The New Thought Movement, A Way Of Life, Love and Happiness

Updated on May 6, 2013

The new thought movement is a way of life. Positive thought does lead to love and happiness - believe this, for this is true and it is good. There is no need to be unhappy. You are loved and you are love. This is the essence of a new way of thinking. It is down to you to create the perfect life for you and you can achieve this by being your best.

Blessed are those who think, feel and give love. Blessings are love and it is good.

Gratitude is born from love. Giving thanks is love and it is good.

The universe is of love's energy. We are all connected to this energy and I love you. The thought I have created here in my writing is a demonstration of what the new thought movement wants to achieve - to tip the power of love into a more complete world - to be the best that it can be. Just like you.

The New Thought Movement - What Is It?

What is the meaning of life? Simply joy! To have the most amazing life filled with the 'feel good' factor. Happiness is easy. It is a state of mind. A state of self actualization.

Psychologists are aware of this - just click on the highlighted link above for more - but really, lets be honest, it is only a matter of common sense!

The question is... what is happiness to you? What is your joy? Each person lives in their own truth and what may rock your boat, might not rock mine!

The new thought movement is about visualizing your joy, finding your pathway through life, love and happiness. This manifests through thinking and feeling within a heightened state of well-being. It is positive thought. It is good and you are your best, every moment of every day.

A Heightened State Of Well Being - You Can Live An Abundant Life!

In recent months, I have achieved a new state of being. I have achieved a new way of life, filled with love and happiness. This is thanks to the new thought movement. With gratitude, I want you to know that it is good.

I no longer need to sacrifice myself for the benefit of others. Sacrifice doesn't appease anyone, and doesn't make people feel good. All it does is give out a vibration of lack and limitation.

Resources don't dwindle, when a resource runs out, new resources are always found. The universe serves us with all we need to have an abundant life.

My state of mind is now one of sending out positive thought and energy to the world and, in my joy, comes forth the tools for me to live an abundant life.

If I can achieve a heightened state of well being and live an abundant life, so can you!

The New Thought Movement And Balance

We are energy in physical and mental form. The new thought movement emphasises that we are a balance of:

  • 33.3% Mind or Intellect
  • 33.3% Body or Physical
  • 33.3% Spirit, Soul or Energy

To neglect or focus on only one aspect of the whole, therefore, creates an imbalance. We need to look after and be our best in the three aspects of our being whilst we are in a physical manifestation.

Life is about creative abundance

Getting Rich Is A Way Of Life Built On Creation - Be The Best You Can Be!

Yes, I am rich. Far richer than in money - although money does come easily, frequently and is received with deep gratitude - which comes in very mysterious and fantastic ways. My life is a magical one, where I only have to ask and I receive.

Positive thought, mixed with feelings of love, really do work. Getting rich, therefore, is a way of life that is built on creation, rather than competition.

This is what is meant by abundance. When a flower grows effortlessly from one seed, then the creation of many seeds are sent forth to germinate and expand, making even more richness to the world.

It is, therefore, our duty to the universe to get rich by creation. In becoming rich, we can then help others to get rich too. This is the secret to an abundant life through positive thought. Be the best you can be and really start to change the world!

  • You are interconnected source energy. You are perfect. This is the best you can be at this point in time. You are good.

What Is Energy? God?

James Arthur Ray, New Thought Movement Philosopher, describes energy as this:

Asked of a Quantum Physicist - What creates the world? Answer: Energy.

So, what is energy? Energy can never be created or destroyed. It always was and always has been. It is everything that has ever existed. It is moving into form, through form and out of form.

Asked of a Theologian. What creates the universe? They will say God. So, what is God? It always was and always has been. It is everything that ever existed. It moves into form, through form and out of form.

Essentially, we are talking about the same concept but with different labels.

... but can be by you!  Just listen to your heart.
... but can be by you! Just listen to your heart.

We Live In Abundance - Think, Feel, Ask, Love and Receive

There is enough for everyone. As soon as one resource diminishes, then more is soon found. There is no such thing as a lack - only creation and that creation comes from a manifestation of thought. So start imagining and creating! Ask, think, feel with love, then you will receive. It is as easy as that.

Followed by thoughts of gratitude, you are well on the way to a new understanding which is termed the new thought movement.

You Are Universal Star Dust In Transit

We are star dust and a product of the universe. Everything in the universe is energy. Physicists say this, Theologians say this and you know in your heart that this is true.

We are all Gods and, as Gods, we are interconnected to the whole, making one God. We are one in the spirit. We are one with the whole. Such interconnectedness makes us all brothers and sisters. In loving each other, we tip the balance of love toward 'thy kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven'.

In forgiving our trespases as we forgive those who trespass against us, we are creating love for our oneness. So bless those who appear to challenge us. They are great personal emotional trainers who we celebrate by the giving of love.

The New Thought Movement - Be Your Best!

The new thought movement advocates you to be your best. In being your best, you are an example of others. It is your duty to humanity to be the best you can be. Bless everyone. By blessing others, you are blessing yourself. Why? Because we are all interconnected. We all operate with the same source energy. Blessing others who challenge you the most, is the greatest gift of all.

  • Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Thought Is Energy

The new thought movement aims to use thought in a positive way. Thought, being energy, is then transmitted. This is a form of communication that emanates to the whole - remember that energy interconnects every thing with everything - thus, making the world and the universe a better place manifest from love.

So, as we consciously think 'be my best', our example, not only has a positive effect on ourselves, but humanity as a whole. If we are our best, then, like a love virus, others follow.

The new thought movement advocates love - to think love, feel love and emanate love. This promotes a happier way of life and state of well being, not only for the practitioner but for all.

New Thought Movement Of Gratitude

Gratitude acts as the glue to positive thought.

The new thought movement believe in an attitude of gratitude.

Be grateful for what you have and thank the universe for what you have had, are having and will have, however small.

Whatever seems to be negative at first in your experiences, see this as positive.

There is a bigger picture.

Trust in the universe to make it all right and you will see that it is all good.

Find the joy within you and be grateful for every thing in your life - even a rainy day has it's benefits!!! See the joy in the sustenance of water and the life that spurts forth, for it is good!

A Love Attack

This is a love attack, this new thought movement thing. An attack on a way of life filled with love and happiness. It is your choice. You create the life for you. It is your right to choose. Do you want to be the best that you can be? Have faith that all is well. Know there is a bigger picture. Trust that your life is an adventure and watch it unfold. Then love. Then bless. Then be grateful.

      awesome - a great reminder for me at a time when I need it most. I have passed this on via RedGage, voted it up etc and linked to Facebook.

      RedElf - there were many during that golden age. Unfortunately, some were too quick to 'break on through to the other side'.

      Knowledge of 'the true meaning to life' might force the hand of mortals to get there quicker (which is probably the reason why 'spirituality' has evolved and packaged in a religious context up to now - this is all good and perfect and as it should be). Wisdom does not lie in the action of getting to nirvana, heaven or what ever label you wish to call it.

      As individuals, we need to aim to be the best we can be and love life with joy on this earth now. Life is for living!

      I like the way this relates to God (as Rose by any other name - yes?). "We are stardust. We are golden. And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden." Joni Mitchell was wise beyond her years... and we thought it was just a "hippy song" :D

      Happyboomernurse - if we can be our best, love from our hearts every moment of every day, we are an example to others. If we were not our best yesterday, then we must not ponder on that echoe, but to be our best today... this hour.. this moment, giving power to now.

      Bless you with joy :)

      Very much enjoyed this positive, inspiring hub and I agree with all you've said. I particularly liked this statement: "This is what is meant by abundance. When a flower grows effortlessly from one seed, then the creation of many seeds are sent forth to germinate and expand, making even more richness to the world." Love is exactly like that seed, you spread a single act of love and it can germinate into many more acts of love that spread from one human being to another, creating a more beautiful and abundant world for all.

      Am voting this hub up, useful, awesome and beautiful.

      @carolp - blessings

      @Pamela - the common denominator of the new thought movement, thinks, feels and expresses the principals of love. Much like the fundamentals of all religions, without it being a religion. Blessings my friend and love to you.
