The Truth of You, and All

You are a child of God, Spirit. He is the source of your being. You are not Spirit, but are spiritual, as the sunbeam is not the sun but expresses it.

God is Spirit, eternal and infinite, and God is All. We live and have our being in God as His immortal idea, and not in the belief of changeable, limited, and perishable matter.

God, divine Mind, has no thoughts of perishability and death. Otherwise He would be mortal. What God knows is all that's really true. The biblical writer who calls himself the Preacher affirms in Ecclesiastes, "I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it." Eccl. 3:14; You are and remain as God knows you because that is the way God created man, perfect and immortal. There is no other possibility. Life is where and what God is—everywhere and eternal. God is Life, and what exists in Him does not die.
