Man Is Satisfied

Man, created in the image and likeness of God, is satisfied, always has been, and always will be, for satisfaction is a present quality of being. One who understands this truth may express satisfaction as naturally as intelligence or love. Man, as God's reflection, cannot help existing at the standpoint of perfect satisfaction. Mrs. Eddy points out: "Deity was satisfied with His work. How could He be otherwise, since the spiritual creation was the outgrowth, the emanation, of His infinite self-containment and immortal wisdom?" Science and Health, p. 519;

The real identity of each one of us expresses the divine completeness and is therefore entirely free from the unsatisfied sense that accompanies materiality. A mortal may seek gratification through such selfish drives as liquor, immorality, and tobacco, but the individual who is armed with the spiritual understanding of man's true identity is not deceived by the false picture and is consequently not subject to these enticements of matter. Satisfaction comes not from outside but from within. It is inherent in man's native makeup, a spiritual component of infinite being.
