To be genuine is to be sincere, authentic, and truthful. If we are lucky, there are people in our lives with whom we can be our genuine self, without pretense or buffers. And if we are skillful, we can recognize the truth of ourselves, claiming the good, the bad, and the ugly, without secrecy or denial. How freeing to live in truth.
In mindful presence,
There is something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sound of the genuine in yourself. It is the only true guide you will ever have. —Howard Thurman
