To thine own self be true

“This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”

~ William Shakespeare

And better yet, “to thine own spiritual self be true!” When you live true to your spiritual self, you prosper.

Your spiritual self is your divine self. It’s God’s image bringing inspiration, joy, gratitude, wisdom, sensible reasoning and health to the fore. It’s not an ego-driven drive to indulge selfish wants. It’s an unselfish desire to understand spiritual individuality better and live true to what God created you to be.

Your divine self is strong, wise, pure, confident, honest, just, loving, generous, happy and healthy. Don’t settle for anything less. Go for the best! Live true to what God has designed for you. Live true to your glorious grand spiritual self.

  1. QUOTE:
    “You were born to be real, not to be perfect. You’re here to be you, not to be what someone else wants you to be. Stand up for yourself, look them in the eye, and say ‘Don’t judge me until you know me, don’t underestimate me until you’ve challenged me, and don’t talk about me until you’ve talked to me’ .”

  2. What a lovely way to extend Shakespeare’s quote to its spiritual interpretation. This is a great daily prayerful affirmation.

  3. This is really excellent Evan, thank you! As I continue to transition away from an ego driven life into more spiritual understanding I really thrive on thoughts that help carry me to more understanding, I am so very grateful for your Spiritview and the thoughtful comments that follow it. Endless appreciation and love to all❣️

  4. Progress is growth in grace! It is only you that can do this so Love
    The real you…as an individual expression of God.
    Thanks for reminding us, Evan.

  5. “The sinless joy,—the perfect harmony and immortality of Life, possessing unlimited divine beauty and goodness without a single bodily pleasure or pain, — constitutes the only veritable, indestructible man, whose being is spiritual.”
    (S&H 76: 22-26)

    “Your joy no man taketh from you.”
    (John 16:22)

  6. Thank you Evan, that you explain us our true self which is not morteĺ, material man, but in reality the spiritual self of all mankind.
    That is so comforting and worth praying, to understand and live it!
    Oh dear Evan, the last paragraph of this SpiritView is so desirable to understand as our real self, and the best is, that it is a divine fact about us all, because God made everything including us (man) to his, divine Love’s image and likeness. And He/She made it all very good! So we can live true to our glorious and grand spiritual self!
    Always thanks very much for SpiritView ! 🙂
