✨”To Know Thyself is the beginning of Wisdom.” - Socrates
Authenticity is a way of being which is in alignment with the path of your highest purpose and also acknowledges where you are while honoring the journey of your past.
We each have the seed of our authentic greatness within, and it takes special nourishment to grow this seed into a fruitful tree of life!!
✨”There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self.” - Benjamin Franklin
So… Why is it so difficult a path to truly know ourselves?
We have patterns, assumptions based on past experiences, judgments, blame, shame, and guilt which cloud our perceptions of ourselves and others.
✨”’Know Thyself’ was written over the portal of the antique world. Over the portal of the new world ‘Be Thyself’ shall be written.” - Oscar Wilde
Once we have done the work (yes, it is work) to know ourselves and resolve and heal past wounds and unhealthy patterns which resulted from that wounding, each part of us piece by piece can be reclaimed and free to show through.
✨”Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” - Henry David Thoreau
Authenticity cannot be bought, it cannot be faked, it cannot be achieved through denial or escapism. Our true authenticity lays us bare for the world to see. Exquisitely vulnerable, yet… unshakable. True authenticity stands on the firm foundation of the eternal, the enduring pure essence of who we really are.
✨”We know what we are, but know not what we may be.” - William Shakespeare
When we make the commitment to knowing and being our authentic selves, we begin living a more fulfilled and joyous life! And we shine as a beacon of light to others.
