Innate within every man is the ability to take care of himself, as surely as though he owns a business where he sells commodities. Some of us are good businessmen and some of us are not. Some of us do not realize that we are in business . . . When one realizes that he is in business with himself he commences to look over his stock, to see what he can do to prosper and progress and to increase his business. He soon discovers whether or not he is using all of his salable commodities and whether or not he is a responsible individual."
"The responsibility for conditions in one's life an be fixed only with the individual. That is the greatest lesson we have to learn. When things go wrong we always feel that it is the other person who is to blame. The people with whom we live or those with whom we are associated cannot be the cause of disharmony in our world. We need to search ourself in order to find what is wrong. We cannot shift the responsibility. Fault finding and discontent will not get us any place. We must be willing to face our own shortcomings and then work to overcome them. We cannot and will not then be held down.
Saint Bernard says, 'Nothing can work me any damage except myself; the harm that I sustain I carry with me, and never am a real sufferer but by my own fault.'"
"There is a wonderful, beautiful plan for your life. Your destiny is divine! . . . quickened through daily prayer, you will find yourself fitting into the Divine plan easily. You come to know that you are a part of a great universal plan of spiritual growth and unfoldment.
When you enter into the feeling that you are a part of the good of the world, you are at ease. Frustration vanishes. You live your life in harmony. . .
You are eternally a part of the good of the world. Know this and be at peace. All is working well in your life and affairs because you are a part of the divine plan for good for every man.
Relax. Be at ease. There is no need to struggle hard to find the good. You are a part of all that is good."
