"Troward's most lucid and accessible attempt at explaining the roots of his convictions." --Napra Review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
Thomas Troward (1847–1916) was an English author whose works influenced the New Thought Movement and mystic Christianity. Troward was a divisional Judge in British-administered India. His avocation was the study of comparative religion. After his retirement from the judiciary in 1896, Troward set out to apply logic and a judicial weighing of evidence in the study of matters of cause and effect. The philosopher William James characterized Troward’s Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science as "far and away the ablest statement of philosophy I have met, beautiful in its sustained clearness of thought and style, a really classic statement." According to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) archivist Nell Wing, early AA members were strongly encouraged to read Thomas Troward's Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

All of the same era, Mesmer, Quimby, Judge Troward, then Robert Collier and Neville Goddard.... all 'tripped over' this same REALIZATION: that there was a power within each and every one of us, which creates everything we experience in our life, and IF we are AWARE of it, we can impress it with positive thoughts, love, and whatever visualizations we want of things we greatly desire, AND THOSE THINGS WILL MANIFEST effortlessly, as if by magic, in our experienced reality. We are already using this power by default, unaware of the negativity and limitedness we continue to manifest due to the impressions constantly feeding this mind.
Since the statements by Jesus, "....you shall do the works that I have done, and more..."; "....the Father and I are one" and, "... as He is in me, He is in you also....", men have questioned these statements, wondering what "the Father" referred to (or symbolized), desiring to know and use this power, rather than be left on the dung heap of bewilderment, prayers unanswered, powerless and feeble in our vulnerability, to not only the elements and our physical bodies, but our seeming lackings - of mind, education or birth.
Mesmer showed up on the scene, around the turn of the century, proving that a hypnotised person, no longer using his conscious or normal mind, could be given a suggestion causing phenomenal affects on both body (a cold fountain pen, placed on the bare skin of a hypnotised person, told that it was a hot poker just out of the fire, caused an immediate welt on the skin) and mind (asked to state the whereabouts of an audience member's lost relative, did so, to the astonishment of the member who followed up, and reported back; a coal miner to speak in french; and a child to give the mathematical root of pi).
But what 'mind' was the hypnotist speaking to, what was responding, and causing the body to respond, in these phenomenal ways? Assuredly it was not the conscious mind - but one beneath it: Hence, 'subconscious mind'.
My favorite line was that we should maintain, or never loose, a Peter Pan-like attitude toward life and ourselves. Always be open to the adventure, and never believe only in the seen, and seeming physical reality, but maintain utter imaginative zeal. For whatever we believed, so shall it be.... right up to ascension, and a life of no worry or fear whatsoever.
Our word shows forth, betrays our character whether we know it or not. Our choices come with our free will, and the law implements them into our experience for good or ill. Be more thoughtful and meaningful when you speak. Let trash be trash, don't talk trash. It comes back to you in your experience..
