Ernest Holmes: The Science of Mind Audio Book Summary
Ernest Holmes is perhaps one of the most influential 20th century thinkers few people have heard of. Holmes was a theologian during the early 1900s, but left the pulpit in order to develop his own philosophy of mind. This philosophy went on to inspire much of the contemporary New Thought movement, since it deals with the concept of the Law of Attraction and the universal principles that govern the universe.
The Science of Mind presents Holmes’ complete theory. It is perhaps the earliest, most comprehensive book to address the science behind the Law of Attraction. Released in the 1930s, around the same time as Napoleon Hill’s infamous Think and Grow Rich, the book takes a logical approach, attempting to prove the universal law and provide a treatise on how one can adapt this law and apply it to his own life.
The basic principle of attraction, Holmes states, is to understand two principles. The first is one of universality — that everything is connected in one infinite field — and the second is that thought has creative power. By applying your disciplined thought to a subject, you can influence the outcome. This process will work every time, because it is the fundamental law of creation and, Holmes asserts, if it has ever worked, it always works.
Thus, every individual has the creative power of the universe at his disposal. It only appears otherwise, because individuals may only use this power to the extent that they believe it will result. Thus if one thinks a thought without believing that the manifestation will be forthcoming, he achieves nothing, and will only re-emphasize his current position. If, however, he thinks a thought knowing in advance that his prayer will be granted — indeed, that it is already granted before he can even ask for it — then he will see it granted. This is the power of healing. It is the power that Jesus, Buddha, and all of the other great prophets held throughout the ages. Holmes’ work is the first attempt to bring this power to the forefront of the modern individual through logical analysis and scientific proof.
The Science of Mind has been extremely influential. Some claim that every contemporary success or motivational teacher, coach, or author, bases his work at least in part on Holmes’ philosophy. Indeed, many of the great leaders of the success industry, from Jim Rohn to Wayne Dyer to Tony Robbins, have acknowledged the influence that Holmes had on their own work and development. That makes this book a must read for anyone interested in the study of personal achievement and success, and anyone interested in the integration of spiritual and scientific principles into a coherent theory.
