The Mystic Path to Cosmic Power
The Greatest Secret on Earth
Happiness is yours in the here and now. The painful states of anxiety and loneliness are abolished permanently. Financial affairs are not financial problems. You are at ease with yourself. You are not at the mercy of unfulfilled cravings. Confusion is replaced with clarity. There is a relieving answer to every tormenting question. You possess a True Self. Something can be done about every unhappy condition. While living in the world you can be inwardly detached from its sorrows to live with personal peace and sanity.
How to Double Your Energy
Suppose you are working frantically around the home or at the office. Your head whirls and your nerves strain. The pressure mounts almost unbearably. You are ready to explode.
What can you do? You can free yourself completely with the practical power of self-awareness.
Here is how:
Suddenly become aware that you are rushing, that you are under pressure, that you are jittery. This is quite a different state of awareness than you might imagine. It means that you actually see yourself in this nervous state. You become — for the first time that day — conscious of your frantic state.

2240. God is purity. God is graciousness. God is pleasantness. God is everything that your heart wants. Allow yourself to grow into what God wants you to be and you’ll find that is what you wanted to be all along.

How to Become a ‘New’ You
Self-change means just one thing — self-change.
Beneficial change cannot occur through intellectual reasoning or analysis. It cannot happen, because all thought is conditioned. It can only repeat what it has been taught to repeat, based on distorted self- interest. Emerson says, “You find men talking everywhere from their memories, instead of from their understanding.” This is a great Cosmic Truth.
Secrets for Higher Success
What you want also wants you. If you seek the celestial the celestial also seeks you. There are no unanswered requests in the universe. If we do not like what we are receiving we can learn to ask for something different. Then we will find what we wish.
When knowledge of human weakness combines with knowledge of spiritual strength, a third force appears, causing an explosion of consciousness.
Your Power of Natural Knowing
The Magic Castle
Here’s a secret method for replacing fog with sunshine. When you feel scared, don't pretend you're brave. Truth gives you permission to be just as scared as you really are. Just be aware of your anxiety without worrying over it. This self-help not only banishes fear but delivers great relief. It is like a tired actor who removes his uncomfortable costume after a hard night on-stage. Since he no longer needs to impress the audience he can just relax and enjoy being himself.

Remember that what you call success or failure are simply human points of view. There exists definitely a Supreme point of view which is above these opposites, just as the sun exists above land and sea.
593. Millions of people agree that world-change starts with self-change, but few will do it.

609. A person is his private thoughts, not his public speech.

Abolish Heartache and Regret
Q: How does lack of self-reliance lead us astray?
A: People are unable to distinguish between the attraction of human personality and an attraction toward truth itself. Truth is sky high above the hypnotic spell of cunning human personality. This error leads to the idolization of charming charlatans of various kinds who claim to understand life. Self-reliance erases the error.
Q: Please comment on gullibility.
A: One way to get hurt is to believe that human personalities and social organizations have the same kindly motives they claim to have.
Solved — The Mystery of Life
Your New World of Mental Peace
It is extremely important for you to remember the following truth: these hurtful voices are not you, and they do not belong to you, but merely speak through your psychic system. Don't take them as being your own voices, any more than you take radio voices as being your own. They simply use unaware human beings. Your true nature has nothing to do with them. When finally dismissing these sinister speakers you make room for spiritual health and true life.

The absorption of these teachings creates an amazingly agile mind. No longer tied to hardened habits, it leaps like a skilled athlete from one situation to the next, handling all with ease. Having no self- centeredness, such a mind wastes no time and energy wondering how a situation might be hurtful or beneficial. Having no interference from anxious thoughts, it simply acts. When meeting a troubled person it acts wisely by not falling under the influence of the other person's gloom. When needing a new chair it simply buys a new chair it can afford without regretfully wishing it could afford a better chair. When confronted by a new challenge it walks right into it and out again, unharmed, for it knows that harm comes only by fearing the challenge.
Anyone can test all this for himself. He will then see that the great proof and the only proof is self-proof. Whoever tastes an apple for himself will never need to ask others about its flavor.

How to Be Free from Your Error of Self
The absorption of cosmic laws enables us to see, for the first time, the kind of world it really is. And it is vastly different from what we assumed.
To live rightly in this world we must first become aware of it. The problem is a man’s false assumption that he is already aware, which leaves him with no motive for investigation. Do not assume that the only existing world is that presented by the five senses and the surface mind. Merely to react to a strained relationship or to a financial problem is not the same as understanding them. Understanding comes from total awareness, which includes the mind and the senses, but is above them.
The Mystic Masters Speak
Q: What is an example of self-deception, of believing what we prefer to believe?
A: Were you to hear how your dear friends speak of you behind your back, you would never speak another word to them. (#812 – Schopenhauer)
Q: May we have a truth which can arouse this feeling?
A: A man contains all that is needful to his government within himself. He is made a law unto himself. All real good or evil that can befall him must be from himself. The purpose of life seems to be to acquaint man with himself. He is not to live in the future as described to him, but to live in the real future by living to the real present. The highest revelation is that God is in every man. (#1283 – Emerson)
Like almost everyone else, said a man to a teacher, “I do not know what it means to be spiritual. Everything I try is either artificial or impossible.”
Said the teacher, “To be truly spiritual means to be aware of what you are doing at the moment you are doing it. It means to feel yourself in action at the precise second of that action.”
“But is this awareness possible for me?”
“You could have been aware of yourself asking that question.”
Artificiality is a result of unawareness, unconsciousness; so expanding awareness leads to genuine spirituality.

Suffering is a Gigantic Hoax
644. A man who possesses real gold never bargains over it, which means that truth never compromises with dark human nature.
645. Light never battles darkness, so whenever you see a fight, it is always between two dark forces.
659. The one way to have something worthwhile to do with your life is to courageously see that you presently have nothing worthwhile.
