In this brief answer to a viewer's question, Guy explains that honesty begins with seeing ourselves as we are, and that lying to ourselves is what leads to unkindness.
In this short video, Guy talks about how, when it comes to our relationships, the opportunity to do the right thing always exists, even when something tells us that it is too late.
Whenever painful events happen, they tend to fall on only one of two sides of a person. The first side is the denial side. When turning this way, refusal rules.

Classroom Talk: 7/14/2021 - Whoever lies... cries; and not just in that moment, but in every moment thereafter; as when, by fear, we feel compelled not just to defend some past self-compromising choice... but also because we continue to participate in an unconscious act that's not only set against our own best interests... but, ultimately, against the Good of all.
