Supply and Demand Inseparable
Many economists admit that in human affairs supply is equal to demand. But they claim that, because of faulty distribution, supply and demand are so divorced that in practice they are continually out of balance.
Students of Christian Science, however, refuse to accept as conclusive theories and practices based upon the evidence of material sense-testimony. They realize that such erroneous conditions as poverty, unemployment, maladjustment, and faulty distribution originate in limited mortal thinking and can be corrected by divinely scientific thinking. When confronted by such problems, they are learning to enter into the quiet sanctuary of prayer and shut the door of consciousness upon the disturbing illusion of mortal mind, in accordance with the Master's instructions regarding prayer, and to open wide the door of thought to discern the facts of spiritual existence. Truth understood and applied heals.
A clear realization of man's at-one-ment with God is necessary in order to grasp the inseparability of supply and demand in the divine economy of being. In "the scientific statement of being" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 468) Mrs. Eddy emphasizes the spiritual unity of God and man. She further stresses this unity when, in answer to the question, "Is there more than one God or Principle?" she says (ibid., p. 465), "There is not. Principle and its idea is one, and this one is God, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent Being, and His reflection is man and the universe." Man is God's reflection, the idea of infinite Mind. Mind without idea, or idea without Mind, is inconceivable. They are inseparable. Infinite Mind is man's source of supply. It might also be said that man, God's image, is God's means of expression. He is necessary to God. Thus it is seen that in reality supply and demand are inseparable, since Mind and idea comprise one indivisible whole.
