Overview

The Shining Entrance

The Shining Gateway is an excellent guide to meditation and the use of the power of positive thinking. James Allen's books have changed the lives of millions of people for the better and this can change yours.

From "The Shining Gateway" you learn that in order to accomplish a certain thing we must concentrate. It is of the utmost value to learn how to concentrate. To make a success of anything you must be able to concentrate your entire thought upon the idea you are working out....

The Shinning Gateway describes actions and motives, dealing with temptation, religion, and more. It is one of Allen's deepest and most lucid works dealing with fundamental principles of human experience.

Allen insists that it is within the power of each person to form his own character and create his own happiness.

Some Gems From the Book

1. The sage, however, never loses sight of the duration of time occupied in the process of temptation, but watches its growth and transition; and just as the scientist can measure the time occupied in the transition of sensation from the brain to the bodily extremities, or from the extremities to the brain, which, ordinarily, appears not to occupy duration, so the sage measures (though by a different method) the passage from pure perception to inflamed desire in a sudden experience of temptation.

2. There are actions which are bad-in-themselves, and there are actions which are good-in-themselves, and good intentions cannot make the former good- selfish intentions cannot make the latter bad.

3. Intentions are more or less superficial, and are largely matters of impulse, while motives are more deeply seated, and are concerned with a man's fixed moral condition. A man may do an action to-day with a good intention, and in a few weeks' time do the same action with a bad intention; but in both instances the motive underlying the action will be the same.

4. They do not need to defend their actions by subtle and specious arguments, not to enter into interminable metaphysical speculations concerning motives; but are content to act and to leave their actions to bear their own fruit.
