Prosperity through the knowledge and power of the mind  

Prosperity through the knowledge and power of the mind



This hand-book of Prosperity was written on the basis, that thought is a substantial influence in the world like electricity, steam, heat, and light. That man can control, direct, transform, and dissipate his thoughts in the same way that he manipulates the forces that are evident to his five senses. If the man who takes this book has studied psychology and metaphysics from this viewpoint, he doubtless has had proof of this thought power.


If he has not, then let him approach this book with a fair mind willing to investigate and not to judge until all the evidence is in, and a thorough trial has been given to the practices and applications, recommended. In many cases, the simple perusal of the book will be sufficient to bring about a marked change for the better in one's affairs. But the most earnest desire of the author is, not that one shall be merely prospered in his worldly affairs by this volume, but that the little book shall prove the door of a new life. And that the reader shall go on, studying other w.orks, of like nature, until he knows all the joy and freedom, that have come to the many, who have found their peace and happiness by living the principles, that are here upheld. The Author will always be glad to hear from those who have been benefited from these teachings.

It belongs to the people of God. Its occupancy by the selfish and carnal is like the Hittites, Canaanites, etc., possessing The Promised Land, at the time the Israelites began their march, under Moses, out of Egypt to regain their own country. 

The land according to the spiritual spies (Num. 13) was most desirable, a land flowing with milk and honey, a land of the olive and the vine. This innocent land was sweet and pure and goodly even though exploited by the heathen. So are worldly riches, impersonal, good, useful, commanding the world's respect. Let us be true and not despise that which shadows a divine blessing, nor yet, on the other hand, lust for that which is not the real riches, for "how hardly do they that trust in riches enter the kingdom of heaven !" a saying that applies to the eager, anxious poor, as well as the besotted rich. It is not money itself that is the root of all evil money is nothing of itself but a symbol. It is the love of money that makes the terrible trouble in families and between friends and spoils the candidate for spiritual powers and illumination. 

The first step in prosperous attainment is to have the right attitude of mind and heart towards world- wealth. To see that prosperity and spirituality must be wedded here upon the earth and Man must be the word that makes the marriage. Too long has prosperity been looked upon as material and carnal, like the untrue wife described in Hosea II. Forgetting the source of her riches, "she did not know that I gave her corn and wine and oil and multi- plied her silver and gold" a Dame Fortune, the scarlet woman, fickle and false. 

Too long has spirituality like an austere monk, ascetic, condemnatory, impractical and exclusive, repudiated her and not known "whom God hath joined" man cannot keep asunder. That old spirituality is dead all hail to the New, that does not put off the kingdom of heaven to a state after death, but realizes that, here and now, is the place and time for the riches of the kingdom to be made manifest. Man, like an officiating priest, marries these that have seemed two, and even in opposition, by (1) believing in their union, (2) by revealing their true character. Prosperity is spiritual, and Spirituality prospers. Prosperity is of God, like Life, Health and Strength. It is man's privilege to use these divine gifts as he wills; he may use his strength to knock another down; he may use his health to impose his appetites on others, but these uses do not lessen the fact that strength and health are the gifts of God. 

A man may misuse his prosperity, may ascribe it to sources, dishonest and selfish, but those are his mistakes the truth is still that that which is universally good in itself is of like origin, the Good, and prosperity originates with the All-Prosperous One, who makes all things good and very good and never knows failure. There is not one good that man pursues but, when regarded in its purity and from the highest viewpoint, cannot be identified with God. "I am the Lord thy God which brought thee out of the . . . house of bondage" (Ex. 20:2). I am the Lord your Good that de- livered you from that great trouble, that saved you from that mistake, failure, or other liability the evil that beset you.
