"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

while the other one's mind or fluids are completely changed and combined, so all that is necessary is to give direction and locate the disease in any part of the body. I think I hear you say that a child can be troubled with scrofula, and they have no mind; then they have no body or fluids; for the fluids are the mind, as I said before. Your mother probably changed the fluids of your body, when an infant or at any early age, and some circumstance located it in your leg.

The sensation of heat under the skin has been misinterpreted. Now I believe that I can impart something from my mind that can enter into that distressed state of the fluids and change the heat and bring about a healthy state.

If you think you would improve faster by coming to Belfast, please let me know, and I will get you a private boarding house, if desired. 1 think I can hear you say by this time that your limb feels better, if so I shall be satisfied.


It may be somewhat strange to you to hear something of the mode of curing disease by a person who does not believe in any disease independent of the mind.* I am acquainted with a person who does not give any medicine at all, and yet he is in the constant practice of curing persons afflicted with all
