“Love, the divine Principle, is the Father and Mother of the universe, including man.” (Science and Health, page 256)
The parent of all creation is God. The Source and active Principle of the universe is God, perfect good. This Father-Mother gave birth to you and to all, and His substance endures as the very quality and nature of each one of us. We were born of this perfect Principle, this brilliant intention, and the whole of all Life proceeds from this one and only creative power.
Our Father-Mother is Love itself. We were created by Love, of Love, and for Love. No idea in the universe was caused by anything less than divine Love. You are the child of Love’s holy purpose and Love’s expansive glory. You are constantly being fathered and mothered by the very quality of perfect Love. This is both your origin and your destiny–to be the living child of Love.
And you have countless brothers and sisters, also born of Love, of the common Principle that underlies all creation. We are all equally rejoiced over by this Mother. We are all guarded by this Father. Love’s infinite facets—kindness, understanding, mercy, forgiveness, comfort, laughter, assurance, uplift, safety, tenderness—are always being expressed toward you and through you. You were born to bless and be blessed, loved among the loved. Realize yourself to be the very son and daughter of divine Love and the recipient and proof of all that means!
