This page offers you a daily dose of James Allen. Here you’ll find today’s entries from James Allen’s book of meditations for every day in the year and Morning and evening thoughts:
He who will purify himself will destroy all his ignorance.
HE who governs his tongue is greater than a successful disputant in the arena of intellectualism ; he who controls well his mind is more powerful than the king of many nations ; and he who holds himself in entire subjection is more than gods and angels. When a man who is enslaved by self realises that he must work out his own salvation, in that moment he will rise up in the dignity of his divine manhood and say, "Henceforward I will be a master in Israel, and not a slave in the House of Bondage."
Not until a man realises this, and commences to patiently purify his inner life, can he find the way which leads to lasting peace.
A life of perfect peace and blessedness by means of self-government and self-enlightenment.
There is no strife, no selfishness, in the
Kingdom; there is perfect harmony,
equipoise, and rest.
Those who live in the Kingdom of
Love, have all their needs supplied by
the Law of Love.
As self is the root cause of all strife
And suffering, so Love is the root cause
of all peace and bliss.
Those who are at rest in the Kingdom,
do not look for happiness in any outward
possessions. They are freed from all anxiety
and trouble and, resting in Love, they are
the embodiment of happiness.
Let it not be supposed that the children of
The Kingdom live in ease and indolence
(these two sins are the first that have
to be eradicated when the search for the
Kingdom is entered upon); they live in a
peaceful activity; in fact, they only truly
live, for the life of self, with its train of
worries, griefs, and fears, is not real life.
The children of the Kingdom are
Known by their life, they manifest the fruits
of the Spirit-“Love, joy, peace, long-suffering,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
meekness, temperance, self-control”-
under all circumstances and vicissitudes.
