  1. ChaosInGa ChaosInGa says:

    I love and prefer books that challenge my way of thinking esp about matters related to God and spiritually You may or may not choose to agree with Cady However you are forced to AT LEAST think about why you believe what you believe and determine if it's all or in part worth reexamining

    This book greatly enhanced my spiritual growth made me think about things a little deeper Reading this will make you think about what thoughts you have the words you speak what you believe why I think the last chapter of this book was the best

  3. Edythe Prince Edythe Prince says:

    If you are reading this book I recommend you listen to Lessons in Truth series on the Truth Transforms podcast by Rev Gaylon McDowell It starts around February 2013 and he discusses a chapter per show and does a great job Here is a linkhttpwwwunityfmepisodeTruthTran

    First published in 1894 this book makes clear many of the important tenets of the New Thought movement of the late 1800s The author emphasizes the indwelling of the Spirit in each person that God is All in all and the hopeful possibilities for the future as people become aware of this reality She was influenced by other New Thought teachers of her time – Emma Curtis Hopkins Ralph Waldo Emerson Charles and Myrtle Fill Emmet Fox and other great minds of the New Thought movement

    Half of the Book is WonderfulI will re read this book and see if the first half makes any sense in light of second For now let me first place this book in the context of the 19th Century New Thought Movement then look at chapters 7 9 and then 1 6 I hope my unusual approach will prove justifiedReligious or spiritual movements like Christian Science and Unity and for that matter 20th Century best selling secular self help books like Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich and Norman Vincent Peale’s The Power of Positive Thinking can be traced back to a New England watchmaker named Phineas uimby 1802 1866 New Thought may be America’s sole original contribution to religion The common element in New Thought schools is the supremacy of mind over circumstances Of course the religious sort had their own theology emphasizing the all ness of God and the unreality of evil sickness poverty death They became associated with healing and with Unity the broader applications presented in Cady’s book of 12 LessonsNew Thought has survived primarily in the muddy “power of positive thinking” current while Christian Science and Unity are struggling The latter half of Cady’s book is a very good practical exploration of what today we would call meditation While Christian Science focused on healing Cady had no problems with dismantling resistance to any of God’s good things This might be dismissed as a precursor to the “prosperity gospel” except Cady—whose Yankee practicality is her most attractive feature—seems to view the material benefits of answered prayer as God’s way of proving the lessons in the book and leading the seeker to disinterested enlightenmentCady gets into the nitty gritty of meditation or “sitting in silence” giving good advice on what to do with intrusive thoughts or why aspirations are better than trying to keep one’s mind empty But the end of all this is what seems to be a touchingly sincere desire for people to find that “their Lord” is within them and that God is not just the Father of cold divine principles but a warm and loving personal Mother to whom we can turn in confidenceI read the second half with great interest The first half I read with exasperation as my copious notes reflectThe first half of the book attempts to outline a theology underlying what I just described There are “denials” and “affirmations” and “demonstrations” and who knows what all Frankly it’s a mess On its surface it sounds Christian However Cady borders on the unscrupulous in her appropriation of Christian terms like “Christ” and “God” for concepts far removed from any orthodox understanding Similarly she like Mary Baker Eddy is addicted to out of context proof texting from the Bible to support ideas that could not be further from the text Sometimes Cady seems to realize the weak intellectual foundations of her teachings and exhorts the reader to just forget about it and see if it works She is refreshingly endearing at those points But then she’s back to argument by analogy and other tricksSince there doesn’t seem to be any essential link between New Thought and orthodox Christianity I found myself wondering why people like Cady and Mary Baker Eddy and Unity’s Charles and Myrtle Fill bothered The historical Jesus does not seem to be God but rather the greatest Master—a sort of Western Buddha There doesn’t seem to be sin just illusion or error New Thought theology is pretty slippery though In the first half of the book it seems Cady can’t write than two pages without contradicting herself Then again she’s walking a very fine line between both using and disabusing terms like “sin”However America was a solidly Christian nation during the heyday of New Thought To give some perspective Cady’s lifetime spanned the Civil War and she did not even have the right to vote when she wrote this book A blatantly non Christian religious movement spearheaded by women would have had trouble gaining traction Moreover she didn’t have all the intellectual reference points we take for granted today When viewed in the context of her era the second half is truly remarkable and the first is forgivableUnity today seems to be spreading its wings beyond Christianity perhaps in a conscious bid for the buying power of women attracted to a plethora of New Age ideas Cady’s book is old style Unity inspired by if not based on ChristianityWhile the thinking isn’t always clear the writing is often direct and fresh and I enjoyed it giving it a good study in just a few days Cady comes through as a sincere and appealing personality Among the New Thought canon I enjoyed it much than the disjointed and labored Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures The second half makes a very intriguing and enlightening read I would recommend this to anyone interested in New Thought and for admirers of Unity especially those curious about its roots

    Some good uotes worth highlighting and saving but overall did not enjoy Also did not mesh with my beliefs the following uote as an exampleI believe that the veriest heathen that ever lived he who worships the golden calf as his highest conception of God worships God His mind has not yet expanded to a state where he can grasp any idea of God apart from a visible form something that he can see with human eyes and handle with fleshly hands But at heart he is seeking something higher than his present conscious self to be his deliverance out of evil
