All my life I had been looking for something, and everywhere I turned someone tried to tell me what it was. I accepted their answers too, though they were often in contradiction and even self-contradictory. I was naïve. I was looking for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, and only I, could answer. It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with: that I am nobody but myself. (Ralph Ellison, “Battle Royal”)

Today, if you will, consider: We are born on this Earth for a purpose. Yes, we are all of one Source, but we also are born of different colors, personalities, and energy. We are born with purpose. We are born with AUTHENTICITY. Is there anything more important in life than to honor the AUTHENTICITY of you? What is your true nature? You are born on this Earth to express your true nature and to allow your light of AUTHENTICITY to shine and cultivate in the Universe. Simply, living a life of AUTHENTICITY is about living truth of heart and soul.  In what ways do you allow the guidance of truth and wisdom lead you to be the real you each and every day? Being authentic in the world is creating and living your highest purpose. Is AUTHENTICITY something you visit from time to time or is it where you live 24/7?
