The fullness of our dominion

From the April 2017 issue of The Christian Science Journal

What is the nature of our true spiritual being, which is always at hand for us to discern and demonstrate? 

Whenever I delve into thinking about this, about what we truly are, I just get blown away. (I’m not new to this kind of thinking, either!) My amazement must be similar to the wonder and awe the Psalmist felt when he asked the same basic question and then received his answer: 

“O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.… When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; what is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet” (Psalms 8:1, 3–6).
