"THE UNDERLYING REALITY OF REFLECTION"

In beautiful symbolisms drawn from nature our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, gives us in her book "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" a vivid idea of reflection and of the dominion and power of those who become the "radiant reflection of Christ's glory." There she says (p. 150): "Stand by the limpid lake, sleeping amid willowy banks dyed with emerald. See therein the mirrored sky and the moon ablaze with her mild glory. This will stir your heart. Then, in speechless prayer, ask God to enable you to reflect God, to become His own image and likeness, even the calm, clear, radiant reflection of Christ's glory, healing the sick, bringing the sinner to repentance, and raising the spiritually dead in trespasses and sins to life in God."

The waters of the tranquil lake faithfully mirror the majesty of mountains and the light of evening stars. The loveliness of Love shines through nature's blooms, and divine melodies are echoed in the summer songs of the meadow lark. This hints the fact that all real being exists as reflection, the radiant reflection of God.
