What the New Thought Stands For

They grow too greatFor narrow creeds of right and wrong, which fadeBefore the unmeasured thirst for good: while peaceRises within them ever more and more.Such men are even now upon the earth.—Browning The truth is never in danger.

The Unity of Life

No human eyes Thy face may see;No human thought Thy form may know;But all creation dwells in Thee,And Thy great life through all doth flow.—T. W. Higginson Oh, the little birds sang east, and the little birds sang west.And I smiled to think God's greatness flowed around our incompleteness, Round our restlessness, His rest.—Mrs. Browning…

Demand and Supply

Life is a train of moods like a string of beads, and, as we pass through them, they prove to be many-colored lenses which paint the world in their own hue, and each shows only what lies in its focus. From the mountain you see the mountain. Human life is made up of two elements,…

Freedom—Individual and Universal

Hearing and Doing

Our thoughts are the text; our lives preach the sermon. Let what is natural in you raise itself to the level of the spiritual, and let the spiritual become once more natural.Thus will your development be harmonious, and the peace of heaven will shine upon your brow—always on condition that your peace is made, and…

The Mission of Jesus

Worship's deeper meaning liesIn mercy, and not sacrifice.Not proud humilities of senseAnd posturing of penitence,But love's unforced obedience;Christ dwells not afar,But here, amidst the poor and blind,The bound and suffering of our kind;In works we do, in prayers we pray,Life of our life, he lives today.—John Greenlead Whittier On a Sabbath day, nearly nineteen hundred…

The glorious creature laughed out even in sleep.But when full roused, each giant-limb awake,Each sinew strung, the great heart pulsing fast,He shall start up and stand on his own earth,—Then shall his long triumphant march begin,—Thence shall his being date,—thus wholly roused,What he achieves shall be set down to him.When all the race is perfected…

The Way of Salvation

The God of grace and mercy gives to each that which he craves for. If we think that all is well with us, He will leave us to try whether all is well. If we find that there is something that is not well, something that must be set right in us, He will set…

The Dawn of a New Age
