Do you ever have problems falling asleep because of a feeling of anxiety and unease, a feeling that something you did or said that day wasn’t quite right?
This feeling of unease, or of needing to justify your feelings, words or actions to yourself or others, is an indication that some insincerity is present. This doesn’t necessarily mean you have been telling lies, but it signals you are not being true to who you really are.
When your motivations are aligned to the truth of your being, this unease and unhappiness falls away. You no longer need others’ approval for what you say and do.
Without sincerity you cannot progress even half a step towards your inner truth. But a sincere heart brings clarity and inner joy, and helps you persevere when circumstances are challenging.
