How can we maintain the mindset of being enough, of having enough, rather than suffering from a sense of scarcity, yearning, and grasping?

Integrating the Body and Mind by Cultivating Integrity!

Integrity is striving to bring together the fractured personality.

When cultivating the virtue of Integrity, think integration!  Examine your own behavior, thoughts, and speech.  Pay particular attention to any inconsistencies between what you say and what you actually do.  Note when your behavior is inconsistent with your beliefs.
 A person of integrity is living from a place of intention.  We often find ourselves reacting to situations out of habit or conditioning.  However, when we take the time to choose our thoughts, words and deeds carefully, we create a union between our bodies and minds.  We become whole.  We are trustworthy and honorable.
