A THOUSAND JOYS. A THOUSAND ILLS.
Originally published in 1902, James Allen’s As a Man Thinketh proposed we are the masters of our thoughts. Yet, most of us continue to hold on to those that cause us suffering. Why? A question each of us must answer in our own time.
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.
— JAMES ALLEN
