In order to be an Aware-Human, authenticity is a first task to achieve.
It is that key which may unlock a door of opportunities and fortune. In order to be authentic person, a human does not need Master. Rather, authenticity makes him his own Master.
When human becomes authentic, he starts a whole new spiritual journey. His perspective of life begins to change and he starts seeing things in brand new dimensions. There are two basic dimensions of authenticity, which drive human to be more aware each day. They are internal authenticity and authenticity to outer world.
It is important to understand that every journey starts within. Every change should be driven from internal core of human’s heart and spirit. In similar manner, human cannot be authentic to universe and society until and unless he becomes authentic with his own self. Hence, the dimension of internal authenticity must be explored before taking the journey of external one.
Internal authenticity starts taking place when human becomes authentic to his inner self and starts accepting his nature or DNA. He acknowledged the fact that he is mean, selfish, self-centered or he is too soft, polite, sensitive, attached, and emotional. This exercise protects him from denial of his core existence. He starts FACING his mind and beliefs like one-to-one. He accepts his true nature no matter how bad it is and makes peace with himself. Similarly, he should also accept everything he has done in past and take responsibility of his actions. It is not a rocket science rather a simple acceptance of one’s feeling in a moment of time.
For example, if person hates his job but is afraid to quit it due to some reasons, he must accept his hatred. It will protect him from cursing his professional life constantly. In fact, it will allow him to sit quietly and ponder all his life choices. All he has to do is to gather courage and tell himself that “I hate my job and I don’t want to continue it”.
Acceptance is the key to Authenticity:
This exercise of accepting one’s own feelings and taking responsibility of it brings huge change in one’s life. They began to see the positive aspects of things which they don’t like or hate and slowly start to appreciate them. This appreciation comes due to the reason that person has solved his half of problems by accepting his feelings. After acceptance, a new stage begins that asks for solution of the problem. Human get enters into a phase in which he acts as “Ok, I have this issue now, what can I do for it solution”. This conscious state not only makes universe to open new doors of opportunities for him but it also push him to move on with his life.
This is how the internal authenticity can be acquired and it is not limited to professional life but applies on every aspect of human.
Similarly, the external authenticity is related with human’s social life. He needs to be authentic with his family, friends, kids, and colleagues. If person does not like someone, he must accept it to himself. It is possible that one’s dis-likeness is coming from his negative emotional state. Hence, authenticity will enable him to see himself from that height.
As on the roof of tall building, a person can observe the whole city similarly, authenticity brings human to roof of his self and allow him to watch his acts, likes, and dislikes from height. This height enables him to see his own faults in clearer manner. It introduces him with his real self.
This rule applies on every aspect of one’s personal and professional life. If person is not happy with hi marriage, accept it and make a confession. Once he becomes authentic, he will automatically work hard to make his marriage successful.
Authenticity helps to introduce human with his true self. Normally, an average human live a zombie life in which he is not conscious about his acts rather follows societal commands. However, when he becomes authentic, he start coming out of his zombie state. He began to see things in new positive perspective and automatically start giving value to his BEINGNESS.
