PREFACE


   SO universal is the habit of blaming circumstances or other peoplefor the troubles of our own lives that I know a strong assertion of the fact thatthe source of all trouble lies entirely within ourselves will meet with contradictionand resentment from many readers. It takes courage to look to one's self entirelyfor pain which seems to be caused by others, but if once we do it, and are thoroughlyclean-cut about it in every thought and word and action, the release from bondageseems almost miraculous.
   When I say "look to ourselves" I do not mean necessarilythat we are to blame. Often we have inherited tendencies for which we are not inthe least to blame until we find them out, and cutting ourselves off from bondageto circumstances or to other people enables us to find them out, -- then of coursewe are to blame if we do not work in the way to conquer them.
   As gradually we learn that it is our own attitude toward life thatmakes us suffer, not the circumstances and people in life, we come nearer and nearerto our freedom. I do not imagine that any one ever reaches entire freedom in thislife, -- but we can go a long way in our process toward it, -- and, as we steadilyinsist upon keeping to the. straight road, the way grows more and more interestingand the contrast is so great between the habitual and customary bondage to peopleand circumstances and the healthy habit of working to throw off such bondage, asto give us always a growing sense of relief which is delightful.
   The tendency is, when we read a book which has in it more or lessof practical truth, to say, How good this would be for so-and-so but this book, dearreader, although I hope you may give it where it is useful, is primarily written.for YOU.
