Allen writes: EVERY HUMAN SOUL IS IN NEED. The expression of that need varies with individuals, but there is not one soul that does not feel it in some degree. It is a spiritual and casual need which takes the form, in souls of a particular development, of a deep and inexpressible hunger which the outward things of life, however abundantly they may be possessed, can never satisfy

Las ocho columnas de la prosperidad by James Allen( Book )

33 editions published between 1911 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prosperity rests on a moral foundation. It is commonly believed to rest on an immoral foundation -- that is, on trickery, sharp practice, deception, and greed. One commonly hears even an otherwise intelligent person declare that, "no one can be successful in business without being dishonest," thus believing business prosperity (a good thing) as the result of dishonesty (a bad thing). Such a statement is superficial and thoughtless, and reveals a total lack of knowledge of moral cause and effect, as well as a very limited grasp of the facts of life--P. [1]

As you think by James Allen( Book )

7 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1904, a relatively unknown Englishman named James Allen wrote a little book called As a Man Thinketh. The book has become one of the world's greatest self-help books --?self-empowerment? is a better term -- for it not only reveals to us that the keys to success are within our own minds, it shows us how to use these keys to unlock the greatest fulfillment we can imagine. In this revised edition, author and publisher Marc Allen updates this classic, changing language that has become dated or obsolete, and honing the clarity of the message. He makes As You Think gender inclusive, showing how these principles are truly universal and apply to everyone, regardless of sex, age, race, beliefs, social class, or education. As You Think is a simple yet powerful reminder that?all we achieve and all that we fail to achieve is the direct result of our own thoughts.? We are the masters of our destinies

The twenty pieces which comprise this book, unrelated as some of them are in the letter, will be found to be harmonious in the spirit, in that they point the reader towards those heights of self-knowledge and self-conquest which, rising above the turbulance of the world, life their peaks where the Heavenly Silence reigns"--Page 4 of cover

His thoughts blossom into deeds; and his deeds bear the fruitage of character and destiny

From the author of As a Man Thinketh. Every being lives in his own mental world. His joys and sorrows are the creations of his own mind, and are dependent upon the mind for their existence. In the midst of the world, darkened with many sins and sorrows, in which the majority live, there abides another world, lighted up with shining virtues and unpolluted joy, in which the perfect ones live. This world can be found and entered, and the way to it is by self-control and moral excellence. --James Allen
