DELETING FROM BLOG (3)
I AM DELETING THE INFO THAT WAS HERE FROM THE BLOG, PUTTING SOMETHING ELSE HERE FOR GOOGLE TO CHEW ON AND CACHE BEFORE COMPLETELY DELETING THE POST.
"...A man only begins to be a man when he ceases to whine and revile..."
From the book:
...Man is made or unmade by himself; in the armory of thought he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself. He also fashions the tools with which he builds for himself heavenly mansions of joy and strength and peace. By the right choice and true application of thought, man ascends to the Divine Perfection; by the abuse and wrong application of thought, he descends below the level of the beast... A man only begins to be a man when he ceases to whine and revile, and commences to search for the hidden justice which regulates his life. And as he adapts his mind to that regulating factor, he ceases to accuse others as the cause of his condition, and builds himself up in strong and noble thoughts; ceases to kick against circumstances, but begins to use them as aids to his more rapid progress, and as a means of discovering the hidden powers and possibilities within himself...
