Mildred Mann - How to Find Your Real Self

There's certainly nothing as necessary in the world today than a practical philosophy of life. By a practical philosophy, I don't mean stunning ideals and wonderful dreams in that we tend to look for refuge from a terrifying world.

I mean the kind of philosophy that is liveable, useable, expendable.

I mean the sort of philosophy that way outdistances the abstract concepts of the worlds's great thinkers.

I mean the type of philosophy that Jesus demonstrated and taught- a Pragmatic Mysticism. Several folks have asked, "Simply what is that?" Pragmatism may be a term that came into favor about the turn of the century from William James. In different words, it is what we have a tendency to call the metaphysical concept, or what I personally like to call Pragmatic Mysticism. It is not the kind of belief that makes you withdraw from the planet, or live in an exceedingly cave, or mortify the flesh, or deny yourself something that creates for gracious living. It's a pragmatic, each-day, usable UNION WITH GOD.

CHAPTER I YOU ARE A SPECIAL ENTERPRISE OF GOD
 There is certainly nothing more necessary in the world today than a practical philosophy of life. By a practical philosophy, I do not mean beautiful ideals and wonderful dreams in whichwe seek refuge from a terrifying world. I mean the kind of philosophy which is livable,useable, and expendable. I mean the kind of philosophy that far outdistances the abstractideas of the world’s great thinkers. I mean the kind of philosophy that Jesus demonstratedand taught- a Pragmatic Mysticism.Many people have asked, “Just what is that?” Pragmatism is a term that came into favorabout the turn of the century from William James. He was, and still is, the greatest of allAmerican psychologists, and we might add the title of philosopher to him also. He said thatPragmatism in terms of self is that which is usable, that which is expendable. In other words,Pragmatism is anything that has a cash value not only in the sense of buying an article, butin the real sense of your own inner resources, explored, developed and used. Is it useable?Will it help you? Can you work it? Pragmatism is certainly very workable. In other words, it iswhat we call the metaphysical concept, or what I personally prefer to call PragmaticMysticism. It is not the kind of belief that makes you withdraw from the world, or live in acave, or mortify the flesh, or deny yourself anything that makes for gracious living. It is apragmatic, every-day, usable UNION WITH GOD. That is what it is in simple terms.A number of years ago, before I had encountered Metaphysics, I was in the business world. Ihad a photographic feature syndicate, which supplied newspapers and magazines withpicture feature stories of the type we find in “Life,” “Look,” etc. We would take a series of pictures that told a story. Sometimes they were sent to us by photographers throughout theworld, and sometimes we made them with our own staff of photographers. This one, towhich I now refer, was our own brain-child. It was called “What is a human being made of?”We decided to make the particular human being in question a pretty girl, and we thenproceeded to analyze her. We discovered that she consisted of such things as salt, calcium,silica, sulphur, potassium and sundry other elements. The total cost of the various elementswhich make up the human body was, at pre inflation figures, $2.94. That is what we eachare worth as far as our physical bodies are concerned. It was a little more if you had gold inyour teeth, and a little less if you had dentures, which seems reasonable. But that is the cashvalue of a human being.In those days I was very much of an atheist, and this value rather fitted in with my own ideaof what humanity was really worth - including me. Then shortly after that I discoveredMetaphysics. I was, as many of us have been, dragged to a lecture. During one of the firstlectures I attended a statement was made that was a challenge to me. The man who spokewas, in my mind, the greatest of all Metaphysical teachers,- Emmet Fox. He had the mostbrilliant mind I had ever met. You couldn’t ignore this man. You couldn’t laugh him off. Hemade sense. He ended this particular talk by saying, “Do you know who you are? Do youreally know who you are? YOU are a special enterprise on the part of God.” That hit me.There certainly was a wide gap between the $2.94 cash value of a human body and “aspecial enterprise on the part of God.”
