Why is this something that people lack?
Why do some of us become copy cats trying to duplicate, replicate or reproduce someone else's journey, success or happiness? I saw it as a photographer, I saw it in my friendships and I see it now.
Many of these people follow the same path as the narcissists, because they lack security in themselves and their own natural talents and abilities.
This last week I have had so many coming to me talking about how people were just being "copy cats" and stealing, duplicating or in some way being inauthentic something of theirs.
Ha. Welcome to the club ladies and gents
Imitation isn't the best form of flattery. It's just not.
Imitation is a symptom of imbalance in our souls, an imbalance in our WELLBEING.
I grew up in this very pasture. I spent my entire childhood here. On Friday I just so happened to be driving by right as the sun crested the tops of the badlands, and it was the most beautiful sight.
The second I saw this sight in front of me yesterday, I realized something very important. I realized that when we are truly authentic, it really does show. When people are fake or copying someone else, they miss the details. They miss the baby calves laying in the sagebrush. They can't help but miss the details, because their perception isn't the truth of the picture.
I don't just see a pretty picture.
I see the grace of God in the sound of a newborn calf. I see the beauty of Mother Earth, as the grass begins to turn the prettiest emerald green you've ever laid your eyes on. I see the joy and abundance of a beautiful day, with the glorious rays of the creator shine down upon us.
To me, I see all of creation in this photo.
I see authentic Divine energy. I see healing from Mother Earth for all the pains we suffer. I see the spirits all around, welcoming us as their family!
Being authentic is the most amazing thing you can be in this life. If you can choose to be anyone, chose to be yourself.
