Dissolving False Selfhood

In a short paragraph beginning on page 1 of "Miscellaneous Writings," Mary Baker Eddy points out the blessings which accrue from the qualities of humility, meekness, and goodness. She writes as follows:

"Humility is the stepping-stone to a higher recognition of Deity. The mounting sense gathers fresh forms and strange fire from the ashes of dissolving self, and drops the world. Meekness heightens immortal attributes only by removing the dust that dims them. Goodness reveals another scene and another self seemingly rolled up in shades, but brought to light by the evolutions of advancing thought, whereby we discern the power of Truth and Love to heal the sick."
