In times of turmoil, a vast hunger for a better life, and a better world grows. In just such times the New Thought movement took root in the 1800s. Their messages that resonated then, communicate the same impact of hope and clarity needed today. The James Allen Master Course is presented with a specific mission in mind. That is to offer a better voice from a special selection of James Allen books packed with content relevant to our needs today to answer the concerns of change and turmoil that persists in every generation. As an example, in one of the books we will share during the hours that follow, James Allen wrote, “Such a man sees everything only in its relation, or imagined relation, to his opinion, whereas the thinker sees things as they are.”
James Allen was a major leader in the new thought movement and his book As a Man Thinketh continues to be a best seller to millions. During the years of turmoil during his life, Allen entered a creative period where he then published his first of many books, From Poverty to Power. In the forward he wrote, “I looked around upon the world, and saw that it was shadowed by sorrow and scorched by the fierce fires of suffering. And I looked for the cause. I looked around, but could not find it; I looked in books, but could not find it; I looked within, and found there both the cause and the self-made nature of that cause. I looked again, and deeper, and found the remedy. I found one Law, the Law of Love; one Life, the Life of adjustment to that Law; one Truth, the truth of a conquered mind and a quiet and obedient heart. And I dreamed of writing a book which should help men and women, whether rich or poor, learned or unlearned, worldly or unworldly, to find within themselves the source of all success, all happiness, all accomplishment, all truth. And the dream remained with me, and at last became substantial; and now I send it forth into the world on its mission of healing and blessedness, knowing that it cannot fail to reach the homes and hearts of those who are waiting and ready to receive it.”
Here we are, generations apart and once again living in times of turmoil. A new way of thinking is again in demand. We find that James Allen’s discovery is just as timely as the day he wrote the following books. The quest for understanding is the foundation of this course. From Poverty to Power is just one of the complete books we will share in this James Allen Master Course from Nightingale Conant.
This course includes the unedited manuscripts from six complete James Allen books as follows: From Poverty to Power, The Way of Peace, Above Life’s Turmoil, Men and Systems, The Master of Destiny, and Light on Life’s Difficulties...written in his final year. In the James Allen Master Course, we cover his life’s work from the beginning to the end.
