“As a drop of water is one with the ocean, a ray of light one with the sun, even so God and man, Father and son, are one in being. The Scripture reads: ‘For in Him we live, and move, and have our being.’ ” (Science and Health, page 361)
Just imagine being as beautiful as an ocean and as bright as the sun. Just imagine living as broadly and as magnificently as the blanket of stars that make up a clear night sky. Your imagination has merely touched upon the ideal glory that you achieve now and eternally in reality, as the very idea of God.
God’s infinite being is incomplete without your presence and your presence is never anything but the very expression of His entireness, His infinite quality, His awesome splendor. The scriptural promise is ours to recognize and live. Being a drop of water in the ocean is not a loss of you, but a discovery of your infinite identity, always full in the fullness, necessary to God’s wholeness, and having the very same quality as the broader idea, the full expanse of goodness.
And so, you cannot ever lose any good quality, for you are the expression of it, not the owner of it. The ray of the sun is not in control, and yet it never leaves the sun and always effortlessly expresses the sun’s nature—light, warmth, beauty. The substance of the universe is God, good, Love. This is our being, infinite in measure and always superior in our ability to inspire and to be inspired.
