“This above all: to thine own self be true.”
The topic this week is “authenticity.” I love that word. Authentic means genuine, real, true – and when applied to people it means being true to yourself, being your TRUE self, expressing yourself, and nothing less. We sense when people are authentic, just as we can tell when they are imitating, or role playing. When we are authentic, our light shines through, and our path is illuminated. “This above allâ€¦” Shakespeare says. It is important to be authentic, important for our well-being and for our spiritual growth.
