Ernest Holmes and the Way It Works
A few weeks ago we did an initiation ceremony for our new Practitioners here at the Center. During the ceremony, Rev. Susan Burrell read an essay from Ernest Holmes’ book, Living the Science of Mind. It was perfect for the ceremony and reminded me that Rev. Susan is a devoted student of Ernest’s writing. She really reads and rereads his works.
It got me to pick up Living the Science of Mind once again. In it are many essays Ernest wrote over the years that were published in various different places and his genius is again visible in the writings.
He began lecturing about his philosophy back when he moved to Venice, Ca. from New England to be with his mother and brother. People were interested in what he had to say because it was such a “new thought.”
Nowadays, we have been living with this information from many different sources for the last 100+ years and it has become sort of normal to have at least of vague idea of what New Thought is about. Now you can see and hear the ideas in movies like The Secret and What the Bleep Do We Know? Physics is also part of New Thought as they came about at the same time. I find it wonderful to recognize that.
This month I will be exploring Ernest’s writings and exploring what it must have been like to have these marvelous thoughts revealed to us when we knew nothing about the concepts a hundred years ago.
