A question of self

Narcissus, according to the Greeks, was doomed by a goddess—as a punishment—to fall in love with his own image, which he saw reflected in a spring. He pined away. (A very perceptive legend!)

Today "narcissist" is a term for someone with an overconcern for himself. Such an individual, Christian Science says, is passing up the opportunity of learning of his real identity. This identity is Godlike and spiritual, not mortally personal.
