although there is no single definition, in congruence we observe a healthy human being, who thinks – says – feels – does basically the same thing, making his or her life an example of what he or she comes to tell,

It is therefore interesting to look outside and look for those people who are references of congruence, who may also be closer to our way of being in the world,

The important thing is that you yourself develop in your life this congruent thinking – saying – feeling – doing, which is the basis of health, of mental and emotional health, a health that surely will also be transferred to your physical body.

Pepe Múgica,

the poor president of Uruguay lives by example, and we feel his life as an example of his way of seeing the world (from his particular framework of beliefs and values).

Che Guevara,

revolutionary character who gives us many phrases, which become posters, I prefer to die standing up than to live kneeling down, that is how he told us and that is how he died.

If we extend the term of the word to other related words, we find coherence, or honesty, that consistency between what is said and what is done, who knows why, turning the word towards honesty, the little sister of congruence (congruence in what is said), other images emerge,

of characters who tell us what they are going to do / tell us what they have done / don’t deceive us / go face to face,

and the journey approaches Gandhi’s salt march, with the radical proposal of ahimsa,

towards truth seekers, people committed to truth,

like Tessa Quayle (activist in the faithful gardener),

Julian Assange (wikileaks),

or Daniel Ellsberg (the Pentagon papers)

and we end with a sentence,

when I paint, my obsession is to show what I have found, not what I am looking for – Pablo Picasso
