There is a power for good in the universe, greater than you are, and you can use it. It is this thing called life. Life is in your mind, life is in your body, and life is in your affairs. Understanding this is the key to creating the life that you want to have.
In The Power of This Thing Called Life, renowned spiritual teacher Ernest Holmes explains what This Thing Called Life is and how each person can use it in a way that makes for a dynamic, zest-filled life. Chapters include “Ten Steps in Personal Achievement,” “The Contagious Disease of Anxiety,” “Spiritual Self-Reliance,” and more.
Compiled from the never-before published transcripts of Ernest Holmes’ radio program “This Thing Called Life,” The Power of This Thing Called Life is a rare gift for those interested in a fresh approach to heightened spiritual ideas.

“Students of the world, searching for something to make them whole and something to bring joy into their lives, will find answers in The Power of This Thing Called Life. Here, Ernest Holmes shares basic truths of the universe and of God that will resonate with the reader. Every sentence is filled with wisdom, insight and ways to capture the love and happiness we all seek. We have all the tools, and we’re shown how to use them. The power is within us. I was reminded throughout the book of the simple nature of the feelings, thoughts and emotions that comprise all action and reaction, and the resulting consequences.
This is an excellent book to illuminate the pure nature of God in everything. The Power of This Thing Called Life is a beacon of power and strength in a sometimes rocky existence. Our course is made straighter and stronger.”

“Newt List publications bring new life to classic works of metaphysics by revitalizing the language for the modern reader. In addition, by making the texts gender neutral, these exciting ideas about the creative power of mind become accessible in a potent new way because the barrier of antiquated writing conventions has been dropped. The Power of This Thing Called Life is beautiful, inspiring, and wonderfully engaging to read. This new book in the tradition of Newt Lists updated classics is a keeper and a must have for serious students of spirituality.”
