Dr. Joseph Murphy's The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

Well I'm back.
I was offline for about a month and now I'm busy trying to get caught up on everything.

One of the things I did while I was offline was read Dr. Joseph Murphy's "The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind".
You may know already if you are a regular reader of this blog that Dr. Murphy studied under Abdullah, the same man that taught Neville Goddard.

Neville's approach and Murphy's approach are a little different though.
To put it simply, Neville to me is more metaphysical and Murphy is more scientific.

One major point of difference to me in reading the book is that Murphy does not advocate the "I AM" principle.
At one point, Murphy even says not everyone should say "I am wealthy" if you are not, because your subconscious knows you are lying to it.
He advocates just saying "Wealth" over and over because it is not a statement, but an idea.
I wonder if Murphy and Neville ever had any discussions on this topic?
I would have loved to be a fly on the wall there.

Murphy also seems to advocate looking at various manifesting techniques to see which one works best for you.
And as with Neville, there are a lot of Bible quotes through out the book.

And I found something very important to me on page 107, "The Law of Reverse Effort".
It's how when we put too much effort into manifesting, we begin to try to use willpower instead of imagining.
" Use no willpower. Instead, visualize the end and the state of freedom it produces."

Of course this goes back to thinking from the end.
See the result, not how you got there.

Despite the differences, if you have read a lot of Neville and a lot of Murphy, you will begin to see the similarities between the two more than the differences.
I think the two compliment each other.
And with over a million copies in print, someone must agree with me.

I have read that some think Murphy was ripping off the Master Key System with his work.
But I still think there is nothing new under the sun, and everyone's techniques will have similarites with another.
