Men who neglect Christ and try to win heaven through moralities are like sailors at sea in a storm, who pull some at the bowsprit and some at the mainmast, but never touch the helm. You will never head for a safe harbor until you take your stand at the wheel.

Super normal Powers by Thought-discipline. 

A powerful occultist hypnotizes the whole audience collectively through his power of concentration and will and performs the rope-trick. He throws a red rope in the air, gives suggestion to the onlookers that he will climb in the air through this rope and disappears from the platform in the twinkling of an eye. But nothing is recorded when a photograph is taken.

Understand and realize the powers of thought. Unfold the hidden powers or occult faculties. Close the eyes. Concentrate. Explore the higher regions of the mind.

You can see distant objects, hear distant voices, send messages to distant places, heal persons who are at a distance and move about to a distant place in the twinkling of an eye.

~ Sri Swami Sivananda, Thought Power

Dr. Daniel Starch asked 150 outstanding business leaders to list the traits they believed were responsible for their remarkable success. They put ability to think near the top. But hold on: everybody thinks—men, women, children, geniuses, the man in the street—followers, as well as leaders. Thinking is to a brain as breathing is to a lung. Neither is ever inactive, not even in sleep. You don’t teach a brain to think; it already does it, naturally.

Of course we don’t always think (or breathe) as well as we might.

The Art of Adventure

A man practices the art of adventure when he heroically faces up to life . . . When he says, like Frank Crane: “My soul is a Columbus; and not watery wastes, nor glooming mysteries . . . shall send me back, nor make me cry ‘Enough!’”

When he has the daring to open doors to new experiences and to step boldly forth to explore strange horizons.

When he is unafraid of new ideas, new theories and new philosophies.

When he has the curiosity to experiment . . .  to test and try new ways of living and thinking.

When he refuses to seek safe places and easy tasks and has, instead, the courage to wrestle with the toughest problems and difficulties.

When he valiantly accepts the challenge of mountain-top tasks and glories in a job well done.

When he concludes that a rut is only another name for a grave and that the only way to stay out of ruts is by living adventurously and staying vitally alive every day of his life.

Thousands of men and women carry inferiority complexes with them all through life, because some well-meaning, but ignorant person destroyed their confidence through “opinions” and ridicule.

The evident lessons of our study are two—first, human failure; second, Divine progress. Look where you will in human history, you find failure. The Fall and the Flood, Corruption and the Cross. Every time humanity is put upon a new footing it fails. Has God failed? Not once; everything has been preparatory and progressive. Let us retrace our steps. The Cross and all that it means was prepared for throughout Judaic history. This one nation of Israel learned, through battle and smoke, murmuring and forgiveness, captivity and deliverance, the great truth that there is but one God

Ask Questions to Win Cooperation

This is a positive book. We are interested in what people should do to be better leaders of others—and of themselves. The wrong things we shall mention seldom. It’s better to keep our minds on the best ways. From time to time, however, it is wise to give passing mention to possible pitfalls. In asking questions, for instance:

Don’t pry into personal affairs.

Don’t ask questions unless you are pretty certain the person addressed can answer them.

Don’t ask questions that seem to cross-exam.

Don’t ask questions to show off yourself—ask those that help the other fellow show off.

~ Donald A. Laird , The Technique of Handling People (1943)

Seldom is the head right when the heart is amiss. A rotten heart will be ever and anon sending up evil thoughts into the mind, as marshy and fenny grounds do foggy mists into the air, that both darken and corrupt it. As a man’s taste, when some malignant humor affects the organ, savoreth nothing aright, but deems sweet things bitter and sour things pleasant, so, where any domineering lust has made itself master of the heart, it will so blind and corrupt the judgement that it shall not be able to discern good from evil, or truth from falsehood.

~ William Curtis Stiles, Excuse Me (1898)

A faithful Tao cultivator does not use force.

A good warrior does not lose his temper.

A great conqueror does not challenge others.

A good leader is humble.

This is called the virtue of peace with no contention.

This is also regarded as competence to make good use of the effort of people.

Such is regarded as achieving harmony with nature.

Such is the perfect Oneness of true nature.

~ Lau Tzu, Tao Te Ching
