Authentic Action?

How can we be more authentic with our life?  With our actions?  Does authenticity in our actions matter?  If so, how do we understand the deeper intent and motivation behind our actions?

I've been caught up with a term called orthopraxy, or right practice, which contrasts orthoproxy, or basically, right thinking.  Often times, the latter is emphasized.  Maybe because it can be defended, posted, claimed and blowhorned.  It's a marketer's dream, and let's face it, most of us American's are self-marketing professionals.  Where as our lives, our current, living, breathing testimony, is quietly leaving a wake where ever we paddle.  This wake. Our wake.  This is orthopraxy.  This is our legacy.  This is our life.  This is what other paddlers can feel, lapping against the sidewalls of their canoes.  Or maybe splashing over the sides.

What does it mean to tread lightly?  Lead by example?  Leave no trace?


Please practice.  A request.  It doesn't ask to understand.  It doesn't ask to debate.  Please practice. 


Orthopraxy.


The question is no longer: what do you believe in, but rather, how do you believe?
