Overview

UNCONSCIOUSLY we are forming habits every moment of our lives.
Some are habits of a desirable nature; some are those of a most undesirable
nature. Some, though not so bad in themselves, are exceedingly bad in their
cumulative effects, and cause us at times much loss, much pain and anguish,
while their opposites would, on the contrary, bring as much peace and joy, as well
as a continually increasing power.
Have we it within our power to determine at all times what types of habits
shall take form in our lives? In other words, is habit-forming, character building,
a matter of mere chance, or have we it within our own control? We have, entirely
and absolutely. "I will be what I will to be," can be said and should be said by
every human soul.
After this has been bravely and determinedly said, and not only said, but
fully inwardly realized, something yet remains. Something remains to be said
regarding the great law underlying habit-forming, character building; for there is
a simple, natural, and thoroughly scientific method that all should know.
A method whereby old, undesirable, earth-binding habits can be broken,
and new, desirable, heaven lifting habits can be acquired, a method whereby life
in part or in its totality can be changed, provided one is sufficiently in earnest to
know and, knowing it, to apply the law.
Thought is the force underlying all. And what do we mean by this? Simply
this: Your every act - every conscious act - is preceded by a thought. Your
dominating thoughts determine your dominating actions. In the realm of our own
minds we have absolute control, or we should have, and if at any time we have
not, then there is a method by which we can gain control, and in the realm of the
mind become thorough masters. In order to get to the very foundation of the
matter, let us look to this for a moment. For if thought is always parent to our
acts, habits, character, life, then it is first necessary that we know fully how to
control our thoughts.
Here let us refer to that law of the mind which is the same as is the law in
Connection with the reflex nerve system of the body, the law which says that
whenever one does a certain thing in a certain way it is easier to do the same
thing in the same way the next time, and still easier the next, and the next, and
the next, until in time it comes to pass that no effort is required, or no effort
worth speaking of; but on the opposite would require the effort. The mind carries
with it the power that perpetuates its own type of thought, the same as the body
carries with it through the reflex nerve system the power which perpetuates and
makes continually easier its own particular acts. Thus a simple effort to control
one's thoughts, a simple setting about it, even if at first failure is the result, and
even if for a time failure seems to be about the only result, will in time, sooner or
later, bring him to the point of easy, full, and complete control.
