"Outer appearances can deter true reality. For plots are camouflaged with opportunities that smile with lies of commonality. However, if you recognize, what's real will steal the appeal from a suped up deal. A mannequin will always be a mannequin regardless of how you dress it."
When you understand what is real, it's easy to spot what isn’t. However, in order to be able to recognize what’s real or authentic, you must be familiar with it. Being around people and environments where people are not honest with others or themselves can negatively influence what use to be genuine. Yet if you surround yourself with people and situations who of a high standard of integrity, you plant seeds grounded in something legitimate. When you are rooted to the truth, then anything but that will feel foreign.
