In presenting these lessons on Mental Science, I do not claim
to have discovered any new Truth. The Truth has been known
in every age by a few; but the great mass of people has never
even dreamed that we live in a mental and spiritual world.
To-day, however, there is a great inquiry into the deeper mean­
ing of life because the race has reached a state of unfoldment
where a broader scope is possible.
These lessons are an attempt to put into the spoken word
and into print some of those great truths known to the enlight­
ened of all ages.
To suppose that the Creative Intelligence of the world would
create man in bondage and leave him bound would be to dis­
honor that Creative Power which we call God. On the other
hand, to suppose that God could make man as an individual,
without leaving him to discover himself, would be to suppose
an impossibility. Individuality must be spontaneous and can
never be automatic. The seed of freedom must be hid within
the shell of the human. But, like the Prodigal of old, man must
make the great discovery for himself. Although the journey
may at times seem hard and the burden too great to bear, man
still feels within a subtle sense, a mystical presence, a divine
Reality. Thus, the inherent nature of himself is forever seek­
ing to express itself in terms of freedom. We will do well to
listen to this inner voice, for it tells us of a life wonderful in
its scope, of a love beyond our fondest dreams, of a freedom
which the soul craves.
But the great love of the Universe must be one with the
great law of Its own Being, and we must approach love through
the law.
This, then, is the teaching,—Love and Law. As the love
of God is perfect, so the law of God is also perfect. We must
understand both. "Who hath ears to hear, let him hear."
I wish to express my appreciation to the authors whose
names are mentioned following the different lessons in this
course of instruction, as well as to many others whose names
are not mentioned. The Truth comes to us from all sources,
and our understanding of it is the result of the time, thought
and effort of thousands of people who have given their lives
to its study.
I wish to express special appreciation to Miss Anne Ship-
man, of Boston, Mass., without whose untiring efforts it is not
probable that these manuscripts would have ever been gotten
in shape for publication; and to my mother whose great faith
in these teachings has inspired me with the hope and the belief
that they may be of benefit to those who study them.
