It is my opinion that existence as we know it is all about choice. More importantly ONE choice; one from which all subsequent others are made. That choice is one of identity. It presents itself as the question that plagues us, demanding that we seek out an answer; Who Am I? What is my identity? Many have consciously forgotten about this question and have consequently on a subconscious level sought out its potential answers in the accumulation of things; wealth, pleasure, power etc. Others, either through wisdom or experience, understand that “the truth [isn’t] out there” but rather it is within. With regards to identity, is there such a thing as an “Authentic Identity” and if so, how are we authenticated? Let us examine these questions.
“Authentic Identity is the remaining in sameness of a genuine, and real self in the exact likeness of (…) in our nature and quality.”
