Trustworthiness is based on ethical principles which include the principle of strong moral character (what we are as persons), and the principle of competence (what we are able to do as persons). You may have faith in the strong moral character of a person, but not in their competence as a leader. You may trust them as a friend, but you may not trust them to provide clear leadership. Alternatively, you may trust their intellectual and technical competence but lack confidence in their ethics and moral character. These are extremely important points of which to consider when making evaluations on ethical conduct and building trust between any person, group, organization, etc. We are not judging any person as good or bad, we are cultivating discernment and determining appropriate level of trust with a person, are they trustworthy as well as ethical? We can accurately assess this if we pay attention to patterns and understand the critical role trustworthiness plays in building trust to make the correct decision for ourselves. I have contemplated this model of ethical conduct and ethical behavior to make the foundation of strong moral character a necessity for group participation in a strong spiritual community, based upon the guiding principles of the Law of One.
Discernment of Behaviors
Discerning balanced behaviors as spiritually healthy behaviors are a maker of trustworthiness and solid and strong moral character. (see GSF Behavior)
Discerning unhealthy behaviors as spiritually abusive behaviors are a marker of untrustworthiness and weak moral character.(see Archontic Deception Behavior)
With this comprehension one can assess trustworthiness in a variety of circumstances, and consciously participate with the inner self to make concrete steps to change weak moral behavior and affirm to replace that behavior with spiritually healthy behavior, to increase inner peace and inner harmony.
Strong Spiritual House
When we cultivate our physical self and personality to be disciplined to build a strong moral character, we are building the physical foundation to be strong enough to house the higher attributes of Christ spirit. If our body and mind is morally weak, it is also physically and energetically weak. These physical and energetic weaknesses translate into low moral character in most humans who are not aware of the Archontic Deception promoted as a value system. Since many humans are not taught to develop strong moral character, the mind and body are increasingly weakened when we are easily made consensual to low morals and low ethical standards. Many people cannot tell the difference between high ethical standard and low ethical standard as they are mind controlled through religion, gurus or other control mechanisms.
We are so desensitized to what has become the norm, that we must put focus on the study of strong moral character, ethical conduct and demonstrating an exercise of these higher human traits in our day to day.
A strong moral character is the physical ballast which is directly related to the capacity of embodying the personal virtue (frequency) created by the Spirits of Christ. So we could think of the physical body as the practical reality of grounding into our being a strong moral character in our actions every day, while the spiritual-energetic body expands relative to one’s ethical conduct. Together, this focused mind-body partnership attracts the higher virtues (spiritual gifts) of the Spirits of Christ. This is the key to embodying the Spirit of Christos while in a physical body.

Trustworthy behavior is modeled in the ethical conduct we observe in people with strong moral character. Strong moral character in partnership with placing value on the ongoing spiritual development of krystic attributes manifest emotionally stable, consistent, balanced, loving, compassionate and peaceful people. When our community places value on these moral characteristics as an inspired goal for self-improvement - this creates an invincible strength when the group is unified within community consciousness.
This is the exact reason this community is tested continually to strengthen itself through its individual members by determining what they truly place value upon. If together we place our dedication to the strengthening of our group moral character in partnership with the Spirits of Christ, it is very hard to interfere with our influence on the earth. This is our highest expression and inspiration here and is the trusted value system of the Law of One.
To break strong moral character from building in our group, to break apart trust and confuse issues of trustworthiness, a person(s) of low moral character will reveal itself and create dissent. A low moral character that practices unethical behavior cannot embody the Christ spirit. It can only replicate what it can memorialize as the impostor.
It is important to witness this neutrally and understand why it is occurring, as it is a valuable lesson for all. This is not to create bias or withdraw one’s love and compassion towards observing people that exhibit untrustworthy behaviors through weak moral character.
This is to make improved choices about where one chooses to place trust with others and how to build strong moral character and thus, build trustworthy attributes in the self.
