This is a scientific and practical work, by a thoughtful and able writer, on the mastery of self, and the attainment of Spiritual knowledge. The work of this writer is distinctively original, being unlike that of any other, and the practical methods which he advises are evidently based on his own experience, which gives them increased value and weight. He believes that all possibilities are in the soul of the individual, and can only be evolved by self-effort, and that every individual should so meditate and live as to mould and utilize environment, instead of succumbing to and being dominated by it. He says, "Man must become a conscious creator. He must realize that his powers for good or ill are far-reaching, that whatever else others may do or be, his conscious universe will be made for and by himself. He must learn something of the potential powers of his soul—what natural means he is using daily to weave the web of life around him, and how they may be so used as to lift him into a higher condition instead of fettering him. Hence, the key of the life and the art of living are expressed in the words Mastery and Attainment." The book is specially adapted for those who are prepared to pass through discipline to strength and peace.
