Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

The Science of the Mind was originally published in 1926 by the founder of the worldwide Religious Science movement. It was completely revised in 1938 by Ernest Holmes and Maude Allison Latham; this 1997 edition is the 1938 version with an added introduction by Jean Houston and a one-year study program that breaks the weighty tome into digestible bits. Using creative techniques, Holmes guides the student in easy-to-follow steps toward mastering the powers of the mind to find purpose in life. His explanations of how to pray and meditate, heal oneself spiritually, find self confidence, and express love have helped millions change their lives for the better. The Science of Mind is one of those spiritual classics that belongs on the bookshelf of anyone who wishes a life for themselves free of compulsion and negativity. --P.

Review

"The first forty pages or so of this voluminous work laid out the mind-over-matter philosophy of California mystic Ernest Holmes, which became a major influence on New Age spirituality. Holmes was a broad thinker and his work reflects a wide variety of influences, from Emerson to Christian Science founder Mary Baker Eddy. Holmes never became widely known but influenced many who did, such as Norman Vincent Peale. His books could be found in the libraries of George Lucas, Elvis Presley, and scholar of myth Joseph Campbell."

More About the Author

Ernest Shurtleff Holmes (1887-1960) was an avid student of the world's spiritual systems. He found in these a common denominator he called the Science Mind, a practical philosophy for abundant living. Beginning as self-educated lecturer, Holmes developed a large following of students and went on to formalize his work by founding Science of Mind magazine, an educational institute, and the United Church Religious Science. His writings have inspired the work of countless clergy, business leaders, physicians, and psychologists and have helped to shape the guiding principles of the modern human potential movement, both spiritual and secular. Born and raised in Maine, Holmes spent much of his adult life in California.

If you are on a Spiritual Journey then this book is a must. I have been a student of Science of Mind for seven years and the teachings of Ernest Holmes have changed my life by helping me change my way of thinking. This is not a "self help" book, nor is science of mind a religion; it is a way of life. It makes no difference what your beliefs are, you will find that this book touches your soul. This book is not a one time read; you use it daily, over and over. Take your time reading it in order to conceptualize the material and enjoy your journey!

I have read so many books, nearly 2,000 that have had a tremendous influence on my life, and still do to this day. It was during the darkest period of my life that I took nearly all of the money I had to my name and bought The Science of Mind.

Within 8 weeks of reading (and highlighting) this profound book from cover to cover my entire life did a complete turnaround.
What Ernest Holmes drilled into my mind was EXACTLY how the laws of this universe work with respect to manifestation. The universe is completely neutral! Whatever you focus on and believe is exactly what you WILL receive! Remember this! I feel such deep gratitude for Ernest Holmes for writing this book because of the immeasurable difference it has made in my life.

Highly recommended from my heart,
Barbara Rose, author of "Stop Being the String Along: A Relationship Guide to Being THE ONE" and 'If God Was Like Man'

Format: Paperback
I first bought the Science of Mind textbook about 14 years ago. I had already been studying spirituality and metaphysics for a few years prior and got the book from the advice of a friend.

Let me get this straight from the outset, this was not an easy read, at first. The style it was written in felt awkward and cumbersome. (I usually like reading my books outloud as it tends to have a deeper impact on me as the reader) I actually felt a little intimidated by Holmes' style so I put it aside and actually used it to hold my door open when my house got drafty and blew the doors closed.

A few years later I started going to a Religious Science Church and I, rather innocently, asked the minister if the Science of Mind book was in any way related to Religious Science and he said, "Yes, SOM is the text we use for all of our classwork..."

So I rushed home and began to read it again and somehow during those three years that book changed into something incredibly breathtaking. I was and I am still amazed at the depth it was written. If anyone says that it's just more of the same 'ol mind stuff, tell the person 'thank-you very much' and then walk away. I am a firm believer that if words that point to a Higher Level of awareness don't excite you in some way then you really don't fully understand what you're reading.

Just to realize with 'real eyes' that I am an aspect of the Whole leaves me feeling so incredibly wonderful; that the Infinite loves me enough to create and re-create me anew in each and every moment of creation is humbling and makes me understand on a deeper level what Jesus meant when he said, "I, of myself can do nothing...it is not me, but the Father within that doeth the works...

This book is one that I think everyone should read. The message that the book presents about the power that each person possesses to make their life whatever they want to be, the message about the true nature of each human being, and the message about love that are in the pages of this book can revolutionize the world.

Format: Paperback
Since I was a teenager, I have always felt that there had to be a better way of experiencing the circumstances of life. I spent a life time searching for the happiness that I knew I deserved, but just could not find. When I came across Ernest Holmes' brilliant book, The Science of Mind, I knew, beyond a doubt, that this was what I had been looking for.

Mr. Holmes speaks with a voice that rings with truth, faith and power. His message is consistently simple: God is a living presence that dwells within the individual, and by believing in this great power, all that we desire is provided to us according to our faith.

I found every paragraph of this book inspiring and uplifting. Mr. Holmes uses a clear, straight-forward approach to teach you what you need to know to change your life as well as the life of other people. His method is practical. This book has given me the confidence and the mental focus I needed to transform all the negative, fearful and confusing aspects of my life into ongoing experiences of success, accomplishement and health. My wife and I have never been happier (after 20 years of marriage), my job is rewarding, my finances are in order, and most of all, I know that my relationship with God is just as it should be. I hope that I am not gushing, but there are very few things in my life that I feel a need to change. I cannot convey how rewarding it is to know that I can rely on a power that is eternal and that gives freely and consistently. Mr. Holmes has helped me to understand my place in the scheme of things, or better stated, to know who I really am.
