We all measure up
As we go about our daily routines, sometimes we might find ourselves taken for granted or left out of someone else’s plans. For a lot of people, feelings of inadequacy account for too many nights spent ruminating or worrying that we truly aren’t important in this world. We might guess that we don’t measure up to other people, or to what we assume other people expect from us.
Recently I was reading one of my favorite books, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, that includes a definition of I, or Ego that refers to the name and nature of God: “Divine Principle; Spirit; Soul; incorporeal, unerring, immortal, and eternal Mind.” Mrs. Eddy continues, “There is but one I, or Us, but one divine Principle, or Mind, governing all existence; man and woman unchanged forever in their individual characters, even as numbers which never blend with each other, though they are governed by one Principle” (p. 588). This tells us that we are not only inseparable from God—but that as His expressions, we are also inseparable from one another!
