Book Description

November 20, 1991 0875166407 978-0875166407 1991 REVISED edition
This is considered by many Troward's masterpiece. It embodies his maturest thought, chapter 1-10 amounting to a textbook of his teaching. The Creative Process begins with the Cosmic process and eventuates in the individual's use of Mind to further the process.
FROM THE PUBLISHER: This DeVorss edition takes the liberty of helping the reader by (1) introducing paragrahing, as Troward's paragraphs are exceedingly long; (2) introducing punctuation to ease the reading and (3) closing up some words that in Troward's day were hyphenated. Also footnotes have been added to help in the translation of many foreign terms and phrases. Finally, several errors that have disserved this work for almost a century have at last been dealt with.

About the Author

Thomas Troward (1847 1916) was born in Punjab India to British parents and educated in England until the age of 18. Upon the completion of his education he returned to India where he eventually served as a Judge for 25 years.
Thomas Troward will be remembered as a pioneer of the New Thought movement from his contribution of a few small volumes that have had a profound effect on the understanding and development of spiritual metaphysics. His philosopy played a major role in the work of prominent New Thought teachers such as Emmet Fox and Ernest Holmes.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most inspiring writer! November 30, 2004
This book is great. I bought this book as it was recommended by the famous author Ernest Holmes, who also writes on this topic. In fact, Troward's writings influenced Ernest Holmes and the Science of Mind movement. Holmes was able to put Troward's principles to the test and he was able to cure people of illness by mental treatment or what he calls "making a demonstration".

When I bought this book, I thought the early 1900s language was a little hard to read. But one day I was really bored and I read it, and it actually was very inspiring. His ideas and principles he puts forth about Truth, God, Mind, Love, Light, Peace etc, are truly amazing, and they really makes sense! As you read towards the back of the book, more and more wow principles are put forth by Troward. He suggests that most religious people are talking about the eternal heaven to go after this life. Yet he correctly asserts that heaven is a state of consciousness and conditions where we experience Light, Joy, Peace, Abundance etc in our life now. And since heaven is eternal, that means it is past, present and future and forever. Then it must be already here now - unless we do not know how to access that infitine givingness and love of God. We do not need to delay a heaven of joy, love and abundance like most religious teachers claim. And he goes forth to tell you how you can access that, and explains why it is so. And that is how Ernest Holmes could use these principles and treat people to have perfect health and abundance.

Lastly, different from other books which teach about "you must think of the things you want, not what you dont want". Troward goes one step further and teaches a way where you can only think about good things as REALITY.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consciousness and creativity August 24, 2000
Thomas Troward believed that speculative reasoning based on what is known is the best way of metaphysical investigation. This classic work attempts to trace the sequence of continuous creation by logical deduction with reference to the law of cause & effect. It is important to bear in mind the triumph of principle over precedent, meaning that ideas become manifest despite the absence of past experience, as in the case of the development of aviation. Troward conveys profound concepts with clarity; no knowledge of theological terminology is required. He encourages the reader to contemplate these ideas and assimilate them if they help to make the meaning of the Bible clearer.

Troward calls the creative process the Self-contemplation of Spirit. The twofold essence of nature comprises (i) the unity of a universal creative principle & (ii) multiplicity in manifestation. He posits a sequence of cause & effect universal in nature that harmoniously includes all possible variations of individual expression. Two factors are projected from a common source: individual consciousness and energy-matter. Their relation to each other becomes an absolute fact regarding these factors themselves. The cosmos is thus no illusion. Creation proceeds from the operation of Divine Will upon both the "soul" of nature (in a sequence of progressive condensation) and the localization of its mind in the individual.

The author identifies the substantive properties of Spirit as love, light, power, peace, beauty & joy and its actions as initiative & selection. If Love itself is the original motive for creation, the divine ideal is that of individuality that recognizes its source.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on the manifestation process! December 14, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book on the process of manifestation. Thomas Troward was a gifted spiritual teacher and sage who breaks down the manifestation process to its nuts and bolts, but this book must be read thoughtfully and slowly in order to be understood completely. I have this book as part of my collection of favorite books and highly recommend it.
