    From another thread:

    In philosophical (Platonic) life, piety is practicing philosophy whose aim is to "become as godlike as possible" = "serving one's own God", i.e., one's own self.Apollodorus

    On a personal level, piety is being good to one's own self, the inner divine intelligence, by recognizing its divine identity and acting according to what is good for the self (nous) in Platonic terms.Apollodorus


    What's the difference between narcissistic self-aggrandizement and pantheism?

    They have nothing to do with each other, and you haven't said anything here about pantheism.

    Pantheism is a view that the entirety of the universe taken all together is God. You seem to be talking about something more like autotheism.
