True individuality is complete

From the December 1983 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In Christian Science we learn to view ourselves and others not as mortals, frustrated and incomplete, but as divine ideas of God, satisfied and complete.

True identity partakes only of the divine elements of being. It is wholly good—not an amalgamation of good and evil, Spirit and the flesh. It represents the spiritual nature of God, good. The understanding and progressive demonstration of this true selfhood break up and destroy the destructive and limiting so-called laws of mortal mind and matter.

Health, happiness, completeness, and all other spiritual qualities of God are in no way dependent upon or adversely affected by matter. Every spiritual quality of God is intact. The self-complete and self-contained creator and His expression, man and the universe, constitute the totality of being. No other being exists. Qualitatively, each one of us in reality reflects all the completeness there is.
