Being the best means being Godlike. It means being one's true self, what God has already created one to be as His perfect emanation.
Mediocrity, second best, make-do, are no part of divine Mind's creation, because they are no part of Mind. Mind is perfect, All, and man expresses Mind's perfection. Mrs. Eddy writes, "The Ego-man is the reflection of the Ego-God; the Ego-man is the image and likeness of perfect Mind, Spirit, divine Principle."Science and Health, p. 281;
God is the infinite One, without a rival or equal. Infinite Spirit is all presence, all activity, omniscient. It is God's eternal purpose for each of His ideas to show forth His unequaled and unparalleled magnificence. As God's reflection, man expresses the unsurpassed beauty of Soul, the incomparable understanding of Truth, the all-encompassing love of Love, the inexhaustible energy of Life, the indisputable integrity of Principle, and the immeasurable strength of Spirit. Man expresses all the attributes of Mind without interruption or limitation.
