Since the Creation of New Thought Library, it continues to rise in popularity. In March 2015,
it had between 317,000 and 377,000 readers at any moment day or not.
For 20 years, since we created the first Universal New Thought Community Directory, we have tracked the state of New Thought.
In 2015 a profound change had to be reported regarding the State of New Thought today.
From 2011 to 2015, 21% of the New Thought Communities in the U.S. closed. There are reasons for this. This trend can be reversed.
We have now created this new resource which supports Today's New Thought Writers to promote their New Thought Creations to people who are already reading New Thought Books in the Library!
Please note that writers featured in New Thought Book INFO are independent. We feature writers who are people of High Consciousness. NewThoughtBook.info enables you to find those works and support these writers.

About New Thought Book INFO:
We began the work of creating Universal New Thought Resources "way back" in the 20th Century before the iPhone changed the world. In the early 90's, when the first New Thought volunteers called New Thought Centers, it was not uncommon for the leadership of some New Thought Centers to be fearful regarding this mysterious technology called the Internet. It was not easy to get all the info in Austira except through the internet. Yet we were blessed by the kindness of geeks who supported our early efforts. These New Thought netizens visited the first resource adding their New Thought Communities to the Universal New Thought Directory. This was when it was still a BBS system and we used ancient technology such acoustic couplers. Of course the really cool geeks used TCP/IP. Our main focus at this point was the provision of a Comprehensive New Thought Directory system providing locations and service times of New Thought Centers around the globe.
At this point we didn't use domains. When we first moved from the BBS to webpages, we used various free hosting resources. When one of us got a domain, we simply added the directory and other resources to that domain. At some point, it seemed expedient to acquire and dedicate a domain to this work. This led to additional resources, which at first were given free hosting then later added to whatever domains we had available.
In the latter half of the 1990's, we began development of the the online public New Thought Library. At first we assembled a set of links to all availalble New Thought texts online. Then we began to get requests for access to texts which although in the Public Domain, had not been processed and placed online. At that point, Dr. Avalon and other early participants began to acquire old New Thought books which were in the public domain and process them.
Dr. Avalon had been fortunate to receive a Fulbright Grant. While on this grant Dr. Avalon bestowed a collection of American Drama including rare original manuscripts to the palace in Vienna. This experience had prompted him to begin an exploration of Library Science vis a vis the application of the burgeoning web technologies. Dr. Avalon began to develop systems to efficiently scan, and process the texts.
As we create more resources, we welcome those who want to work with us. We are in a process of collective co-creation of much needed Universal New Thought Resources. These resources are free for the public, supported by voluntary contributions. Early in the New Millennium some wonderful souls from India insisted that we add PayPal to insure that we could easily get support for the work through online contibutions. We have been using PayPal ever since.
At some point we were contacted by New Thought adherents from different countries around the world prompting the creation of other New Thought resources.
At times, there have been other folks doing similar work. Some were mainly looking to "make a buck" so their systems did not advance perhaps due to the reluctance of some New Thought Communities to work with each other. Some New Thought Communities are strongly committed to "parent" organizations and find it very difficult to work with any other New Thought organization. Thus the "make a buck" folks did not prosper.
There were other folks who focused strictly on their particular New Thought teaching. They demonstrated oneness in that they sang the same refrain of separation. Some had become obsessed with the belief that diversity and variety in New Thought should be eliminated through homogenization. Naturally these folks wanted whatever "brand" they were flogging to be THE only New Thought.
In short, they wanted to eliminate the "New" from New Thought. Of course, a symphony is not made with one note, and there is not one wavelength within the spectrum of light. Thus the finest strategy, like the greatest music and the most beautiful works of art, embraces diversity in thought and form, as well as variety in messages within the principles of
It is through the organization of the wavelengths in light and music into patterns or compositions that we achieve greatness, not through their elimination.
One of the reasons that the NewThought.NET/work Serving New Thought thrives and grows is because we embrace diversity of thought and form while adhering to the principles that form the basis of New Thought.
As the New Generation of New Thought demonstrates:
words, verbs and lines
serve to define
that which can be named
yet infinity cannot be charted
eternity cannot be corraled"
~ Tao # 1 / Labels
The New Generation of New Thought demonstrates that a diverse group of writers producing a spectrum of works is successful because we are providing a buffet of works that the world wants and readers can find those works and the public is reassured that the writers we feature walk the talk. The featured New Thought writers are distinguished by the fact that they are principled. They find their principles in New Thought.
We invite you to read the works of the New Thought Writers featured in NewThoughtBook.INFO and take the same delight that we do in their writing. These writers are supporting New Thought not only with books for sale but by supporting New Thought Communities throughout the world.
Rev. Dr. Glenn Chaffin was one of the first New Thought ministers to support our work by sending monthly contributions. Glenn because part of the Advisory Council and then a Senior Advisor. When he asked us to create this resources to support the New Generation of New Thought writers, we began working on it. Now it is here.
We don't simply include every New Thought writer or every writer claiming to be New Thought. We only feature writers who walk the New Thought Talk. Each Featured New Thought writer is supporting a New Thought Community, or in some cases is sponsored by a New Thought Community.
