No, I don't know of any special ways or principles to employ to arrive at a state of total self honesty. The only principle would be rooted in desire itself: the desire to be totally self honest. If that desire is one hundred percent, and employed at all times, then the result can only be total self honesty. If there are delusions in place the Soul will know it cause of how that delusion actually 'feels' within: it just won't sit right no matter how delusional the delusion actually is. If it does not feel right, sit right, then it's just a matter of keep going, like digging a well for water, until the actual truth is realized about whatever one is in every facet of it's total being.
Thank you Rad. I will work on that awareness
: "...it just won't sit right
no matter how delusional the delusion actually is. If it does not feel right
, sit right
