I just discovered this author today. Just bought his books through Amazon and I am beyond ecstatic to read them. Look him up.. his writings are poignant and filled with universal wisdom. I’m blown away. This guy’s work came out in the 50s-60s.. way before Eckhart Tolle and any other well-known spiritual authors of our time.. sadly he’s underrated.

Here’s some snippets from his book, The Magic is in Your Mind:

"We exist in order that we may become something more than we are, not through favorable circumstance or auspicious occurrence, but through an inner search for increased awareness. To be, to become, these are the commandments of evolving life, which is going somewhere, aspires to some unscaled heights, and the awakened soul answers the call, seeks, grows, expands. To do less is to sink into the reactive prison of the ego, with all its pain, suffering, limitation, decay, and death. The man who lives through reaction to the world about him is the victim of every change in his environment, now happy, now sad, now victorious, now defeated, affected but never affecting. He may live years in this manner, rapt with sensory perception and the ups and downs of his surface self, but one day pain so outweighs pleasure that he suddenly perceives his ego is illusory, a product of outside circumstances only. Then he either sinks into complete animal lethargy or, turning away from the senses, seeks inner awareness and self-mastery. Then he is on the road to really living, truly becoming; then he begins to uncover his real potential; then he discovers the miracle of his own consciousness, the magic in his mind.

Mastery over life is not attained by dominion over material things, but by mental perception of their true case and nature."

"Only one who knows his slavery can aspire to be free, just as true freedom is possible only to one who has ex­perienced chains. Our hates, loves, fears, envies, aspirations, deceits are for the most part products of circumstance, of false and limiting codes and mores—more often innate terrors of mountains that are molehills; and the solution to all of them is to stand fore-square before them, daring them to do their utmost, exposing them for what they are, thus fore­swearing allegiance to the cupidity of the deluding and blind­ing ego which forever keeps us thinking we are greater than others and less than we truly are."

Pure genius. Has anyone read any of his books?

Glad you guys love it! I had to share it… it would be selfish not to because there is so much brilliance in his writings. His work should be reproduced somehow.. some of his books are collector’s items now. Look him up in Amazon :)

Yea I doubt that they’ve created new copies. The ones that I’ve found are on Amazon.. some new and used.. from when they produced it decades ago. He has a couple of books that are priced at $50-$70.. collector’s items. And I don’t think Barnes and Noble would have it.. but there are e-books or PDF versions.

One of my favorite books. I read back in 2012…life changing and I agree one of the fathers of the law of attraction. I often wonder if this is the book Rhonda Byrne inspired the Secret after. Thoughts?
