Health and Wealth from Within
The adherents of "New Thought"-a belief system popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries that encouraged a proto-New Age brand of self-discovery-vehemently believed in the concept of "mind over matter." This 1909 work, something of a lost classic of New Thought, adjures readers to find the source of health, happiness, and material well being deep within them. Author WILLIAM ELMER TOWNE (b. 1874), husband of the influential New Thought editor and writer Elizabeth Towne, explains how the creative and potent "thought-force" within us all can bring us: . the awakening of the soul . harmony in the home . supreme truth . practical self-healing . longer life . and much more. A fascinating artifact of pop philosophy a century ago, this remains an intriguing read today.
