Meta. The individual's awakening to the truth of his real being, to the fact that in his real, true self he is spiritual, was made in the image and likeness of God, and is endowed with all the possibilities that can be attained through the use of his spiritual powers: life, love, wisdom, intelligence, faith, strength, power, substance, all that is contained in the Son, the Christ, Jehovah, I AM (who is like unto Jehovah?).
