Examining "authenticity"

We are told often that we should always try to be our most "authentic" selves. We also like trying new and authentic cuisines or even authentic staples in fashion, yet, we do not completely understand what "authentic" means in a world where change is inevitable.

The word is usually used to describe something that is truthful or genuine. As long as qualifying information is provided while using this term, it can lessen the chances of the word being used for semantic traps.

The word "natural" is a common term we hear in our daily lives. We hear it in advertisements, from our local politicians, and many more.

These are ambiguous words used to stir a discussion to a certain direction and to influence people’s judgments. These words don’t have a specific meaning and overall are words that are systemically misleading.

Being an intuitive person means that you are able to feel that something is true without the need of conscious reasoning.

Very interesting to understanding the connection of our internal organs (physical) with the spirit within us (energy). Wholesome and holistic overall look of our health.
