About these amazing and powerful authors:
Do not be fooled by their pictures, or lulled into believing these writers are somehow conservative because they are writing about ancient wisdom.
These writers are radical, representing some of the most powerful ideas of all time.
Although it is popular right now to create New Thought mythologies and call them history, this library will show you that it is better to simply get on with exploring how these memes truly manifested
and why they only exist within the context of freedom. There can be no New Thought if you can't change your mind.
This is why Freedom is essential to New Thought. Do not let the specialists or pseudo intellectuals obscure your vision.
These ideas can change your life, if you want to have a better life.
New Thought is not about the decadent concept of submission. Surrender, if you wish to call it that, is found within the victorious transformation of that personal paradigm, you might call your consciousness. New Thought is about co-creation with the Divine. The higher truth is that we are all within a magnificent system commonly called the Universe. Compassionate Wisdom accompanied by ongoing Personal Spiritual Practice results in insights which when viewed through the lens of Divine Science result in awakening. This is the path of the voyager who is familiar with the Principle of Perspective. There will be always be those souls who want things to be fixed and finished, but observations are subject to what some might call the 'Law of Observation and Understanding' or what Heisenberg called the "Uncertainty Principle." It states: "the more precisely the position of some particle is determined, the less precisely its momentum can be known, and vice versa." In terms of understanding the memetic transference of information, this priniciple is equally applicable. You might explore a book back and forth until it has saturated your mind to the point that you have every passage memorized, yet this will only serve the purpose of being able to transmit the words precisely. The deeper principles of that book, if it contains any worth sharing, are what will support your attaining the deeper wisdom that lifts you to joyful being and positive effort from that being.
Let's rephrase Heisenbergs principle:
"If we are so focused on a wave of particles that we can discern the exact location of a particular particle, we cannot see the wave. We must pull back in order to expand our view wider to see the big picture, to see the wave."
These New Thought Authors are sharing insights that can change your life through changing your thinking. By definition change is not stasis. You will first learn that these principles are so powerful that if you have the freedom to apply them through spiritual practice then the consequent compassionate action arising from your individualized manifestion of the Universal Matrix of Understanding, will change you. As you change, your whole world will change with you.
Over these years since we began this library and the accompanying resources, our work has been mainly supported by the public, but there have been New Thought Spiritual Leaders around the world who have supported these resources. Some of these Spiritual Leaders are within our Parliament of Owls. They are credited throughout the library in the credit sections of the individual creations. We chose to create our Parliament of Owls to support the participating Spiritual Leaders to be able to work on the digitization of these books and when they are ready to be able to express the Divine through his or her Divine Voice. The Owl is a sacred creature that bridges archetypes: Athena, Persephone and of course Zeus who births Athena directly from his forehead.
Perhaps the Persephone connection is most dramatic and interesting. The owl is considered the messenger of Persephone and the round eye of the owl symbolizes circular eternity. Within indigenous traditions, including the Celtic and Sami people, the owl is often present before or after death or danger. Symbolizing the opportunity inherent within the crisis, the owl calls to the Higher Self to be courageous and thereby transcend limitation of false conceptions.
Our Parliament of Owls is open to any New Thought Sharer. Simply volunteer!
The connection with Athena is obvious. Athena is the Angel of Mind. Athena is the Angel / Goddess / Saint of arts and literature. Athena is also Angel / Goddess / Saint / Tara of defense and peace. Athena offers the olive branch while prepared to defend wisdom and civilization. This is why Athena is loved by those who value peace and prosperity and feared, thus hated, by those who prefer domination and suffering.The Persians called her Tushnamatay and claimed that she first dwelled in Persia where she manifested meditation and other spiritual practices. It is said that she, along with Dena, the angel of ethics, were both daughters of Ahura Mazda. The Akashic records reveal that when the decadents sought to slay her, she took refuge in the Emerald Isles where she is called Kathleen ni Houlihan. She ministers to all who desire to know the deeper truth and transcend death. She is an alchemical Goddess who is eternally reborn in the Spring, but disappears in the Autumn through a flower,. She is able to move between the dimensions, throughout space and time, death and life.
Many cultures around the world have been savaged. Often they were savaged by those who stole their culture while telling them: "this is for your own good." This is not a new phenomena. It is an ancient one. Yet culture lives on within your DNA and through New Thought you will awaken and "seek the kingdom within and thus all shall be yours ..."
For the moment that is enough mythology.
