Your Mental Attitude is The Key!
As a being of thought, your dominant mental attitude will
determine your condition in life. It will also be the
gauge of your knowledge and the measures of your attainment.
The so-called limitations of your nature are the boundary
lines of your thoughts; they are self-erected fences, and
can be drawn to a narrower circle, extended to a wider, or
be allowed to remain. You are the thinker of your thoughts
and as such you are the maker of yourself and condition.
Thought is causal and creative, and appears in your character
and life in the form of results. There are no accidents in
your life. Both its harmonies and antagonisms are the
responsive echoes of your thoughts. A man thinks, and his
If your dominant mental attitude is peaceable and lovable,
bliss and blessedness will follow you; if it be resistant
and hateful, trouble and distress will cloud your pathway.
Out of ill-will will come grief and disaster; out of good
will, healing and reparation. You imagine your circumstances
as being separate from yourself, but they are intimately
related to your thought world. Nothing appears without an
adequate cause. Everything that happens is just. Nothing is
fated, everything is formed.
As you think, you travel; as you love, you attract. You are
today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be
tomorrow where your thoughts take you. You cannot escape the
result of your thoughts, but you can endure and learn, can
accept and be glad.
You will always come to the place where your love (your most
abiding and intense thought) can receive its measure of
gratification. If your love be base, you will come to a base
place; if it be beautiful, you will come to a beautiful place.
You can alter your thoughts, and so alter your condition.
Strive to perceive the vastness and grandeur of your
responsibility. You are powerful, not powerless. You are as
powerful to obey as you are to disobey; as strong to be pure
as to be impure; as ready for wisdom as for ignorance. You
can learn what you will, can remain as ignorant as you choose.
If you love knowledge you will obtain it; if you love wisdom
you will secure it; if you love purity you will realise it.
All things await your acceptance, and you choose by the
thoughts which you entertain.
A man remains ignorant because he loves ignorance, and chooses
ignorant thoughts; a man becomes wise because he loves wisdom
and chooses wise thoughts. No man is hindered by another; he
is only hindered by himself. No man suffers because of
another; he suffers only because of himself. By the noble
Gateway of Pure Thought you can enter the highest Heaven; by
the ignoble doorway of impure thought you can descend into the
Your mental attitude towards others will faithfully react upon
yourself, and will manifest itself in every relation of your
life. Every impure and selfish thought that you send out comes
back to you in your circumstances in some form of suffering;
every pure and unselfish thought returns to you in some form
of blessedness. Your circumstances are effects of which the
cause is inward and invisible. As the father-mother of your
thoughts you are the maker of your state and condition. When
you know yourself, you will perceive, that every event in
your life is weighed in the faultless balance of equity. When
you understand the law within your mind you will cease to
regard yourself as the impotent and blind tool of
circumstances, and will become the strong and seeing master.
