“There is but one creator and one creation. This creation consists of the unfolding of spiritual ideas and their identities, which are embraced in the infinite Mind and forever reflected.” (Science and Health, page 502-503)
God’s creation is a boundless universe of brilliant ideas—individual and unique and eternal. Each one of us is a specific thought, purposefully conceived by God. Our lives express the creativity which is God’s eternal abundance. So, the divine Life unfolds new opportunities, adventures, joys, growth, every new day and each new year of our experience.
This unfoldment is not new creation. It is not subject to chance and circumstance or to the ingenuity or ignorance of men. God made all and made it good. He created the beautiful individual identity that you are and with it the beautiful life that you are worthy to live. This Life isn’t your creation. It is already done. Its completeness is not some fate you must live with, but a powerful opportunity to surrender to abundance, perfection, rightness, progress, peace, happiness.
For our Father-Mother already knows the outcome of things. He knows that what He made and saw to be perfect, forever remains this way. What this leaves us with is the great joy and necessity of seeing a bit more of that fullness each day, prepared especially for us.
Walk forward expectantly into each day as more of God’s ideal for your brilliant life is revealed—as fears and doubts and limits are lifted to show what has already been there: creation made by God and made to reflect His glory through you.
And, blessedly, each of God’s ideas is safe in its perfect identity. We are embraced, hugged close and loved, within the thought of God, within Love’s Life and Life’s Love.
