Circles of Love Introduction
It is a tradition to start the New Year right in our philosophy going back to the basics with the opening sections of Science of Mind text. How many of you have done that? Ernest Holmes said, “Science of Mind in its broadest and truest sense includes the best there is in science, religion, and philosophy. It is the result of the best thought of the ages.” It’s important to know why Holmes named this philosophy, “The Science of Mind.” He meant for us to consider its efficacy (the power to produce an effect) according to the concept of Science where he says: “Science is knowledge of proven facts. Science is not opinion but knowledge, a demonstrable truth of which there may be a practical application. Science reveals universal truths and gives them to the world as practical values and usable facts.” This definition is just as valid today as when he wrote it in the early 1900’s.
What I think is newsworthy was Holmes always considered Science of Mind a compliment to medical science. Many of you may not be aware of this. He was raised learning Christian Science as a foundation so naturally Spiritual healing was always present understanding. What a concept today…imagine Practitioners working with the medical world together.
Holmes wanted this philosophy, Science of Mind to grow and be “open at the top”- always welcoming the new with an open mind. One interesting fact he stated is “If the body is to be permanently well, one’s mental life must be creative, peaceful and happy.” I know this to be completely true. Getting to that level is what spiritual practices will create if done consistently and enthusiastically.
Another principle Holmes gives us is: “Science of Mind teaches that there is a favorable physical reaction, an effect, which follows a pattern of thought incorporating ideas of health, for the Law of Cause and Effect govern everything.” In other words, our thought should be consistent and have a conscious belief, thought, and emotion in total alignment in order to have our desired outcome called a “demonstration.”
