“Man is idea, the image, of Love; he is not physique.” (Science and Health, page 475)
The structure of a physical body and the form in which it appears is not your identity. That limiting concept belittles God and the magnificent idea He created called man—you and me.
God is Mind and Spirit. His image is not physical, not built of material things. Man is the very idea of God’s Love expressed. The very substance of our being is divine Love, so it is limitless, deathless, painless, comfortable, strong, peaceful, harmonious. You are not what you look like any more than you are what you eat or what you put on your body.
Man is an idea; and he is not a human idea, but a thought of Love, God. You are a pure idea conceived by the divine Mind to express His vision, His intelligence, His infinitude, His beauty, Life, and Love.
You are not confined to a physical appearance or stuck in a material vessel. You are unconfined Life and Love. You are uniquely you because you are the expression of God’s precise and specific Love for you. This defines your being. His Love for you is each brushstroke in your portrait, and the result is a masterpiece—perfect, unfettered, colorful, lovely, inspired, and inspiring.
