The main ideas of Ella Wheeler Wilcox's book are rather simple. But one shouldn't underestimate the meaning of her style. This is a "thought" about a young man, who is learning secrets of a wonderful mythical science - alchemy, which helps to transform stones into gold. It is a metaphor - the author wants to say that if we look in our own soul, we will discover just an enormous fount of strong spirit, will and power - one just should be able to see and develop it. If you are lucky enough to cope with them - you will take the treasure any alchemist ever had.
Ms. Wilcox explains why we need to work over our mind, our thoughts and how we are able to get the desirable thing. She shows how after a serious work on it one would be able to rather effectively and simply hurt, heal, conceal, using the facets of the human mind. The simplicity with which she narrates shouldn't confuse you, as every word she uses with definite purpose and deliberately.
The book can be considered as a perfect companion. It is simple, fair and wise. It is like a close friend who is able to touch your heart and it teaches us to be ourselves instead of pretending someone else. Withal the book can be regarded as a sincere conversation with a man who can give an advice, who has a wisdom to share with. That's why it is not amazing that one would turn to this masterpiece again and again and may be held it near to have an opportunity to reread it once more.
Ms. Wilcox experiences us, in the same time she shows the edges of our individuality, bringing it to the surface; simultaneously mocking at our light-mindedness and opening our potential Power and strength of Spirit. So, she gets an incredible effect playing on contrasts.
Ernest Holmes used her studies while working on his Science of Mind Philosophy. May be well-known motto comes it - change your thinking, change your life!
Anyway it is that sort of things one should think over!
Thomas Troward in his classic work The Creative Process in the Individual tries to explain the phenomena of reality speculating and using logical deduction and the law of cause and effect. He manages to convey his ideas and concepts to the reader very clearly and accessibly. The author states that there are two main factors: the individual consciousness and energy-matter. He gives explanations to such notions as Freedom, Joy, Light, Life, Love, Peace, Power, Truth, and Beauty. Thus Troward suggests that heaven is a state of consciousness, so that we don’t need to delay a heaven of joy, love and abundance…
One of the representatives of the New Thought Movement was an American author Orison Swett Marden (1850-1924). He was not only a writer but also a doctor and a prosperous hotel owner. When being a student, he worked in a hotel and then purchased several hotels and a resort. He had some financial problems and had to give up this job. In 1893 he started working again and gained a position of a hotel manager in Chicago. It was at the time when many tourists from all over the world used to come to Chicago to see the World's Columbian Exposition. At that period of time he started to note his philosophical ideas as he wanted to inspire others like Samuel Smile gave inspiration to him. In 1894 Pushing to the Front, Marden's first novel appeared. His next several books were devoted to the questions of success, will-power and positive thinking. In 1897 Swett Marden started Success Magazine and for the next 23 years he wrote regularly for Elizabeth Towne's New Thought magazine Nautilus.
