This Category is dedicated to the works of James Allen. His classic work, â€œAs A Man Thinketh!â€ is a powerful and easily understood explanation of the truth that a person becomes and is what he or she thinks. The concept that a person can choose their thoughts and therefore choose their present and future is examined in detail in all of his books.
I highly recommend his works to all students of real and lasting positive changes. Presented within his works are clear, understandable instructions on how to become the person that you desire to be in life.
Find your purpose in life. Discover your passion and reason for being. Live you passion and your dream.
To follow, under all circumstances, the
highest promptings within you; to be
always true to the divine self; to reply upon
the inward Voice, the inward Light, and to
pursue your purpose with a fearless and
restful heart, believing that the future will
yield unto you the need of every thought
and effort; knowing that the laws of the
universe can never fail, and that your own

exactitude-this is faith and the living of
Have a thorough understanding of your
work, and let it be your own; and as you
proceed, ever following the inward Guide,

And I may stand where health, success,
Await my coming, if, each fleeting hour,
I cling to love and patience; and abide
With stainlessness; and never step aside
From high integrity; so shall I see
At last the land of immortality.
When the tongue is well controlled and
wisely subdued; when selfish impulses and
unworthy thoughts no longer rush to the
tongue demanding utterance; when the
speech has become harmless, pure,
gracious, gentle, and purposeful, and no
word is uttered but in sincerity and
truth-then are the five steps in virtuous
speech accomplished, then is the second
great lesson in Truth learned and mastered.
Make pure thy heart, and thou wilt make

Having clothed himself with humility,
the first questions a man asks himself
â€œHow am I acting towards others?â€
â€œWhat am I doing to others?â€
â€œHow am I thinking of others?â€
â€œAre my thoughts of, and acts towards
others prompted by unselfish love?â€
As a man, in the silence of his soul,
asks himself these searching questions, he
will unerringly see where he has hitherto
To dwell in love always and towards all
is to live the true life, is to have Life itself.
Knowing this, the good man gives up
himself unreservedly to the Spirit of Love,
and dwells in Love towards all, contending
with none, condemning none, but loving
The Christ Spirit of Love puts an
end, not only to all sin, but to all division
