featured on this website have produced some of the most readable and
self-help / self-improvement books ever written. The basic theme of all
the author's teachings are the same, i.e. that by learning to think
and to utilise the power of the subconscious mind, an individual can
his/her world, heal relationships with others, and fully realise their
highest dreams and ambitions. The books they have written contain
distilled wisdom on the art of living - mind, body and soul.
This type of philosophy has come to be known as "New Thought" or "Mental Science." The famous American psychologist, William James, in his classic work The Varieties of Religious Experience, called New Thought a "religion of healthy-mindedness." Whilst New Thought is not a religion as such, there are several religious denominations within the New Thought Movement, and New Thought principles are becoming more and more accepted within mainstream psychology the world over. Through regular appearances on TV and radio programmes, people working in the self-help and world-transformation field such as Oprah Winfrey, Gary Zukav, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson and Barbara Marx Hubbard are getting the message across to more and more people all the time.
A concise definition of New Thought is the statement of purpose adopted by one of the earliest recognizably New Thought groups, the Metaphysical Club of Boston, Mass., USA, founded in 1895: "To promote interest in and the practice of a true philosophy of life and happiness; to show that through right thinking, one's loftiest ideals may be brought into present realization; and to advance intelligent and systematic treatment of disease by spiritual and mental methods."

|It is not by
mere chance that you have come across this website, for in this great
wonderful universe of God's there is no such thing as chance. It is
the natural outcome of your desires and thought processes that have
you to that place in life where the spiritual hunger and thirst within
you needs satisfying. Whilst the traditional religions of this world
a purpose while needed, they are in effect really nothing more than
leading us upwards on our path to God. Mankind is rapidly reaching that
point in its evolution where religions as we know them can be dispensed
with altogether, and they will be replaced with spiritual enlightenment
for the individual. The signs that we are coming to the end of "the
Church age" are more evident now than ever before. As the old saying
goes, things have to get worse before they can really get better, and
"war of the gods" which we are experiencing now in this
is the rising to the surface of the silt in life's stream for
21 is a very significant number in both the development of the individual, and the evolution of the race as a whole. 21 is considered by a great many people to be " the age of majority," or "the coming of age," -- i.e. the age when one becomes an adult. 21 is also the century when the race as a whole is to rise to its spiritual maturity -- its mental and spiritual coming of age. It is the dawning of a new age of enlightenment where mankind is to become consciously aware of its essential oneness. The old concept of a deity looking down on us from a far off place called heaven is to pass away forever and be replaced with the sublime realization that the Creative Intelligence that we call God actually dwells within each and every one of us, as it is written in the 21st Revelation of the Bible: "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. "
It has been said by many that religions are the cause of more of the conflicts in this world than virtually anything else known to man and that the world would be a far better place without them and we would not disagree with this. It has also often been said that religion is the main cause of mankind's problems, but this we would take exception to for we contend that ignorance and selfishness are the root cause of man's difficulties. It is not more or better religions that mankind needs most, but spiritual understanding and enlightenment to the great facts of the universe. It is through human pain and suffering that we as a race have evolved to the point we are now at, and this is the way it must be, for it is only through learning from our past mistakes that we can hope to advance and improve as a race at all.
The world as we know it is the outward manifestation of the collective beliefs of all mankind. Collectively the human race has created the reality we live in and individually within that reality we create our own realities. The time is coming and is now here when each of us must awake from our spiritual slumber and create a new reality, a new world permeated with justice and equality, with freedom and brotherly love.
With all the problems we are facing in the world today this may seem like a very tall order. Happily help is at hand, however, and all those who are interested in the deeper issues of life and who are willing to invest some time and effort in learning and putting into practice the principles outlined by the many inspired writers featured on this website will be deeply rewarded, and will realize that one by one, one person at a time, we really can change the world into a better place.
May your search for ultimate Truth be a joyful one!

(Ephesians 2:19-22) So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. In him the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord; in whom you also are built together spiritually into a dwelling place for God.
(The 21st [Century] Revelation 1-7) Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any divide. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true." He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son."
(The 2nd Genesis 1-3) Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he ceased from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
