Are you Authentic? And what does that even mean?
Authenticity. Am I there yet? Are you? I think I am. Sometimes I am, when my ego gets out of the way. And when I spend quiet time alone. If I believe how Carl Jung describes it and taught through one of his missions in life “the process by which the personal and collective unconscious are brought into consciousness to reveal one’s whole personality”. Then yeah…..I’d like to get there (smile). And just imagine, if we all lived authentically and stopped trying to compete with everyone and everything else in the world; how much more creative, intelligent, successful, joyful and peaceful we could be? I know…..wishful thinking, right? I can’t say for sure, but for me, the moments I spend being creative always puts me in a state of “flow” and I feel authentic. I think it’s because I’m creating something original, from my own mind. What are some ways you feel “authentic”. Please feel free to share.
I’m creating these sweet tea diffusers that I use for my loose herbal tea. They are so much fun to make. I’m decorating them with beads and charms. Fill them with whatever tea you like and steep in a hot cup of water for 5 minutes. They hang really nicely over the cup.
For now….. There is a painting and an authentic whisper calling my name. Enjoy your evening.
