What We Believe - Principle 1 - Part 1

We Believe in God, the Living Spirit Almighty; one indestructible, absolute and self-existent Cause. This One manifests Itself in and through all creation but is not absorbed by Its creation. The manifest universe is the body of God; it is the logical and necessary outcome of the infinite self-knowingness of God.

Ernest S. Holmes - What We Believe - Principle 1


As we begin, you might ask yourself, how many times have you read this particular Belief, and sailed on through? Have you asked yourself: Just what is the correct meaning of the words God, Spirit, Almighty, Absolute, and Self-Existent Cause? You would be amazed at how many people do not go to the Science of Mind Textbook Glossary for the correct interpretation of meaning in Dr. Holmes's intentions in choosing these particular words. Well today, you're in Luck. We have them neatly organized below which you may access by clicking on the > to the left of each word.






Please take the time to thoroughly integrate the meanings as given in the SOM glossary. These definitions are foundational for our understanding both consciously and subconsciously - and are key factors in eliciting from both conscious memory and subconscious knowing.

They are the keys to every successful demonstration of Spiritual Mind Treatment.

This first Belief Principle is such a beautiful "Mouthful" that it merits our time to break it into parts! Studying and Embodying these definitions will set the foundation for what is to come.

Stay tuned next week for Principle I - Part 2!

Isn't this exciting?
