THE HISTORY: AWAKENING TO HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS

"If she's your mother (Pearl C. Wood), then I'm your father!"
ERNEST HOLMES

Addressing Triangular's congregation on 52nd & Wadsworth; early 1950's)

Dr. Ernest Holmes founded the International Religious Science movement, wrote The Science of Mind and numerous other books on metaphysics and originated the international periodical Science of Mind Magazine which has been in continuous monthly publication since 1927. Holmes's Science of Mind teaching is recognized today as one of the leading viewpoints in modern metaphysics. It is a spiritual philosophy that has brought to people throughout the world a working cosmology - a sense of their relationship to God and their place in the Universe, and a positive, supportive approach to daily living.

Dr. Ernest Holmes was born on January 21, 1887, on a small Maine farm, the youngest of the nine sons of William and Anna Holmes. With devoted, intelligent parents, the boys were happy, unaware of their poverty. At 17, Ernest was a student in Bethel preparatory school, but he spent most of his time out of doors, asking himself, "What is God? Who am I? Why am I here?" He mentally tangled with all theological preachers and doubted the answers he got in chur€h. At age 18 he left school and formal education forever and set out on his lifelong course of independent thinking. "Reading Emerson is like drinking water to me," he said later. His metaphysical studies intensified his quest for Truth, leading him to - and through - literature, art, science, philosophy, and religion.

In 1914, Ernest moved to Venice, California, to be near his brother, Fenwicke, who was a Congregational minister there. Working for the City of Venice and pursuing his studies, he discovered the writings of Thomas
Troward, which fed the flame ignited by Emerson earlier. Almost casually, he began speaking on Troward's writings to small but ever-growing groups. Later, as his audiences grew, he was ordained as a minister of the Divine Science Church .
