First, let us tell you that this book is written by someone who is seen as god in the new thought realm.
Thomas Troward authored many books that are considered classics in the New Thought Movement, Mind Sciences, and Mystic Christianity. Influences on his writings include the teachings of Christ, Islamic, Hindu, Buddhism Teachings and more.
These lectures (Edinburgh and Dore) are exceptional in their clarity and relevance today, despite being about 150 years old. The ideas espoused by Thomas Troward influenced the American Transcendalists - Thoreau, Emerson, etc. - and provided a foundation for the New Thought movement and cognitive psychology techniques.
The lecture's purpose is to indicate the Natural Principles governing the relation between Mental Action and Material Conditions, and thus to afford you an intelligible starting-point for the practical study of the subject.

"My mind s a center of divine operations"
But if our thought possesses this creative power, why are we hampered by adverse conditions? The answer is, because hitherto we have used our power invertedly. We have taken the starting point of our thought from external facts and consequently created a repetition of facts of a similar nature, and so long as we do this we must needs go on perpetuating the old circle of limitation. And, owing to the sensitiveness of the subconscious mind to suggestion--(See Edinburgh Lectures, chapter V.)--we are subject to a very powerful negative influence from those who are unacquainted with
