The New Thought Movement
The New Thought movement — not to be confused with New Age — is more than a century old in its current form. It is practical, universal spirituality that promotes fullness of all aspects of living, through positive thinking, meditation, affirmative prayer, and other ways of realizing the presence of God. New Thought includes Unity, Religious Science, DivineUnity, Divine Science, Universal Foundation For Better Living, Seicho No Ei and other groups and individuals. A common saying in New Thought is
Change Your Thinking, Change Your Life.
We believe the Divine may be called by many names — God, Goddess, Great Spirit, Brahma, Jaweh — but regardless of the name one calls the Divine, the Divine remains changeless and constant. The name you choose to call God changes you, not God. The Divine is personal living within each of us and uniting us all. Great Spirit does not necessarily have a gender, though some may choose to refer to God as He or She.
New Thought honors the divinity and wisdom in each religion and spiritual tradition.
New Thought believes there were, and are many great teachers, including Jesus, Buddha, and Lao Tzu— and that each of us has the capacity to awaken to our DivineUnity.
There are many New Thought Authors , many of which can be found online in NewThoughtLibrary.com
