IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN YOU
<ne da) not #ong ago6 whi#e standing on the orner o7 a 'us) street in !hi#ade#4hia6 ta#"ing to
a 7riend6 a#ong a1e an o#d 1an. He was a dere4it o#d 1an with swo##en6 tear7u# e)es6 and
his unshaven 7ae was drawn and withered. His #i4s were '#ue with un#ean sores. His toes
were 4ushing through his worn-out shoes. His #othes were torn to rags. He had seen 'etter

With a #oo" o7 sadness6 and with a dirt) '#oated hand thrust 7orward6 he 4#eaded 7or a 7ew

In eC4#oring the undisovered regions inside the 1ind6 1an disovers he has interest. His
interest reates a desire. There are two "inds o7 desire. <ne is 4h)sia#. <ne is 1enta#.
5u'sistene and 4ro4agation satis7) the 4h)sia# desire. Thoughts and ideas satis7) the
1enta# desire.

There are two "inds o7 thoughts. !ositive thoughts whih are reative. Negative thoughts
whih are destrutive. I o7ten o14are 4ositive thoughts to #ight6 and negative thoughts to
dar"ness. &ar"ness is nothing. It is the a'sene o7 #ight. Turn on the #ight6 and there is no
dar"ness.

There7ore6 the 7irst wa) to deve#o4 a'i#it) is A44#iation.

The seond wa) to deve#o4 a'i#it) is to #a) down a 9ha##enge.

In ana#)Aing those individua#s who have 1ade a 4heno1ena# suess6 we 7ind that it was not

the seret 'ehind suh 4heno1ena# suess? These individua#s had one Gua#it) in o11on--
the daring a'i#it) to start so1ething. The) ha##enged their own a'i#it). The) dared to thin" 7or

!asteur6 who gave 1ore "now#edge 7or the 4reservation o7 hea#th than an) other 1an6 was
not a 4h)siian. Whitne)6 the 1an who invented the otton gin6 was a shoo# teaher in

Men who '#aAe new trai#s6 harter new routes6 4ioneer new 1ethods6 1a"e new disoveries

The 7ourth wa) to deve#o4 a'i#it) is -reedo1.

rid o7 eCess 'aggage6 and 4er1its the a'i#it) to 7untion with 7reedo1.

The 7i7th wa) to deve#o4 a'i#it) is %ision.

Most 4eo4#e 'e#ieve on#) in the things the) see. A44earane is ever)thing. To attri'ute 4ower
to a44earane is su4erstitious. A44earane is on#) a 1ani7estation and has no 4ower in itse#7.
A## 4ower is invisi'#e. Mind is invisi'#e. Wind is invisi'#e. 5ound is invisi'#e. 8i7e is invisi'#e.
54irit is invisi'#e. (#etriit) is invisi'#e. !ut two wires side ') side6 harge one with a hundred

that e#etriit) eCists touh a #ive wire.

%ision is so1ething seen otherwise than ') ordinar) sight. It is a visua# i1age o7 a 4#an in
ation. It is 4ee4ing through the 7ene o7 a44earane. To 'e#ieve in things )ou an see is
sight. To 'e#ieve in things )ou annot see is vision. When vision 7ai#s6 1en 4erish. %ision is the
a1era o7 the i1agination6 and su44#ies the 7i#1 to register the i1age.

1an with a vision harnessed the 4ower o7 ount#ess horses and onverted it into a use7u#

%ision is one o7 the 1ost i14ortant 7au#ties. It deve#o4s 7oresight and turns hindsight into
4ro7it. (ver) 1an has a 4ortion. Use it.

The siCth wa) to deve#o4 the a'i#it) is 9oordination.

Ideas have a "inshi4 and 7or1 eCe##ent 4artnershi4s to 4rodue har1on). When this "inshi4
is reogniAed it i##u1inates and invigorates the a'i#it). When ideas on7#it6 distration
on7uses and disru4ts the a'i#it). It is una'#e to 7untion with 7u## 7ore to reah its goa#6 or to
en@o) a o14#ete 7ruition.

)our a'i#it) wi## 7eed )ou.

The seventh wa) to deve#o4 a'i#it) is 9onvition.

(ver) da) !arson Hones visited his hurh to 4reah. 5o1eone as"ed hi1 wh) he 4reahed

9onvition o1es 7ro1 two 8atin words6 Don6D and Dvinere6D whih 1eans Dto onGuer.D In
order to onGuer dou't a'out )our a'i#it) to 4er7or16 either ') argu1ent or 'e#ie76 it is
i14erative that the 4ro4osition 'e thought through to a on#usion. Ha#7-'a"ed on#usions
are the resu#t o7 7au#t) reasoning. Thin"ing through an on#) reah one on#usion--the
4ro4osition is either true or 7a#se. I7 it is true6 1a"e a deision with onvition6 and at u4on it
with deter1ination. A state o7 'eing onvined is 4rediated u4on the integrit) o7 the hu1an
1ind.

When 7ed with 7ats the 1ind does not err and the deision reahed ins4ires onvition.

To rea#iAe the 7u## i14etus o7 a'i#it) and to derive the 7u## 'ene7it 7ro1 it6 a thorough and who#e-

I never onentrate 7or a #ong 4eriod o7 ti1e on one su'@et. Thirt) or 7ort) 1inutes is

The seond e#e1ent )ou ried 7or u4on )our arriva# in the wor#d was 7ood. The 'od) 1ust
have 7ood in order 7or the '#ood to have nutrition.

What is 7ood? -ood is the di77erent things we eat. It is a 4rodut o7 the earth6 air6 water and

7oods. The) are essentia# 7or 4ro4er nutrition.

How does this #i7e-giving 7ore get into the 'od)? Through the '#ood strea1. This is
ao14#ished ') a 1anu7aturing and distri'uting 4roess arried on ') the interna# organs.
-ood is ta"en into the 1outh6 hewed6 swa##owed6 then digested ') the sto1ah and 1ade
read) 7or the #itt#e intestines. The s1a## intestines6 through the 4roess o7 os1osis6 4i" out
the 4arti#es o7 7ood whih ontain vita1ins. These 4arti#es are turned over to the vita#
organs6 in#uding the #iver6 heart6 #ungs6 "idne)s and others= and eah one o7 these wor"ing in
har1on) with the others onverts these 4arti#es into '#ood6 and distri'utes this '#ood over
the 'od) to su44#) the e##s with nutrition. Thus )ou have #i7e6 heat and energ).

There is on#) one onsious at on )our 4art in the who#e 4roess o7 onverting 7ood into
'#ood. That at is 1astiation6 whih is to hew6 rush and grind the 7ood with the teeth unti# it

To 4rove the great va#ue o7 1astiation6 4ut a 4iee o7 sta#e un'uttered 'read into )our 1outh
and hew it #ong enough to rush it to a rea1) #iGuid. The indeter1inate taste at the

As an insurane 'ro"er6 I had an oasion to a44roah a 1an to 'u) #i7e insurane. He stated
that he was uninsura'#e owing to high '#ood 4ressure. He was a strong6 vigorous t)4e o7

Natura# #aws are 1anBs 'est teaher6 and the o'- serving o7 these #aws revea#s the truth. In
onnetion with the i14ortane o7 1astiation I want to a## )our attention to the ow. &id it
ever our to )ou that a ow 1ust eat su77iient 7ood to 1aintain her own #arge 'od)6 and at
the sa1e ti1e give severa# ga##ons o7 1i#" eah da)6 7urnishing us with a## our va#ua'#e dair)
4roduts? The ow has a seret. 5he hews her ud. The her'aeous 7ood is swa##owed un-
hewed6 and 4asses into the ru1en6 whene it is regurgitated in 1asses. Then it is thorough#)
1astiated and 1iCed with sa#iva whi#e the ani1a# is at rest. Thus6 without 1astiation6 there
wou#d 4ossi'#) 'e no 1i#"6 no 'utter or heese.

That suit whih )ou have on is a#so a 4rodut o7 thorough 1astiation. The shee4 is a#so a
ru1inant ani1a# that hews its ud. This is wh) it is 4ossi'#e to have woo# 7or woo#en #othes.
5hee4 are 1aintained to grow woo# @ust as #ong as the) graAe and hew their ud. When their
teeth wear out6 the) are so#d 7or 1utton. ThatBs the reason the 4eo4#e in (ng#and get tough
1utton ho4s. The shee4 in Austra#ia have worn their teeth out graAing and hewing their ud
whi#e 4roduing woo#. Hene the) are so#d to (ng- #and 7or 1utton.

Most 'irds and 7ow#s swa##ow their 7ood without hewing it. Nature was "ind to the16 and gave
the1 giAAards. The giAAard hews and 1astiates the 7ood 7or the 'irds and the 7ow#s. Nature
was a#so "ind to )ou. 5he gave )ou a 1outh and a set o7 teeth with whih to hew and
1astiate )our 7ood.

The va#ue o7 1astiation was de1onstrated when )ou were a 'a'). <n#) one in )our #i7e did
)ou dou'#e )our 'od) weight in one )ear. That was 'etween the ti1e that )ou were 'orn and

The third e#e1ent to 1a"e the 'od) rih is water. Three-7ourths o7 the earthBs sur7ae is water.
More than three-7ourths o7 )our 'od) is water. This revea#s another #ue> 7urnish the 'od) with

The 7ourth e#e1ent he#4ing to 1a"e the 'od) rih is sunshine. &id it ever our to )ou that a##
the 7ood )ou eat is either grown in the su11erti1e or in the tro4is? The ra)s o7 the sun are

te14erate Aone during the su11er 1onths6 'ut in the tro4is or territor) 'ordering on the

the te14erate Aone annot 4rovide. (ver)thing has a ause and ') o'servation and thought
we an 7ind it.

A## vegetation thrives in the sunshine6 and so do we. The 'od) needs it. A short sun 'ath6 not
to the 4oint o7 'urning the s"in6 ta"en two or three ti1es eah wee" in the su11erti1e6 is
ver) 'ene7iia# to the 'od). The ra)s o7 the sun are vita-ra)s6 whih heat and harge the e##s
with vita1ins. These vita1ins are #oaded with energ) and the 'od) a'sor's this energ) 7ro1

0od6 and is here to he#4 )ou get 1ore energ). Ma"e use o7 it.

The 'od) is a 4#asti6 #a)#i"e asse1'#age o7 4roto4#as1 1ade u4 o7 e##s. These e##s are
"e4t a#ive and revita#iAed and re-energiAed ') the '#ood. The 4rini4#es @ust enu1erated have
shown us how to 1a"e the 'est 4ossi'#e use o7 the 7our essentia# e#e1ents neessar) to
1a"e 4ure red '#ood. Now that we have the '#ood6 what is the neCt ste4? The heart is the
organ that 4u14s the '#ood to a## 4arts o7 the 'od). The arteries arr) the '#ood 7ro1 the
heart6 and it is returned ') wa) o7 the veins. This is natureBs wonder7u# s)ste1 o7 distri'uting
the '#ood. However6 D BTis the 1ind that 1a"es the 'od) rih6D and there is a onsious at

What is this onsious at? Again6 we ta"e a #esson 7ro1 nature. It is esti1ated ') siene
that 1ost ani1a#s #ive 7ive to seven ti1es their 1aturit) age. Aording to the A1erian
Morta#it) Ta'#es6 the average age o7 1an is /1.* )ears. This is #ess than three ti1es his
1aturit) age. I7 1an #ived 7ive to seven ti1es his 1aturit) age6 he wou#d #ive to 'e one
hundred to one hundred and 7ort) )ears o#d.

What do the ani1a#s do that 1ost 4eo4#e 7ai# to do? What is the answer? The ani1a#s 1ust
have a seret. B) o'serving the1 and using 1) 'od) as a guinea 4ig6 I ado4t and 4ratie
their seret.

That seret is 5trething.

The ani1a# 7o##ows his natura# instint. How o7ten have )ou o'served the at arhing its 'a"6
the horse swa)ing its 'a"6 the #ion eCtending its 'od)6 and the dog s4reading its 4aws?
These 'od) ations o7 ani1a#s are revea#ing so1ething. The) are setting an eCa14#e. The)
are te##ing us to streth our 'od). 5trething is the on#) 7or1 o7 eCerise that ani1a#s adhere
to strit#). There7ore6 it 1ust 'e the natura# and reasona'#e eCerise.

5trething is nothing 1ore than onsious tension. It is tensing the 1us#es o7 the 'od) ') an
at o7 thought. In 1) own eC4eriene6 I have 4ratied a## "inds o7 eCerises 'ut I have o1e
to the on#usion that strething is the 'est and 1ost natura# o7 a##. It is eas) to do. No

head to toe. In doing this6 a#so eCerise )our o11on sense.

What does strething or onsious tension do 7or the 'od)? To streth the 1us#es is to
streth the e##s. To streth the e##s is to ause the1 to eC4and and 'rea" u46 and this gives
the 4ure '#ood a hane to 7#ood and 7eed the1. This he#4s to drive out a## toCins6 aids6
4oisons or other i14urities. When the e##s are r)ing 7or '#ood the 'od) 7ee#s tired and ')
strething at interva#s )ou 7urnish the e##s with nutrition and this su'stitutes energ) 7or
tiredness. You wi## have 1ore a4ait) to do things. In 'rie76 it is giving the 'od) a '#ood 'ath.

I7 the e##s o7 the 'od) are not 7ed with '#ood6 the) dr) u4. This is ver) evident in 4eo4#e when
the) grow o#d. The e##s in their 7ae 'egin to dr) u4 7or the #u" o7 '#ood6 and as the '#ood
reedes6 it is #i"e the 1oving out o7 the tides and what we see are wrin"#es6 dried-u4 s"ins and
withered 7aes. This never ha44ens when the e##s o7 the 7ae are 4ro4er#) nourished with
'#ood through onsious tension.

5trething the 1us#es 4er1its the '#ood to 7#ood6 and to 7eed and #eanse the e##s6 and
there is no o44ortunit) 7or the vu#tures o7 i14urities to start their 4ini.

To i##ustrate the va#ue o7 strething6 dro4 a s4onge in a 4ai# o7 water. Wath the s4onge a'sor'

sa1e thing ha4 4ens. This i##ustrates how the e##s reat to '#ood when )ou streth the
1us#es.

There is no 4artiu#ar wa) to streth. (ah individua# an wor" this out to suit his own
dis4osition6 ti1e and onveniene. The 1ain thing is to do it. This is the wa) I do it. I ta"e a

The third 4rini4#e to generate enthusias1 is> 0et the right attitude. Attitude is to stud) with a

The siCth 4rini4#e to generate enthusias1 is6 0et a #ear one4tion. 9one4tion o1es 7ro1
the 8atin words DonD and Da4ere6D whih 1ean Dto seiAeD or Dta"e.D To 7or1 the 4ro4er
one4tion6 either o7 a 1ateria# or an i11ateria# 4ro4osition6 is to ta"e into oneBs 1ind a## o7 its

CHAPTER $
HOW TO MA!E USE O# THE PRESENT
In the wor#d toda) there are two de7inite trends o7 thought. <ne trend is 'ased on orthodoC
tradition6 whih ho#ds 7ast to ever)thing o7 the 4ast. The other trend is 1i#itant #i'era#is16
whih see"s to iru1vent the traditions o7 the 4ast and to esta'#ish a new regi1e.

Between orthodoC traditions and 1i#itant #i'era#is1 there is a ha44) hunting ground. This
ha44) hunting ground is the wor#d in whih we #ive. It is a 4ratia# wor#d 1ade u4 o7 a## "inds
o7 4eo4#e6 @ust #i"e )ou and 1e. No one "nows where we a1e 7ro16 and no one "nows
where we are going when we #eave here. There is one thing ertain6 we are here and it is ours
to 1a"e 7u## use o7 now.

It is )our 1ission whi#e here to 1a"e use o7 the o11on sense and reason whih 0od has
given )ou. You have the a'i#it) to ana#)Ae and 7atho1 out a## the events6 4ree4ts and

In 4re4aring a 'oo" entit#ed The 5even 0reat (vents o7 &e1ora)6 I have traed 'a" the

the 4ast three thousand )ears the "now#edge and wisdo1 eC4ressed in that event have 'een
a ontri'uting 7ator in 1anBs Guest 7or understanding. It has 'een a 'eaon #ight to guide and

This event is the Twent)-third !sa#1. These siC verses eC4ress in one hundred and eighteen

2. He restoreth 1) sou#= he #eadeth 1e in the 4aths o7 righteousness 7or his na1eBs sa"e.

A wath has the sa1e wor"s6 either running or sto44ed. It needs winding ever) now and then.
A 1an is #i"e a wath6 he needs winding. The on#) wa) to wind a 1an is to give his 1ind

eah 1ea#. It is an individua# ahieve1ent6 and 1ust 'e attained through understanding. The
'est wa) to ahieve 4eae o7 1ind is to understand thorough#) what 4eae o7 1ind is.

What is 4eae o7 1ind? It is har1on) and unit) in thin"ing. The 1ind is not stati. It is
d)na1i. It is a ontinuous 7#ow o7 onsiousness. Thoughts o7 a## "inds are onstant#)
4assing through the 1ind. When har1on) and unit) 4revai# in )our thoughts )ou have 4eae
o7 1ind.

How an )ou esta'#ish and 1aintain har1on) and unit) in thought?

The 'est wa) to do this is to e#i1inate on7#it.

The on7#it that distur's the har1on) and unit) in the 7#ow o7 thought is 4rei4itated ') a ivi#
war. The 'att#e in this ivi# war is 'etween the 7ive senses and the inte##igene. An
understanding o7 this 'att#e wi## he#4 )ou to 4ut an end to the ivi# war and win an a## ti1e
vitor) 7or 4eae o7 1ind.

The 7ive senses are inessant#) 4i"ing u4 i14ressions. These i14ressions are onve)ed to
the inte##igene. The inte##igene6 through the 4ower o7 reason6 onso#idates these
i14ressions into thoughts. 5o1e o7 these thoughts want to start a on7#it6 'ut these thoughts
have no 4ower. The @udg1ent whih is the 7ina# ar'iter o7 reason an en@o) an) o7 these
thoughts. <n the other hand it an a#so de#are anO o7 these thoughts nu## and void6 and ')
eCerising this 4ower an disar1 a## inhar1onious thoughts at their soure. This wins the
'att#e and ends the ivi# war. This at on )our 4art 1a"es the inte##igene the 'ig 'oss and
)ou the 1aster. A44#)ing this 4rini4#e )ou an 1anage and train )our 7ive senses and instead
o7 'eing a s#ave to the16 )ou an have the1 wor"ing 7or )ou. As the 1aster6 )ou an
esta'#ish and 1aintain har1on) and unit) in the 7#ow o7 thoughts. You an sit 'a" and en@o)
4eae o7 1ind.

Another thing to rea#iAe is that inte##igene is the 54irit and !ower o7 0od o4erating in and
through )ou. Nothing an har1 0od and no thought an har1 inte##igene. :e1e1'er the
inte##igene has the 4ower to 1aster an) thought whih the 7ive senses an 4i" u4.

Another aid to he#4 )ou to 'e the 1aster o7 thought is to 7orti7) )ourse#7 7ro1 within. As Marus
Aure#ius sa)s> DMan 1ust 'e arhed and 'uttressed 7ro1 within6 e#se the te14#e wavers to
dust.D The wa) to 'uttress )ourse#7 is to 4ratie and de1onstrate )our 4ower o7 reason and

In 1atters o7 1one) )ou either give interest to get do##ars6 or give do##ars to get interest. In
either ase6 it is give and ta"e. The sa1e 4rini4#e a44#ies to those who s4ea" in 4u'#i. It is
1utua#. To get interest 7ro1 an audiene6 it is neessar) to give the audiene so1ething 7or

Near#) ever)one is a##ed u4on on oasions to s4ea" a 7ew words in 4u'#i6 and to give his

Ma"ing a s4eeh is one o7 1anBs o#dest arts6 and one o7 the Gui"est and 1ost 4otent wa)s to

There are three 'odies to a s4eeh.

1. The Introdution. A short stor)6 a 'rie7 anedote or a 4ersona# eC4eriene is 1ost e77etive
to introdue a s4eeh on an) su'@et. A sentene eC4ressing an unusua# ana#og) is a#so
a44ro4riate. (ither the stor) or the eC4eriene 1ust 'e short and to the 4oint.
