Before "New Age" there was "New Thought," a philosophy that sought God through metaphysics and was wildly popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
American mystic and best-selling author RALPH WALDO TRINE (1866-1958) was one of the most significant writers on New Thought principles, and in this delightful work, Trine lays down a creed on living an honest, fearless, just, and joyful life.
He pledges, and asks us to pledge:
. to aid in righting wrongs
. to "love the fields and the wild flowers"
. to act upon our own convictions
. to "get up immediately when we stumble"
. and 13 more.
On the Open Road is perfect as a gift to someone needing inspiration-or to give ourselves a boost of confidence.
