“Know thyself, and God will supply the wisdom and the occasion for a victory over evil.” (Science and Health, page 571)
What does it mean to know ourselves? And what does it take to really do this and be ready for wisdom and that sweet opportunity for victory?
Well, in Truth, it begins with knowing God. It is by knowing our Creator and His Mind better that we are able to become clearer on who we really are and what is right for us. Perceiving and accepting God as the Source of our Life and His nature (goodness, intelligence, love) as ours to express, we can begin to set aside the limits on who we believe we are and claim and live the reality of who we truly are.
In this discovery, we can’t leave out individual self-awareness. We must let God’s light reveal to us what doesn’t jibe with His true vision—that unreal and unnecessary view that includes fear and anger and self-doubt and material limit. We need to take that conscious pause to recognize what really doesn’t suit our magnificence, and to let it go, to give it up because it isn’t God-given, so it isn’t truly ours at all.
Likewise, when we honestly and intentionally delve into our own being and thinking, we can also come to discover and to love ourselves for just who we are. We may begin to see that those qualities that we belittle about ourselves, actually express God in a very special and precious way—one worth celebrating, not hiding or condemning.
Get to know yourself. Relish the opportunity to get acquainted with God’s child. Seek and find without fear. You are amazing and the sooner you get to realizing that and to being your best and truest self, the sooner that great victory over evil, discord, and limits will come, so naturally and beautifully!
