James Allen who wrote the masterpiece As A Man Thinketh “When he realizes that he is a creative power, and that he may command the hidden soil and seeds of his being out of which circumstance grow; he then becomes the rightful master of himself.”
Recently I was reading an old classic, The Message of a Master by John McDonald, and I was rocked by an incredibly insightful passage: “The cause of the confusion prevailing in your mind that weakens your thoughts is the false belief that there is a power or powers outside you greater than the power within you.”
Stop and think about that. What keeps us from attempting greater things from reaching for the brass ring in our life? What makes us take that great idea that could make our family financially secure and bury it underneath a lot of reasons why it never work? What stops us from that career change that would result in working in a profession we could really enjoy would get passionate about and just love?
There is only one thing that ever stops us from forward momentum and McDonald nailed it: “the false belief that there is a power or powers outside you greater than the power within you.” Just as it says in the metaphysical book the Alchemist … “The biggest lie in world is that we are not in control of our destiny.”
I once heard a speaker say, “The magic is in YOU!” As James Allen tells us, “once we realize that we can create our circumstances, then, and only then, are we truly the master of our life and our destiny.”
Regardless of your particular spiritual beliefs, you may find these words from the Gospel of John very enlightening, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do, shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do.” That would indicate to me that we are already “endowed” with the power to do amazing things — far more amazing than most of us will ever attempt if we’d only understand and believe that the power is within us, not outside of us.
Orison Swett Marden in the early part of the 20th century wrote “Every thought or emotion vibrates through every cell in the body and leaves an influence like itself. Did you realize that it is possible to read in your face and manner the record of your thoughts; that your face is a bulletin board upon which is advertised what has been going on in your mind for years?”
