Authenticity is our actual experience of who we are as a human being. Authenticity is what we are really being, feeling, thinking, desiring and doing, behind the masks and defenses that all of us learned were necessary in order to survive and be accepted. We learned to hide, pretend, and put on a mask by suppressing and controlling our thoughts, feelings, desires and behaviors. Most people get so good at it that the false persona that we adopted is believed to be who we really are. As one awakens to truth there is a discovery of beingness and awareness that is impersonal and limitless. This awareness can now provide the sacred space that allows all the aspects of our authentic self that were judged, feared, and hidden to be seen, experienced and allowed to be. This is the process of liberating our humanness, and allowing our authentic life expression to evolve and mature.
