“Mortals are egotists. They believe themselves to be independent workers, personal authors, and even privileged originators of something which Deity would not and could not create.” (Science and Health, page 263)
God is the only Ego, the one and only Originator of all life, all action, all expression. Mortal man is not a personal activator or perpetuator of anything. Creation is an activity that belongs exclusively to God, to perfect good, to divine Spirit, to Love. The limited sense of independent minds can’t for a moment either recreate or destroy what the infinite divine Mind has already perfectly defined and designed.
It is egotistical to believe that we create our world and that we can also, by our behavior or thoughts, destroy it. Are we greater than God? Are we almighty? Is the limited belief able to redo or undo what the limitless Mind has already wonderfully done? We have a reliable Creator Who would only create the right, the good, and the true. We can leave it to Him, and leave the arrogant mortal mind out of the question altogether.
All the beautiful and inspired things that would appear in our lives are made by Him. We may feel that we have created a piece of art or come up with a good idea, but we have the true privilege of being the recipients of these gifts, these blessings that enrich us so naturally and so can’t help but do the same for others. Rest in the fact that humility is our true state of being and it is also that very quality that causes us to thrive, grateful that all we have comes as a graceful and lasting gift of Love.
