The Science of Being Well
by Wallace D Wattles
A radical book when it was published in 1910, it’s still radical today.
The work of Wallace Wattles, The Science of Being Well does for health what his first book, The Science of Getting Rich does for wealth.
”As its title asserts, the book deals with science, not speculation. The monistic theory of the universe - the theory that matter, mind, consciousness and life are all manifestations of one substance - is now accepted by most thinkers; and if you accept this theory, you cannot deny the logical conclusions you will find herein, “ Wallace tells us in his preface.
“If the tissues of your body have not been so destroyed that continued life is impossible, you can get well; and if you will think and act in a Certain Way, you will get well,” he adds.
Wallace’s style is dated, but it’s timeless: “Remember that the SCIENCE OF BEING WELL claims to be a complete and sufficient guide in every particular. Concentrate upon the way of thinking and acting it prescribes, and follow it in every detail, and you will get well; or if you are already well, you will remain so. Trusting that you will go on until the priceless blessing of perfect health is yours,” he tells us.
A perfect companion to The Science of Getting Rich, this is a classic for anyone curious about the metaphysics of health.
