I recently read a funny saying that made me burst out laughing: “I meditate. I burn candles. I drink green tea, and I still want to smack some people.” Yes . . . we are all human sharing a human experience. How true that sometimes we are just going to get angry with others. But it’s also true it’s okay to honor your true feelings.
Who is that person behind the mask? And why would someone choose to hide his or her real self? My upcoming novel, Journey of the Lightworker, explores the concept of authenticity—or being true to one’s internal beliefs rather than externally imposed ideas. The more we look outside ourselves to create a sense of identity, the further we get away from our true selves. So, what does it mean to be an authentic person? The simplest definition of authenticity is to be genuine, real, and true to your core inner beliefs.
