Who Am I?
To search for one's true identity in the realm of matter and material consciousness is to search for a selfhood that always eludes one's grasp. The nagging question Who am I? is answered in Science and Health, where Mrs. Eddy defines man as "the compound idea of infinite Spirit; the spiritual image and likeness of God; the full representation of Mind." Science and Health, p. 591;
One's fear that his real identity can never be found, together with his belief that it can ever be lost, would be eliminated if one understood that this identity is intact, forever whole, forever complete. Mrs. Eddy states: "The spiritual man's consciousness and individuality are reflections of God. They are the emanations of Him who is Life, Truth, and Love. Immortal man is not and never was material, but always spiritual and eternal." p. 336; Fears and anxieties must give place to the higher understanding of the inviolability of true selfhood. Because our true individuality is the reflection of God, we can be secure in the knowledge that it is ours throughout eternity.
The full understanding of man's identity would remove forever all our animosity, envy, striving, and jostling for position. We do not have to fight others to establish our identity; it is now and always will be the perfect reflection of God in all His beauty and grandeur.
