Serving New Thought Brings New Thought to our fingertips

 

Our work is encouraging a growing consciousness of New Thought around the globe as a spiritual path, a philosophy and way of life.

 

The library system is universally accessible by all people, both seekers and shareres.

With open source architecture, there are no user names or passwords.

Like all that we do, New Thought Library is free.

Seekers go to the library and its mirrors, then often use the Universal New Thought Directories to find and then visit New Thought Spiritual Communities:

The only Universal New Thought Directory

FindACenter.com is a news resource which lists all New Thought Centers around the globe. It has encouraged a growing sense of community on the part of all its visitors. People who are unable to find one type of New Thought community in their area can easily find another form. This supports them in their New Thought journey where ever they go.

One of the perennial conversations among New Thought ministers revolves around "New Thought being the best kept secret in metaphysics". When we take a team of ministers to the streets of any major city or small town with a set of clipboards and a questionnaire, it shocks some ministers to observe how few people know about New Thought in general or the various New Thought denominations.

Regardless of which denomination you ask them about, only a small percentage of the general public know anything at all about New Thought and even less about all the wonderful "Branding" efforts taking place.

Fear of being identified with Scientology, Christian Science or other non-New-Thought movements has simply resulted in what fear creates.

Regardless of how much "Branding" is done, the history and resources of New Thought essential to our teachings will always reveal our roots. This is a blessings not a problem. We do not need to run from our roots but rather embrace them. The branches of a tree reach into the sky in direct relation to the depth of its roots. Our roots are deep, thus our potential is high.

The most powerful tool that we have is each other. Our diversity is an asset and insures that we will meet the evolving needs of people around the globe.

At the end of the 20th Century, percentage wise, less people knew about New Thought than at the beginning of the century. In 1910, almost every major Newspaper carried articles on New Thought every week, if not daily. The history of New Thought reveals the reasons for this change. This is due to the fact that over the past 100 years, the only structures offered were membership organizations such as denominations, as well s individual teachers who developed followings yet did not impart a strong New Thought identity outside of their particular teachings.

Denominations serve an important role in expanding their particular New Thought focus, or in the vernacular of private enterprise their "brand" providing training for individuals seeking to become leaders and teachers in their organizations.

Individual teachers taught a spectrum of unique insights, sometimes mentioning New Thought but more often than not focusing on particular systems such as the "Infinite Way", "Love Without Limits", or the "Mystic Scroll".

The very nature of denominations means they must focus on fostering their own identity as opposed to promoting New Thought as a whole. How can a membership organization do something other than support their members? This is not a problem, it is simply a fact.

Over the last 20 years we have found that it is normal for laiety in one denomination to know nothing about their New Thought denominations' relation to other New Thought denominations or organizations. Often the first time they realize there is a relation between Unity, Science of Mind, Divine Science, UFBL or any of the other denominations or organizations is when they visit the FindACenter.com directory because they can't find a local center / church of their denomination when moving to a new town or state.

Is it bad if seekers find a different New Thought Center, whether independent or another denomination, particularly when there is no local center of their denomination in their area? We don't think so, we believe that as long as they are able to get to a New Thought Center and grow through these teachings, then all of New Thought benefits.

We believe that your center is unique, that each minister is unique and that this spectrum of talent is an asset, not a liability.

Diversity is power and variety is strength.

There is an old story about a Father whose children were always competing and not cooperating together. Sometimes they would have fights and take each others things. After a particularly viscious day, their father brought them together and showed them a bundle of sticks he had cut from an oak tree. They were sure that he was going to give them a thrashing, but instead he handed each one the bundle of sticks and asked them to see if they could break it. Each one tried and failed. Then the Father unraveled the bundle, snapped a stick and then handed one of each of the remaining sticks to each sibling. He asked them to discover if each could snap his or hers. They easilly snapped their sticks. He then explained: "Remember that you are all like the sticks from this bundle, cut from the same oak tree. When you work together you will be unbreakable, but apart you can be easily broken." After this day, they ceased quarelling and competing and began working as a team. Instead of being envious of each others capabilities or jealous of each other friends, they ceased poking fun at each other's differences, and began celebrating them and boosting each other. They became a powerful team capable of doing anything and overcoming all challenges. They all prospered together for the duration of their lives.

Conscious Ministry enables us to focus on what is important to the growth of New Thought and to expand our centers. Over the last 20 years, in our role of supporting all of New Thought, both seekers and sharers, we have observed key principles that support the growth of spiritual communities. We have developed programs to support ministers to grow their communities, bring in new members and develop a closer relationship with existing members.

New Thought support around the globe

"The truth, once announced,
has the power not only to renew but to extend itself.
New Thought is universal in its ideals
and therefore should be universal in its appeal
Under the guidance of the spirit,
it should grow in good works
until it embraces many lands
and eventually the whole world."

--Mr. James A. Edgerton, former President of the International New Thought Alliance on New Thought Day, August 23, 1915
