From the author:
The power of thought
A person is literally what he thinks, his character is the sum of all his thoughts. Just as the plant arises from the seed and cannot be without it, so all actions of a person arise from the hidden seeds of his thoughts and could not have been without them. This applies both to those actions that are called "spontaneous" and "unintentional" and to those that are intentionally performed.
Action is the flower of thought, and joy and sorrow are its fruits. Hence a person reaps the sweet and bitter fruits of his own agriculture. The thought in consciousness has shaped us. What we are by thought has been worked and built. When a person has bad thoughts in his consciousness, pain comes upon him, like the wheel behind the ox. If one has pure thoughts, joy follows him like his own shadow - certainly.
The laws of cause and effect
Man is a growth according to the law of nature, he is not an artificial creature, and the law of cause and effect is just as absolute and inevitable in the hidden sphere of thoughts as it is in the world of visible and material things. A noble and godlike character is not a matter of favor or chance, but the natural result of ongoing efforts to think properly, the result of a long-cultivated alliance with godlike thoughts. An unworthy and coarse character is the result of constant harboring of low thoughts by the same process.
Man creates or forfeits himself. In the forge of thought he makes the weapons with which he destroys himself. He also makes the tools with which he builds heavenly abodes of joy, strength and peace for himself. If he chooses the right thoughts and employs them truthfully, then man ascends to divine perfection. Through abuse and wrong use of thoughts, he sinks below the level of the animal. Between these two extremes lie all degrees of character, and man is their creator and master.
Man has the key to every situation
Of all the wonderful truths about the soul that have been renewed and brought to light in these times, none is more joyful or fruitful in terms of divine promise and trust than these: that man is master of thought, the shaper of character, and the creator and designer the circumstances, the environment and the fate.
As a being of strength, intelligence and love as well as the master of one's own thoughts, the human being holds the key for every situation in his hands and contains that changing and renewing means through which he can make himself what he wants to be. Man is always Lord, even in his weaker and more depraved state. In his weakness and humiliation, however, he is the foolish gentleman who runs his "household" badly. When he begins to ponder his condition and diligently search for the law on which his condition is based, he becomes a wise Lord who guides his energies with wisdom and turns his thoughts to fruitful subjects.
On the way to insight
Such a man is a self-conscious master, and man can only become such a man if he discovers the laws of thought in himself. Such a discovery is through and through a matter of action, self-analysis, and experience. Gold and diamonds can only be obtained through a great deal of searching and digging, and man can find every truth that is connected to his being if he digs himself deep into the mine of his soul. That he is the creator of his character, the shaper of his life and the builder of his fate, he can infallibly prove by patiently observing, controlling and changing his thoughts, their influence on himself, on others and on his life and circumstances Practice and investigation.
Furthermore, through patient practice and investigation, he should combine cause and effect and use all his experiences, even the most trivial, everyday occurrences as a means to acquire that knowledge of himself that includes understanding, wisdom and strength. In this regard, the law that "he who seeks finds and it is opened to him who knocks" applies as absolutely in no other respect, for only through patience, practice and persistent pressing can a person enter the temple step on wisdom.
