Science of Mind

"To learn how to think is
to learn how to live."

Ernest Holmes, Author of Science of Mind
(also known as Spiritual Psychology)
and Founder of the philosophy of Religious Science

If these few words already resonate with you, you will find great insights, information and inspiration from exploring this site. We have included under the "Ernest Holmes" tab above, the original text from his book, Science of Mind, written in 1927. Although he made a very few changes later in his life, this text still stands as the definitive work that came to be known as Religious Science.

                                                     

WHO WAS ERNEST HOLMES?

Dr. Ernest Holmes was a philosopher and metaphysician interested in and studying religion, science, philosophy and most everything else as well. He wrote the Science of Mind text in 1926 after many years of diligent and broad study of many philosophies, traditions and religions and revised it in 1938..

Dr. Holmes came to understand the direct connectivity of the individual mind to the Universal Mind and wrote and spoke of the possibilities available to each of us by using the ever-present Power. He also called Science of Mind the Science of Spiritual Psychology and it is now popularly known as Religious Science.

                                              

THE SCIENCE OF MIND IS BEST UNDERSTOOD BY THE WORDS OF ITS AUTHOR, DR. ERNEST HOLMES:

"Religious Science is a correlation of the discoveries of science, the opinions of philosophy and the insights of religion as related to the needs and aspirations of humankind."

"The Science of Mind is the study of Life and the nature of the laws of thought; the conception that we live in a spiritual Universe; that God is in, through, around and for us."

"What is the mind? No man living knows. We know a great deal about the mind, but not what it is. By mind, we mean consciousness. We are now using it. ...We cannot isolate mind. All we know about it is not what it is, but what it does, and the greatest philosopher who ever lived knows now more than this...except that he may tell us more of how it works."

"Science of Mind is the most direct impartation of Divine Wisdom that has ever come to the world, because it incorporates the precepts of Jesus, and Emerson, and Buddha, and all the rest of the wise. . .We have rediscovered that which the great,  the good, and the wise have sung about and thought about the imprisoned splendor  within ourselves and within each other - and have direct contact with it. Whether we  call it the Christ in us, or the Buddha, or Atman, or just the Son of God the living spirit,  makes no difference. You and I are witness to the Divine fact and we have discovered an authority beyond our minds, even though our minds utilize it."

From Ernest Holmes, Founder of Religious Science or Science of Mind
from his Sermon by the Sea, 1959
