Serving New Thought is pleased to present

John Bascom's

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

Still more is this true of our feelings towards others. These, in the conscientious temperament, receive almost their entire force from the moral sentiments. The affections, a distinct class of sensibilities, are our emotions toward others as moral beings.
