Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all
thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This
is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto
it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (Matt 22:37?39)
As a sense-oriented kind of man, I see
only shadows of my neighbor and myself. Every picture in my thought
is governed by mortal mind, the one enemy, entertaining the law
of opposites. But if man is the highest idea of God, including
all right ideas, being at-one with Father-Mother, is it
not true that when I see past the counterfeit, I see God face
to face, and, therefore, my neighbor and myself as I am?
That is why to "love thy neighbor as thyself" is equal
to, or identical to, loving "the Lord thy God with all thy
heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind."
The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals
the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to
God, - a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love.
(SH 1:1, emphasis added)
