“As a drop of water is one with the ocean, a ray of light one with the sun, even so God and man, Father and son, are one in being.” (Science and Health, page 361)
We can luxuriate in these wonderful thoughts! We can gratefully and willingly bask in the Truth that we are one with God, with the divine Life and Love that is infinite, that is wise, that is eternal goodness and perpetually complete.
The ego sure wants to believe that we are out on our own, making our way, in control of our own destinies, for good or for bad, and at odds with others. This puts a lot on the shoulders of a mortal, of one individual with limited information and lots of distractions.
But this separate mind and sense of life to which the ego holds so tightly is not in the pilot’s seat. We are at one with God, and, as the images in the quote describe, we consist of God’s very qualities as well. We are not only in the path of God’s light, but an aspect of its glow. We aren’t the source itself, but we are its expression, naturally. We are not an ocean’s expanse, but we are evidence of its clarity, freshness, and freedom.
We are inseparable from God’s ever-presence, a part of this infinite goodness. And while we are each unique, we are of an equal nature and relation with God and with all the other drops in that ocean, united in that vast yet beautiful sea of God’s creation and of His good and loving Life.
