“I AM. God; incorporeal and eternal Mind; divine Principle; the only Ego.” (Science and Health, page 588)
The one Ego is God. Every sentence must in Truth begin with God’s pronoun and action. “I AM” is that forever present tense sense of Life, proceeding from the one great and only thinker, the only actor and action. This is the divine Principle by which all reality must be recognized and practiced. We cannot gain an honest perspective if we start from a wrong premise.
Separate egos, individual personalities, opinions, and perspectives must yield to the fact of Mind, the one and only perfect Ego. All identities and expressions belong to the Mind of God. His pure and perfect awareness of Himself is the state of all being. What He conceives and what He knows is Life as it truly is. This is not a loss of self, but a discovery of it. We find ourselves to be under the control of God’s clear thought, His perfect motive, and so we are always right and at peace.
We can find our own individual truth, but we must begin with the I AM, start by claiming only the Ego that can know and announce holiness. This right Mind cannot say or feel that “I AM” sick or sinful, fearful and discouraged, lonely or depressed. The I AM which is God states the condition of all Life, our Life. Any sentence beginning with His name must conclude with His expressed object, man as the loved ideal of Himself, never separate from Him and always under His loving and satisfied control.
