Creating an authentic life

“If we are to have any hope of practicing true, deep acceptance, we must become authentic beings.”
—Dan Clark

Part of accepting others instead of passing judgement is learning to live with authenticity. This word gets tossed around but the true meaning of authenticity is to be real, present, vulnerable, open and filled with self-discipline and self-love.

The Heights of Significance

Of all the billions of people living on this planet, the vast majority are striving for success. They work hard, they put in the time and many of them have obtained a level that the world would regard as “successful.” But what does that mean? Does success mean just finding and obtaining wealth and status?

My definition of success is getting what you want and finding happiness on a superficial level. Success is achieving goals without having much purpose behind those goals. Success is creating the life you want, but leaving no legacy.
