A TIMELY LOOK AT THE IMPORTANCE OF INTEGRITY
by Ronald J. Greer
Brick by brick, Ronald Greer lays the foundation for living with integrity in his book, If You Know Who You Are, You Will Know What To Do. He takes the question so often asked in our culture, ‘What am I to do?’, and underscores it with the ancient question, ‘who am I?’. Then he opens the doorway to discovering the answers to both, first by identifying who we are by our values, and our essential nature of being. He invites us each to look within to discover those values that are already rooted in ourselves. Then he walks us through examples of how these values determine decisions and directions that effect us in our lives. At the end of the book he presents some basic values that he holds and are common to us all and investigates them one by one. He wraps it all up with the theme and practice that is interwoven throughout the book, as we remember who we are, we know what to do. The whole book brings us home to realizing and remembering what already lives in us.
