“In obedience to the divine nature, man’s individuality reflects the divine law and order of being. How shall we reach our true selves? Through Love.” (Miscellaneous Writings, page 104)
How often do we approach an understanding of ourselves through Love? Isn’t it more often that we delve into discovery with a judgmental attitude, self-condemnation, analysis, or self-justification. Our real nature and being, that individuality that God created and expresses non-stop, can’t fully shine without Love’s light awakening it.
This Love Mrs. Eddy talks about is God, divine Love. His tender and powerful Principle keeps our real identity preserved in its true form, as the very reflection and beloved of the greatest Love there is. The real you is always embraced in that divine Love, and remains intact and beautiful and right and lovable within that gentle place. We can’t help but be who God made us to be, and there is no power that can barge through God and muck up that good and lovely identity.
So, let us approach this full knowledge of ourselves in the only way that has any Truth or power to it. Let us love our way to knowing ourselves. Let us look to our sweet child heart and embrace it with the tender, merciful sweetness we deserve. Let us discover who we really are, and do it now. There is nothing to be afraid of, no demon to find there, only divine Love’s adored idea, the one who was, is, and ever will be innocent, powerful, right, and free.
