One of the greatest obstacles to mental progress is a lack of specific goals which are established in such a manner that they become a regular stairway of effort where one easy activity leads to another easy effort which, when continued over a period of time, allows the ascension of the mind from the simple to the complex and from the physical through the mental to the spiritual.

Always seek for an ideal, an objective, and the proper method of application. Create a refined and individual personality, a happy and generous one. Develop clean and tidy habits, body cleanliness, and a clean mind. Be conservative, yet creative, in your dress. Avoid showiness in dress and loudness in speech.

by: Alfred J. Parker

Universal Love is based on understanding.

by: Alfred J. Parker


When viewing or thinking a thought, always clarify it for the value of its logic and reason; divest it of imagination, mystery, and all falseness; see the clear intent, whether constructive or otherwise, and never compromise with illogicality; a statement is, or is not. See it for what it really is, and do not attempt to clothe it with personality; this is what so often leads to jumping to conclusions and self-pity.

by: Alfred J. Parker

I would rather be ashes than dust; I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brillant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot; I would rather be in a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow than in a sleepy and permanent planet; the proper function of man is to live, not to exist; I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them; I shall USE my time.

by: Jack London

Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity.

by: Helen Schucman


I cannot stress too deeply the importance of one's constructive mental attitude toward life. One gets out of life only what one puts into it; everything must be seeded in different degrees. Always express happy thoughts and keep an uncomplaining mind. A complaining mind is a destructive one-destructive to health and happiness. How easily we may be made unhappy depends upon the weakness and ignorance of our own minds. Happy thoughts expressed are like the sunbeams that create warmth-that stimulate one's sense of well being and make us feel happy. Give happiness and you will receive it in return: it is a natural phenomenon of a balanced and well-ordered mind. Do not complain; instead seek the solution to the problem, and then you can do something constructive about it. This can best be accomplished by forgetting self; too much false value is placed upon self and personality, thus developing an overrated and inflated ego that sees all things in proportion to its own ignorance.

by: Alfred J. Parker


Another destructive channel to well being is comfort: it destroys self-confidence and robs one of a sense of responsibility. There is no greater gift we can bestow upon others than a happy smile and a constructive thought of well being. To be happy means that one must first have happiness within, and this comes only through a balanced mind and wisdom.

by: Alfred J. Parker

There have always been hard times. There have always been wars and troubles such as famine and disease, and some folks are born with money, some with none. In the end it is up to the man what he becomes, and none of those other things matters. It is character that counts.

by: Louis L'Amour


The greatest word in all languages is understanding. Learn to think about life: the part we are intended to play in the scheme of things. Learn to value the principle of relationship; i.e., we are all One Life, One Breath, and One God. Therefore, there is good and God in all things. Look always for the good and you will find it along with wisdom.

by: Alfred J.Parker


There exists, if I am not mistaken, an entire world which is the totality of mathematical truths, to which we have access only with our mind, just as a world of physical reality exists, the one like the other independent of ourselves, both of divine creation.

by: Charles Hermite

Love is something that should not stay the same, but something that improves with age, something that mellows and develops qualities of understanding that alter as our thinking changes. Our love of life is our conception of life, and the principle of growth allows us to alter our concept of life.

by: Kabalarian Writings


Time is the path of spiritual unfoldment, whilst Conscious Intelligence is the quality and fulfilment of time.

by: Alfred J. Parker


There is a time in every man's education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till. The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried.

by: Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you are at peace, you are living in the present.
