Man Is No Stranger
The migration of peoples seeking a new environment and fresh opportunity has been a feature of history since early Biblical times. Many today, impelled either by necessity or by a deep desire for personal, political, economic or religious freedom, have taken such a step. But the task of beginning afresh in unfamiliar surroundings often poses problems. Differences in language, custom, or climate, combined with a sense of alienation, often tend to make the immigrant's taste of newfound freedom and opportunity seem disappointing. Christian Science teaches that the specific remedy for such a situation is to gain a correct understanding of man's true identity as the likeness of God. Mrs. Eddy makes this revealing statement: "Identity is the reflection of Spirit, the reflection in multifarious forms of the living Principle, Love." Science and Health, p. 477;
Through this Science one learns that man is not a mortal, surrounded by indifference, superiority, hostility, or misunderstanding, for man's real identity is spiritual. He always exists within the tender embrace of infinite Spirit, Love. In this spiritual environment, the realm of unassailable harmony, man is no stranger to God. Divine Love, God, understands and cherishes His image and likeness, and He is eternally bestowing His infinite love and goodness impartially upon all. Mutual understanding and love characterize all God's ideas.
The truth is that in the allness of divine Spirit there are no divisions of race, color, creed, or language. Man is born of God, his divine Father-Mother Love. His real individuality is the reflection of divine Principle. Through the universal language of Love he reflects Mind's communication of wisdom and intelligence, and is thus understood, appreciated, and loved.
