that inner being, and bars off for a time every

thought, every movement of the mind, every im-

pulse to action, or whatever in the faintest degree

may stand between him and That; and so there

comes to him a sense of absolute repose, a conscious-

ness of immense and universal power, such as com-

pletely transforms the world for him. All life is

changed; he becomes master of his fate; he perceives

that all things are hurrying to perform his will; and

whatever in that region of inner Life he may con-

descend to desire, that already is shaping itself to

utterance and expression in the outer world around

him. 'The winds are his messengers over all the

world, and flames of fire are his servants; . . .

and the clouds float over the half-concealed,

dappled, and shaded Earth — to fulfil his will, to

fulfil his eternal joy.'

"For the ceaseless endeavor to realize this iden-

tity (this harmony) with the great Self, there is no

substitute. No teaching, no theorizing, no philos-

ophizing, no rules of conduct or life will take the

place of actual experience. This is the Divine

yoga or union, from which all life, all creation, pro-

ceeds."*

It has been the purpose of this book to lead the

student through those suggestions and rules which

may start the personal and "atmospheric" growth

to the deeper search that is an endeavor to ally self

with the "Universal Forces," to use the language of

"Power For Success," with the Universal Life-Con-

sciousness, to express the same thing here, which

means well, in body, purse and mind to every

human being and will surely swing into the cur-

rents of your life the great values of the Four-Fold

Psychic Power.

which seems well nigh inexhaustible.
