The Ancient Lineage of New Thought The philosophy of New Thought is not new, it has not one original idea, but is a simplified and practical form of a very ponderous and wonderful religion. It makes an application to the everyday needs of modern life, of principles and ideas which the ancients used only for the few who chose the life of adepts. No being, human or divine, known to history, sacred or profane, can be called the originator or discoverer of mental or spiritual healing. The BhagavadG ita, the oldest known record of religious tenets, is full of New Thought. In theD hammapada Buddha it is said: JA ll that we are, is the result of what we have thought. In this I fniverse there is one continuous force on every plane of existence. There is no difference between the sun and man. There is no such thing as my body, or your body, except in words. It is all one. Sun, moon, mineral, man. Even in manifest motion there is only unity. One who has learned how to manipulate the internal forces will get the whole of nature under his control. One man having more control of Prana than another, can rouse him for the time being to a state of vibration, and transmit health to him. The process can be carried on at a distance.
