62 — WATCH lest in making one perfect square, you believe that you are doing all that God expects of you. There are bed quilts that are made by fastening together knitted squares. After you have made one individual perfect square, or have seen yourself as God’s perfect foursquare man, you must extend this recognition to all mankind, until you see them all perfect — bound together as one great family of God’s perfect ideas. This effort alone fulfills the command, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
This effort might be called the reduplication or extension of your idea of man as God’s perfect child. When you see all of God’s children linked together in one harmonious spiritual family, this causes your consciousness to act like a spiritual comforter, which you can throw upon mortals, and with which you can heal them with the warmth of divine Love, thus lifting ‚their lives higher than their poor thought-models would allow,‛ as Science and Health says.
