See the quote from New Thought Movement page by Alan Anderson:

"Using the title of a famous book by Brother Lawrence, New Thought is "the practice of the presence of God," but unlike conventional mysticism, which emphasizes contact or union with God for its own sake, New Thought adds to this most important side of mysticism, the practice of the presence of God for practical purposes. To those who object that one should not use God, New Thought replies that there is nothing but God to use, and/or that God wants us to have the best in all aspects of living, that God constantly offers this to us, and that in accepting it we are living as God wants us to live."

Both the Contemplative Spirituality Movement and the New Thought Movement are rooted in mystical paganism.
