Man Exists as Idea

In the realm of the real, where existence is constituted of God's ideas, every idea is perfect. The idea of substance never experiences change or lack. The idea of health, since it is a perfect idea, has nothing in its perfectness that could experience change or disintegration. The idea of business, and all that is real about business, is an indestructible idea, whose perfection is sustained by the ever-present God.

There cannot be two true ideas about the same concept. There could never be two ideas about identity. The idea of identity is perfect. It is never in matter, but exists right where material selfhood and embodiment would claim to be.

Divine concepts and divine ideas are one and the same. Mortal mind's concepts and false beliefs, claiming presence, reality, and permanence, do not alter or change the fact that all that exists is God and His idea—His manifestation of goodness. Goodness can never be disturbed, invaded, separated, or made to be less than goodness.
