AS A MAN THINKETH

BY

JAMES ALLEN

 

AUTHOR OF

"FROM POVERTY TO POWER," "ALL THESE THINGS ADDED,"
"OUT FROM THE HEART," ETC--

 

Mind is the Master--power that moulds and makes
And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes
The tool of Thought, and, shaping what he wills,
Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills:
He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass,
Environment is but his looking-glass.

FOREWORD

   
THIS little volume (the result of meditation and experience) is not intended as an exhaustive treatise on the much written-upon subject of the power of thought. It is suggestive rather than explanatory, its object being to stimulate men and women to the discovery and perception of the truth that--

   "They themselves are makers of themselves."

   By virtue of the thoughts, which they choose and encourage; that mind is the master-weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance, and that, as they may have hitherto woven in ignorance and pain they may now weave in enlightenment and happiness.
