Spiritual Growth Articles

Your Authentic Self.


"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart."
--Carl Jung

 

This month, our Feature Articles are looking at the theme of "Your Authentic Self: Living an Authentic Life." We will learn how to live more authentically and purposefully with the help of ten experts who offer us sage advice and guidance for discovering and honoring our authentic selves.

I, personally, believe that living authentically is the most important aspect of living soulfully. There is nothing more important or meaningful in life than honoring your authentic self--your true nature--and expressing it in the world. When you honor your most authentic self--your Spirit--you are allowing your Light to shine and touch the world. Living authentically, in its simplest terms, is living your Truth, the truth in your heart and soul. It's allowing yourself to be guided by Divine Truth and Wisdom, each and every day, and doing your Highest, most authentic work in the world. It's joyfully creating and living your Highest purpose!

Living authentically is not always easy. It can be hard work, but the rewards are worth the effort. It requires the courage to ask yourself the hard questions and be completely honest with yourself about what is truly important to you in life and how you can live your Highest Good. It's following your heart's wisdom, living your Truth, and being real in every sense. When you are living an authentic life, you are contributing your soulful nature and gifts to the world and, thus, creating a better, more authentic and soulful life experience for us all.

May peace and joy be yours, as you discover and honor your authentic self.

"Let the beauty you love, be what you do."
--Rumi
