INDIVIDUALITY VERSUS PERSONAL SENSE

How blessed it is to become acquainted, even if at first only in a small degree, with our spiritual individuality. No two individuals are alike. Each one has his own identity, which is divinely mental, incorporeal, complete, sound, whole, and harmonious. Christ Jesus understood his true individuality. In "Miscellaneous Writings" our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, says (pp. 103, 104), "Even while his personality was on earth and in anguish, his individual being, the Christ, was at rest in the eternal harmony."

In order to comprehend our true individuality and substance we need to understand God, to be acquainted with His will and purpose for His spiritual idea, man. In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, we find clear teaching with regard to God's infinitude, almightiness, and omnipresence. We learn that God is All-in-all. He is all-inclusive, self-existent, ever aware of His own allness and of each of His ideas, which He lovingly governs with His own perfect law of harmony. He is the all-knowing and all-acting Mind. He is Spirit, the substance of every idea. He is Love, ever giving to man and the universe the necessary support and maintenance required for well-being.
