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

It finds application in several directions, and perhaps, in the development of the mind, as early to space as to any other form of thought. The notion of space cannot be dwelt on without soon suggesting this idea of the infinite. The mind soon sees the inapplicability of any measures, limits, finite relations to space, and that, in the very moment of establishment, they are swept away by the on-going movement. Space lies without, as much as within, any line we choose to run, and the nearer has no advantage over the farther side.

It is seen that there can be no advantage in pressing the imagination to its utmost flight, that the conditions which are now present at this point of space, must recur everywhere, no matter what the position attained by us; that one point and one position here or there, that each
