The supreme charm of The New Psychology is the practical character of its teachings — the clarity and simplicity of its expression. Unlike many works that attempt to present psychical truths, it is not a tangled skein of disconnected thoughts, but an orderly, logical, and well-reasoned system. The New Psychology — with a synthesis of philosophy, science, metaphysics, and religion — defines man’s place in the universe and reveals his latent powers with a vividness that reminds the reader of a lightening flash.
The seeker for truth will find in its pages the keys to the treasure house of the world’s wisdom.
The New Psychology is quite different from Haanel’s other works. In The New Psychology, Haanel expands on the ideas and theories behind mental science and offers to you many examples and proofs that bolster the claims made.
While this work is almost one hundred years old, everything holds true to this day. The New Psychology is a must for anyone who wants to understand the mental science. It is also a must for anyone who wants to thoroughly understand Haanel and his beliefs. Through his words, we can get a clearer picture of him — as a thinker, explorer, and a visionary.
Here are just a few things that you will learn as you read Charles F. Haanel’s The New Psychology…
The Master Mind is within your body and soul, yet interpenetrating both. It is the Grand Man – the God Man – of each of us. It is the same in all human beings and is what is familiarly called the “I AM.”
A Master is one who is not controlled or mastered by flesh, blood, the Devil, or others. He is not a subject, but a ruler. He knows, and he knows that he knows; because of this he is free and can be dominated by no one.
When you have reached the point where you are steadily mastering and overcoming and clothing your mind with more and more knowledge, you have your face toward the Light and are moving onward and upward.
Law becomes your servant and is no longer your master. You speak your thought or word accompanied with faith, will, and the proper mental picture, and your word accomplishes that whereunto it is sent. Or, in other words, the Creative Law hastens to fulfill your word.
Opportunity follows perception, action follows inspiration, growth follows knowledge, environment follows progress; always the mental first, then the transformation into the illimitable possibilities of character and achievement.
The progress of the United States is due to two percent of its population. In other words, all our railroads, all our telephones, our automobiles, our libraries, our newspapers, and a thousand other conveniences, comforts, and necessities are due to the creative genius of two percent of the population.
He provides the one thing which all the world demands, something which can be realized upon anywhere, at any time. It is not a slow asset; on the contrary, its value is recognized in every market. The product is thought; thought rules the world; thought rules every government, every bank, every industry, every person and every thing in existence, and is differentiated from everything else, simply and only because of thought.
Every person is what he is because of his method of thinking, and men and nations differ form each other only because they think differently.
The concentration of matter implies the dissipation of motion; conversely, the absorption of motion implies the diffusion of matter.
This accounts for the entire cycle of changes passed through by every existence. Moreover, it applies to the entire cycle of each existence, as well as to each detail of its history. Both processes are going on at every instance; but always there is a differential result is favor of one or the other. And every change, even though it be only a transposition of parts, inevitably advances one of the factors.
“The psychical method has always played an important, though largely unrecognized, part in therapeutics. It is from faith, which buoys up the spirits, sets the blood flowing more freely, and the nerves playing their parts without disturbance, that a large part of all cures arise. Despondency or lack of faith will often sink the stoutest constitution almost to death’s door; faith will enable a bread pill or a spoonful of clear water to do almost miracles of healing, when the best medicines have been given over in despair. The basis of the entire profession of medicine is faith in the doctor and his drugs and his methods.”
Mental is defined as “of or pertaining to the mind, including intellect, feeling, and will, or the entire rational nature.”
Science is knowledge gained and verified by exact observation and correct thinking.
Mental chemistry is, therefore, the science which treats of the changes that conditions undergo through the operation of the mind. As the transformations that are brought about in applied chemistry are the result of the orderly combination of materials, it follows that mental chemistry brings about results in a like manner.
Like all laws of nature, the law of mental medicine is universal in its application; and, like all the others, it is simple and easily comprehended.
Granted that there is an intelligence that controls the functions of the body in health, it follows that it is the same power or energy that fails in case of disease. Failing, it requires assistance; and that is what all therapeutic agencies aim to accomplish. No intelligent physician of any school claims to be able to do more than to “assist nature” to restore normal conditions of the body.
It was Metchnikoff who tried, after his investigations into the physical, to apply ethics to life, so that life might be lived to the full, which is the true wisdom. He called this condition orthobiosis. He held that the end of science is to rid the world of its scourges through hygiene and other measures of prophylaxis.
He then tells of the many remarkable cures which Dr. Coue proceeded to effect by no other means than suggestion to the patient that the power of healing lies within the patient himself. There was also a children’s clinic in charge of Mademoiselle Kauffmant who devotes her entire time to this work.
Germs, however, have life; they must therefore be the product of something that has life or intelligence. Spirit is the only Creative Principle in the Universe, and Thought is the only activity that spirit possesses. Therefore, germs must be the result of a mental process.
A thought goes forth from the thinker; it meets other thoughts for which it has an affinity; they coalesce and form a nucleus for other similar thoughts; this nucleus sends out calls into the formless energy wherein all thoughts and all things are held in solution; and soon the thought is clothed in a form in accordance with the character given to it by the thinker.
In its ultimate essence, energy may be incomprehensible by us except as an exhibition of the direct operation of that which we call Mind or Will.
We find, therefore, that science and religion are not in conflict, but are in perfect agreement.
In the early period we are impressed by the psychological unity of man. Details of these early races differ, of course, yet the variations are far less than one would suspect, for it is a surprising fact that in all parts of the world the minds of men, as they reach to the fundamental facts of existence, work very nearly in the same way.
The psychological likeness of the process of man’s mind is one of the most striking discoveries of modern times.
