The New Culture Of Pretense

Beauty Unfolds 11 – Click on image for details

Authenticity is so important to one’s well being, but seemingly it’s absent a majority of the time in this new culture of pretense.

Sadly, bait and switch has become the norm rather than the exception. It’s alarming that those who practice this behavior see no harm in deceiving others to fuel their own progress! Thankfully, in the end, there is such a thing called Karma. No bad deed goes unpunished and no good deed goes unrewarded!

Be your authentic self and let others love you for who you are — the real you! In similar fashion, practice acceptance of others. No two people were created the same. Through our differences do we learn to foster tolerance, growth and belief in powers greater than ourselves.

If a person’s actions conflict with their words, chances are authenticity has been compromised. Habits, good or bad, are hard to break! Conclusion, I’d bet my money on actions any day – – for they speak louder than words! Don’t be deceived by schmoozers. Let time reveal a person’s true identity.   Respect others as you too wish to be respected. Show appreciation often. Criticize constructively. Find joy in simple things. May peace and happiness be with you now and always as you journey towards being your authentic self!

Absolute power

image

 

I’ve heard it said that
“Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

But I’d like to think
that strong moral values
and a propensity to a balanced life
would be a deterrent to absolute corruption.

Though the human mind is sinful,
I choose to belief
there is still good
in this messed up world.

I still think there can be
beauty amid all this chaos.
