There’s a lot of talk these last few days about self-examination and behavior. Nothing wrong with that.
George Bernard Shaw said that a person’s real creed is that body of beliefs on which he habitually acts.
Self-examination involves a personal study of our actual behavior, as seen in our thoughts, words, and deeds, to see what beliefs our behavior does in fact express.
Every time I go through a period of self-examination I realize that some changes are needed if my beliefs are to align with my actions.
The goal being that my beliefs are manifest not only in my creedal expressions but also in my habitual actions.
