TRUE IDENTIFICATION

The opening chapter of the Bible establishes man's identity as the image and likeness of God, divine Mind, and Christian Science awakens us to the blessings of this true identification.

Mary Baker Eddy makes this hopeful and thought-provoking statement in "Unity of Good" (p. 64): "Mortals may climb the smooth glaciers, leap the dark fissures, scale the treacherous ice, and stand on the summit of Mont Blanc; but they can never turn back what Deity knoweth, nor escape from identification with what dwelleth in the eternal Mind." This statement has particular appeal because the author says "mortals" not "immortals." So each one can see that this applies to him, even if he has not reached the point where he has proved himself to be an immortal idea of God in any great measure. Even though one thinks of himself as a mortal, he will be lifted out of this sense of mortality through proper identification with "what dwelleth in the eternal Mind."
