Wise men know the power of the mind to bring to pass that which you believe. The late George Russell, famous Irish editor and poet says, “We become what we habitually contemplate.” That is a very subtle truth. The picture which you constantly form in your mind of yourself, your steady contemplation of yourself, is what you will become. Marcus Aurelius said “A man’s life is what his thoughts make of it.” Emerson declared, “We are what we think about all day long.”
There is an eternal law through the operation of which we reap that which we sow. When you select the rule of conduct by which you guide yourself in your transactions with others, you will be fair and just, very likely, if you know that you are setting into motion, by that selection, a power that will run its course for weal or woe in the lives of others, returning, finally, to help or to hinder you, according to its nature.
