God holds us up
In giving up a sense of personal ego, we can lean on the sustaining power of God.
It was a lovely, sunny afternoon, and I had gone out for a walk. That particular afternoon I was feeling quite pleased with myself and with all the good I had accomplished that morning. Suddenly, as though someone else were speaking, a clear thought sounded in my consciousness: "You wouldn't even be able to take this walk, if I weren't holding you up."
Instantly I recognized this statement as an angel thought from God. In Science and Health Mrs. Eddy speaks of God as the only I, or Us. She writes, "There is but one I, or Us, but one divine Principle, or Mind, governing all existence ..." (p. 588). How clear the message was that I should drop, absolutely drop, the belief that I could do anything of myself, and lean more consistently, more steadfastly, on God, divine Principle, as the very "I"—the life and intelligence—of my being. All real activity, indeed everything we genuinely are, is simply the outcome of all that God is doing and expressing in His idea, spiritual man, our true and only identity.
