We could say that authenticity is the art of being authentic, the art of discovering and telling the truth.
However, we have become accustomed to lying, half-truths, and what today we call spin.
When looking at the world it seems that we are constantly pushed towards the superficial, and the unauthentic.
Yet all of us carry within ourselves the true "story" of our lives. We all carry aspirations, dreams, and ideals. If we live them and express them they can become an expression of our authenticity.
