The Three M’s--New Thought in a Nutshell

“The most powerful emotion we can experience is the mystical. It is the power of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt with awe, is as good as dead.” Albert Einstein

The Three M’s of New Thought:

  • Mystery: That which can be defined is limited by its definition. Mystery, then, is not a definition, but the lack of one. Spirit remains mysterious, yet can be experienced. New Thought embraces the Mystery.
  • Morality: There is no inherent morality in the world. We create it. The simplest, yet the most profound morality (and reality!) is, simply, do no harm, help where you can. As St. Augustine wrote, “Decide to love and do as you like.”
  • Manifestation: All is energy; we create through prayer, through meditation, through connection, through choice and commitment, through word, through thought, and especially through gratitude. Plato wrote, “A grateful mind is a great mind, which eventually attracts to itself great things.”

The New Thought principles are simple. And they can change your life, if you so desire. For more information about the New Thought movement, visit one of the websites listed below in "Important New Thought Sites You'll Want To Visit."

“Consider the duck. It encounters the air, water, and soil. It benefits from each, is hindered by none, harms nothing. They are cute, too. Be a duck.” (Old Slovakian saying)
