Integrity is unity of the personality; it implies being brutally honest with ourselves about our intentionality. Since intentionality is inextricably bound up with the daimonic, this is never an easy, nor always pleasant pursuit. But being willing to admit our daimonic tendencies – to know them consciously and to wisely oversee them – brings with it the invaluable blessing of freedom, vigor, inner strength, and self-acceptance.
