Many of us have lived our whole lives in comparison to others and copying others. Our society supports inauthenticity. We are expected to wear different types of masks to play the role of all sorts of characters, BUT ourSelves. We wear so many different masks that we forget who/what we truly are. The mask starts to get stuck and now we believe we are the mask. Living authentically takes courage and the ability to listen to our inner guide or heart. This inner voice will guide us and encourage us to follow the path set out for us to Truth, Freedom, Joy, Heaven.
