Creative Mind, by Ernest Holmes, stresses that our thoughts are creative forces we can use to create the life we want. In the book, Ernest Holmes warns us that negative thinking attracts an unwanted life, and for this reason, we must only think about what we want.
The book has enlightening lessons which make you realize that you are the Creator of your life. I gathered the following remarkable teachings from the book.
- Man and God are One
God and Man are both Life, and you cannot separate life from life. Separating us from the Creator means that there is a different element between human-beings and God. However, there is no different element between us and The Creator, because we were made out of God. Therefore, we are one with God.
‘My father and I are one.’ – Jesus Christ
- Man and God have a similar creative process
God uses his thoughts to create the universe, while we also use our thoughts to form our world. Besides this, as God creates the things we can see from things we can’t see, we also make visible things from our unseen thought forces.
- We must only think about what we wish to experience
We attract in life what we mainly think about. For this reason, we must only think about what we want because thinking about what we don’t want will attract what we don’t want.
- If you want money you must acquire a money-consciousness
Believe and feel that the Universe is bringing you the amount of money you need. Know that you have the amount of money you desire, and be thankful for it. Also, never think about the lack of money. Instead, believe that you have more than enough money.
‘See money coming from all directions.’ – Ernest Holmes
We must work if we want to fall in alignment with our desires. And when we work, we must never work with doubt or fear. Instead, we must work believing that we are working with an Infinite Power which never makes mistakes or fails.
- Think positively about God
Think positively about God. Realize that God is good, and he only wants good things to happen to you. You must thank him for his goodness, and know that you already have what you want.
You will be led out of your hardships if you have a constant positive attitude towards God.
- How To Develop Your Intuition
Find a place where you can sit in silence, and think that The Creator is guiding you. Then imagine The Creator’s thought penetrating your mind so that it guides you. Trust the first idea that comes to your mind even when it is the opposite of what you expected.

8 Key Learnings From Eckhart Tolle’s Book: A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose
Eckhart Tolle, in his book: A New Earth, teaches the negative effects of the ego, and the factors that strengthen it. Also, he teaches how to transcend the ego, and stop identifying yourself with temporary things.
The book enables readers to shift their consciousness and live a fulfilling life. Here are the primary lessons I learned from it.
- Stop Labeling Things
The naming of both living and non-living things results in us failing to realize the true nature of everything. Avoid labeling things, and you will realize that everything is a mystery.
For instance, when you see an ant, don’t call it ant, just see it as a six-legged creature with consciousness and you will realize how mysterious the ant is. Similarly, when you see a bird, don’t think of it as a bird, instead, think of it as a creature with flying abilities, and you will realize that the bird is a miracle.
‘When you don’t cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life that was lost a long time ago.’ – Eckhart Tolle
- How Companies Trick You Into Buying Useless Things At A High Price
Many companies make you buy valueless things at a high price by making you believe that these items will add immense value to your life. They make you believe that you will be happy or famous if you buy expensive products such as Gucci or Louis Vuitton bags. However, these products become valueless when many people buy them.
- How to let go of the attachment to material things
The attachment to material things is disastrous as it might result in chronic worry, anxiety, and unhappiness. We must, therefore, learn to let go of this attachment. But how do we let go?
Eckhart Tolle teaches that we can let go by realizing our attachment. Secondly, he teaches that this attachment disappears when we stop seeking happiness and security from these things.
- Poverty is a result of the ego
Everyone in this world can have more than enough. However, some egocentric individuals amass excess resources and force a large percentage of the world to share what is left. Their egos make them not to care that their greed is resulting in people lacking basic resources.
- The adverse effect of identifying yourself with your physical appearance
The modern society has been tricked into believing that beautiful, curvy girls and strong handsome men are the most valuable individuals. This belief has resulted in most of us using our physical appearance to determine our self-worth.
Little do we know that identifying ourselves with our physical appearance can lead to chronic stress and anxiety when our physical appearance fades. Beautiful girls and handsome men usually descend into depression when their beauty starts fading.
- The definition of Spiritual Awakening
According to Eckhart Tolle, spiritual awakening is the realization that what you think, experience, and perceive is not who you are, and that you can never find your true self in material things.

- Wanting to be right all the time.
- Showing off
- Feeling bad about other people’s success.
8. Give what you want to get what you need
Give anything you think people are not giving you. For instance, if people neither love nor respect you, you must start loving and respecting people.
You always receive what you give. Therefore, give away what you think is inadequate, and soon you will have more than enough. As Eckhart Tolle puts it, ‘whatever you think the world has failed to give you, you already have, but you will never know you have it unless you allow it to flow out.’

Six Powerful Spiritual Teachings From Osho’s Book:God’s Got A Thing About You
Osho’s Book, God’s Got A Thing About You, provides a dialogue between a master and his disciple. The disciple asks his master many spiritual questions which the master answers wisely.
The master provides wonderful spiritual teachings about God, the ego, anxiety, dealing with negativity, and so on. The book is enlightening, and reading it will enable you to realize many secrets to spiritual enlightenment.
Here, are 6 wonderful teachings Osho provides in the Book
- Darkness Disappears When We Discover Our Light
Everything in the universe including us is made of light because matter is condensed light. Osho teaches that our world brightens when we discover this light because we will start perceiving everything including hardships as a good and necessary part of our existence.
Therefore, we perceive some things as good and others bad, because we have not yet discovered our inner light which eliminates the barriers of our perception.
- Work On Your Inner Self and the External Conditions Will Work In Your Favour
Never become too concerned with your external conditions because you don’t possess the power to completely change them. Instead, put all your energy in the inner journey, and what you want will come to you with minimal effort.
As Jesus puts it, ‘seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all these things shall be given unto you.’ When asked where the kingdom of God is, Jesus replied. ‘it is within you.’ Jesus also knew that working on your inner self will automatically heal your external conditions.
- How to deal with negative thoughts
The best way to deal with negative thoughts is to watch them, and allow yourself to feel negative. Besides this, never worry or identify with them because doing so intensifies them. Realize that these thoughts have nothing to do with you, and you will be peaceful.
- Self-acceptance leads to creativity
Self-acceptance makes you thankful and glad to be alive, and creativity naturally arises from gratitude and gladness. Besides this, self-acceptance results in good mental health hence increasing your creative abilities. That being said, we should love ourselves, and accept what and who we are.
- Negativity Is a Sign of Growth
A negative state of mind proves that you are growing. If you are constantly positive, and you have nothing to worry about, then you are not growing. Everyone that grows must face obstacles hence leading to negativity. Even rivers have to pass around mountains, rocks, and through valleys before they reach the ocean.
- All people are just like you
If you keenly observe your family, friends, and neighbors, you will realize that everybody is just like you. Everybody has problems, everybody is anxious, and everybody is afraid of taking risks. For this reason, there is nothing abnormal about your fears, doubts, and anxieties because everybody is experiencing them.
