Hello I really hope that y’all can help me. for my first tattoo I would like a Japanese sentence and that goes as followed “to live in authentic truth”

I’m have looked online and asked multiple people but thus far no luck. I am pretty much looking for a full translation of the sentence as I have close to no knowledge of the Japanese language but I am very interested in it.

Thank you in advance!

It's tricky to translate things like this because something always gets lost in translation. Can you add 2 or 3 additional sentences that explain the core meaning you're targeting?
For example "to live true to oneself" or "to live with integrity and honesty" or "to attain enlightenment" etc.

Hi thank you for responding I really appreciate it. The rough translation for me is something like you should ‘live by your own beliefs’ and the two that you mentioned also fit very well. Thank you for your input too :)

So the examples would be:
- to live in authentic truth
- to live true to oneself
- to live with integrity and honesty
- embrace who you truly are
- to live by your own beliefs
