FINDING ONE'S TRUE SELF

Resolve to be thyself: and know, that he Who finds himself, loses his misery.

Many philosophers and sages have proffered similar advice to this of Matthew Arnold's, but it remained for Mary Baker Eddy to reveal the wisdom to profit by it. In her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." she writes (pp. 515,516): "Your mirrored reflection is your own image or likeness. If you lift a weight, your reflection does this also. If you speak, the lips of this likeness move in accord with yours. Now compare man before the mirror to his divine Principle, God. Call the mirror divine Science, and call man the reflection. Then note how true, according to Christian Science, is the refection to its original. As the reflection of yourself appears in the mirror, so you, being spiritual, are the reflection of God."
