Supply

I read an interesting article which really helped me to understand that supply is spiritual and is actually a law and natural part of being.  It’s called Supply as Spiritual Reflection.

The most important thing for me to realize is that supply doesn’t come from a job, it actually comes from God.  A job is just a manifestation of supply, or God taking care of us. But the source is always the same – God.  When I realized that, supply was able to come into my experience in a number of ways that I wouldn’t have expected or perhaps even recognized or been truly grateful for.  Friends, church members, and family members have naturally given us food, sporting goods, clothing, books, furniture of their own accord.

Realizing that supply is so much broader than a paycheck has really helped me to see the fullness of supply and all the ways that supply is present.  Perhaps it is the supply of ideas for an assignment or creativity in your business or artwork or ideas and inspiration if you’re looking for spiritual healing.

Supply is a natural and normal part of our being and existence and because God is it’s source, there can’t be any lack since God is infinite, unlimited, endless good.  Also since God doesn’t know time, God doesn’t see supply here today and gone tomorrow.  It is ever the same constant and consistent.

Another idea the article talks about is that it’s not my supply or your supply, it’s simply supply.  Just like it’s not my sun or your sun, it’s the sun.  We all have the same supply, and therefore the same access to supply.  Supply is based on our reflection of God.  Man is more than the recipient of good, man is the expression of good.  So if we go out with the motive and mindset of expressing God, divine Mind, Soul, Love, we never have to fear any lack.  We will have all that we need.

Supply is as normal and natural as the leaves changing in the Fall.  Instead of dreading paying for things, we can realize that trading money for a service or a product is simply the expression of gratitude.  And we can rejoice in giving gratitude as well as joyfully accepting when people see our value and give gratitude to us.

True Man

Who are what is man and what is man’s purpose?

Well, man is the son and daughter of God.  God created man to express Himself, to glorify Himself.  To do so, God created man in His image and likeness (Gen. 26:1).  Therefore, man has the mind of God (Phil. 2:5), the motive of God, the will of God leading, guiding and directing him.  Man can’t have an action or activity separate from God.  Man is lead and governed by good alone, since God is good.  Man is impelled by Spirit which is above and beyond the earth and, therefore, limitation.

Who or when is this man?  This man is now, right now, the only real and true man.  God created only one man, not two (one to be immortal and one to be destroyed).  No, the immortal, eternal and spiritual man is the only man that there is right now.  And we can live this in our lives and we can see this and express this in others.

Prayer

As I was reading and studying the Bible along with Science and Health this morning, I realized that prayer is an absolute benefit to us.  What I mean by this is that prayer doesn’t change God; it doesn’t change God’s action or God’s will, and it doesn’t bring God down to us.

Prayer lifts us up to God.  God already sees and knows perfection.  He/She sees and knows its perfect creation as flawless, spiritual and immortal.

In the chapter entitled Prayer in the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (by Mary Baker Eddy), it states:

Prayer cannot change the Science of being, but it tends to bring us into harmony with it. (pg. 2:15)

I find such comfort in this statement.  And it helps me ask myself more clearly, why would I let anything stop me from praying?  Why would I not find the time or not feel like it when I know it is only blessing me and lifting me up?  In this world we find time to do the things that are good for us and that make us feel good – going to the gym, eating healthy, researching and doing new things.

But prayer absolutely lifts us up higher than any of these things can.  It makes us feel at peace, and have less stress and worry.  This of course impacts our health as well as our interactions with our family and relationships. Prayer opens up our thought to new ideas and opportunities which affects our business endeavors and life purpose.  This makes us feel more fulfilled, a greater sense of self-worth and value, and results in more consistent supply.

So why wouldn’t we pray?  Prayer is going to open us up to more of God’s perfection; seeing and knowing Him/Her more clearly and with more understanding.  Prayer will absolutely not change God; it won’t make Him act differently, or think differently, and it won’t make him “do” anything He wasn’t already doing.

So let’s not cheat ourselves out of what is going to benefit us most greatly, along with blessing the rest of the world.  Let’s find that time to sit, be still, listen, read the Bible, Science and Health or other spiritual writings.  And this will greatly benefit us, bless us, and lift us up (our thought, our consciousness) to behold and see God.
