Editor’s prefaceJames Allen may truly be called the Prophet of Meditation. In an age of strife, hurry, religious controversy, heated arguments, ritual and ceremony, he came with his message of Meditation, calling men away from the din and strife of tongues into the peaceful paths of stillness within their own souls, where the ight that lighteth every man that cometh into the world ever burns steadily and surely for all who will turn their weary eyes from the strife
to the !uiet
Many of the Meditations were written as he came down from the "airn in the early morning, where he spent those precious hours alone with #od while the world slept. $thers are gleaned from his many writings, published and
, and are arranged for daily readings at his re!uest, and, we believe, under his spiritual guidance. %he boo& must ever be a stronghold of 'piritual %ruth and blessing to all who read it, and especially to those who use it for daily meditation. Its great power lies in that it is the very heart of a good man
who lived every word he wrote!
