Science of Mind

"Evolution is better than Revolution. New Thought Library's New Thought Archives encompass a full range of New Thought from Abrahamic to Vedic. New Thought literature reflects the ongoing evolution of human thought. New Thought's unique inclusion of science, art and philosophy presents a dramatic contrast with the magical thinking of decadent religions that promulgate supersticions standing in the way of progress to shared peace and prosperity." ~ Avalon de Rossett

Indeed, philosophers of the empirical school usually deny the existence and notion of liberty, at least as insisted on by Intuitive Philosophy. No one can reach, or has striven to reach, the notion of liberty through outside experience. It has, when accepted, been referred directly to consciousness, or to an intuitive power.

Lesson 52 - 10. Truth - p.224

10. A ninth intuitive idea is that of truth. Truth is the law of thought. It is the agreement of the judgments of the mind with the facts and principles to which they pertain. It is thus the goal of all intellectual inquiry. Truth may seem to be a special application of the notion of resemblance. More careful thought will distinguish the two. Between the intellectual statement and that to which it pertains there is no resemblance, as between one color and another, one form and another, one feeling and another; nor is the correspondence of truth that of identity, the vanquishing point of resemblance. The two terms, the one an immediate product of the mind, the other a fact of some order in the Universe about us, are in every way distinct from each other in the formal elements of being; they coalesce only in that single relation which we express by the word truth. The power to discern the relation is a peculiar power of mind; and that it is an intuitive power is seen in the fact that at least one of the two terms brought together is an intellectual product. The senses therefore can not pronounce on truth, while the judgment simply affirms that true which is seen to be so.
