Abundance through Reflection

Christ Jesus stated a fundamental spiritual fact when he said, "The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise." Mary Baker Eddy, on page 475 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," has defined man, in part, as "that which has not a single quality underived from Deity; that which possesses no life, intelligence, nor creative power of his own, but reflects spiritually all that belongs to his Maker."

This truth became evident to a student of Christian Science while standing before a mirror, as he noted the completeness of his reflection. He carefully pondered Mrs. Eddy's illustration in the Christian Science textbook where she says (pp. 515, 516): "Now compare man before the mirror to his divine Principle, God. Call the mirror divine Science, and call man the reflection. Then note how true, according to Christian Science, is the reflection to its original. As the reflection of yourself appears in the mirror, so you, being spiritual, are the reflection of God."
