The mirror of divine Science

It had been a frustrating day. Nothing seemed to go right; nothing had for several days. I walked out of my office in an effort to escape the inharmonious environment. "Why me?" I exclaimed, walking down the hall. Turning a corner, I approached a fulllength mirror. My disturbed mood, evident in my reflection, startled me. But then I recognized this to be an erroneous image, not a reflection of what I knew to be true about myself.

Returning to my office, I shut the door and reached for a book always kept handy for use. It was the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health, by Mrs. Eddy. After I had read for a while, the following statement stood out: "Now compare man before the mirror to his divine Principle, God. Call the mirror divine Science, and call man the reflection. Then note how true, according to Christian Science, is the reflection to its original. As the reflection of yourself appears in the mirror, so you, being spiritual, are the reflection of God." Science and Health, pp. 515-516.
