Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we're supposed to be and embracing who we really are.
Trying to figure out who we're supposed to be is a hard enough challenge in an ever-changing and dynamic world filled with people coming and going.
In fact, it's an impossible challenge. So it's better to stop trying to be what others expect. This can never be attained when surrounded by an inconstant collection of mental judgments.
Embracing who we really are is the easy part. By letting go of that illusion surrounding us, our soul is exposed for what it was always meant to be.
I believe that this makes perfect sense. Peeling away the layers of the onion.
