Free and genuine

Do all you can in the way of good works, but do so solely for the
praise of God. Live as if you did not exist. Expect and ask nothing in
return. Then the merchant inside you will be driven out of the temple
God has made. Then God alone dwells there. This is how the temple
is c
leared: when a person honors God alone. Only
such a person is free and genuine.

~Meister Eckhart
