it is "A Complete Course In Science Of Mind and Spirit"
A beautiful thought provoking book.
Thankfully the Kindle version is the 1926 edition – much ‘punchier’ than later abridged editions.
The only difference between New-Thought and the LOA, is that New-Thought has an emphasis on healing and spiritual aspects. But at the practical level, the two philosophies are saying exactly the same thing.
While being a Christian, or even religious at all, is not remotely necessary to put the ideas of New-Thought (or the LOA) into practice, its roots are largely Christian; being effectively a renaissance of Christian Neoplatonism - however ‘uncool’ and unfashionable the new-ageists, Wiccans etc find this unarguable fact! It is really funny to encounter book reviews and blogs actually complaining about this.
‘The Science of Mind’ is a wonderful and life-changing book, and goes much further towards providing an underlying theory, of just why the LOA works, than virtually all later books.
In fact most recent books, such as ‘The Secret’ do not give Ernest Holmes (and many other New-Thought authors) the credit they deserve. One exception to this is Gregg Braden’s book ‘The Divine Matrix’. ‘The Matrix’ being the name recent authors are giving to New-Thought’s ‘Universal Subjective Medium’ (USM).
‘The Science of Mind’ comes across as much wiser, more logical, and even more spiritual, that many of the more popular ‘channelled’ sources for these ideas. One exception to this is ‘Bashar’, channelled by Darryl Anka. However ‘way out’ this source seems, the ‘bottom line’ statements they both make are virtually identical. For example, Ernest Holmes states that we can change the trend of causation at any moment we choose. While Bashar says that each moment does not depend upon the previous one – except as we insist it does.
In this book, he sets out the foundations of the metaphysical interpretation of christianity and spirituality in general and the implications this philosophically sound foundation has for our lives.
Holmes differs wildly from the modern decaffeinated 'positive thinking' self-help gurus in that he stresses the link between thoughts and thinking and Spirit as the Universal Mind that is the origin of all that exists. This is where popular contemporary works like 'The Secret' sorely miss the point. As Holmes emphasizes, Jesus is the first and best example of the use of 'the science of Mind' and sets forth the possibilities open to all of us if we live in agreement with Divine Mind. A true spiritual classic.
