Be Honest

Mikao Usui’s fourth precept, Be honest in your dealings with other people sounds quite simple. Most of us are honest in our dealing with others aren’t we?

It really depends on how you think about honesty. While not many of us would steal or lie or cheat intentionally, think about how many times we say nothing because we don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings or cause an argument. Think about the times when we agree to do something because we find it difficult to say no, or the times when we turn down an offer of help because we don’t like to be a bother to anyone.

Is that really being honest?
