True Unity

The words "one" and "oneness," as used in the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, bring to the student a sense of completeness and unity—God infinitely expressed, and all true existence in and of God. This satisfies and stills the human heart, bringing a serene conviction of the divine activity of the one universal power. Thereby the heavy thought of personal responsibility is overcome and supplanted, and men learn to let go of themselves as mere physical personalities, to find their real selfhood as the image and likeness of the one and only I AM. "I am God, and there is none else."

A tremendous sacrifice of materiality, born of a deep desire to know and do the will of God, must precede this spiritual acceptance and growth. Because such desire is true prayer, it may be rightfully accompanied by instant rejoicing that the fulfillment is already begun. A conscious sense of spiritual lack brings its own promise of supply, in accordance with the words of the Master, "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled." Of a certainty, the yearning to find God, and to know Him as All-in-all, will be fulfilled.
