"What is true for you is what you have observed yourself
And when you lose that you have lost everything.
What is personal integrity?
Personal integrity is knowing what you know-
What you know is what you know - and to have the courage
to know and say what you have observed.
And that is integrity
And there is no other integrity.
Of course we can talk about honor, truth, all these things,
These esoteric terms.
But I think they’d all be covered very well
If what we really observed was what we observed,
That we took care to observe what we were observing,
That we always observed to observe.
And not necessarily maintaining a skeptical attitude,
A critical attitude, or an open mind.
But certainly maintaining sufficient personal integrity
And suffient personal belief and confidence in self
And courage that we can observe what we observe
And say what we have observed."
R.H., The Rising Phoenix
Ethics and responsibility should be taught prior to acquiring significant knowledge - this would be normal in more advanced civilizations.

Integrity Processing Technique
This method assumes that the life unit basically holds a positive attitude towards life, but that its negative creations, once having functioned as solution for a problem, yet do not align with its self-determined ethics.
Recognition of past deviations or violations of one’s integrity enable the being to regain its own unadulterated power and beingness.
