Quote from Wallace D. Wattles:
Genius is the union of man and God in the acts of the soul. Great men are always greater than their deeds. They are in connection with a reserve power that is without limit.
The personal ego must be suppressed and replaced with the ‘universal ego.’
If you want to feel connected to your own purpose, know this for certain: Your purpose will only be found in service to others, and in being connected to the something far greater than your mind/body/ego.
You must learn to see men and women…as perfect beings advancing to become complete.
As far as I’m concerned, the spiritual life is just like any other endeavor—you can succeed or fail. And when the goal is actual evolution beyond ego in an intersubjective context, success or failure is plain for all to see.
The mass of men lead quiet lives of desperation.
“Without faith it is impossible to please God,” and without faith it is impossible for you to become great. The distinguishing characteristic of all really great men and women is an unwavering faith.
It is within the power of every man to become great.
You must learn to see the world as being produced by evolution; as a something which is evolving and becoming, not as a finished work.
Man must cast out of himself everything which separates him from God. He must will to live the divine life, and he must rise above all moral temptations; he must forsake every course of action that is not in accord with his highest ideals.
Let your thoughts be ruled by principle, and then live up to your thoughts.
Every man comes into the world with a predisposition to grow along certain lines, and growth is easier for him along those lines than in any other way.
