Supply is a term which comprehends all that God, Spirit, imparts to man and the universe. It stands for the full manifestation of God, infinite Being. In "Retrospection and Introspection" (p. 56) Mrs. Eddy states that "all consciousness is Mind, and Mind is God. Hence there is but one Mind; and that one is the infinite good, supplying all Mind by the reflection, not the subdivision, of God." Man is the evidence of Love's infinitude.
Paul speaks of "the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ." Filled to overflowing with selfless love and the clear vision supplied to him by infinite Mind, Christ Jesus never quailed before any task and never failed in its execution. He was certain that nothing could intercept or interfere with his demonstration of supply either for himself or for others. By contrast, one may perhaps hang his head, acutely conscious that the love and loyalty which characterized the Way-shower seem as yet conspicuously absent in him. Then let him lift his thought Spiritward, for "the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ" is shed over all creation. There is unfailing inspiration, health, purity, for all. Man is the evidence of Mind. Because there is no lack in real consciousness there is no consciousness of lack.
Since nothing temporal is known to the eternal God, how is it that, as our Leader says (No and Yes, p. 42), "The divine Spirit supplies all human needs"? It is because supply is made humanly evident by means of spiritual understanding, and Spirit supplies this understanding. Truth purges human thought of its mistiness and so opens the way for the appearing of Mind's spiritual creation. Every case of sin overcome, of disease destroyed, of indebtedness cleared, points to the power of good which is demonstrable here and now by one and all. The spiritual understanding of Love and its abundant manifestation is the certain antidote for human perplexity and woe. Man as God's image is never insolvent because he reflects infinite Love, and in this reflection there is no debt and no debtor.
