They are our relationships in which worries subside over being taken advantage of, or of needing to control.
They are our relationships where both parties act with confidence and ease.
They are our relationships in which games are not played, and expectations and needs are communicated clearly.
These are our relationships of integrity. They are our connections where we express and share without reservation.
We have examples of this kind of relationship everywhere we go. You participate in them at the restaurant you love to eat at, or the public transportation you trust to get you from A to B.
Our economy would not function without these relationships. There would be no buying or selling without them. If we look hard enough we can see that our relationships of integrity are the base of our modern economy.
There are so many people all around the world doing the right thing day after day so everyone can benefit. They are you, and they are me. We are the invisible glue that holds our economy, and our world, together.
