The Cosmos Newly Thinking

This piece is the third in a series exploring the traditions and practices of New Thought (aka Science of Mind). The first piece set some historical context for the tradition and the next piece looked at some of the deeper storehouse of riches in the tradition. Each piece stands on…

The Technology of New Thought

“A Supreme Power and Wisdom governs the Universe. The Supreme Mind is measureless and pervades endless space. The Supreme Wisdom, Power, and Intelligence is in everything that exists from the atom to the planet. The Supreme Power and Wisdom is more than in everything. The Supreme Mind is everything. The…

New New Thought

This piece is the first in a series looking at the tradition of New Thought (aka Mental Science or Science of The Mind). In these pieces I want to explore issues of intentionality, magic, and cosmological co-creation. I’ll investigate in particular a number of the techniques or processes within…
