The right definition of ourselves

To define ourselves rightly is crucial. It affects our lives, careers, relationships, health. To define ourselves and others as mortal is a mistake, and a destructive one. But to draw our view of man from Christian Science is healing and reformational. The scientific truth is we're defined—formed and caused—by God, immortal Spirit.

Until we adopt a spiritually scientific sense of God and man we define ourselves inadequately or wrongly. We don't question the picture the mortal senses give of us. We believe we're defined by such things as physical appearance, job, race, wealth, physique, sex. We believe we're analyzable by psychology and medicine. Looking at ourselves in such ways, we define others wrongly too.
