True Identity

Each one of us has a possession which is distinctly his own, and which could belong to no one else; something from which he can never be separated, and which he can never lose. It is his true identity.

"Identity is the reflection of Spirit," says Mary Baker Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 477), "the reflection in multifarious forms of the living Principle, Love." Our identity, then, is our true self in the likeness of Spirit, God; it is what Spirit, God, knows about us. Our true identity is indicated by the good we are reflecting. This identity is entirely spiritual, entirely separate from what mortal mind or material sense tells us about ourselves. A false mortal picture of identity is material personality, while the true identity of man is individualized spiritual reflection.
