7 Amazing Lessons From Robert Collier’s Book: THE SECRET OF AGES

Published

on

Robert Collier(1885 -1950), is one of my favorite self-help authors who mainly wrote about faith and greatness. Robert has written incredible books such as Prayer Works and Riches Within Your Rich.

Two weeks ago, I shared 13 Stunning Quotes from his book: The Secret of Ages. Here, I will share Seven Amazing Lessons I learned from this life-changing book

  1. There is A Power in this Universe Which Is Always Ready to Help

Realize that there is a Higher Power in the universe willing to help you when in difficult situations. It won’t let you down if you demand its help. However, remember to never doubt or question it while asking for help. Instead, believe that it has the intelligence and power to do whatever you want.

Learn how to connect with the Power, and it will fulfill your desires because it has unlimited resources, and nothing can hold it back.

  1. There is A Power Within You

There is a power within you, which if properly harnessed and comprehended, can lift you to great heights. It can make you one of the most powerful men in the world if you learn how to use it.

‘When you begin to realize that the power to do anything, to be anything, to have anything, is within yourself, then and only then will you take your place in the world.’ – Robert Collier, Secret of Ages.

  1. You Will Never Succeed if You Don’t Believe You’ll Succeed

If you want to succeed you must believe that you will succeed. If you don’t believe in your success, you will fail because this belief will demotivate you, kill your dreams, and prevent you from working towards success.

  1. See The Things You Want as Already Yours

Believe that you have everything you want, and realize that things will come to you when you need them. For this reason, trust that all your desires are coming to fruition, and never worry or complain when you lack anything because everything you want is already given to you.

  1. 5 Steps to Achieving Personal Efficiency
  • Pinpoint what you want.
  • Evaluate the things you will have to do to get what you want.
  • Plan ahead
  • Do one thing at a time
  • Once you start, never Stop.
  1. Being Young is a Mental State

Getting and looking old occurs when you expect to get old because you can be active and light-hearted today as you were 25 years ago if you realize your youthfulness.

Your body always takes the form of your mental state because it’s a slave to your mind. Therefore, always believe that you are young and full of energy, and you will appear young because your body will strive to match your mental state.

  1. Fear is the Primary Cause of all Diseases

You often succumb to fear when you imagine having a certain disease. This fear leads to sickness because the human-body will strive to match your fearful thoughts by altering the heart rate, secretions, and other bodily functions essential for a healthy body.

8 Key Learnings From Eckhart Tolle’s Book: A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

Published

on

Eckhart Tolle, in his book: A New Earth, teaches the negative effects of the ego, and the factors that strengthen it. Also, he teaches how to transcend the ego, and stop identifying yourself with temporary things.

The book enables readers to shift their consciousness and live a fulfilling life. Here are the primary lessons I learned from it.

  1. Stop Labeling Things

The naming of both living and non-living things results in us failing to realize the true nature of everything. Avoid labeling things, and you will realize that everything is a mystery.

For instance, when you see an ant, don’t call it ant, just see it as a six-legged creature with consciousness and you will realize how mysterious the ant is. Similarly, when you see a bird, don’t think of it as a bird, instead, think of it as a creature with flying abilities, and you will realize that the bird is a miracle.

When you don’t cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life that was lost a long time ago.’ – Eckhart Tolle

  1. How Companies Trick You Into Buying Useless Things At A High Price

Many companies make you buy valueless things at a high price by making you believe that these items will add immense value to your life. They make you believe that you will be happy or famous if you buy expensive products such as Gucci or Louis Vuitton bags. However, these products become valueless when many people buy them.

  1. How to let go of the attachment to material things

The attachment to material things is disastrous as it might result in chronic worry, anxiety, and unhappiness. We must, therefore, learn to let go of this attachment. But how do we let go?

Eckhart Tolle teaches that we can let go by realizing our attachment. Secondly, he teaches that this attachment disappears when we stop seeking happiness and security from these things.

  1. Poverty is a result of the ego

Everyone in this world can have more than enough. However, some egocentric individuals amass excess resources and force a large percentage of the world to share what is left. Their egos make them not to care that their greed is resulting in people lacking basic resources.

  1. The adverse effect of identifying yourself with your physical appearance

The modern society has been tricked into believing that beautiful, curvy girls and strong handsome men are the most valuable individuals. This belief has resulted in most of us using our physical appearance to determine our self-worth.

Little do we know that identifying ourselves with our physical appearance can lead to chronic stress and anxiety when our physical appearance fades. Beautiful girls and handsome men usually descend into depression when their beauty starts fading.

  1. The definition of Spiritual Awakening

According to Eckhart Tolle, spiritual awakening is the realization that what you think, experience, and perceive is not who you are, and that you can never find your true self in material things.

  1. 6 Main Things That Strengthen the Ego (Your Lower Self)
  • Wanting to be right all the time.
  • Judging
  • Anger
  • Complaining
  • Showing off
  • Feeling bad about other people’s success.

8. Give what you want to get what you need

Give anything you think people are not giving you. For instance, if people neither love nor respect you, you must start loving and respecting people.

You always receive what you give. Therefore, give away what you think is inadequate, and soon you will have more than enough. As Eckhart Tolle puts it, ‘whatever you think the world has failed to give you, you already have, but you will never know you have it unless you allow it to flow out.’

Six Powerful Spiritual Teachings From Osho’s Book:God’s Got A Thing About You

Published

on

Osho’s Book, God’s Got A Thing About You, provides a dialogue between a master and his disciple. The disciple asks his master many spiritual questions which the master answers wisely.

The master provides wonderful spiritual teachings about God, the ego, anxiety, dealing with negativity, and so on. The book is enlightening, and reading it will enable you to realize many secrets to spiritual enlightenment.

Here, are 6 wonderful teachings Osho provides in the Book

  1. Darkness Disappears When We Discover Our Light

Everything in the universe including us is made of light because matter is condensed light. Osho teaches that our world brightens when we discover this light because we will start perceiving everything including hardships as a good and necessary part of our existence.

Therefore, we perceive some things as good and others bad, because we have not yet discovered our inner light which eliminates the barriers of our perception.

  1. Work On Your Inner Self and the External Conditions Will Work In Your Favour

Never become too concerned with your external conditions because you don’t possess the power to completely change them. Instead, put all your energy in the inner journey, and what you want will come to you with minimal effort.

As Jesus puts it, ‘seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all these things shall be given unto you.’ When asked where the kingdom of God is, Jesus replied. ‘it is within you.’ Jesus also knew that working on your inner self will automatically heal your external conditions.

  1. How to deal with negative thoughts

The best way to deal with negative thoughts is to watch them, and allow yourself to feel negative. Besides this, never worry or identify with them because doing so intensifies them. Realize that these thoughts have nothing to do with you, and you will be peaceful.

  1. Self-acceptance leads to creativity

Self-acceptance makes you thankful and glad to be alive, and creativity naturally arises from gratitude and gladness. Besides this, self-acceptance results in good mental health hence increasing your creative abilities. That being said, we should love ourselves, and accept what and who we are.

  1. Negativity Is a Sign of Growth

A negative state of mind proves that you are growing. If you are constantly positive, and you have nothing to worry about, then you are not growing. Everyone that grows must face obstacles hence leading to negativity. Even rivers have to pass around mountains, rocks, and through valleys before they reach the ocean.

  1. All people are just like you

If you keenly observe your family, friends, and neighbors, you will realize that everybody is just like you. Everybody has problems, everybody is anxious, and everybody is afraid of taking risks. For this reason, there is nothing abnormal about your fears, doubts, and anxieties because everybody is experiencing them.

Hope You Loved The Teachings
