Spirit is a force and a mystery. All we know or may ever know of it is that it exists and is ever working and producing all results in physical things, seen of physical sense - and many more not so seen. What is seen, of any object - a tree, an animal, a stone, a man - is only a part of that tree, animal, stone or man. There is a force which, for a time, binds such objects together in the form you see them. The spiritual mind today sees, belonging to itself, a power for accomplishing any and all results in the physical world, greater than the masses dream of. Life means the development in us of powers and pleasures, which fiction, in its highest flights, has never touched. This ever-acting, ever-varying force, which lies behind and, in a sense, creates all forms of matter, we call "spirit." We have, through knowledge, the wonderful power of using or directing this force, when we recognize it, and know that it exists, so as to bring us health, happiness and eternal peace of mind. Edited by Rev. Lux Newman & Quimby Society. This is NOT a scanned-in copy of a pdf. It is a real text book, nicely designed.

About the Author

Prentice Mulford was born at Long Island, U.S.A, in 1834, and died in 1891. After a life, not without some adventures, during which he was engaged in such varied pursuits as mining, school-teaching and finally journalism, he retired from work with a scanty fortune. Five years afterwards, he passed peacefully away, without apparent illness or pain, having just started on a cruise alone in his canoe.

It was during these five years, that he concentrated his attention on the Spiritual Laws, and published his thoughts about them. To many, these thoughts may seem dreams; to others, they are priceless truths.

That he is a wise teacher and no dogmatist is apparent from his own words, "In the spiritual life, every person is his or her own discoverer, and you need not grieve, if your discoveries are not believed by others. It is your business to push on, find more, and increase individual happiness."

To him, at any rate, is due the credit of having been a pioneer in the thought which is now influencing people throughout the world - and his influence is very apparent in the writings of all teachers of the same school who followed him.
