This is one of my favorite book – The Secret of Ages by Robert Collier. This book does not tell you any “secret”. There is no secret, only people who choose or choose not to see what is self-evident. The power of mind and attitude will determine your success in life. Well written book and organized, easy to read but ultimately you will have to do the work for this book to be use. “Faith without work is death,” same goes to “Reading without doing (practice lessons) is foolish.”

In this book Robert Collier unlocks the hidden meaning behind the world’s most enduring parables, myths, and religious treats. Since you were created in God’s image, Collier writes, you too can wield the power of creation through your own mental images. He will show you that the way you think and the decision you make have a direct influence on successful and happy you are.

Thru this book, you will discover how to:
-      Use your subconscious mind to tap unseen forces and energies
-      Commit to a single, definite purpose
-      Discover how the universal mind working
-      Your guarantee against failure
-      Form mental pictures that lead to your success

L’Envoi“The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.” This field is your own consciousness—a treasure you find within yourself —, which others cannot see. But you know it for the in -dwelling Spirit—“the Father within you”—and are willing to sell all that you have because this treasure is worth more than all other possessions. If you have begun to realize this treasure, and use it even in a small way, the most wonderful thing that can happen to anyone on this planet has happened to you. What does it mean? It means that an ordinary human being, afflicted with all the sufferings and fears and worries and superstitions of the average man, has learned the Law of Being. It means that he has acquired a power above all that of his would-be destroyers. It means that he has put his foot upon the Rock of Life that the Doorway of Heaven is open before him, that all of Good is as free to him as the air he breathes“There hath not failed one word of all His good promises.” “And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, God hath fulfilled the same unto us.”Surely we have every reason to be grateful for all the good round about us. Surely we should be thankful for the infinite power that has been given to us.And being truly grateful, by the way, is the surest evidence of real faith that there is. Faith, you know, is “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen,” Remember, when Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, how He first prayed, and then thanked the Father for answering His Prayer? There was not yet any material evidence that the prayer had been answered. But Jesus had perfect faith in the Father. And it was justified. Immediately He had given thanks, Lazarus came forth from the tomb!The world today is so much more wonderful than it was to former generations. Mankind has begun to glimpse its illimitable powers. The whole world is plastic and sensitive to new ideas. The soul of man is finding itself, and learning its relation to the Infinite. The veil between the visible and the invisible is being drawn aside. Through seeing the “Father do the works,” we are becoming more assured of our own power, beginning to assert “the Father that is within us.” We know that, given the right understanding, the works that Jesus did we can do also. We recognize his “miracles” as divinely natural laws, part of God’s continuous plan.So let us go with Him unto the Mount of Vision, taking as our motto His words—“See that thou make all things according to the pattern showed thee in the Mount.”
