Miss California: Harmony or Honesty?

Miss California supposedly lost out on the Miss USA title because she answered a controversial question with her personal truth. She was asked if she thought all states should legalize gay marriage, and responded, "I think marriage should be between a man and a woman ~ no offense to anybody."

Her response was honest and pulled no punches. She even clarified that her personal opinion was not meant as an affront. Yet some TV commentators ~ and Miss California herself ~ believe it cost her the crown.

We're living in tremendously arduous times, as the illusion of duality deliquesces at Light speed ~ and hitting a lot of speed bumps along the way. So what do you think? If you must choose between agreement and honesty, which way would you go? Bear in mind that the latter path is what has led to war for millennia ~ perhaps not so much because people speak their truth, as that they take exception to any who disagree with them: "My way or the highway."

Yet what's the true cost of false consensus? As I discuss on my CD of the transformational journey, What You Need to Know Now, your own vitality slowly drains away if you consistently cover up your essence, day after day after day. False harmony smolders beneath the surface and eventually breaks through as anger or even rage.

I'd love to get a dialogue going on this topic.

Hello lovely, loved this post, I heard the interview on a radio statio here and laughed because the girl sounded so hokey, yet I felt ok with what she said, it was her truth and that's what matters to me, truth, what you feel inside your heart even if it is in disagreeance with others and the populace. I am learning this only too well right now, we will talk about it on Saturday morning, more to come. Lx
