Overview

THE SCIENCE OF MIND is one of the most famous works of New Thought Philosophy, which reached its apex with Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich in 1937. THE SCIENCE OF MIND is a must-read for all fans of THE SECRET, Rhonda Byrne, Bob Proctor, and Abraham-Hicks. In fact, Michael Beckwith, featured in THE SECRET, is a licensed Science of Mind (aka Religious Science) minister.

This is the original unedited 1926 version of THE SCIENCE OF MIND (specially- formatted for the Nook). The later 1938 edition removed virtually all of Holmes' discussion of psychic issues and psychic phenomena. If you're a student of Science of Mind, you ABSOLUTELY need to read this early edition.

"This is a book for the ages. In precise and powerful prose it lays out the blueprint for the remaking of the mind and the reenchantment of the world." -- Jean Houston, Ph.D

In the early part of the twentieth century, a visionary named Ernest Holmes began a journey of exploration and research that profoundly affected thinkers throughout America. His work, based on the teachings of the great philosophers, the sacred wisdom of both Eastern and Western traditions, and the empirical nature of science, offers a philosophy of religion and psychology emphasizing the limitless potential of the human mind. This book contains the fundamentals of Holmes's teachings and is a primary resource used by teaching centers and spiritual healers worldwide. Its universal principles apply to people of all spiritual backgrounds as they describe a higher level of existence attainable through the use of Nature's forces and the power of God. While imparting an unrivaled technique for living, Dr. Holmes's classic guide speaks clearly to a complex world caught in transition and searching for guidance.

Meet the Author

Ernest Holmes founded the international Religious Science movement, wrote "The Science of Mind" and numerous other books on metaphysics, and originated the international periodical Science of Mind magazine, which has been in continuous publication since 1927. Holmes' Science of Mind teaching, recognized today as one of the leading viewpoints in modern metaphysics, is a spiritual philosophy that has brought to people around the world a working cosmology - a sense of their relationship to God and their place in the Universe - and a positive, supportive approach to daily living.

Holmes published his first book, "Creative Mind," in 1919, followed shortly after by another volume entitled "Creative Mind and Success." He continued his studies, and lectured to growing crowds in California and Eastern cities. Meanwhile, he was writing "The Science of Mind," which was to become the "textbook" of the Religious Science philosophy. First Published in 1922, it was originally copyrighted by his wife in 1926, revised in 1938, and is now in its 45th printing, and has been translated into French, German, and Japanese. At the time the book was published, his many enthusiastic students urged him to set up an incorporated organization. He refused at first, but eventually agreed, and the Institute of Religious Science and the School of Philosophy was incorporated in 1927.

On October 23, 1927, in Los Angeles, he was married to widowed Hazel Durkee Foster. They were to be inseparable companions for thirty years. In 1953, the Institute became the Church of Religious Science. In 1967, it acquired its present-day title, United Church of Religious Science, with member churches throughout the world. On May 21, 1957, he lost his chosen life-companion.

Ernest Holmes made his transition to the next experience on April 7, 1960, in Los Angeles. He left no children. But he left all humankind an enduring legacy: the way of life he called Religious Science.
