Daily Inspiration, October 13th

be-true

“Know thyself, and God will supply the wisdom and the occasion for a victory over evil.” (Science and Health, page 571)

What does it mean to know thyself? It’s an important question if we are to obtain that true wisdom and opportunity to overcome evil in our lives. If we are to really live our good life, then it is important to know who we really are.

This quote echoes the sentiments of Shakespeare and other inspired writers and thinkers. The bard said “to thine own self be true.” This is imperative to claiming the rewards that are inherently ours. If we attempt to be someone we are not or to accept less than we are, we dishonor our own heritage and separate ourselves from the natural good that comes of being just who God made us to be.

We will come to know ourselves truly not by what genetics or human history or opinions would say about us. We discover who we are by having a heart-to-heart with God, with Love. It is by turning to God for the good news; it is by recognizing and accepting that we were made by a wise and perfect God Who has maintained us lovingly and fully approves of the idea He made. It is by honoring Him enough to refuse to put on qualities that do not dignify God or us; traits that don’t make us feel safe, peaceful, or truly happy and right. It is also by loving just who we are, without comparison to others, cherishing this uniqueness, and recognizing the power of being authentic.

The victory over evil—a false sense of God and our own identity as His child—is not a distant hope. It is found right where you are. It is being true to you and knowing just how amazing and good and worthy you are!
