“Man’s individuality is not material.” (Science and Health, page 285)
Who am I? What is it that makes me special? What defines my individuality and sets me apart?
We may believe the answer to these questions is about our physical appearance and characteristics. We might identify with certain personality traits or life experiences, ancestry, heredity. We may think of ourselves as being one type of person, having a certain temperament. Perhaps we associate ourselves with race, gender, or cultural or religious upbringing or preferences.
While all these things may seem to play a part in how we appear to others and act in the world, these are not our true individuality. That specific nature is much greater and more beautiful and precious and unique than a mere material description could ever provide.
Our individuality is spiritual. We are built of God’s qualities, expressed in a way that is unlike any other, and which is untouched by material conditions or classifications. Our glorious identity is what God sees of us and how He sees it. We are His delight and there is no definition of us that can be confined to a mere material depiction. Your spiritual individuality is that immortal nature that is made of the colors of divine Life, the textures of infinite Spirit, the glory of Love’s joy revealed.
Get to know who you are. Look to God for His gorgeous portrait of you. Look away from matter to Spirit, to that higher perspective, and you will find a truer individuality, one that is unlike any other and that feels genuine, comfortable, real, right, expansive, and natural.
