How I Used The Truth

by Emilie Cady

"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

Question Helps

These questions are to be used in connection with the study of How I Used Truth. Each student should study his lesson with these questions before him. It is a very good practice to write out the answers and bring them to the class. Each student should recite as often as possible, but should not monopolize the class period. Every member of the class should have opportunity to express his realization on any subject. These questions need not necessarily be answered, but may be used to call attention to the central idea contained in the paragraph under consideration. A class should not cover more than five questions at a meeting. Remember, never argue! Keep to the subject! Be considerate of everyone's ideas! Your purpose is to find Truth.

When errors are found in New Thought, then it evolves and that old New Thought is replaced with New Thought.   
In the late 20th Century, New Thought became riddled with false prosperity doctrines and a lack of compassion. 
The New Thought of the New Millennium leaves such delusions behind embracing a new paradigm

New Thought Day was declared by James Edgerton on August 23rd, 1915
During research while expanding the free New Thought Library, one of the ministers came across an interesting quote from early New Thought Alliance President James A. Edgerton: "'The truth, once announced, has the power not only to renew but to extend itself. New Thought is universal in its ideals and therefore should be universal in its appeal. Under the guidance of the spirit, it should grow in good works until it embraces many lands and eventually the whole world.' ~ New Thought Day, August 23rd , 1915."
