Authenticity in the Public Sphere

When we are authentic, others respond accordingly.  Especially in the public sphere, it becomes increasingly clear when a veil of deception is about to be cast upon us.  Of course, there might be those lacking immediate discernment, but at the end, s/he knows at the gut-instinctual level because it resonates accordingly.  The key is to listen to that resonance with honest receptors.

Authenticity and integrity run at the heart of Infinite Potentiality Theory (IPT) because it is critically necessary that the individual be as true to his self as possible in realizing his creative potentiality.  This inner honesty speaks to his authenticity and mirrors the very core of his essence.  And, as IPT defines it, the essence of essence is ultimate freedom.  In this manner, through his ability to be authentic, he can honestly realize his creative potentiality and by so doing, attain absolute liberation of and from his self.

In ultimate freedom, he exists in a sphere of liberation from and of the self. 

In ultimate freedom, he is liberation.

In liberation, he can be for the other.

…And in this liberation is the key to remove all barriers between self and other…

For more on authenticity and integrity, please see my post from June 11th “On Integrity…”:

To understand integrity with absolute clarity, it is important to distinguish it from authenticity.  That is why I juxtapose the two concepts in my book.  In a nutshell, I break it down to the following:

1a) As it applies to an object, authenticity is fidelity of its very essence, substance, fabrication, and origin to it’s creator.  It is authentic as it is genuine.  A popular example is a designer brand as opposed to an (ersatz) imitation of that brand.  The authentic object is the designer one because it is the designer’s own creation; rather than imitating, s/he is creating.  Another example is an authenticated fact, authentic as it is accurate.

1b) As it applies to a subject, authenticity is fidelity to the absolute essence of self.  It is fidelity without judgment, morality, and agency.  It is purity of essence without fetters or encumbrances.

2a) As it applies to an object, integrity is wholeness.  It is verifiable substance without hesitation and with unwavering agreement that holds unity.

2b) As it applies to a subject, integrity is twofold.  It is fidelity to essence in the backdrop of morality and judgment.  Thus, the key difference between integrity and authenticity is integrity’s inherent ethical component.  Such a person upholds a moral standard, acts accordingly, and is so judged – whether by her/himself or by others – as holding to integrity.

F&A

Frequency and Amplification

What is your frequency?

At what decibel do you vibe?

How much amplification do you need so you can resonate at your most productive?

Electrical charge – qua the electron – is commonly associated with the atom.  The human being at the atomic level is a marvelously charged entity.  Whether you realize it or not, the body is continuously reacting to electric charge surrounding it at an omnipresent level.

I made mention – in prior posts and in my book – the miraculous ‘charge’ within the ICP catalyst.  This is the activity the individual engages in continuously when realizing his creativity.  And the individual does this multiple times a day every day…

Furthermore, there is a (cacophonous) decibel of forced silence.  Anyone who attempts to ‘quiet the voices’ undoubtedly has ‘heard’ the noise.  Imagine what it would be to exist in true silence…quite another dimension of freedom, indeed!

So again:

What is your frequency?

At what decibel do you vibe?

How much amplification do you need so you can resonate at your most productive?

Take time to be empowered at your highest frequency and let that amplify your effective resonance to the world!

On Integrity…

In the second part of my book, I discuss integrity (please see, “Integrity and Authenticity: A Critical Analysis from Four Perspectives“).  The current implications of and quasi-desensitization to integrity are critical harbingers to the (demise and decline of) human civilization.  I can not impress upon this enough.

To understand integrity with absolute clarity, it is important to distinguish it from authenticity.  That is why I juxtapose the two concepts in my book.  In a nutshell, I break it down to the following:

1a) As it applies to an object, authenticity is fidelity of its very essence, substance, fabrication, and origin to it’s creator.  It is authentic as it is genuine.  A popular example is a designer brand as opposed to an (ersatz) imitation of that brand.  The authentic object is the designer one because it is the designer’s own creation; rather than imitating, s/he is creating.  Another example is an authenticated fact, authentic as it is accurate.

1b) As it applies to a subject, authenticity is fidelity to the absolute essence of self.  It is fidelity without judgment, morality, and agency.  It is purity of essence without fetters or encumbrances.

2a) As it applies to an object, integrity is wholeness.  It is verifiable substance without hesitation and with unwavering agreement that holds unity.

2b) As it applies to a subject, integrity is twofold.  It is fidelity to essence in the backdrop of morality and judgment.  Thus, the key difference between integrity and authenticity is integrity’s inherent ethical component.  Such a person upholds a moral standard, acts accordingly, and is so judged – whether by her/himself or by others – as holding to integrity.

To an exponential degree, the individual mediates self-anonymity through electronic technologies.  There is a pernicious barrier of distance and desensitization to one’s own actions, behaviors, and decisions when consequences are ignored or otherwise ‘shielded’ from immediate cognition and conscience behind mediums of our portable gadgetry and electronic appendages.  Technology, rather than the human voice, increasingly fills the communicative sphere with a strident cacophony of discordant noise.

The questions become:

How long will the human voice be silenced?

When will human conversation reclaim its own communicative sphere?

Resolution to the individual’s trajectory of demise and decline can be found when s/he reclaims agency and upholds integrity and fidelity to the creative process.  Communication is key to the creative process, whether internally within the individual, or externally amongst a group of two+ people.  However, when technology is allowed to replace human contact, a de-sensitivity is thus mediated enabling an increasing tolerance to a compromised and even vanishing integrity.

The SWF Q&A:

A more salient question to this issue of integrity and authenticity is, “So what? What is the relevance?”

Without being a romantic philologist, I agree the entire fabric of the human condition is woven in communication.  Without communicative expression upholding human integrity, I am hard-pressed to find the legacy or ‘torch’ of humanity passed with any meaningful impact.  Some – if not all – of man’s greatest achievements are motivated by an attribute qualified through integrity.  It is no surprise then, how increasingly rare it is to find such achievements today…

Indeed, to answer the SWF question, the relevance is omnipresent and inexorable as it centers around the very core of humanity itself.
