Byways of Blessedness If that is so, and if no man can escape from the penalty of his evil deeds, what an inferno some of our men in power must be preparing for themselves. Do not bbyways your difficulties and perplexities as portentous of ill; by so doing you will make them ill; but regard them as prophetic of good, which, indeed, they are. It is a great day in the life of a man though at the time he knows it not when bewildering perplexities concerning the mystery of life take possession of his mind, for it signifies that his era of dead indifference, of animal sloth, of mere vegetative happiness, has come to an end, and that henceforth he is to live as an aspiring, self-evolving being.

He who regards his molest delinquencies as of the gravest nature becomes blessedenss saint. As a criminal he was considered one of the most callous and hopelessly abandoned, and the warders found him almost intractable. And as with bad habits and lying so with all sin — with lust, hatred, malice, envy, pride, vanity, self-indulgence bleessedness selfishness in all its forms; it is a state of spiritual darkness, the absence of the Light of Truth in the heart, the negation of knowledge.

Rather let me humble myself, and correct mine own errors, before assuming the position of supreme judge of those of other men. At age 38, inspired by the writings of Leo Tolstoy, he retired from employment. Hatred is a fierce fire that scorches up, in the heart of him who harbours it, all the sweet flowers of peace and happiness, and makes a hell of every place where it comes. And he finds nothing to hate, nothing to revile, nothing to condemn in that sacred place, but something to love and tend, and, in his own heart, room only for greater pity, greater patience, greater love.

While a man is involved in sin he will condemn others who are likewise involved, and the deeper and greater blessednss sin the more severe will be his condemnation of others. The task which cannot be overcome ceases to be a difficulty, and becomes an impossibility ; and anxiety is still unnecessary, for there is only one way of dealing with an impossibility — namely, to submit to it.

Let a man contemplate the strife of the world: Rested and sustained, bywags will escape the fever and the delirium of life, and, strong and happy, he will not fall fainting in the dust, nor perish by the way, but will successfully accomplish his journey.

The great man knows the vast value that inheres in moments, words, greetings, meals, apparel, correspondence, rest, work, detached efforts, fleeting obligations, in the thousand-and-one little bkessedness which press upon him for attention — briefly, in the common details of life.

He who is mastered by the small can achieve no superlative victory. Unselfishness is a spiritual possession which is only secured by ceasing to covet material possessions and enjoyments, by ceasing to regard things as for our own special and exclusive pleasure, and by our readiness to yield them up for the good of others.

It is the beginning of love, of that divine love that does not seek its own; and he who practises it, who perfects himself in it, comes at last to realise that blessed state wherein the torments of pride and vanity and hatred and retaliation are forever dispelled, and good-will and peace are unchanging and unlimited.

Not that he will cease to see ignorance and folly; not that he will cease to see suffering and sorrow and misery; not that he will cease to distinguish between acts that are pure and impure, right and wrong, for, having put away passion and prejudice, he will see these things in the full, clear light of knowledge, and exactly as they are; but he will cease to see anything-any evil power- in another which can do him injury, which he must violently oppose and strive to crush, and against which he must guard himself.

Sympathy given can never be wasted. Only when such a man wakes up to the truth that his burdens are of his own making, that they are the accumulated effects of his own acts, will he cease from unmanly self-pity and find the better way of burden-dropping; only when he opens his eyes to see that his every thought and act is another brick, another stone, built into the temple of his life will he develop the insight which will enable him to recognise his own unstable handiwork, the unflinching manliness to acknowledge it, and the courage to build more nobly and enduringly.

No situation can be difficult of itself; it is the lack of insight into its intricacies, and the want of wisdom in dealing with blessrdness, which give rise to the difficulty.

They are presented every day and every hour to every person. But it can only be developed by eradicating all hardness and unkindness, all accusation and resentment. A successful business, a perfect machine, a glorious temple, or a beautiful character is evolved from the perfect adjustment of a multliplicity of parts. No trivia or quizzes yet. Growth — gain — necessitates sacrifice — loss. The truly honest man is honest in the minutest details of his life.

Secrets to the Law of Attraction. But the most important beginning of all — that upon bessedness afflication or blessedness inevitably depends, yet is most neglected and least understood — is the inception of thought in the hidden, but causal region of the mind.

Mind is the Master. Bring a right, an unselfish, state of heart to the thing, and lo! More books from this author: It is one of the paradoxes of Truth that we gain by giving up; we lose by greedily grasping.

You have but to learn how wisely to apply yourself in that place which you now occupy. Out from the Heart.

Let each man wheel with steady sway Round the task that rules the day, And do his best. As pain and bliss inevitably follow on wrong and right beginnings, so unhappiness and blessedness are inseparably bound up with small tasks and duties. Not that a duty has any power of itself to bestow happiness or the reverse - this is contained in the attitude of the mind which is assumed towards the duty - and everything depends upon the way in which it is approached and done. Not only great happiness but great power arises from doing little things unselfishly, wisely, and perfectly, for life in its totality is made up of little things. Wisdom inheres in the common details of everyday existence, and when the parts are made perfect the Whole will be without blemish. Everything in the universe is made up of little things, and the perfection of the great is based upon the perfection of the small.
