Prosperity Mental

Christian Science shows that in reality there exists simultaneously with spiritual man complete supply for his every need. Change of location, then, does not augment supply; nor is any intermediate circumstance necessary to the realization of the truth. Man's source of supply is God, eternally and invariably present where man is. But to see this spiritual fact in any measure demonstrated in human experience requires spiritual growth, through practice of the teachings of Christian Science, into harmony with which one must come before problems can be scientifically solved. It would seem that the question of lack, of poverty in its many forms, is quite as prevalent a source of trouble as is sickness. Certainly, poverty is opposed to God's nature and law, which law for man is abundance, freedom, confidence, peace, activity, usefulness, success.

In "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 307) Mrs. Eddy has made this statement: "God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies." What are God's ideas? How can they give us daily supplies? Are not wisdom, confidence, honesty, good judgment, diligence, resourcefulness, alertness, ability, dominion, some of God's qualities or ideas? Could one constantly manifest all of these and at the same time experience lack and discouragement? This would not be possible. The consciousness reflecting such qualities could not be expressing their opposites.

Our business is to receive these spiritual ideas, and to cast out by denial the fears and apprehensions which claim to be keeping them out of our thought; then these ideas, entertained, will give us daily supplies. In other words, human existence being the visible expression of human thinking, its inharmonies will cease with the cessation of the thinking which produces them. Thus the attainment of freedom from lack is definitely a mental process, which, as in all other departments of Christian Science, leads to right human activity.
