What It Is
This is a book designed to teach the reader that habitual thinking and imagery mould, fashion and create destiny and that as a man thinketh in his subconscious, so is he.
This book essentially equates your subconscious mind with God, which is likely a different and challenging paradigm for many to accept.
Joseph Denis Murphy was born in Ballydehob
County Cork , Ireland, the son of a private boys’ school headmaster and raised a Roman Catholic .
He joined the Jesuits . In his twenties, before being ordained a priest , an experience with healing prayer led him to leave the Jesuits and emigrate to the United States in 1922; he journeyed as a steerage passenger on board the S/S Cedric , sailing from Liverpool, England, to the Port of New York; on the ship’s passenger manifest, his occupation was listed as chemist, the British term for pharmacist.
In New York City, he became a professional pharmacist inNew York City (having a degree in chemistry by that time).
Here he attended the Church of the Healing Christ (part of the Church of Divine Science ), where Emmet Fox had become minister in 1931.
Murphy traveled to India and spent lot of time with Indian sages, learning Hindu philosophy. He later on formed a new church in America with Hindu ideologies.
In the mid-1940s, he moved to Los Angeles, where he met Religious Science founder Ernest Holmes, and was ordained into Religious Science by Holmes in 1946, thereafter teaching at
Rochester, New York , and later at the Institute of Religious Science in Los Angeles.
A meeting with Divine Science Association president Erwin Gregg led to him being reordained into Divine Science, and he became the minister of the Los Angeles Divine Science Church in 1949, which he built into one of the largest New Thought congregations in the country.
In the next decade, Murphy married, earned a
PhD in psychology from the University of Southern California and started writing.
After his first wife died in 1976, he remarried to a fellow Divine Science minister who was his longstanding secretary. He moved his ministry to
Laguna Hills, California , where he died in 1981.
His wife, Dr. Jean Murphy, continued in this ministry for some years afterwards.
What The Book Talks About
Murphy saw the subconscious mind as a darkroom within which we develop the images that are to be lived out in real life. While the conscious mind sees an event, takes a picture of it and remembers it, the subconscious mind works backwards, ‘seeing’ something before it happens.
The subconscious responds to habit and habitual thinking. Being totally neutral in a moral sense, it is happy to adopt any habit as ‘normal’ – good or bad.
We let negative thoughts drop into the subconscious every minute of our lives, then are surprised when they find expression in day to day experiences and relationships.
While there are some things that will happen to us that we had no role in creating, these are in fact rare. Mostly, the bad that happens is in us already, waiting for the light of day.
Understanding your subconscious mind as a photographic mechanism removes the emotion and struggle from changing your life, because if it is simply a matter of replacing existing mental images with new ones, you begin to see the ease with which you may change.
Murphy says,’The law of your mind is the law of belief itself,.
What we believe makes us who we are. William James observed that whatever people expect to be true, will be so, irrespective of whether the object of their belief exists in fact.
In the West we have made ‘the truth’ our highest value; this motivation, while important, is weak next to the actual power of belief in shaping our lives. Whatever you give your subconscious – false or true, good or evil – it will register as fact. Be careful not to joke about misfortune, as the subconscious has no sense of humour.
‘If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth’ (Mark 9:23). In all the old rituals of ancient times, with their weird mixtures and incantations, it was the power of suggestion and acceptance in the subconscious mind that healed.
Even today, doctors report the power of placebos to produce miraculous recoveries if accompanied by doubt-free instructions that ‘this will do the trick’.
Miracles of healing, the author says, are simply the body’s obeying of the subconscious mind’s knowledge of ‘perfect health’ when the questioning nature of the normal conscious mind is silenced.
The first half of the book is the best, as it explains how the subconscious works. The second half deals with its role and power to transform in areas like marriage, human relations, scientific discovery, sleep, fear, forgiveness and ‘eternal youth’.
Best Place to Buy The Book
The best place I recommend you buy the book is on Amazon. The price there is fair and according to my research, it is the most trusted online store at the moment. It will also be very convenient for you to buy there if you were planning to do more online shopping today.
This is a well written book and is worth both the money and the time.
However ,the book touches on religion so it may affect reading of the book by people from other religions.
Feel free to leave in your comments as well
as your questions.
I hope you found this review useful to you.
