The Principles of Successful Living

By Dr. Jim Turrell

One of my favorite quotes from Dr. Holmes’ is on page 267 of the Science of Mind text. “No person whose entire time is spent in the contemplation of limitation can demonstrate freedom from such limitation!”  

This is from a section of the book that explores the Principles of Successful Living. A powerful exposition on what we must practice if we want to live a life that is free, prosperous, and successful.

Although I do not focus on success, I realize it is an important part of what most feel is an important goal. No one wants to be a failure, but success is not about achievement. Success is not a goal, it is a conscious attitude that propels my momentum and keeps me focused on my growth and unfoldment. The Science of Mind is a consciousness that says, “…we are surrounded by a Universal Mind, into which we think.” This Mind, which is also the Law of Creation automatically, creates whatever we think into it. This creation, however, is not something we take. It is something we BECOME.

This series of four-talk’s starts with, How to live a life of Fulfillment and Happiness using Spirit and Mental Law. Holmes refers to a mental avenue, which we must provide so the Law may operate. This law is so impersonal, “it doesn’t care who uses it, nor for what purpose.”

My second talk will be about, The Rules that govern Mental Equivalents, Prayer, faith and Perfect Action. We tend to look outside of ourselves for the authority to act and speak our word. This misdirected focus is a common error that leads us into the temptation to believe our life is not perfect.

My third and fourth messages will be about the, Law of Attraction and How to Bring the Principles to Bare upon Healing.

Another favorite quote is, “Faith is a mental attitude which is so convinced of its own idea—which so completely accepts it—that any contradiction is unthinkable and impossible.” Join me and I guarantee a new idea of success will rise to this occasion and turn everyone’s life into a greater and greater experience of love.
