To become all you can be, you must live more consciously. You must become more alert, more aware and more awake. You must take more control over your thought process so that the combines power of the various mental laws is moving you in the direction of your own choosing rather than steering you blindly on a form of mental autopilot.
As you stand back and appreciate the incredibly complex, interconnected events that have brought you to where you are in life right now, you will begin to develop the perspective of the philosopher, of the superior intellect. You begin to superimpose on your experience what is called a “sense of coherence”, an attitude and a feeling that your life is part of something greater that yourself and that everything fits together and happens for a reason.
As you think of your life as a series of events and experiences that are conspiring toward your achieving some great goal or making some great contribution to mankind, you begin to develop a “sense of destiny”, the hallmark of potential greatness as a human being.
A seed, dropped into the ground, spring into activity, and in the act of living produces a hundred more seeds; life, by living, multiplies itself. It is forever becoming More.
Intelligence is under this same necessity for continuous increase. Every thought we think makes it necessary for us to think another thought; consciousness is continually expanding. Every fact we learn leads is to the learning of another fact; knowledge is continually increasing.
We are subject to the urge of life, seeking expression, which ever drives us on to know more, to do more, and to be more.
The desire for riches is simply the capacity for larger life seeking fulfillment.
It is essential, however that your purpose should harmonize with the purpose that is in All. You must want real life, not mere pleasure of sensual gratification.
