To be genuine about anything it has to be without conditions.
Love, kindness, generosity, empathy…whatever it is, can only be authentic if there are no strings attached to it, no looking for a return, no agenda.
The real things that matter are unconditional and from the heart in a state of consciousness. Once the mind becomes involved it will be driven by ego and manipulation, an agenda will be there.
Behaviour is often more to do with how we think others will perceive us than what we truly feel.
Yet, we are all doing the same, more worried about appearances to others than being authentic.
Being authentic is hard as we are conditioned to consider what others think and it leaves us feeling like we are in the wilderness when we don’t conform, no longer fitting in.
Mad how we condition ourselves as humans to act against our true selves to satisfy the imagined view of us by another.
