Losing labels, finding ourselves

Mother, female, American, Christian Scientist—all these labels might describe someone. But do they? They may conjure up generalizations or assumptions, but they don’t encompass the wholeness of spiritual individuality, which we can come to see as our only true label. As one of this week’s feature articles, “Relationship status: Loved by God,” states, focusing on dropping limiting human labels about ourselves and others can help us find freedom and healing. 

The foundation for understanding that each of us has a spiritual identity is understanding the true nature of God, divine Principle. Spiritual individuality, as Christian Science shows, is the divine nature of our spiritual being. It doesn’t fluctuate, and it is not at the mercy of personality, heredity, or past experiences. Understanding our spiritual individuality makes us see the truth of our being—it peels off the layers of what appears to be a material, mortal existence to reveal the beauty of what we really are and always have been.
