Real life began for me when the message contained in this book was revealed. It was a veritable new birth, and I owe all that I am and have to its light. From a negative condition of self-depreciation and gloom, this message has lifted me into immortal faith in my own possibility and that of all men. In meekness and gratitude to God, and to those blessed souls who became avenues of His revelation to me, I send forth this little book, trusting that others may find through it the joy of life.

For over twenty years these lessons have been given, in individual and class instruction, to thousands of students, and it was largely because of the demand for them that I undertook the work of having them published. For one year past they have been running as a serial in the magazine, "The Master Mind" (Los Angeles, Mrs. Annie Rix Militz).

Through the application of the principles taught herein I have had the satisfaction of seeing the weak in character made strong, dross turned to pure gold, every form of misery and disease healed, and hope, faith and love, take the place of doubt, despair and materialism. In the larger field of its activity, my prayer is that the harvest from this message may be great and that you, dear reader, may find in it a key to the solution of your problems.
