This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 64 pages of information about Mastery of Self for Wealth Power Success.

I ask you to take the following lines as a symbol of the world’s wonderful sense of appropriation that is everywhere evident.

The sea, the pine, the stars, the forest deep,
Bequeath to me at will their subtle wealth. 
Or still days brood, or rough winds round me sweep,
Mine is the buoyant earth-man’s vibrant health: 
All things for love of me their vigils keep—­
I am the soul of health, of wealth.

Run, sea, in my heart! 
Pine, sing in my heart! 
Stars, glow in my heart! 
For ye are mine, and my soul,
Like ye, is a part
Of the Marvelous Whole.

There’s no thing dear to me is not my wealth,
And none that sees me I would distant keep;
For swift possession is my earth-man’s health,
Or still days brood, or rough winds round me sweep: 
All things for love of me their vigils keep—­
I am the soul of health, of wealth.

You are invited, now, to seize and use the spirit of this attitude of appropriation for your own welfare and power.

COURAGE ABROAD.

And I hold that our life is growing better for the reason that I discover, in all this new adjustment to truth, this expectation and assumption that Good will not withhold itself, and because of these things, a new era of courage sweeping the heart of humanity from sea to sea.  There is abroad a Universal Breath, manifest of Life.  This breath consists of two general activities, that of Denial and that of Affirmation.  Courage is a denial of fear and of the reality of fear’s cause.  But denial is only the beginning; the really vital thing is confidence in self and in the huge friendly Universe in which we live.  Kindly remember this.  You are not making progress merely because you turn your back on the Night.  Progress means that you also turn face to the Sun and walk buoyantly into the Day.  Courage is affirmation: 

    I am the spirit of the soul
    Harmonic with the Perfect Whole.

Why, the attitude of healthy denial is everywhere apparent.  Permit me to run over some of the things that are coming more and more to be refused acceptance.  You will understand that the items are illustrations only.  We are denying:  The divine right of kings; the littleness and unholiness of fundamental human nature; a God who is a kind of huge carpenter; a Deity who needs to be appeased; a Providence which punishes; the idea that some people are created for toil and service and others for ease and to be served; the notion that we must eschew all drugs or depend only on drugs; the thought which makes disease an entity; the fancy that the illness of some is a divine will; the feeling that wealth should not be craved, or that it exists for a favored few; the creed that “evil” is a necessary existence; the faith that heaven is reserved for the “elect” who “believe” a number of things; the horror of an eternal hell; the heresy that religion, the spiritual, need have anything to do with creeds, rites or ceremonies; the feeling that success is only for the favored ones of earth; and so on, and so on.
