Liberty

Friday, February 19th, 2010

A Poem by James Allen, from the book
‘Poems of Peace’

The unwise say, ” Our sufferings are unjust,
Our pains and woes rise from the scattered dust
Of sinful ancestors; we are not free;
Our fathers robbed us of our liberty
By what they did; and we are weak and frail
Because they erred; they fell, and we must fail.

“Our drunkenness comes from their love of wine;
Our lusts their revels made; and we divine
Our manifold diseases by the ways
In which they walked; and as they trod the maze
Made by their feet, so we must likewise tread,
For we are bound and driven by the dead.”

Thy sins are thine, O man! and from thy deeds
Thy life, with all its weal and woe, proceeds;
By self, and not by others, thou art bound;
In thine own will and heart the root is found
Of all thy lack of peace; open thou thine eyes,
Leave the dead past, and look within; be wise.

Make pure thy heart, and thou wilt make thy life
Rich, sweet, and beautiful, unmarred by strife;
Guard well thy mind, and, noble, strong, and free,
Nothing shall harm, disturb or conquer thee;
For all thy foes are in thy heart and mind;
There also thy salvation thou wilt find.

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.

In his own heart he fosters dark desires,
Or strives for good, or loftily aspires;
In his own life he reaps what he has sown,
Or pain or peace, he garners in his own.
Thou man, that bowest to heredity,
Know this—the Law of life is Liberty,

By Thought we rise; by Thought we fall; by Thought
We stand or go: all destiny is wrought
By its swift potency; and he who stands
Master of Thought, and his desires commands,
Willing and weaving thoughts of Love and Might,
Shapes his high end in Truth’s unerring Light.

Including the Lyrical Dramatic Poem Eolaus

What ever is can only be accepted from a place of peace and tranquillity. Whether we are seeking peace in our lives or peace in the world the journey and the destination are the same, there can be no peace without until there is peace within.
Ghandi famously said “You must be the change you want to see in the world”, and in that phrase, he know that whatever you seek in the world, first be it. If you seek peace be at peace, if you seek harmony, be in harmony.
In these poems James Allen raises the desire in the heart for peace in our lives and through inner peace to promote outer peace. Be the peace you seek in the world and the world will return peace to you ten fold.

The ancient writing “As within – so without” was found on a emerald tablet from 3000BC. Emerald was valued even more highly in those days than it is today, so why then would such a simple phrase be inscribed on such a highly valuable precious stone? The answer is very simple, it is the simplest and yet most profound statement of truth, that governs every aspect of life. This simple truth leads us to happiness or sorrow, prosperity or lack. When we learn to govern the content of the heart, then the world around follows, it is an inescapable law. What ever the desire, the solution must come from within.
In this book James Allen leads us through the steps and thoughts necessary to ensure that the destination we seek is the one we arrive at.

This book is not going to change your life, it can’t, but it will tell you how you can change your own life.

Mastering the Laws of Happiness, Inner Power and Prosperity

One of the biggest problems in life consists in learning how to live. After all we do not come with an owners manual or much in the way of professional training. If we learn to master the laws that govern life and prosperity, then life is easy and joyous, but if we never find the way, then life is hard and a perpetual struggle. It is like the problem of addition or subtraction for a child. When they master the techniques, all difficulty disappears, and the problem has vanished. All the problems of life, whether they be social, political, or religious, are only problems because of ignorance and wrong-living. As they are solved in the heart of each individual, they will be solved in the mass of humanity. As a race, we are at present is in the painful stage of “learning”. We are confronted with the difficulties of our own ignorance. But as we learn to live rightly, learn to direct our efforts and use our functions and faculties by the light of wisdom, the sum of life will be correctly done, and its mastery will put an end to all the “problems of evil.” To the wise, all such problems have ceased. Now it is your turn to mast the laws that govern the results we get and release your inner power and become King of your mind, body and circumstance.

Illuminating The Path to Prosperity

When you enter a dark room, even one you know well, you are suddenly unsure of your movements, you cannot see objects around you or properly locate them, and you are liable to hurt yourself by coming into sudden contact with them. However, switch on the light and immediately all confusion disappears, every object can be seen, and the danger of being hurt vanishes. For the majority of people, life is like a dark room, and their frequent hurts—their disappointments, perplexities, sorrows and pains—are caused by sudden contact with principles which they do not see, and are therefore not prepared to deal with. But when the light of wisdom is introduced into the darkened understanding, confusion vanishes, difficulties are dissolved, all things are seen in their true place and proportion, and henceforth you walk open-eyed and unhurt, in the clear light of wise comprehension.
