Our media today is saturated with individualism, telling us that we are small bits of materialism scattered around the globe. This is furthered by the thought that somewhere in this small clay vessel called body, exists a little bit of spirit or God. Jesus talks about removing an ¨unclean spirit¨ from a man which some people believe gives further proof of “evil” roaming among us and waiting to live inside us.
A healthier way to think of humanity is as one, never separated into small bits of earth and never apart. When two people look into the same mirror, are they still separate? No because it is ONE reflection of two people. The picture presented is completeness. Can the image in the mirror do what it wants? No, it can only do what the reflector does. Imagine if all creation was simply a reflection of something big and wonderful, something called Love. If we could see ourselves as a reflection of Love, how would that change our view of our bodies?
What if Man is one entity reflected from that bigger standpoint of Love. Then who am I? can be answered firstly only in relation to your fellow man and only in relation to Love. It also means everything you do, is what the reflector does, and Love is reflected in Love as Mrs Eddy tells us in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.
She further says:
Paul said, “Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” Sooner or later we shall learn that the fetters of man’s finite capacity are forged by the illusion that he lives in body instead of in Soul, in matter instead of in Spirit.
its such a pity that so many of of think we are leading a life apart from a God which we turn to only when we feel we have a moment to “walk in the spirit”. What if every action we do was seen as an unfolding of Love. For example: Imagine you hold resentment because your friend never buys you a drink at the coffee shop and you find yourself paying for everything, worrying about your bank account. What if you knew that act of kindness was the natural “you”, the reflection of that thing called ” Love”. Imagine if every action was like that and you were able to trust that feeling.
So today, we can learn a few things, its not a case that your body is slowly moving on and you may or may not be healed, you are free now, from any thoughts of sickness or negativity which try to say they are also part of that reflection of completeness and Love. It is not the case that the body “eventually” comes to an understanding of this as there is no body or brain to understand anything. No timescale to go through and indeed no material body to honor, There is only eternity, always bathing in the light of understanding of infinity. That is now, always was and always will be who you are.
As God´s reflection, you are perfect and whole,
