“Man is by no means a material germ rising from the imperfect and endeavoring to reach Spirit above his origin.” (Science and Health, page 246)
You are not a speck of material potential waiting for growth, your big break, and some validation in the human experience. You are more than this. And it has to do with your starting point. Because we are truly born of God, good, Spirit, and not of matter, we begin in completeness and expand simply in our awareness of that.
Spiritual perfection is not something out of reach for us. It is the very essence of our being. We are not a material germ needing material watering to bring us to fruition and beauty and peace. We began as a conception of God, an idea fully formed of His qualities and already meeting His standards of excellence. Our origin is Spirit, so it is the very substance of our being. We must live and move and thrive according to this flawless premise. We must accept the truth of our nature and its fully-formed goodness.
Matter can never be spirit. A material man will never be a spiritual one. There is really only one man or woman here and that is the spiritual one, the true one, the one who is at the point of excellence and knows it. This is you. Don’t accept a lesser, false sense of yourself, an imposter. You are not a germ hoping to flower. You are the very complete bloom of God’s own beautiful ideal. Accept this fact and live accordingly!
