7 Habits or 5 Principles. These actual stories (or clusters of little stories), taken from my life and the lives of those around me, are each intended to give a glimpse of another person – with their warts, missteps and learning edge – attempting to be fully human. You then get to respond to each story in your own unique way.
I’d welcome your comments on any of these chapters: just click on the “Leave a comment” link at the bottom of the chapter. You might even enjoy reading each other’s comments.
(Some chapters that I judged as being too long or otherwise not appropriate for the book are on a separate blog: radicalintegrity1.wordpress.com.)
