“Identity is the reflection of Spirit, the reflection in multifarious forms of the living Principle, Love.” (Science and Health, page 477)
Who am I? Who are you? We are the very reflection of Spirit. This is our identity, the truth of us, our nature and essence. Nothing about Spirit is bound up in personality and limits of physicality or physiology. Our identity isn’t a combination of genes or environment. We are the very expression of Spirit’s infinite ideal.
God has formed us out of His own qualities. We are an expression of all that He is and that He loves. Our identity is individual and original, but it always complies with the original Principle. This is a given, a guarantee, and our reliance. This fact of your real heritage makes you amazing, of a character beyond compare and yet always reiterating the original Principle.
That Principle is Love. And it is “living” Love, a law of Being that stands forever immutable, and yet moves, expresses, acts. Our identity is that which is the necessary expression of a Principle that is alive, that is Life. And that wonderful Life that we are living and being is always and only Love. You are made of Love and made to Love. And since this divine Love has infinite ways of being expressed, God has made infinite ideas—you and me and all—to do this.
Who am I and who are you? We are Love’s intention carried out, alive, active, and always and now just right.
