The truly contented man works energetically and faithfully, and accepts all results with an untroubled spirit.

December Second.

THERE are three things with which a man should be content : With whatever happens ; with his friendships and possessions ; and with his pure thoughts. Contented with whatever happens, he will escape grief ; with his friendships and possessions, he will avoid anxiety and wretchedness ; and with his pure thoughts, he will never go back to suffer and grovel in impurities.

There are three with which a man should not be content : With his opinions; with his character; and with his spiritual condition. Not content with his opinions, he will continually increase in intelligence ; not content with his character, he will ceaselessly grow in strength and virtue ; and not content with his spiritual condition, he will, every day, enter into a larger wisdom and a fuller blessedness.

Results exactly correspond with efforts.


Second Morning

None but right acts can follow right
thoughts; none but a right life can follow
right acts; and by living a right life all
blessedness is achieved.

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.

Second Evening

Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful
jewels of wisdom. A man becomes calm in
the measure that he understands himself
as a thought-evolved being. . . .

And he as he develops a right
understanding, and sees more and more
clearly the internal relations of things by
the action of cause and effect, he ceases to
fret and fume, and worry and grieve, and
remains poised, steadfast, serene.
