Lessons in Truth, Chapters 1, 2, and 3
I believe that Dr. Emilie Cady’s books set the “Gold Standard” for New Thought. Her books have been studied by Science of the Mind, Divine Science and Unity. She is very clear that we must approach these Truth Lessons with an open mind and release our old beliefs in order to “feel” if these teachings are true for us.
Lesson 1: Sets the stage for our Spiritual Journey. It is a journey from bondage of any sort to full and complete freedom. She interprets the Israelites journey from slavery to the Promised Land as an example of what is available to us – if we do the work. She pulls from the Book of James – “we must become doers of the word, not just listeners.”
Lesson 2: Dr. Cady is teaching the importance of our understanding of who God is and who we are. The phrases – ALLNESS and CREATIVE LIFE FORCE move our understanding away from a being with human tendencies to an understanding of the vastness and power of the True God. We have with in us a Divine Core, Completed Soul that is created perfect and in the essence of this ALLNESS. Our journey is truly the journey of remembering who we are and who we are at ONE with.
Lesson 3: This lesson is about the importance of our use of our mind – how we think. She makes the case that everything we experience comes from how we think. Are we thinking in a way that separates us from our Good? Can we change how we are thinking to lead us to freedom? To our own Promised Land of “milk and honey”.
She ends these three lessons with the thought that every moment the Creative Life Force/God is flowing more unconditional love, extravagant abundance, blissful happiness, and total peace into our beings.
Are you recognizing and receiving all of it?
