“TEMPLE. Body; the idea of Life, substance, and intelligence; the superstructure of Truth; the shrine of Love…” (Science and Health, page 595)
Let’s treat the temple with respect. Let’s revere that right idea of Life, that pure and perfect spiritual substance, which expresses God’s sacred ideal. We can recognize and enter into that true temple, that real sense of body that is not physical, but is the truth of our being.
Honor this place of intelligence, beauty and Love. Know that right where you are, everything that you express is the right and orderly and lovely representation of all that is whole and holy. Treat your body appropriately. Embrace it as the very image of God’s purpose, as the accurate expression of all that He has seen fit to show forth in order that His own glory is known. Love the body, for it is not yours to defile or to disrespect, but God’s own idea to cherish.
The body is spiritual. It is composed of God’s sacred thoughts and it is a place of harmony, peace, comfort. There is nothing harmful or disquieting about this temple. There is nothing to despise and everything to rejoice over. We are forever at one with this “shrine of Love.” We are always within this “superstructure of Truth.” We are established and at home in this holy place, God’s true temple, our oneness with God and all that He is and all that He loves.
