Truth's penetration of the city

Look out from the tallest building in the city of Boston, and on a clear day you can see right over it and its suburbs to New Hampshire and Rhode Island. You see the harbor and airport installations, the factories, churches, shops and offices, parks and highways, and—hundreds of thousands of houses and apartments. Metropolitan Boston is "home" to nearly three million people, and these people are more important than anything else in the whole city. It would be nothing without them.

How good it is to remember this: that all the people of your city—any city—are important. They are important to the community as a whole and to each other. Above all, in their true, spiritual being, they are important to God. Each individual is known to God and is cherished by Him. In God's sight every one is a complete, perfect reflection of Life—whole, active, and at peace. All are rich in Spirit, conscious of being the loved of Love. Each manifests the qualities of Mind in intelligence, and of Soul in spirituality. He loves and is governed by Principle and is at one with Truth.
