Mentalism
The principle of mentalism explains that all the phenomenal world or universe is simply a Mental Creation of “THE ALL, subject to the laws of Created Things,” and that “the universe, as a whole, and in its parts or units, has its existence in the Mind of THE ALL, in which Mind we ‘live and move and have our being.’” To any student of spirituality or comparative religion, this idea will be familiar.




The universe is the result of conscious creation, explained however you want to explain it. It really doesn’t matter whether you think the world was created in 7 literal days as documented in Genesis, or if you believe creation happened over a period of long years of adaptation and evolution toward specific results. Creation still happens. Creation still takes something called “thought” either conscious or subconscious, spiritual or physical. I’m not the first to equate this with the concepts of quantum physics that teach us to understand all possibilities exist at once and that it takes an observer (some mental action) to manifest one of the potential states of being. Whatever your religion or even in the lack of religion, all can agree that creation of something from nothing, or something from nothing-much, is a magical event, and is worthy of the label “spirit.”
