Real indestructibility

Some years back a major earthquake hit Mexico City. Amazingly, many newborns at a central hospital that collapsed survived for days beneath mountains of rubble before rescuers finally reached them (see The New York Times, October 16, 1985). Without diminishing the heroic efforts of first responders, perhaps the survival of those infants hints at the strength of innocence, the power of purity. 

There is something enduring, even something unerasable, about the nature of each one of us as the likeness of God, pure Mind. We are each the perfect idea of that perfect and indestructible Mind. 

Think of a steel beam. It may seem indestructible. Yet the idea of that beam is even more enduring. Drop explosives on that beam and it may be obliterated. Drop explosives on the idea of that beam, and the idea remains untouched.
