SELFHOOD, THE CONTENT OF CONSCIOUSNESS

Next to "What is truth?" the leading question in human thought is, "What am I? what is the nature of selfhood, and how shall I define it?" and Christian Science is pouring such a flood of light upon both these subjects that the world's thinking respecting them is rapidly being revolutionized.

The speaking subject "I" or "we" is and must ever be identified with consciousness. Its character is determined by the kind and quality of thought entertained and expressed; hence the nature of this speaking ego is reached by the analysis of consciousness. When we remember the Scripture assertion that man was made in the divine image and likeness, and understand in Christian Science that this creation pertains to the eternal now, that it signifies the continuous activity or going forth of the divine nature, we can but perceive that the true ego or Christ-consciousness, the "child of God," is wholly constituted of the reflections of divine Mind, in which there can be no falsity or contradiction whatever. Thus "man and his Maker are correlated in divine Science, and real consciousness is cognizant only of the things of God" (Science and Health, p. 276).
