19. The Dawn of A New Age


The age of materialism is passing away ; and the pessimism and infidelity of the past, with which it was so closely associated, no longer fill the minds of men with discord and unrest. As a transitory condition it was doubtless neces- sary, because the real side of life is made evident through contrast. Probably the world has never seen nor known an age that has been more densely materialistic than the one just passed; not that it was altogether physical in its nature, but the intellect of man was used to sub- vert and subordinate the spiritual sense to the intellectual reasoning and sense desires. On the physical side of life the world has been ransacked for every kind of mineral poison with the expectation that through their introduction into the physical organism health and strength would be the result. In man's intellectual and religious world the spirit has played no part. Dogmatic utterances, binding creeds, and the degradation of himself to a "worm of the dust" and a miserable sinner," have served to fill up the sum of his intellectual vagaries. But this is all passing away before the coming of a newer and higher conception of life; and this New Thought lays its foundation in an Omnipotent Life and a Universal Intelligence acting through universal law — law while exact- ing conformity to its requirements, shows itself to be beneficent in character.

In the mind of man there is the dawning of a new and vital fact that the authority of law is resident in his own life; that health, strength, and happiness, as conditions of mind and body, must be made manifest through conscious effort on his part by the use of spiritual qualities and mind-faculties; that through the indwelling spirit his mind must be quickened and renewed and his body strengthened and made whole. In giving the contents of this book to the world the author earnestly hopes that the reader may find something that will prompt him to make a more serious and thoughtful study of life and its requirements.

Faithfully yours, CHARLES BRODIE PATTERSON. THE SCHUYLER, 69 West 45th Street, New York City.
