We can become so absorbed in making a living that we have no time for living. To be capable and efficient in one's work is a splendid thing; but efficiency can be made a great mechanical device that robs life of far more than it returns it. A nation can become so possessed, and even obsessed, with the idea of[Pg 6] power and grandeur through efficiency and organisation, that it becomes a great machine and robs its people of the finer fruits of life that spring from a wisely subordinated and coordinated individuality. Here again it is the wise balance that determines all.

PRINTED IN GREAT BRITAIN BY ROBERT MACLEHOSE AND CO. LTD.THE UNIVERSITY PRESS, GLASGOW
FOREWORD
We are all dwellers in two kingdoms, the inner kingdom, the kingdom of the mind and spirit, and theouter kingdom, that of the body and the physical universe about us. In the former, the kingdom of theunseen, lie the silent, subtle forces that are continually determining, and with exact precision, theconditions of the latter.To strike the right balance in life is one of the supreme essentials of all successful living. We mustwork, for we must have bread. We require other things than bread. They are not only valuable,comfortable, but necessary. It is a dumb, stolid being, however, who does not realize that life consistsof more than these. They spell mere existence, not abundance, fullness of life.We can become so absorbed in making a living that we have no time
 for living 
. To be capable andefficient in one's work is a splendid thing; but efficiency
can be made
a great mechanical device thatrobs life of far more than it returns it. A nation can become so possessed, and even obsessed, with theidea of power and grandeur through efficiency and organisation, that it becomes a great machine androbs its people of the finer fruits of life that spring from a wisely subordinated and coordinatedindividuality. Here again it is the wise balance that determines all.Our prevailing thoughts and emotions determine, and with absolute accuracy, the prevailingconditions of our outward, material life, and likewise the prevailing conditions of our bodily life.Would we have any conditions different in the latter we must then make the necessary changes in theformer. The silent, subtle forces of mind and spirit, ceaselessly at work, are continually mouldingthese outward and these bodily conditions.He makes a fundamental error who thinks that these are mere sentimental things in life, vague andintangible. They are, as great numbers are now realising, the great and elemental things in life, theonly things that in the end really count. The normal man or woman can never find real and abidingsatisfaction in the mere possessions, the mere accessories of life. There is an eternal something withinthat forbids it. That is the reason why, of late years, so many of our big men of affairs, so many invarious public walks in life, likewise many women of splendid equipment and with large possessions,have been and are turning so eagerly to the very things we are considering. To be a mere huckster,many of our big men are finding, cannot bring satisfaction, even though his operations run intomillions in the year.And happy is the young man or the young woman who, while the bulk of life still lies ahead, realisesthat it is the things of the mind and the spirit—the fundamental things in life—that really count; thathere lie the forces that are to be understood and to be used in moulding the everyday conditions andaffairs of life; that the springs of life are all from within, that as is the inner so always and inevitablywill be the outer.To present certain facts that may be conducive to the realisation of this more abundant life is theauthor's purpose and plan.R.
