We don’t need “Occupy Wall Street”, economic challenges, a Mayan calendar, or a banker having a Gestalt in the NY Times to call for moral honesty. Just ask yourself what do you stand for, at home, at work, in your relationships, and be TRUE.

Why I Am Leaving Goldman Sachs – NYTimes.com

Acknowledging the morally corrupt culture of banks which put their own profit before clients.

While not exactly prolific, nor remotely surprising realization to acknowledge the morally corrupt culture in banks that puts profit before clients they are supposed to serve, bravo to Mr. Smith, the banker who today is brave and honest enough to call it a day.

I note that a good friend in another sector sent this to me as indicative of her world.

Many have said that this year is a time for moral and spiritual awakening.

We don’t need “Occupy Wall Street”, economic challenges, a Mayan calendar, or a banker having a Gestalt in the NY Times to call for moral honesty. Just ask yourself what do you stand for, at home, at work, in your relationships, and be TRUE.

    I recently discovered a forgotten essay I’d written some years ago, about authenticity, fear, and the layers we’ve used for protection. We go into hiding, don’t we? From each other and from ourselves. We’ve considered it normal, call it the “public persona,” but these layers have become so thick that the secrets we hide are like fossils in the psyche.

    There are too many reminders that losing sight of our morality has created catastrophic results, on the micro and the macro level.

    I may have written about this so long ago that the pages crumpled like dried leaves, but the need is still the same, and like my friend here says, the choice is simple: let your truth see the light of day. Peel off the layers, hear the heart’s call, and let the mind follow its right path.
