Sep 26, Eileen rated it liked it Shelves: spirituality. First published in , this book makes clear many of the important tenets of the New Thought movement of the late s. Cady presents New Thought philosophy to increase our personal empowerment transforming our thoughts, words, and beliefs.
Although first published over years ago the relevance today is clear, dispite the "old language'. She expounds on 12 truth principles to live by. Emilie Cady's premise is of an "indwelling Christ through whom and by whom come life, health, peace, power, all things". Lessons in Truth is a part of the curriculum used at Unity School of Chrisitianity. Dec 10, Debra added it. Jun 25, Elena rated it it was amazing. This book was my introduction to "New Thought" religion and philosophy.
Half of the Book is Wonderful I will re-read this book and see if the first half makes any sense in light of second. For now, let me first place this book in the context of the 19th Century New Thought Movement, then look at chapters , and then I hope my unusual approach will prove justified. The common element in New Thought schools is the supremacy of mind over circumstances.
Of course, the more religious sort had their own theology emphasizing the all-ness of God and the unreality of evil sickness, poverty, death. I read the second half with great interest. The first half I read with exasperation, as my copious notes reflect. The first half of the book attempts to outline a theology underlying what I just described. On its surface, it sounds Christian. Similarly, she like Mary Baker Eddy is addicted to out-of-context proof texting from the Bible to support ideas that could not be further from the text.
Sometimes Cady seems to realize the weak intellectual foundations of her teachings and exhorts the reader to just forget about it and see if it works! She is refreshingly endearing at those points. The historical Jesus does not seem to be God, but rather the greatest Master—a sort of Western Buddha. New Thought theology is pretty slippery, though. A blatantly non-Christian religious movement spearheaded by women would have had trouble gaining traction. When viewed in the context of her era, the second half is truly remarkable and the first is more forgivable.
Unity today seems to be spreading its wings beyond Christianity, perhaps in a conscious bid for the buying power of women attracted to a plethora of New Age ideas.
Cady comes through as a sincere and appealing personality. The second half makes a very intriguing and enlightening read. I would recommend this to anyone interested in New Thought, and for admirers of Unity, especially those curious about its roots.
Profound and heat opening This book has expressed the deep truth and peeled back the layers of mental confusions. It is learning and unlearning as well. Thank you for opening the door within. Sep 11, Onur rated it really liked it.
Well, explanations of truth based on Holy Bible are clear and she also gives prayers based on Bible again for invocation purpose of experience of our Godself however, i failed for some reason.

But I was very drawn to some of the statements and views about faith and put a whole raft of Emilie's affirmations up on my bedroom wall.
I would read them to myself every morning. At the time I had just returned from a 'failed emigration' to the USA and was working in a pub kitchen to make the rent.
