Inspirational essays on thought and consciousness.
I have learned that I cannot blame others for my life, or my state of affairs - they are my creation, the end product of my thoughts and actions. Allen states that man makes or unmakes himself by the thoughts he keeps and cultivates. Man is truly is his own worst enemy!
I really resonated to his quote on fear, "Thoughts of doubt and fear never accomplish anything, and never can. They always lead to failure. Purpose, energy, power to do, and all strong thoughts cease when doubt and fear creep in." How profound and how true. How we let fear run our lives - again proving how powerful our thoughts can be. Allen further expounds by saying, "He who has conquered doubt and fear has conquered failure."
The garden of our mind is only cultivated by us. What kind of crop we want to consistently yield is solely determined on our positive, enriching, and encouraging thoughts or on our doubting, destructive and negative ones. We alone hold the key to our future, and our success, and our attainments in life. We can either have a feast or a famine - it is only up to us.
This highly inspirational book cannot help but to motivate you in some degree. I feel like I have been given the keys to a door that was once rusty and would not open, but now will yield freely in my hand. Another great quote is, "The Vision that you glorify in your mind, the Ideal that you enthrone in your heart - this you will build your life by, this you will become." This is one book that you will want to keep constantly by your side, especially for those times when you get discouraged, or when the road seems rough. Just reading one page will have you having a change of heart, with its motivation putting you back on that right path.
This book is a MUST read if you are desiring to change your negatives into positives! The power of the mind is incredible - in all areas of our life!
When you stop and think about it, most of us are don't realize how much potential power is packed between our ears. For example none of us would let someone come into our homes and throw a pails of garbage on our living room floors, yet every time we purposely expose ourselves to negativity whether it be in the name of being 'informed' (the news media) or gossip in the name of being entertained, we pollute our mental homes. We are told of the importance of a good diet and exercise, but how many of us have been told that our mental diet is the most important thing to our health and well-being?
James Allen succinctly but profoundly states that we rise or fall in proportion to the thoughts we entertain on a daily basis. Also explored in depth is the law of being: basically that a man is what he thinks about all day long. How our lives would change if all of us practiced even a fraction of what is taught in this book!
This is 'mental food' at its very best. There is no way you can read this book and not be better for it. I enjoyed it so much that I purchased an audio version read by that late actor Robert Young. I listen to it every time I feel I need a 'checkup from the neck up'.
This book was written a century ago but its message is more timely in today's world than ever before. The Truth never goes out of style and is never compromised or diminished by fad or folly. This book states eternal Truths of life for whoever is fortunate enough to read it and practice the wonderful wisdom contained within its pages.
Order it right now-you'll be glad you did for years to come.
