Trine, Ralph Waldo: What All The World's A-Seeking. V1. 19-Mar-2011

Ralph Waldo Trine (1866-1958) was a philosopher, mystic, teacher and author, and was one of the early mentors of the New Thought Movement. His writings had a great influence on many of his contemporaries including Ernest Holmes, founder of Religious Science. He was a true pioneer in the area of life-transforming thought. No other New Thought author has sold more books than he, his writings reaching far beyond New Thought circles out to the general public, which has bought and read Trine's books without ever knowing that they were New Thought.


This short book by Ralph Waldo Trine stands out in the huge body of New Thought literature for several reasons. First of all, he uses the phrase 'A Science of Mind' nearly two decades before the Ernest Holmes book of the same title. Second, and much more importantly, is the stress he places on service and compassion, not only to humanity, but to also animals, in fact, all sentient or conscious beings. This, of course, echoes Buddhist sentiments. It also addresses one objection which often comes up in discussions of New Thought: if we create the universe with our own minds, why should we care about others? Trine clearly states that an ability to care for others is central to being able to access one's inner power. Lastly, he says plainly that the best way to achieve this is by 'silence.' Where others waltz around the issue of how to develop mental powers, Trine offers a powerful and simple technique to do so, what we today call meditation. (www.sacred-texts.com)
