"To know that man reflects all that God includes . . . is to experience . . . peace"
In human experience it is increasingly necessary to identify oneself. To facilitate this, one usually carries with him various cards and other means of identification, giving pertinent facts regarding his appearance and his background in education and business. This human method of identification classifies man as mortal, born of human parents, occupying space in a material universe peopled with millions of other finite mortals, each with a mind, body, background, and self-interest peculiarly his own, subject to chance, change, and conditions outside his control.
Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health (p. 477): "Identity is the reflection of Spirit, the reflection in multifarious forms of the living Principle, Love. Soul is the substance, Life, and intelligence of man, which is individualized, but not in matter. Soul can never reflect anything inferior to Spirit."
Since man's true identity as understood in Christian Science is the reflection of God, it is wholly spiritual. It is of primal importance that mankind awaken to man's oneness with God as His idea, or reflection, for it is only through the realization and demonstration of his real nature that one can experience in any condition and under all circumstances the freedom and dominion of his spiritual identity.
