Mrs. Eddy makes perfect God and perfect man the inspiring starting point in Christian Science practice. While we may concede that man is spiritual and perfect, we are inclined to think of him as a vapory creature somewhere away in the clouds, instead of recognizing that he is here and now the everpresent representation of the Almighty. Indeed this perfect man, this man of divine intelligence and imperishable Life, this man with a world of opportunity and usefulness stretching out before him, is none other than yourself, your true self.
Keep in mind, when reading about spiritual man or immortal man or the image and likeness of God, that you are reading about yourself. Remember that when a Christian Scientist, in his attempt to break some dream of suffering, is talking to you of the perfect man, he is speaking of you.
