CHAPTER 6 – Achieving Your Goals

Nothing is impossible, unless you think it is.

Abundance and Prosperity

Those who seek prosperity for themselves alone are in the end bound to become poor, or to suffer from mental inharmony; but those who consider the whole world as their home, and who really care and work for group or world prosperity…find the individual prosperity that is legitimately theirs. This is a sure and secret law.

Unselfishness is the governing principle in the law of prosperity.

******

I own nothing, yet I know that if I were hungry there would be thousands in the world who would feed me, because I have given to thousand. That same law will work for whoever thinks not of himself as the one who is going to starve, but of the other person in need.

******

Every day, do some good to help others, even if it is only a pittance. If you want to love God you must love people. They are His children. You can be helpful materially by giving to the needy; and mentally by giving comfort to the sorrowful, courage to the fearful, divine friendship and moral support to the weak. You also sow seeds of goodness when you interest others in God, and cultivate in them greater love for God, deeper faith in Him. When you leave this world, material riches will be left behind; but every good that you have done will go with you. Wealthy people who live in miserliness, and selfish people who never help others, do not attract wealth in their next life. But those who give and share, whether they have much or little, will attract prosperity. That is the law of God.
