Take your present into your own hand.Consciously shape out of it your future. Direct your forces along lines of study and endeavour that have the strongest attraction for you. Suchattraction is the indication of need. It is the hand pointing out yourLife-purpose. What your heart desires earnestly and clamours forincessantly is
attracted 
to you out of the _invisible supply, i.e._, the means,the environments, the right sort of persons, books and thought-forces aredrawn to you and then you are expected to work out your desire. This is inperfect accord with the great
Law of Attraction
. Some call it God: since itanswers all sincere prayers. Prayer, remember, is the sincere desire of theheart. I take it that you hunger for Truth and Spiritual Growth--else you andI would not be here. The instructions given you hereunder are meant to giveyou a strong body and a strong will. They will also tend to yourSoul-Unfoldment. Talk not of them. Keep your mouth closed. Be serious,earnest and thoughtful. Then work at them confidently and with

perseverance. Do not be daunted by apparent failures. Failure is thestepping-stone to Success. He fails who gives up a thing in final despair.Go on, I say. You will improve from the very first day, and in a short timeyou will be another man. All the leaders of humanity, past or present, havestudied and investigated with tireless zeal along the special lines and, inSpiritual culture, you must do the same. But you must have health, a strongwill and a steady brain, and I will enable you to have these positively. Keepthese instructions strictly privately. Master them by constant meditationupon same.LESSON I.CONCENTRATION.Concentration signifies the state of being at a centre (
con
and _centrum_).Applied to thought, it is the act of bringing the mind to a single point. Eachhuman being must practise concentration
subjectively
and
objectively
. Inother words, each human being aims with more or less precision atconcentration on a point
within
and a point
without 
his own world.Concentration "without" is illustrated when you devote all your attentionupon Nature, such as learning a trade, a profession, a science, an art orsome form of business. This is _Evolution_, outgoing or positive mentalenergy. I shall call this
Objective Concentration
. Concentration "within"implies the withdrawing of attention from the external world and theplacing of mind on "God," "Spirit," "Heaven," "Religion," "Peace,""Nirvana," "Eternity," etc. This is _Involution_, _i.e._, incoming ornegative energy.When
Objective Concentration
alone is practised, you develop into ahard-headed, practical man of the world or a successful man of business.You are keen and shrewd. The world is a very matter-of-fact thing to you.You cannot think of anything else beyond money-making and pleasuresand worldly affairs. You are a "worldling of the world," very clever, rich,and a master along your own lines. But spiritually you are an imbecile,worse than a baby. This is the _Objective Mind_--the "deepest immersed inmatter, literally made of the dust." "It is the brain of worldly wisdom,
