“The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts.

Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day.

The content of your character is your choice.

Day by day, what you do is who you become.

Your integrity is your destiny — it is the light that guides your way.”

I love this quote by Greek philosopher Heraclitus (c. 535 – c. 475 BC).

In fact, it was the inspiration for our artwork on the theme of Integrity this year.

It’s the idea that every day, we are further defining who we are.

More than our words, more than our past, more than the stereotypes — our actions, today and every day, are what’s sculpting the masterpiece of our lives.

Tomorrow is a new day.

Who will you become?

Our Integrity Kit featuring art with this quote was sent to all members this October. In it, we share more from this great thinker as well as exercises to help you reflect on the role of integrity in your life.

Our Themes

Distilled from our Manifesto, positive psychology, the science of mindfulness, and ancient philosophic studies we have identified twelve themes core to living both fully and mindfully. We mapped these twelve themes to each of the twelve months in a year. Together with our community we explore one each month.
