Choosing Thought

Ernest Holmes, Our Founder


We cannot live a choiceless life. Every day, every moment, every second, there is choice. If it were not so we would not be individuals. 

We have the right to choose what we wish to experience. We have the right to choose the kind of companions with whom we wish to associate; to say in what city and in what type of house we would like to live. We are individuals and the only way we can be individuals is to be spontaneous. There is no such thing as a mechanistic individuality, it must have the essential elements of spontaneity. There is no spontaneity and no individuality without prerogative. There can be no choice unless there is something from which to choose, otherwise the ability to choose would be merely a fantasy. Therefore, there must be not only the possibility of choice; but the liability of experiencing that which is chosen. 

We have a right to choose what we shall induce in Mind. The way in which our thoughts are to become manifest, we cannot always see – or should we be disturbed that we do not see the way – because effect is potential in cause. “I am Alpha and Omega,” and all that comes between cause and effect. Cause and effect  are really one, and if we have a given cause set in motion, the effect will have to equal the cause. One is the inside  and the other the outside of the same thing. A certain, specific, intelligent idea in Mind, will produce a certain, specific, concrete manifestation equal to itself. There is One Infinite Principle, One Infinite Thought-Stuff, One Infinite Creative Power, but countless numbers of forms, which change as the specific idea behind them changes.

Substance and Supply

The Substance of the Spirit is my Daily Supply.

I cannot be with my Good.

I can see that the constant stream of Life, flowing to me, brings in to my experience all that makes Life happy and worthwhile.

I rest in the security, knowing that Infinite good is with and is expressing through me.

I receive my Good.
