If you have read James Allen's book "As A Man Thinketh" His belief is that Mankind a growth by law & not a creation by artifice (Allen's Words specifically). Allen believes "cause & effect" in our thinking process is what makes our character. A critical point he makes is "Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results; bad thoughts & actions can never produce good results. " He goes on saying that 'Suffering' is always the effect of wrong thought in some direction & that suffering will ultimately bring about purity. Ultimately its all about "Thought" Correct thinking will in effect result in Peace, Harmony & Health. Please excuse the pun, but what are your thoughts on this subject matter?
