Lesson: “EXPLORING RESTRICTED RELIGIOUS THINKING” “untrue things we believe and say”
Lesson By: Rev Ian Taylor
Science of Mind Magazine: If God created you after His own nature (and there is nothing else He could have made you out of), then the thing you are after is already here within you. The only things that stand between you and it are the accumulated thoughts, beliefs, and emotions of the centuries. But there is nothing that has not been put there, either by yourself or the race; and what has been put there can be removed. These false beliefs are thought-patterns laid down through the ages and accentuated by your own experience, by your inherited tendencies and environment. However, there is no use wasting time speculating as to what avenue they came through. Your job is to reject them. (May 1972, p. 16)
A Holmes Reader on Change (1995): Why are some prayers answered and others not? The answer to this question is not in the will of God but in the beliefs of the person praying. (p. 33-34)
Love and Law (2001; teachings 1918-1920): The subjective side of an individual’s thought does not mean another mind. It means the accumulation of race belief which we accept operating through us. The thought forms which we have created and with which we have surrounded ourselves, our mental beliefs underneath, the result of our objective thinking and receiving through race suggestions, is termed subjective consciousness; it is that power of attraction or repulsion which the individual mentally sets up within. That is the subjective side of your mind. It is not another mind. It is your own mind operating; that is all. (p. 47.2)
