The two are inseparable

Immortality and Brotherhood

We can begin now to see greater evidence of universal brotherhood in our day-to-day living. But to do so may require that you and I make greater efforts to understand more of our immortal natures.

God is the one Father-Mother Mind, and this Mind is the creator of man. Man's relationship with Mind is spiritual, concordant, and every aspect of his being expresses this relationship. Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health, "Love, the divine Principle, is the Father and Mother of the universe, including man." Science and Health, p. 256; And in another place our Leader says, "God is the parent Mind, and man is God's spiritual offspring." ibid., p. 336;

As we truly cherish this fact, we grow in our ability to understand our immortal nature, and we come to know the steps we can take each day to further express that nature. As our immortality becomes clearer to us, the belief of being one mortal among many striving mortals disappears.
