Removing self-imposed restrictions

Being All We Can Be

In the very first book of the Bible is this stupendous statement: "God created man in his own image." Gen. 1:27; What possibilities this implies! All that God has and is, man must possess as His reflection.

We can all learn to stop thinking of ourselves as limited, mortal beings, cut off from satisfaction and success, and begin to see that we are actually inseparable from the source of all good, infinite divine Love. Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health, "Knowledge that we can accomplish the good we hope for, stimulates the system to act in the direction which Mind points out." Science and Health, p. 394;

Christian Science brings to light man's unity with God, divine Mind. It shows that each of us is actually a spiritual idea, the reflection of this Mind. Intelligence, originality, and ability are qualities continuously imparted by God to His beloved offspring; therefore they are available to all. Man is the eternally complete, active, intelligent idea of God—not the inferior, fearful, or inadequate mortal so often pictured by the physical senses. Now and always man expresses the fullness of immortal being.
