As a Man Thinketh

…from the essay As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

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.

 

“Thought in the mind hath made us, What we are
By thought was wrought and built. If a man’s mind
Hath evil thoughts, pain comes on him as comes
The wheel the ox behind….

..If one endure
In purity of thought, joy follows him
As his own shadow–sure.”

 

“So You will be what you will to be;
Let failure find its false content
In that poor word, ‘environment,’
But spirit scorns it, and is free.

“It masters time, it conquers space;
It cowes that boastful trickster, Chance,
And bids the tyrant Circumstance
Uncrown, and fill a servant’s place.

“The human Will, that force unseen,
The offspring of a deathless Soul,
Can hew a way to any goal,
Though walls of granite intervene.

“Be not impatient in delays
But wait as one who understands;
When spirit rises and commands
The gods are ready to obey.”

After A Year

It’s already been more than a year since my first post. Since this blog hasn’t been updated at all during a span of more than one year, I’ve decided to write a post for only once a year or if I feel like it. I also made some minor changes to the site.

With that said, I’ll welcome anyone who wishes to post something worth posting. Use the contact form or leave a comment.
