People have asked us whether it’s arrogant to talk about the Principles as spiritual truths, rather than as someone’s theory. Principles, in every field of endeavor, once discovered, explain everything, no exceptions. The Principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought explain how the experience of life is created, why it is changeable, and why as long as we are alive, we have the power to change. It explains where beliefs and theories come from – the power of Thought. Without Principles, there would be no theories. Once people discover Principles, they need no more theories; they understand how something works and they are free from needing to keep looking for new theories to explain exceptions.
