Christian New Thought Day is the first Sunday in March

Although in 1915, August 23rd was declared New Thought Day, there is also:

New New Thought Day on the First Sunday in March, it is also called Christian New Thought Day

Inspired by this website, a group of well meaning and wonderful New Thought Ministers got together and created an additional New Thought Day for celebration, reflection and thanksgiving, and this day is always on a Sunday, so you can celebrate it at your New Thought Center or Church!
It is also called "Christian New Thought Day" because the creators strongly emphasize their Christian roots.

New New Thought Day is also called
"Christian New Thought Day"

During a casual jaunt on the internet, in 2012, a New Thought minister discovered the New Thought Library website and saw that Rev. Dr. Michael Spottiswoode had discovered information about the original New Thought Day which is August 23rd. This wonderful soul was inspired to create an additional New Thought Day. One which focuses on Abrahamic New Thought directions.

Some have asked: Is this day was inspired by "dies Solis", which Roman Emperor Constantine declared on March 7, 321?

This is not to be mistaken with the Latin Term"Sol Invictus," meaning "Unconquered Sun".

The holiday of Sol Invictus is celebrated on December 25th as the sacred day of Mithras. Mithraism is the secret key to Constantinian Christianity.

We can't sure if the rumor that another group has also created a "New New New Thought Day" on December 21st is accurate. But that Day is a Sacred day to many people including the Persians who call it Nowruz.

New New Thought Day, better known as Christian New Thought Day is celebrated on the first Sunday in March

These innovative ministers created a pdf that places Mary Baker Eddy the founder of Christian Science into a "New Thought Lineage".

Of course, anyone who has read Spirits in Rebellion, or is versed in actual New Thought History, will be aware that whereas several early New Thought figures began as Christian Scientists including: Ursula Gestefeld, Jane Yarnall, and the Emma Curtis Hopkins, there were many early New Thought leaders who were not Christian Scientists and in fact Christian Scientists did not consider themselves to be New Thought.

We have received many inquiries about this, as well as commentary.

One minister from a larger denomination, asked: "Were the various mistakes in the pdf they created simply the result of ignorance?"

Another asked: "Are they simply trying to make New Thought into some kind of 'interfaith alliance'?"

Some people have asked: "Is there is a "High Council" that governs New Thought?"

If there were a high council of New Thought, then it wouldn't be New Thought anymore, would it?

If you were to create a High Council of New Thought, or try to force it into one form, by somehow forcing all people under the guidance of one body, then by definition it becomes an "old thought".

It should always be clear that New Thought is neither Christian, nor Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist etc...

New Thought is a simple teaching that might be best summarized as "change your thinking, change your life."

But there are several "tracks" or overall "schools" if you wish to call them that. Some of these are:

  • Christian New Thought (sometimes called "Bible New Thought")
  • Mental Science (focusing on Mind Principles)
  • Science of Mind - starting around 1881 with John Bascom focusing on Universal Spiritual Principles and that the universe is a thought of God.
  • Buddhist New Thought - Seicho No Ei is the largest New Thought denomination in the world. Often called "Truth of Life" Seicho No Ei is rooted within Buddhist teachings but includes the Bible etc.
  • Lotus Sutra New Thought - There are other New Thought organizations that begin with this Buddhist Sutra and then include other teachings.
  • Taoist New Thought which starts with the Tao, then combines it with Buddhist principle and then the bible.
  • Vedic New Thought is best articulated by Roy Eugene Davis. It combines Vedic principles with other spiritual paths.

In short, New Thought is not about the organizations that take these different approaches. New Thought is about you!

Thus celebrate New New Thought Day and traditional New Thought Day, and always celebrate New Thought Week!

When coming to a New Thought Center, you will find:

  • warm and welcoming people;
  • a participative Sunday Seminar;
  • a sacred space for prayer;
  • support for you wherever you are on your spiritual path;
  • inspiring messages;
  • Spiritual Directors who listen;
  • high-quality, contemporary, high-energy music ministry;
  • children are welcomed;
  • a variety of fun, engaging classes, workshops and activities;
  • a center that is constantly evolving, learning and transforming as you evolve, in a loving process in a compassionate community.

New Thought Day - traditionally August 23rd

New Thought Day Memorial Opportunity

In June 2011, we announced the discovery of New Thought Day on the front page of NewThoughtLibrary with the text:

"The truth, once announced,
has the power not only to renew but to extend itself.
New Thought is universal in its ideals
and therefore should be universal in its appeal
Under the guidance of the spirit,
it should grow in good works
until it embraces many lands
and eventually the whole world."

--Mr. James A. Edgerton on New Thought Day, August 23, 1915

This discovery was made in the digital archives of the library by Rev. Dr. Michael Spottiswoode. In memory of his dedication to the propagation of New Thought Teachings and honoring his discovery of New Thought Day.

This can be verified by looking at the July 1st front page of NewThoughtLibrary.com via the Way Back Machine on Archive.org

On August 23rd, 2015, New Thought Day will officially be 100 years old. Until that day, it is 99 years old.

August 23rd is the Original New Thought Day. There is also Christian New Thought Day in March. Of course, for those who truly Walk the Talk, New Thought Day is also every day of the year!

What is your favorite New Thought Day? Mine is every day!

You can train the mind; you can only open the heart. You cannot train your heart or force your feelings. Yet as your train your mind, your heart will follow. It has been proven that by using the 7 Tools of Transformation we change our lives. These are the Keys to Heaven on earth right now!

New Thought

is a Spiritual Path which affirms that humanity is in an ongoing process of co-creation with the Divine. This contrasts with those spiritual paths which push submission. This basic difference is of paramount importance. Spiritual paths which affirm the truth of co-creation and cooperation lead to higher functioning individuals and societies which empower the greatest number of souls. Spiritual paths which push submission often struggle due to oppression and generate many challenges because of the ultimate conclusions of such a path which are gradiations of BDSM societies. An all powerful God of Peace and love does not need submission to assuage its ego.

There are key questions that one can ask to determine if one is New Thought:

  • 1. Do you believe in the unity of all life and the unity of all life with the Divine Energy that is the root and fruit of all being?
  • 2. Do you believe in spiritual evolution?
  • 3. Do you believe in the goodness of Spirit and in our innate goodness?
  • 4. Do you believe that humanity has a great future and that this future is ours to co-create with each other for shared Good?
  • 5. Do you believe in responsibility and compassion?
  • 6. Do you take full responsibility for your life as a free, spontaneous, and unique individualization of the Divine?
  • 7. Do you believe that people embody Divine love through compassionate action?
  • 8. Do you believe in using doctors and healers to achieve healing and feel that any condition can be transformed through the power of the mind?
  • 9. Do you respect all love based ministries and compassionate spiritual paths?
  • 10. Do you believe in harmony among diverse peoples, cultures, families, and life styles of the world rooted in and respecting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights?
  • 11. Do you believe in spiritual transformation?
  • 12. Do you believe in believe that people, including you can evolve, grow and change for the better?

If you answered, "yes" to the above questions, then you are most likely a New Thought adherent.

New Thought History

chronicles a movement that is most often described as beginning with a man named Phineas Quimby. Yet it can be equally and validly concluded that New Thought began with the Transcendentalist movement, within the Unitarian and Congregationalist teachings, or that New Thought began with Anne Hutchinson in 1638. It can also be validly argued that New Thought does not begin until the term New Thought is used. You will need to decide that for yourself. 19th Century New Thought was largely, though not completely, Abrahamic in nature. 20th Century New Thought was more openly diverse in thought and form. The Science of Mind tradition which began in the 19th Century with John Bascom, blossomed in the 20th Century with the work of the Holmes brothers who created Religious Science (Today they call themselves Center for Spiritual Living).

The Abrahamic path within New Thought found a true champion with the creation of the UFBL which not only continued the 19th Century Abrahamic type of New Thought, but intensified it with a solid biblical approach and powerful metaphysical work that is practical and combined with finding parallel teachings in other religious traditions to support the premise they propound. The Universal Foundation for Better Living blossomed from the experiences of Rev. Dr. Johnnie Coleman at Unity Village in Misery, USA. Because New Thought is not homogeneous, and due to its nature could not be under the control of a high council or Pope type leader, new groups are forming on a regular basis: 20th Century New Thought also spawned the Holmes brothers' Religious Science and Albert Grier's Church of Truth. Toward the end of the end of the 20th Century, the Religious Scientists changed their name to Center For Spiritual Living. According to esteemed Religious Scientists such as Rev. Richard Imprescia, this was due to fears of being confused with Scientology and Christian Science. Although New Thought did not see major growth in the 20th Century, it has continued as a metaphysical tradition. Whereas old New Thought leans heavily on a process of institutionalizing potential leadership in order to inclulcate certain mindsets, New Millennial New Thought affirms the power of shared beliefs and values for networking with like minded individuals. Some feel that the reason New Thought failed to thrive in the 20th Century was due to an excessive focus on nonsense Prosperity teachings in contrast to actual prosperity teachings. Beginning around 1980, the focus of 20th Century New Thought in the United States was on what is now known as the false-Prosperity Gospel and the Law of Attraction. Perhaps this is what led to the dramatic drop in attendance at New Thought Communities across the country. The 21st Century is demonstrating growth in the number of adherents but a decline in attendance at old New Thought centers. From 2011 to 2015, 21% of the New Thought communities across the USA closed.
We feel that as New Millennial New Thought Communities are increasingly organized, we will see more people congregating into local communities. Perhaps the most important part of this trend is the new emphasis on democracy and a move away from the old false-Prosperity Gospels while adherents move toward higher principles being unveiled through the ability to both aggregate and parse information at levels previously not possible.

New Thought

is a phrase with two words: "New" and "Thought." NEW means novel, not old. THOUGHT is the result of the process of the mind. You can train the mind; you can only open the heart. You cannot train your heart or force your feelings. Yet as your train your mind, your heart will follow. It has been proven that by using the 7 Tools of Transformation we change our lives.
