“Remember that man’s perfection is real and unimpeachable, whereas imperfection is blameworthy, unreal, and is not brought about by divine Love.” (Science and Health, page 414)
Your perfection is unimpeachable! Your sustained flawlessness is “above suspicion, impossible to discredit; impeccable.” Nothing and no one can challenge the truth about you or negate the reality of your perfection. Your wonderful nature is beyond reproach and without a single weakness to bring your life crashing down.
Remember this, Mrs. Eddy advises us in this passage. Keep this thought of your reflected perfection near in thought. Let it replace those voices that would argue for guilt, shame, flaws of character and of body. Divine Love neither creates mistakes and vulnerabilities nor does this Love allow them to continue to accuse innocence.
Your perfection is real. Do not forget this. It is not mere human perfection, so it can’t be subject to human qualification and conditions. It is a perfection that is divine, that is given to us by God, and is claimed not through forced behavior or punishment, but by humble acceptance.
We can replace a personal sense of self, always subject to analysis and review, and take hold of the Truth of ourselves–the lovely and happy idea that is settled in perfectness, God’s own unimpeachable Life shining forth as the flawless and saving light of His own pure Love.
