This booklet offers a valuable alternative to the usual volume on techniques of better living. Such a work typically devotes a chapter, or more, to the exposition of a single thought. Many readers, consequently, end up feeling vaguely perplexed. The reasoning followed was not at every stage that which they themselves would have followed. The examples given were not always relevant to life as they themselves lived it.
In the present booklet, the reader is given the opportunity to supply his own explanations and corroborate them by his own experience. Central concepts, each of which might have been made a chapter in a book, are presented succinctly, and simply enough to be self- evident.
The rhythm of these sayings is designed to penetrate beneath the undergrowth of mental restlessness, and to sink roots deep in the subconscious. The sayings have, therefore, the potential to influence the reader’s entire outlook on life.
A seed thought is offered for every day of the month. Begin a day at the appropriate date. Repeat the saying several times: first out loud, then softly, then in awhisper, and then only mentally. With each repetition, allow the words to become absorbed ever more deeply into your subconscious. Thus, gradually, you will acquire as complete an understanding as one might gain from a year’s course in the subject. At this point, indeed, the truths set forth here will have become your own.
Keep the book open at the pertinent page throughout the day. Refer to it occasionally during moments of leisure. Relate the saying as often as possible to real situations in your life. Then at night, before you go to bed, repeat the thought several times more. While falling asleep, carry the words into your subconscious, absorbing their positive influence into your whole being. Let it become thereby an integral part of your normal consciousness.
