is going to argue for The One of Parmenides I don t think he cites Parmenides by name but speaks in his terms Most modern Christian thought puts God outside of the universe an atemporal, transcendental being of some kind , and makes Man all people, but I ll use Man because that s the way they talked in 1926 completely separate from his creator.The One is infinite and everything that exists is made of this mind substance and is just a rearrangement of this substance according to Holmes The Rev George Berkeley developed a coherent and probably never properly refuted belief system that everything that exist is in the mind of God If a tree fell in the forest and no one was there to hear it would it make a sound Yes, of course, it would according to Berkeley, God would hear it Holmes is taking Berkeley but putting a reverse twist on it, we are the mind of God and God is our mind He d would probably agree with the statement that the Man who thinks is God That s sort of an Aristotelian sentiment too Because, in the Aristotelian worldview there is no creation ex nihilo, there is only creation from something, an arrangement of stuff Since Holmes is starting with the infinite substance being from God he reaches a similar conclusion to the Pagan thought of Aristotle.Holmes very subtlety reworks Christianity with some of the old Pagan beliefs put back in Holmes, no longer makes Man an infinite distance from God and our Gratitude can be actualized under traditional Christianity we can never pay God back fully for the Cross and can only try to be perfect in this life time, but Holmes allows us to be perfect For Holmes, God is approachable, and might be outside of time, but still part of our universe Karl Popper realized that Parmenides agrees with Einstein s block universe from Einstein s General Theory of Relativity Time is taken out of the universe when it is looked at from the whole cosmos Holmes is no dummy He knows what he his doing and how he connects man to God through the medium of the ether or in today s terminology I would say the Higgs Field , which permeates the whole universe and gives all particles which have mass their mass.Holmes does give a very non standard interpretation on Christianity Not that there is anything wrong with that who wants to study the same old boring stuff His thinking does seem to overlap a lot with Quaker thought probably by far my most favorite of all religions He also has a whole lot of Mary Baker Eddy in his system, but with what I would call a lite version Because, he ll say go ahead and think the illness away but go to a doctor if need be.He thinks there is a medium an ether where our thoughts can travel freely about Our thoughts can effect and affect the world He really likes Jesus, but puts a different spin on Jesus words than traditional Christianity Such as when Jesus said I and the father are one really means that all of us have the spark of God within us and God has it in us and we are all like the speck in the center of a page completely surrounded by the infinite mind everything is mind Duality mind body dichotomy leads to errors in thought The author understands that and discusses some of those problems when he talks about absolutism and relativism He knows that cause and effect get jumbled together and he replaces that way of thinking with Karma.The author thinks mystics have always been real great sages of ages past from all cultures who understand the wisdom acquired from the instinctual use of the mind , and the author thinks psychics of all kinds are real and can tap into the subjective consciousness, the part of the mind that contains the soul and contains our memories and can be accessed by using deduction, the necessary Laws that flow from the universe s God s existence Spirit is that which becomes self aware and is not soul, the soil that allows the Spirit to be actualized.There s definitely a large self help component to this book People who have been through bad experiences and need a helping hand will definitely be able to embrace this book with its positive mental attitude approach but they first would have to wade through some of the compact language and pseudoscience contained in the book I suspect that s why people give this book such high ratings I liked his attitude on good habits and why they matter so keenly in making us who we become, first the man takes a drink, then the drink takes the drink, and then the drink takes the man The prayers or meditations in the end of the book probably would work for people who are at their wits end and feel they can t take it any To get to the meat of the book, one does have to wade through a lot of psychobabble constipation is about recognizing ones freedom , I would say that it s about fiber, but immediately following that he says something intelligent about people with low self worth and how to realize that it is not real So one has got to take the good with the bad with this book.This book provides a different spin on Christianity In my opinion, arefreshing look, and he is not bad with his philosophy, but there is a lot of babble from the time period he writes which he accepts I would be fairly certain there are people this book could help, but it is not a science book whatsoever and does have a whole lot of psychobabble with it

    The book started off well enough, taking me on a journey through Christian beliefs in the spirit, soul, and body as they are related to the Holy Trinity Father, Holy spirit, Son Then it made some great assertions that we choose our outlook on life and that we are in total control of any outcome that may befall us For these great concepts, I d give the book 5 stars The reason it earns two stars is because of the constant repetition of the same thing and the pointless religious babble Babble The book started off well enough, taking me on a journey through Christian beliefs in the spirit, soul, and body as they are related to the Holy Trinity Father, Holy spirit, Son Then it made some great assertions that we choose our outlook on life and that we are in total control of any outcome that may befall us For these great concepts, I d give the book 5 stars The reason it earns two stars is because of the constant repetition of the same thing and the pointless religious babble Babble might be a harsh word but it does it justice when the other repeatedly says things like God is all and all is God These type of sayings could have filled up 25 pages of this book The real issue started when he began delving into levitation, psychics, fortune tellers, apparitions, etc. At that point this book turned into an Encyclopedia of Witchcraft Author claims he has personal had conversations with mysterious voices that did not know where they came from and that he has personally seen a pencil writing while floating in midair with no one holding it Then with his other mystical claims, he admits that there is no research on it but he assumes that one day we will find proof for how these things happen There is no science in this book whatsoever Science includes experiments, trials, data, anything The whole book is conceived of his own personal beliefs and him validating that it is Fact

    The Science of MindDon t be fooled by the title I was, but only until the third paragraph I don t remember how it got on my list, but once started, I felt I had to train wreck through it I ve read a number of real mind science books in the last couple of years and this this is a simply a largely Christian religious text with a few scientific mentions in it There is a bit of pseudoscience, but Holmes clearly doesn t think so.It s unfair to ding Holmes for a 1920s perspective, and it s unfair The Science of MindDon t be fooled by the title I was, but only until the third paragraph I don t remember how it got on my list, but once started, I felt I had to train wreck through it I ve read a number of real mind science books in the last couple of years and this this is a simply a largely Christian religious text with a few scientific mentions in it There is a bit of pseudoscience, but Holmes clearly doesn t think so.It s unfair to ding Holmes for a 1920s perspective, and it s unfair to pick on the non science as this is clearly religious Any reader without a critical eye can be taken in by the wrong definitions examples His examples of something as simple as inductive and deductive reasoning are wrong, but sound convincing I made a lot of notes, but after a while it became comical, so I decided to give up Some of the gems is this one Take electricity as an example we know that there is such a thing as electricity we have never seen it, but we know that it exists because we can use itThat logic evades me we can make predictions about electricity, and test those predictionsbut the simpler answer wasting scientists s time is because we can use it It is known that certain people can read our thoughts, even when we are not aware of the fact Um, wow The conscious mind controls the subconscious and in its turn, the subconscious controls the body. No Really no as we have found that man is threefold in his nature, so we must also deduce that God is threefold in His Nature must Dude, there is no must save in your manufactured very odd world Non sequitur Psycho analysis is a system of analyzing the soul, or the subjective mentality It is a mental process of diagnosis which seems to be technically perfect when used by those who understand it. Right Because psycho analysis is an absolute science Strange as it may seem, we do not have the same physical bodies that we had a few months ago they have completely changed new particles have taken the place of the old and the only reason why they have taken the same form is, that Instinctive Man has provided the same moldHuh No comment necessary So, I was a bit surprised to learn that the mythical Biblical flood was caused by psychic confusion Never heard read that ever I was also unaware that very few diseases are inherited I ll chalk that up to a 1926 understanding of genetics.I think I should qualify this reviewI looked up comments on other editions and learned that this may have been an abridged version I can t imagine plowing through anything longer This is a tortuous read Holmes is all over the map here and doubles back on himself throughout He obviously believed he was coherent He wasn t I didn t like this, but not enough to rate it one star

  7. Sandy Sandy says:

    powerful stuff whether you believe in god or not, this stuff is good and it works if you allow yourself to try the principles expounded upon and then just observe what occurs That is the whole truth of the matter no matter what anyone might call it religion, god, whatever, with a Positive Mental Attitude and Focus we can each change our lives Period.

  9. Nancy Nancy says:

    I subscribe to Science of Mind magazine and really like the philosophy of the reilgion founded by Ernest Holmes However, I could not finish his classic book His use of Spirit, Soul, Subconscious, Conscious, Mind, etc only boggled my mind So, I gave up on reading it Will have to content myself with articles of his that appear in the magazine and clearer interpretations of others as to his beliefs.


  10. David Teachout David Teachout says:

    At times sophomoric, at others deeply profound Holmes is here giving the total visionary outline of the religion or spiritual discipline he created It does not have to be read in order and in fact likely shouldn t, instead perused as a spiritual guide to further understanding the principles of Religious Science Contemplation is key here as is an appreciation for how standard religious words are used differently Once clear a whole new world opens up.
