New Thought Beliefs ~ Divine Science Principles and Practice

Today there are at least ten different New Thought Denominations, some of which prefer to call themselves "Transdenominations." Although some say this term comes from the Rocky Horror Picture Show:

We believe it was invented by one of the more popular ministers in California.

One must understand that in New Thought there can be a tendency by some well-meaning souls to create new language such as the terms "transdenominational," or "chemiicalization" which conjure up strange imagery. This often springs from well meaning intent to describe things that these people have not learned the language for.

In fact there are many wonderful and diverse organizations within New Thought with distinct approaches to both their methods of teachings and their root texts.

Explore the different belief structures and beliefs of the various denominations and choose the path that best suits you. Although there are some denominations who attempt to avoid the issue of articulating beliefs ...

This is an exploration of the beliefs articulated by various New Thought denominations at some time or other.

Principles and Practice

Divine Science is a teaching centered on the principle: GOD IS ALL PRESENT. Omnipresence is the belief that one Presence fills All, and it is GOOD. This One Presence includes Love, Wisdom, Power, Substance and there is no opposite or other than this Omnipresence.

Divine Science is based on this one changeless Truth: that God constitutes the nature of All Being and that God and only God fills all realms and dimensions of existence. Nothing we do or fail to do can separate us from this One Present Source. Paul reminds us, "in Him we live, and move, and have our being."

Divine Science teaches that allness of Spirit is forever present in mind, and we are only limited by our ability to recognize this present source of good. How and what we believe about ourselves, our neighbors, God, and life in general will mold the conditions and situations in our life. Our life experience is the result of our habitual thoughts and beliefs. We actually have mental patterns which continue to repeat themselves until we decide to change what we believe. Change begins as a decision, then the activity in mind goes to work to support the new decision. Thus are our personal experiences manifest.

As we become aware of this truth we gradually begin to let go of the limitations we have placed on ourselves and others. We release our attachment to the world of things, thus eliminating stress and worry from our lives. We discover a depth within ourselves never before realized which is capable of bringing to us all we need or desire. Divine Science believes this is what Jesus meant when he said, "I came that you may have life and have it more abundantly." The world perceived only through our senses appears dualistic, a multiplicity of things and ideas constantly changing in appearance, in quantity and quality. But the inner depth of Being is conceived as the one and only constant, eternal Source of ALL.

This PRACTICE requires discipline and focus. Attention, at first, must be directed away from all that seems familiar in the visible world. We must consistently take responsibility for our thoughts, beliefs, words, and actions. This discipline leads to an awareness of inner HARMONY or AT-ONE-MENT; which is the result of focusing attention on our inner constant source of Being. Soon it is discovered that being out of harmony is what we call trouble, problems, dis-ease, dis-quiet, and all the world's aches and pains. Eventually we realize that the truth lies at the center of each individual Being. The one truth unites us all. This realization, ALL IS ONE WITH GOD, is a pure state of communion. It leads to the understanding that life's meaning is the profound Will of God.

According to one of our founders, Nona Brooks, "The whole of Divine Science is the practice of the Presence of God." The truth of any teaching lies in its ability to produce results through the individual, which we call evidence of the truth. Through books including the Bible, through receptive prayer, contemplation, and meditation we practice God here now. Lives are changed for good!!

"True prayer is not begging for more wisdom, more supply, or more good. Infinite, all embracing Being cannot give us more than Itself. In sharing Itself with us, It has given us all that we can possibly need or desire. Our part is to accept."
-- Nona Brooks (from her book The Prayer That Never Fails)

Divine Science believes in the unity of all life, the transcendent and immanent nature of God, and the Truth wherever it is found: in art, science or religion. The Divine Science Statement of Being reflects our belief and expresses the Truth we come to know.
