The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind - this week's topic - was offered by Pravin. It is a popular self-help book written by Dr. (Psychology PHD from University of Southern California (USC)) Joseph Murphy in 1963. Murphy was born in Ireland, raised a Roman Catholic but eventually left Catholicism and became a divined minister in the New Thought Church of Devine Science, a brief history of which is available here.
Murphy spent considerable time in India with gurus learning Hindu philosophy. I'll leave it to Ramana, Pravin and Maria to connect those dots to today's topic.
Murphy - in The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind - says “The way to get rid of darkness is with light; the way to overcome cold is with heat; the way to overcome the negative thought is to substitute the good thought. Affirm the good, and the bad will vanish." To me that is a typical power of positive speaking notion. Nothing that has not been said many times before by other proponents like Norman Vincent Peale.
“I like money, I love it, I use it wisely, constructively, and judiciously. Money is constantly circulating in my life. I release it with joy, and it returns to me multiplied in a wonderful way. It is good and very good. Money flows to me in avalanches of abundance. I use it for good only, and I am grateful for my good and for the riches of my mind.”
I'll end this little ditty with one last Murphy quote from the book -
“Success means successful living. When you are peaceful, happy, joyous, and doing what you love to do, you are successful.” Now that is something I can agree with completely. I can see why so many folks are enamored of Dr. Murphy and his book.
Be sure to check on my cohorts to see what they have to say on this topic - Ramana, Pravin and Maria.
See ya next week, same bat time and same bat channel.
