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.

"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."

Amazon has mingled both editions on one product offering, so I went to the 1938 paperback edition, clicked on the Kindle link, and bought the ebook thinking it was the 1938 edition. It is NOT! It is the 1926 edition, and it has poor formatting. I first realized there was something wrong when I read a sentence that ended mid-sentence. Then again. Then I had to flip through several pages that had only a word or two on them.
This is a HORRIBLE edition. I went to Tarcher Putnam and found their ebook edition ISBN and then looked it up on Amazon. You can find it here:
The Science of Mind: The Definitive Edition.
The book itself is awesome, however the description they give is false. This book does not contain the forward written byJean Houston nor does it contain the yearly study plan as advertised. I was searching for the book as it was originally published in 1938, and would not have purchased this book had I known it was missing sections, even though the description claims to have them.
He explains how we humans can literally manifest our own destiny and determine what type of life we lead. He explains how the mind of mankind is linked to the mind of the infinite source. Since the mind of the source is infinite, this means man's mind contains limitless possibilities.
The book is lengthy and some dedication is warranted, as are most of Ernest Holmes writings, but this is one that can change your life, it has mine. Holmes dedicates a lot of time explaining spiritual mind healing and incorporates teachings from the New Testament as well as meditations on everything from obtaining happiness to healing your body to finding forgiveness for yourself as well as others and how to be stress free and just plain 'happy' as nature and the source intended us to be. I have a mindfulness quote that I’ve written everywhere as a constant reminder, it’s really simple. “As you think, so shall you be.” Be very mindful of your thoughts, they truly dictate how your life will unfold!
or any other barrier, I highly recommend reading this book."This practice is NOT mental coercion,it is NOT mental suggestion. It is mental awareness".This particular book is only 119 pages but should not be read like a novel.We all have personal and immediate access to the laws of nature, it all boils down to believing, thinking and doing.We must come back to our spiritual center or we will always be seeking external aid. Everything we will ever need is right here inside of us, and for some ,this power we have may be mind boggling but once we are aware and believe this simple truth we can start the healing process. Namaste!
