The Shining Gateway by James Allen

Wisdom From The Prophet of Meditation

In this work we find the Prophet of Meditation in one of his deepest and yet most lucid expositions. How wonderfully he deals with fundamental principles! In this work you will find no vague statement of generalities, for James Allen enters with tender reverence into every detail of human experience. It is as though he came back to The Shining Gate, and, standing there, he reviewed all the way up which his own feet have travelled, passing over no temptation that is common to man; knowing that the obstacles that barred his ascending pathway, or the clouds that at times obscured his vision, are the common experiences of all those who have set their faces towards the heights of Blessed Vision. As we read his words now, he seems to stand and beckon to us, saying, “Come on, my fellow Pilgrims; it is straight ahead to the Shining Gateway; I have blazed the track for you.” In sending forth this, another posthumous volume from his pen, we have no doubt but that it will help many an aspiring soul up to the heights, until at last they too stand within The shining Gateway.

Meditations for Every Day in the Year

Releasing Your Inner Truth—Day by Day

366 Daily Meditations.
To change your life you must change your unconscious thinking, so that your automatic responses to the things that occur in your day-to-day life are positive and productive. But, unconscious thoughts by their nature are not easily controlled or changed without deep shifts in core beliefs and habits.
Out habits of thought are the things that lead us on an on-going basis to vote the same way, to enjoy the same entertainment, to work in the same industry. And, if we want to change any of those things we have to make a concerted effort. If we want to change career to a new industry then there is a period of study, of adjustment, of learning and practising in order to install the new skills and habits needed.
For some the change comes naturally and without effort, for others the change is a struggle, but in both cases skill improves with focused conditioning. A specialist in any profession becomes so through continued practice and training—time spent honing their skill and techniques.
The daily practice of focusing on a single factor, reflecting on a single subject and allowing the truth within to enter through relaxed meditation brings a level of inner peace and awareness that deeply enhances life. To continue this practice for an entire year results in a life changed and enhanced beyond anything ever experienced before.
In this book 366 thoughts have been isolated to allow you to focus on a single subject and to find the inner meaning that will take your life one step forward each day. Over the course of the year your awareness will grow and your joy in the subject will deepen.
Reading these texts each day, I have found that it is profoundly rewarding to simply read the text, slowly, in a quiet place and to then lay the book aside a allow the meaning in the words to permeate my consciousness, re-reading the text as many times as it takes to allow my mind to work through the meaning entirely.
As the days progress your life will become conditioned to think in a different way and your life will shift little-by-little every day, until you find it is completely transformed.

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.

Poems of Peace

Friday, February 12th, 2010

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.


    Eolaus A lyrical dramatic poem
    Miscellaneous poems
    If men only understood
    Practice and perception
    Long I sought thee
    To-morrow and to-day
    Star of wisdom
    Would you scale the highest heaven
    To them that seek the highest good
    One thing lacking
    The lowly way
    The music of the sea
    Love’s conquest
    To my daughter Nora on her tenth birthday
    The inward purity
    I take refuge in truth
    I, truth, am thy redeemer
    The white robe
    The righteous man
    Truth triumphant
    O thou who would’st teach!
    If thou would’st right the world
    What of the night?
    The end of evil
    Man divine
    On releasing a captive bird
    Art thou in sorrow?
    When I am pure
    Are you searching?
