"I write to discover what I think." Joan Didion
The joy goes deeper then the exploration of all things externally - too few are willing to look within themselves to find a wealth of knowledge they need to cope with the world - as in finding out their real strengths and weaknesses.
It is a fact that our upliftment is brought about through our authentic living - but we must do more than 'talk' about authenticity - we have to discover what it first means.
We can find so many who believe themselves to be 'authentic' but they continue to live ignorant of themselves - therefore, authenticity has a deeper description.
Authenticity needs to be viewed as something that is, impeccable. Our Impeccability of character and in convictions - when geared towards righteous thoughts and actions is what makes us authentic - our lives need to be guided towards the upliftment of the world at large, and not just of our selves... But that is demonstrated through our impeccable actions and thoughts - it is not something that can be wholly taught, but rather experienced and observed - these are the true explorations - and new and final frontiers.
