LOVE ONE ANOTHER

To love our neighbor as ourselves is not transcendental idealism. It is a divine commandment, voiced through Moses (Lev. 19:18) and reiterated by Jesus (Matt. 22:39). The measure of our obedience to this commandment is the measure of our understanding of the allness of God, good, and of man as His spiritual, perfect reflection.

Is there really any erring mortal whom we must love? In Deuteronomy (4:35) we read, "The Lord he is God; there is none else beside him." Then, if "there is none else beside him," man is not an erring mortal personality with a mind separate from God; he must be the reflection or expression of the one I AM. As we thus rightly identify ourselves and others, we begin to know man as God knows him— spiritual, sinless, without spot or blemish, and hence forever lovable and lovely.
