Can people really materialize their needs through spiritual practices? So very many people over the past 100 years have been attracted to Metaphysical New Thought by the lure of what they personally can acquire. Certainly there are human needs of a roof overhead, food on the table, clothes on one's back, and other basic necessities. It is then certainly understandable that a person would be attracted to a philosophical theology that offers promise or hope that a person can meet his or her basic needs, and yes, be a prosperous person materially. And, all this is in direct contrast to more fundamentalist religion that has either directly or indirectly suggested to followers that being prosperous is somehow sinful or not being religious.
Over many decades it was my God-bestowed privilege to speak before many metaphysically oriented audiences. I often experienced sadness as I did, because the vast majority of those who had practiced Metaphysical New Thought had not, in Metaphysical New Thought vocabulary, demonstrated or materialized what they had hoped.
Since 1959, Dr. Masters had conducted full time research and teaching into the exploration of consciousness, synthesizing results from research experience with science, psychology and the mystical teachings of Christ and others. This is the basis and foundation of the life improvement instruction and consciousness exploration practice that he shared with those seeking a more enlightened spirituality with which to live their lives. We are now in the privileged process of releasing hundreds of these "Timeless Wisdom" lectures that haven't been available since they were first recorded, dating all the way back to the early 1970's.
