“Deity was satisfied with His work. How could He be otherwise, since the spiritual creation was the outgrowth, the emanation, of His infinite self-containment and immortal wisdom?” (Science and Health, page 519)
God needed no “do-over.” He was and is fully satisfied. He didn’t make a mistake or bring into life something that was not up to His standards. The substance of God, His creative Principle and His perfect loving Mind, has nothing to draw from but perfection. There is no other possibility for the outcome than for it to be just-right.
If an artist were to have clay as his medium, the sculpture would necessarily be made of clay. The apple tree produces apples, not peaches. The source and substance guarantees a certain result. The creation of God, Spirit, could only be the very expression of His own contents, His own nature, His own quality and intelligence. God’s man is just what you would expect from infinite wisdom and perfect Love.
We are indeed the very radiance of God’s sunlight of Truth. We satisfy Him fully because we are exactly what He intended and can be nothing else. Everything He loves is in us and remains there for His constant pleasure and joy, and so that His own nature is fully revealed. God’s “infinite self-containment” includes a completeness wherein everything is perfectly right, necessary, and the proof of that glorious Principle that is Love.

This brings to mind that quote at the beginning of the chapter “Creation” — “Mortal man has made a covenant with his eyes to belittle Deity with human conceptions.”
Oh, yes, I do love that quote! Thanks, Amy.
