Spirituality in Action: I Learn and Embody Science of Mind Principles

The Science of Mind  by Dr. Ernest Holmes is the source for inspiration for this month’s theme. 



“The practice of Science of Mind calls for a positive understanding of the Spirit of Truth; a willingness to let this inner Spirit guide us, with the conscious knowledge that “The law of the Lord is perfect.” Page 55

The Thing Itself


I celebrate the Presence that is the basic Reality of all life and the Power that is mine to use for true personal and global transformation.


Selected quotes from The Science of Mind, by Dr. Ernest Holmes

“The Mind of man is some part of the Mind of God therefore it contains within itself unlimited possibility of expansion and self-expression.” Page 390

“But the great Love of the Universe must be One with the great law of Its Own Being, and we approach Love through the Law. This, then, is the teaching: Love and Law.” Page 26

“The evolution of man brings him arbitrarily to a place where true individuality functions. From that day, a further evolution must be through his conscious co-operation with Reality.” Page 129

The Way It Works!


I choose my words carefully! I love my life!


Selected quotes from The Science of Mind, by Dr. Ernest Holmes

“The life which we live is Universal Life expressing through us, else how could we live? Our thought and emotion is the use we make — consciously or unconsciously — of this original creative Thing that is the cause of everything.” Page 36

“We are thinking, willing, knowing conscious centers of Life. We are surrounded by, immersed in, and there is a flowing through us a creative Something… call It what you will. The sum-total of all our thought, will, purpose and belief, creates a tendency in this Law that causes It to react to us according to the sum total of that belief.” Page 38

“The gardener goes forth in faith to sow his seeds. He has learned that as he sows, so shall he reap, that the Law works the same for all alike.” Page 39

What It Does


There is a power for good in the Universe greater than I am and I say YES! to its perfect expression through me!


Selected quotes from Dr. Ernest Holmes

“The originating Power descends into the consciousness which meditates upon It and receives It.  The intellect abandons itself to the Divine Ideal.  It is a feeling, a sense, an atmosphere.  We do not have to energize this Power for It is the very Essence of all energy.  It is Its nature to manifest our word; It will always remain true to Its nature.  We do not have to wonder whether It will work or is working.  It has to work.”

“You are using a power which is, and you have a right to use it and it will reach right up to your ability to use it.  It is limited by our mental concept, absolutely.  While it is the power that makes that planet and everything on it, it makes you and it makes me, when it comes to working in our life individually, over our conditions and over our bodies, it can only flow in through our consciousness, no other way, and what we want to do is to provide that great, big consciousness within.”

“The Power of Life within you is a spiritual power, able to bring to you permanent peace, increasing happiness and joy, and greater material abundance.  These things that have made man miserable can be eliminated through the conscious use of this Power.  God could not visit fear or hate or impoverishment upon us, because God transcends these things.”

How To Use It


I use my mind – thoughts and feelings – to create a vision of what I desire and then I move toward that vision’s manifestation.


Selected quotes from Dr. Ernest Holmes

“We should learn to control our thought processes and bring them into line with reality. Thought should tend more and more toward an affirmative attitude of mind that is positive, stable, and — above all else — toward a real unity with Spirit that is already complete and perfect.” 

“One of the great difficulties in the new order of thought is that we are likely to indulge in too much theory and too little practice.”

“A new light is coming into the world. We are on the borderland of a new experience.  The veil between Spirit and matter is very thin. The invisible passes into visibility through our faith in it. A new science, a new religion, and a new philosophy are rapidly being developed. This is in line with the evolution of the Great Presence and nothing can hinder its progress.  It is useless, as well as foolish, to make any attempts of cover this Principle, or to hold It as a vested right of any religion, sect, or order. The Truth will out; the Spirit will make Itself known.  Happy are we if we see these things which, from the foundation of the human race, have been longed for by all aspiring souls.”
