I have always been a sap for sincerity and integrity-- I think because they were so absent in my early experience, I sought it out like it was the Philosopher's Stone. Turns out, it is. Sincerity and integrity, I mean. People use sincerity and integrity, across the planet, throughout the universe, as a front to position them to harvest all they can bear of the Big Three Gotta Haves and Can't Get Enough Ofs of humankind: Money, Sex and Drugs. The world (universe) lives on, by and for Money, Sex and Drugs. Money is turned into Sex and Drugs. Sex and Drugs are turned into Money. And it all hides behind a charade, a facade, a front of sincerity and integrity. To the point where I am certain that only .5% of the human population at any point in the history of the species have ever actually experienced sincerity and integrity in their life, and only .001% of those people have actually consistently exhibited sincerity and integrity in their daily walk. It's all a show. For Money, Sex and Drugs. Think of the stereotypical used car salesman. Apply that in a much more polished and refined form to everybody else you know, and you get a sense of what I'm talking about. So, I still seek it in everyone I meet, but I don't fall for it as easily as I once did. And, as far as my own incarnation of sincerity and integrity goes, I'll say I'm really good at faking it, but the closest I come to truly being the actual thing is when I say I am not fully sincere or completely who I appear to be. But, I won't take you to the cleaners.
