“The highest compact we can make with our fellow is – “Let there be truth between us two for evermore.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Truth between us two forevermore. What a beautiful thought! This should be the foundation of every relationship, every friendship, every internal conversation.
What a gem of a thought! Shall we make it so?
One thought on “The Highest Compact”
As I reread your post I noticed “of every internal conversation.” That struck me in that it is vital to ground our internal conversations of our own thoughts in that which is true. Living in the world as it is there is a swirl of thought that if those that are false are not recognized as such when they land within us our internal conversations will be divisive and fragmenting. I see more how important it is to continually take heed to recognize my internal conversations in such a way that truth provides a grounding making for an integrative and constructive experience.
