Living as your most authentic self is the highest goal you can obtain in life, and it is one of the pillars of what it means to be truly spiritual.
For most people, reaching a stage of living authentically can take a long time and involves dealing with past trauma, life circumstances, getting past low self-esteem and self worth, as well as removing conditioning and expectations placed on us by society.
However, I believe that living authentically is the happiest, most fulfilling existence one can aim for and by living your life authentically according to the truth of who you truly are as a person, then you also make it possible for others to live in their true authentic selves.
Living authentically can be difficult and requires a lot of courage. We all wear different masks for different situations, but living authentically means discarding those masks and present who you really are to the world, which can be very challenging for most…and unfortunately, people living in certain places of the world simply does not permit them to live their authentic selves publicly, doing so would put them at great risk. For those in this position, know that the most important aspect of living authentically is about being authentic with yourself and not about anyone else or the public.
Nonetheless, for those fortunate enough who manage to unveil their their true selves will find that when they live their life with fearless authenticity, they will attract people and begin to be surrounded by those who will help them reach their greatest good and highest potential, and of course they will also experience the most fulfilling relationships. Equally so, the people in their lives who are toxic and harmful will begin to fall away from their lives.
So start today, ask yourself right now “What is holding me back from living a life that is in line with absolute truth, and what changes can I make that will move me towards fearless authenticity?”
