Dynamic Master of Divine Science
(1898 - 1981)
Dr. Joseph Murphy received a superior education in Ireland and England. He spent years researching all the major religions with a particular dedication to Eastern Religions which led him to a deep understanding of the truth that all religions are simply varying descriptions of the same power and that "The Power is Within You!" His studies eventually led him to Divine Science and he became Divine Science's major proponent till his death in 1981.
Murphy was the Spiritual Leader the Los Angeles Church of Divine Science for 28 years. His Sunday talks had an average attendance of 1500 people. Murphy also had an immensely popular daily radio program. In 1976, he moved to Laguna Hills, where he continued his ministry until his transition in 1981.
Murphy stood by the principle that we can understand a person best by their works insisting that people understand him through his books. He wrote over 30 books including:
He wrote over 30 books including:
(Many of these texts are no longer available as we were previously linking to a site called Northwoods Divine Science Resource Center but it has gone down recently, sorry for the inconvenience)
His work is so powerful that newer writers are capitalizing on it by rewriting it. You will find new electronic editions floating around on the web, having been rewritten by a number of writers.
Murphy's principle studies were in Eastern Religions which made him enormously popular in contrast with the classic Chrislamic influenced writers such as Emmet Fox. Murphy so much time in India, he was made an Andhra Research Fellow at the University of India.
Dr Murphy was a scholar of the I-Ching, the Chinese book of divination and was a recognized authority on mysticism and mental science. His works continue to inspire a host of new readers and spark the quest for enlightenment.
“You were born to be rich. You grow rich by the use of your God-given faculties, by tuning in with the Infinite, and as your mind becomes productive and full of good ideas, your labor will become more productive and will bring you all kinds of material riches."
“There is no virtue whatsoever in poverty, which in actual fact is a mental disease, and it should be abolished from the face of the earth. You are here to find your true place in life, and to give of your talents to the world. You are here to expand and unfold in a wonderful way, according to a God-given potential, and to bring forth spiritual, mental, and material riches, which will bless humanity in countless ways. Learn how to surround yourself always with beauty, and luxury, and realize your inalienable right to live, liberty, freedom and peace of mind.
“It is your Divine right to dramatize, reveal, portray and express the power, elegance, and riches of the Infinite One.”
"I have seen miracles happen to men and women in all walks of life all over the world." -- Dr. Joseph Murphy.
Murphy's simple and proven techniques demonstrate how your subconscious powers can perform miracles of healing. Lung cancer can be cured and vision restored. His works teach how one can use the Law of Attraction to bring prosperity, love and joy into your life; How you attain serenity, enjoy a circle of loving friends and manifest the highest good for all you come in contact with. He writes about how dreams can help you gain insight into challenges, solve difficult problems, make good decisions and even warn you of potential disasters. Murphy illumunates The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind so that you can begin to bring it into your life consciously with joy.
Murphy understood the subconscious mind is a darkroom within which we develop the images that are to be lived out in real life. While the conscious mind sees an event, takes a picture of it and remembers it, the subconscious mind can see events before they happen. Murphy teaches us to use intuition to avoid pitfalls and potential difficulties.
Our unconscious minds are replete with habits and thinking patterns. The unconscious is neutral in a moral sense and therefore adopts any habit or pattern that it is given. If we allow negative images to drop into our unconscious minds, we cannot be surprised when these images emerge to express themselves in our daily experiences and relationships.
While Murphy recognizes that some things happen to us that we did not in fact cause, he postulates that overall such events are rare. He goes on to formulate that these events may in fact have a causal root within us due to previously absorbed images which has been slumbering within the unconscious simply waiting to emerge, but with proper meditation and application of Spiritual Mind Treatment we can purge ourselves of these images by adding new more powerful images rooted in wisdom and compassion.
Understanding our unconscious minds as a photographic mechanisms enables us to remove emotion entanglements which cause energy sapping struggles which prevent us from changing our lives. We simply need to replace existing mental images with new ones and by doing so our lives change simply and easily.
Murphy states: "The law of your mind is the law of belief itself," echoing James Allen's As A Man Thinketh which is of course rooted in the Chrislamic teaching found within the New Testament: Mark 9:23 "If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth"
Today people are reading about the Mind-Body paradigm from writers such as Dr. Andrew Weil or Deepak Chopra. Understanding the power of the unconscious mind has become part of the everyday vernacular throughout the World.
Murphy, through his explorations of Eastern Religions was able to assist thousands of people in transcending limitation and awaken to the truth of their inner power.
