“If you want to measure how authentic your life is, you are not being authentic. Authenticity is not comparison. It is kindness and ease. It is respect for the unique life path of every living thing, which are dramatically different from your own, yet absolutely perfect and ideal and the best possible path for that other life.
“When you are authentic, you continually as yourself questions like, ‘Do I act the same in a crowd as I do one on one?’ or ‘Am expecting something from others that I am not practicing myself?’ You continually put yourself on the witness stand for your own behavior.” -Amy Larson, amyjalapeno.com
