“Identity is the reflection of Spirit, the reflection in multifarious forms of the living Principle, Love.” (Science and Health, page 477)
Do you know who you are? Do you really see what makes you up and why it is so uniquely wonderful? Our identity is not personality or physicality. We are not that small and limited. We are not confined to an age and a gender and a type and a history. We are not the result of heredity or environment.
Your identity is the very expression of the infinite Spirit, of God whose purpose and action and substance is Love. Divine Love is the reason for your being. It is why you were caused and why God preserves your sweet self with such great care and devotion. The idea that is you is a demonstration of His Love. It makes His name heard everywhere, and in infinite ways.
We can stop the intense search into our background and analysis of our character traits and their limits and strengths. We can instead be consciously aware of our true identity, that which reflects Love, that “living” Principle, that which is always active and real and eternal in spite of what the senses might present. Know yourself by knowing God and the nature and broadness of His Love. Each idea is precious and each has its unique identity, an individuality based in Spirit, not in matter. Each of the “forms” that God made proceed from this loving Principle. All are of the same perfect substance, made to harmonize with one another, and yet each having its own unique radiance, continuity, purpose, and beauty.
