ONENESS

The sun and its rays are one. The sun expresses itself through the rays, but the rays have no underived power and no function except to reflect the qualities of the sun. This hints a fundamental spiritual truth of being and one that Mary Baker Eddy states simply and unequivocally in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (pp. 465, 466): "Principle and its idea is one, and this one is God, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent Being, and His reflection is man and the universe."

From his oneness with God as idea, man derives power, security, meekness. Conscious of his at-one-ment with Life and Love, he functions with undepleted strength, clothed with the light and loveliness of spiritual qualities, meek and secure in his origin. This is true of spiritual man, and there is no other. This may seem hard for material sense to comprehend and believe. When the sun is hidden by clouds, however, material belief yields to an understanding of natural science, and no doubt is ever expressed as to the existence of the sun with its rays. In like manner all false sense testimony concerning man, his health, nature, qualities, and characteristics, must yield to the understanding of divine Science.
