In his book, The Path of Prosperity, James Allen focuses on enlightening readers that their inner world determines the conditions of their outer world. He also teaches the secret to success and happiness, why suffering exists, and how to end it.
You must read the book if you are interested in attaining prosperity. Here are key teachings from the book.
- Suffering Leaves When You are Ready To Learn Its Lesson
You remain in suffering because you are never willing to learn its lessons and you don’t understand that suffering is the universe’s way of correcting you. Suffering vanishes when you are eager to learn from it because by doing so, you gain higher wisdom that enables you to overcome it.
- You deserve all your hardships
A universal law is responsible for bringing you all your misfortunes and pains because you deserve them. You need your pains and sorrows so that you understand their purpose, and become wiser, and stronger. For this reason, you must never blame anyone for your hardships.
- Heaven exists in this world
Many people believe that they’ll only live a happy life in a place called heaven after they die. However, Allen teaches that you can also live a happy life in this world because happiness comes from within. He believes the best way to find happiness is to build your inner world by cultivating virtues such as faith, and generosity.
- Natural Disasters are a result of the thoughts that dominate a country
We cannot blame one individual for causing war because disasters such as famines, floods, and wars occur as a result of the collision of poorly-directed thought forces. As James Allen puts it, ‘national events are simply the working out of the psychic forces of a nation.’ Therefore, for a nation to experience peace and avoid national disasters, every citizen must be encouraged to think higher thoughts.
- How To Awaken Your Intuition
To awaken your intuition, you must practice relaxing your mind by constantly thinking peaceful thoughts. This practice will enable you to gain power over your thoughts and desires hence causing a feeling of calmness and strength within you. The feeling will be accompanied by the awakening of your intuitive abilities which will always guide you into the light
- The secret to happiness
Unhappiness arises from self-centeredness, and attachment to material things, and for this reason, the secret to happiness is selflessness, and the detachment from material things. You also find happiness when you help those in need and lose yourself in their sorrows

The Vegetable Man, the Animal Man, and the Natural Man: The Ancient Secret Wisdom of the Kabbalah
The Kabbalah was a school of thought – in Jewish mysticism – that wanted its members to achieve oneness with the Creator. As well, it encouraged members to discover their full potential and live a fulfilling life. However, it was hidden from the public, and only a few individuals understood its teachings.
For this reason, great authors, for example, Shimon Halevi, have tried to simplify the Kabbalah so that we understand its secret esoteric teachings. In his book, The Way to Kabbalah, Shimon explains the Kabbalah’s teachings in a simple way.
Although the book has several teachings, I loved the teachings about the vegetable man, the animal man, and the natural man, and something forced me to share them with you.
The vegetable man, as Shimon puts it, ‘is any individual that aims at living a secure and regular life with minimal disturbance from outer and inner worlds.’ He dwells at the vegetable level of existence since he is mainly concerned with excreting, reproducing, eating, resting, and breathing. This man chooses the safest path and avoids risky paths because he yearns for security. For this reason, he will die in the city he was born, and he will adhere to his parents’ life plan.
On the other hand, the animal man is an evolved being. He has strong willpower and loves shaking the world with amazing discoveries. Just like an animal that wants something, the animal man will ignore pain so that he achieves his objectives. Moreover, he possesses high levels of perseverance and determination, and as Shimon writes, ‘he has an objective beyond comfort and pleasure.’ This man creates empires and uses his dreams to change the world.
Both the animal and vegetable man have big dreams. The main difference between them is that the animal man fights for his dreams, while the vegetable man chooses security over going through the risky and competitive path of dream chasing.
The natural man possesses the powers of the animal and the vegetable man. He is a powerful being, for he has power over both living and non-living things. Shimon refers to him as ‘The Spearhead of organic life.’ This man knows that he creates his own reality, and understands that the Spirit of God dwelleth in him.
Human beings are destined to be natural men. We were created to rule the earth and gain dominion over everything. Also, we were put here to develop our spiritual, physical, and mental powers to their full potential so that we become gods on this planet.
However, most people act like vegetable men. Although they want to develop into animal and natural men, they are afraid of the narrow path that leads to these states of being. They thus prefer a normal and less risky life. Eventually, they die wishing they worked on evolving into the animal and natural man because they realize that a normal life is a boring and an unfulfilling life.

The Secret History of the Illuminati
‘It should be understood that the doctrines and philosophies expounded by the Illuminati predate it by millennia. These traditions and beliefs can be traced back through the Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Knights Templars, Mystery Schools of Greece and Egypt, to ancient Sumer and their accounts of the possibly extraterrestrial Annunaki (Jim Marr; Illuminati: The Secret Society That Hijacked the World).’
Recently, I posted a book review of Jim Marr’s book: Illuminati; The Secret Society that Hijacked the World. Today, I’ll share with you Jim Marr’s amazing thoughts on the history of the Illuminati.
According to Jim Marr, the Illuminati stole its secret knowledge from ancient secret societies. These secret societies stole this secret knowledge from an advanced ancient civilization known as Sumer, which received the knowledge from extraterrestrial beings known as The Annunaki.
These secret societies were not evil associations. They all believed in God, and they claimed to understand the hidden mysteries of the world. Besides, they referred to themselves as ‘The Chosen Ones’ since they believed they were the keepers of hidden spiritual knowledge. However, they hated the church because they believed they didn’t need anyone to interpret the word of God for them.
These secret societies led to the founding of the Illuminati in 1776 by Adam Weishaupt, a student of ancient knowledge, and an admirer of ancient secret societies. Weishaupt formed the Illuminati because he wanted to use it to promote justice and equality.
He then focused on recruiting the youth: particularly professionals and individuals from wealthy families.
Later, the Illuminati attracted the interest of high-level society members – such as scientists, authors, bankers, politicians, and philosophers- who then changed its goals and used it to establish control over the masses. The Illuminati was then banned in 1785, and Adam Weishaupt was forced into exile. However, despite being banned, the Illuminati continued existing under different forms and names.
Today, it controls the world’s political, economic, religious, and social affairs. Some whistleblowers claim that the Illuminati is engineering diseases and creating wars to reduce the world’s population. On top of that, several conspiracy theorists believe the Illuminati is currently conducting moon landings and secret space flights.
Anyway, some people believe famous musicians, politicians, writers, and investors are the primary members of The Illuminati, while others claim that the main members are extraterrestrials who also rule other planets.
It’s difficult to know who exactly the Illuminati is, and its specific aims. However, what we surely know is that A RULING CLASS that controls the masses exists, for as Albert Einstein wrote, ‘the ruling class at present, has the schools and press, usually the Church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses, and make its tool of them (Jim Marr, The Secret Society That Hijacked the World).’
