“We have within us a power that is greater than anything that we shall ever contact in the outer, a power that can overcome every obstacle in our life and set us safe, satisfied and at peace, healed and prosperous, in a new light, and in a new life.” -- Ernest Holmes

Featured New Thought Magazines

Daily Word magazine is published
six times a year by Unity

Science of Mind ® magazine
is published monthly by the
Centers for Spiritual Living

I love New Thought Teachings and begin every day reading the Daily Word from Unity and Science of Mind magazine from the Centers for Spiritual Living. In the January 2017 edition the article Spirit Is Calling Us Back is a great overview of the basics and legacy of Religious Science.  Please Click Here on the image below for a PDF of the article.

To me the article on The Realization of Perfection from the May 2014 issue of Science of Mind magazine is a wonderful elaboration of What We Believe by Ernest Holmes.  Click Here or on the image above for a PDF of this article from the May 2014 issue of Science of Mind® Magazine from Centers for Spiritual Living


New Thought, as defined in the dictionary, is a modern spiritual philosophy stressing the power of right thinking in a person's life, the idea that our thoughts and attitudes affect our experience and that God (or whatever other name a person might have for a Higher Power) is within the individual. New Thought is a logical and scientifically based understanding and method of changing our experience by changing our thinking. New Thought is simple and easy to learn. It has a tradition that reaches back over one hundred years and is founded on principles that embrace many of the world religious and spiritual practices spanning thousands of years. 

New Thought recognizes that human beings function on many levels: that the individual is a mental, spiritual, emotional and physical being. In realizing our fullness, our wholeness and maximizing our potential we are, in essence, finding fulfillment. New Thought teaches people tools which put us on the path to fulfillment. The natural extension of this fulfillment is that as an individual's life is better, their family's life is better, their community's life is better and this extends out across the planet.

Background On Establishing the New Thought University and
More Recently the New Thought Spirit in Business Benefit Corporation

To help more people discover how to enjoy greater happiness, well-being, prosperity, peace and success in living a spiritually-centered life, the cosponsoring organizations decided to launch incorporate New Thought University as a not-for-profit membership organization.  In addition to helping introduce the many wonderful organizations, programs and publications that are available, we will publish several books, e-books and offer seminars, workshops, webinars and live events. That will include providing digital and print editions of many of the classic New Thought books that are either out of print or in the public domain.

Our initial publications will include: New Thought University: 101 Resources for Helping People Discover How To Apply the Spiritual Principles and Practices for Successful Living Known As New Thought and New Thought StewardHeirShip: Helping Cocreate A World that Works for Everyone! An invitation to Help Share Spiritual Principles and Practices for Successful Living Through New Thought University, New Thought Business Network and New Thought StewardHeirShip Benefit Corporation.

We are seeking additional cocreative participation by anyone who wants to help evolve these New Thought programs, provide content, help coauthor, edit and help publish all of our pending titles, and help us discern the best ways to share them (and information about the many available New Thought publications and organizations) with the world.

    realizations of peace, poise, power, plenty-health, happiness and success-or
    whatever the particular need may be.” -- Ernest Holmes

    How Would You Do on The Ultimate Entrance Exam?

    What does the word "godhood" mean to you? To me, it simply means seeking to Be Still and Listen, Seek Spirit first, Let Go and Let God, and Radiate Love, Peace, Joy and Harmony. That's why I like to spell the word God with the infinity symbol for the o because I believe Gd is Infinite Good!

    That is also why we also recently created the
    The University for Godhood

    Providing Resources for Helping You A.R.K. 

    Awaken to your identity as a Spiritual being having a spiritual experience;
    Realize more of your inherent potential to express Godhood; and
    Know how to fulfill your Divine Destiny as a Cocreator and StewardHeir.
