Is it recommended to invest in transparency? Is personal transparency beneficial to the stability of one’s life and relationship with others?
It seems like transparency is the bullet that can boomerang and hit you…I am referencing witch trials and similar scenarios. Back then and now, all different in intensity.
In my mind it is good to be transparent because it gives others the courage to be transparent themselves, and if we were all transparent we could get to the bottom of issues and conflicts so much quicker with a lot less of the drama and confusion.
The way I understand it is that transparency is a raw currency exchange. It’s always a risk. You’re always taking a chance and this would correlate to the archetype of Scorpio which is knowing who to trust and who not for honoring your transparency and treating it for the rare gift that it is these days, but at times finding it the precursor to rejection. There is always the contingency of what we call Supreme Giving, which is not rejection at all.
For me it feels fake when I represent myself one way to some and another to others. I am always reflecting on my capacity for hypocrisy and that is the thing I get after almost anything else when I detect it.
Is transparency safe? In the real world? The here and now?
