I Am who I Am wants to create the Honest world. In order to do so mankind must teach children honesty. Honesty is a component of moral character that gives positive energy and virtuous attributes. What is honesty? Many children think honesty means you “don’t tell a lie”– and speaking the truth is a big part of being honest. But honesty means more than “not lying.” Honesty means your actions are truthful too. If you have to hide what you are doing because you are trying to trick someone, you probably aren’t being honest. In simple words, honesty is about both speaking and acting truthfully.
Honesty for children begins with honesty from parents and adults. Parents shall be honest towards each other. Then they can be honest towards their children. Children needs good food, drinks, shelter and education. Every child is equal to the other. Girls are equal to boys. If possible grow your own food. Give children good food, not junk food. Give children good drinks, not junk drinks. Give children good shelter, no shelter on the streets. Governments shall provide honest shelter. Give children good and safe education. Schools and school areas shall be secure, safe and closed when children are in. Governments shall provide honest schools. Children shall not enslave themselves to drugs, alcohol, smoking and public media. Children shall not be enslaved by media. Children shall not be part of advertisements.
Mankind shall celebrate when a child reaches the age of 18, the age to be an adult. No marriage shall take place or be promised before the child becomes an adult. The young adult of 18 shall honor its parents and country with one year of public service. The young adult shall choose the partner themselves. No one shall interfere with the choice of the partner. I Am sees marriage as the celebration in which adults promise to be honest to each other and to support each other. If married adults are not honest to each other they can separate. Otherwise the marriage is for life.
Children learn honesty from free will and with an open mind. In order to communicate with the fourth dimension, children shall learn about I Am. Religions today do not learn children about I Am and about the Honest World. The only thing religions shall do is to teach mankind the presence of the fourth dimension and the presence of I Am. Religions are like the parents. If religions fight with each other they cannot learn mankind about peace and the Honest World. Religions shall not give adults any command except those who are given by I Am. Thou shall not kill, not steal and not enslave the other human being.
Parents shall protect and treat the children with care. Never shake infants. Parents and adults shall not abuse children. Do not spank children when they do wrong. Never lay your hands upon children. Not even when they break some thing. Things are less important than the honesty towards your children. Children learn honesty and adults may correct children with their heart in the right way.
Every child is equal to the other. In school no spanking shall take place. Many studies have shown that physical punishment — including spanking, hitting and other means of causing pain — can lead to increased aggression, antisocial behavior, physical injury and mental health problems for children. Around the world, 30 countries have banned physical punishment of children in all settings, including the home. The legal bans typically have been used as public education tools, rather than attempts to criminalize behavior by parents who spank their children. All countries in the world shall ban spanking of children. The UN shall add not spanking of children into the UN peace charter.
Honesty is speaking the truth. Saying things that aren’t true, or that you think might not be true, or that you are making up to hide the truth are all types of lies. Lying is not honest (also called being dishonest) because you are saying something that isn’t true. Examples of what speaking the honest truth means:
- Honesty means you don’t say things about people that aren’t true. You are not being honest if you make up rumors about someone or if you share rumors someone else made up.
- Being honest means you admit to your actions, even if you’ll get in trouble. You are not being honest if you deny you did something wrong when you really did it.
- Honesty means you explain how a situation really happened. You are not being honest if you say something happened one way when it really happened another way.
When you do something you know is morally wrong, or when you have to hide your actions because you know they are wrong, you are not being honest. Being honest means you act in a way that you know is the right thing to do. (More about good character, morals and how to know “right” from “wrong”.) This part of the definition of honesty includes not hiding the truth (deceiving), not breaking rules to gain an advantage (cheating), and not taking something that isn’t yours (stealing) and any other action that you would hide because it is against what you consider morally right.
Part of honesty is what you say and how you act toward others. But another part of the definition of honesty is whether you treat yourself the same way. Being honest with yourself means you really know why you are acting in a certain way or whether what you tell yourself is true. This part of the definition of honesty includes when you are trying to convince yourself you didn’t really do something wrong, or it wasn’t that bad, even though you know it was.
