RADIANT REFLECTION

One evening someone stood on a hillside overlooking the sea. The air was still, the sea was calm, and a radiant sunset flamed in the west. As the brilliant colors changed from purple to crimson and from crimson to gold, the sea gave back a perfect reflection. Finally, when the pageant of the sunset was over, the sky was suffused with palest lavender, and this delicate shade also was reflected in the tranquil sea.

The watcher remembered the words of Christ Jesus (John 5:19), "The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise." A correlative passage in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy reads (p. 471), "Man is, and forever has been, God's reflection." In the same book the following definition of God is given (p. 465): "God is incorporeal, divine, supreme, infinite Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love."
