This is an excellent book on the process of manifestation. Thomas Troward was a gifted spiritual teacher and sage who breaks down the manifestation process to its nuts and bolts, but this book must be read thoughtfully and slowly in order to be understood completely. I have this book as part of my collection of favorite books and highly recommend it.

Exceptional book...Ernest Holmes wrote "The Science of Mind," and this is certainly the physics behind the science. If you find the writing style difficult, try reading commas as semi-colons, semi-colons as periods, and periods as paragraph breaks.
An excellent read for anyone who wants to undertand more about the creativity of thought. Please note that I'm co founder of The Thomas Troward Society, although I have not been actively involved in the society since 1993.
Thomas Troward was a judge in British-administered India, where he made a personal study of the teachings of Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. After retiring from the bench in 1896, he applied his legalistic mind to matters of philosophy, and began lecturing and publishing on "Mental Science," eventually becoming president of the International New Thought Alliance.More about Thomas Troward...

“A lie is a statement that something is, which is not. then, since the Spirit's statement or conception of anything necessarily makes that thing exist, it is logically impossible for it to conceive a lie. Therefore the Spirit is Truth. Similarly disease and death are the negative of life, and therefore the Spirit, as the Principle of life, cannot embody disease or death in its Self-contemplation. In like manner also, since it is free to produce what it will, the Spirit cannot desire the presence of repugnant forms, and so one of its inherent Laws must be Beauty. In this treefold Law of Truth, Life and Beauty, we find the whole underlying nature of the spirit, and no action on the part of the individual can be at variance with the Originating Unity which does not contravert fundamental principles.”
“Relying on the maxim that Principle is not bound by Precedent we should not limit our expectations of the future; and if our speculations lead us to the conclusion that we have reached a point where we are not only able, but also required, by the law of our own being, to take a more active part in our personal evolution than heretofore, this discovery will afford us a new outlook upon life and widen our horizon with fresh interests and brightening hopes.”More quotes…
