“Love never loses sight of loveliness. Its halo rests upon its object.” (Science and Health, page 248)
We are holy because we are loved by Love. We are made magnificent and blessed and protected by the Father-Mother’s affection and approval. Her spiritual love for us is our sanctity, our wholeness, our ability to show forth the glory that belongs to the divine nature. God’s constant eye on us is that tender regard that makes us always beautiful, just as a loved one is always lovely to us; just as receiving the love of another makes us feel more adorable, more like ourselves.
God’s halo rests upon us. Accept its presence. Know who you are, what divine Love has caused you to be. You have a natural hue of holiness about you. Bathed in God’s light, ordained by His approving smile, you have an angelic presence and power. You have a gentle energy and a natural authority. You walk with God’s blessing on you, your hand always in His, your life the effortless expression of the love He has for you, His own great idea.
Don’t let anyone try to knock your halo off! Don’t accept a lesser image of yourself than God, Truth, sees. Don’t take your own halo off, either or reject it. You can keep it on and still be humble, for you didn’t put it there, God and His love did. So wear it as you would a gift from a loved one—with gratitude, proudly, and with an awareness that it is fitting, right, and yours to keep!
