"The Mastery of Destiny" embodies James Allen's teachings that our thoughts can be used to increase our capabilities and to create our lives as we desire them to be. Allen tackles a number of pivotal topics in this short tome, including the Law of Cause and Effect (the Law of Attraction), breaking bad habits, and the joy of accomplishment. To Allen, "characteristics are fixed habits of mind, the results of deeds. An act repeated a large number of times becomes unconscious, or automatic- that is, it then seems to repeat itself without any effort on the part of the doer, so that it seems to him almost impossible not to do it, and then it has become a mental characteristic." Since this is the case, if you stay focused on (repetition being one of the major keys) what you want, you will get what you want with little or no conscious effort." Written in 1909, "The Mastery of Destiny" is one of nineteen books that James Allen wrote in his short nine-year literary career (which ended with his death in 1912). Chapters in this short but extremely helpful book include "Deeds, Character and Destiny," "The Science of Self-Control," "Cause and Effect in Human Contact," "Training of the Will," Thoroughness," "Mind-building and Life-Building," "Cultivation of Concentration," "Practice of Meditation," "The Power of Purpose," and "The Joy of Accomplishment."

Many people live and die without knowing what they are supposed to do. In addition, they have little understanding of themselves and their environment. As such at the end of the day, they become slaves to life and to greed. Many school leavers end up on the streets and quite a significant number keeps on moving from job to job trying to explore, within the world of work, which job meets their interests and capabilities. A majority of these people are not aware of their potential. Even those who succeed to make it in life find it hard to enjoy true freedom and happiness, due to lack of basic understanding of the essence of life. The Mastery of life, by D. N. Verkijika has as objective to help people to know themselves, their abilities, interests, personalities, values and beliefs, and to help mankind acquire the wisdom they need in order to cope with the different circumstances they may encounter in life.

One of the most popular writers in the fields of inspiration and spirituality at the turn of the 20th century, James Allen set as his life's goal the revelation of universal principles-both spiritual and practical-that empower the individual. With an emphasis on personal responsibility and finding inner power in selflessness and discipline, he here covers, in a book first published in 1907, such topics as the Power of Meditation, Self and Truth, Selfless Love, and the Realization of Perfect Peace. This is truly self-help for the inner self, from a man who believed that we alone can master our own destinies. British author and pop philosopher JAMES ALLEN (1864-1912) retired from the business world to pursue a life of writing and contemplation. Best known for As a Man Thinketh, he authored many other books about the power of thought including The Path to Prosperity, The Mastery of Destiny, and Entering the Kingdom.
James Allen, author of the bestselling As a Man Thinketh-one of the most popular writers in the fields of inspiration at the turn of the 20th century-devoted himself to helping others find inner peace and enlightenment. His prescriptions were often as practical as they were spiritual, empowering the individual by emphasizing personal responsibility. Out From the Heart continues that tradition, with essays on The Nature and Power of Mind, Formation of Habit, and Doing and Knowing, among others. Before starting down the path of truth and virtue, Allen cautions, see yourself as you are. Great discipline and patience will be required, but the result will be "the Life Beautiful."British author and pop philosopher JAMES ALLEN (1864-1912) retired from the business world to pursue a life of writing and contemplation.

This book is a sociological analysis of the relationship between modern society, in particular America, and Calvinism in the Weberian tradition. While the book continues this tradition, it further expands, elaborates on, and goes beyond earlier sociological analyses. The book examines the impact of Calvinism on modern society as a whole, thus extending, elaborating on, and going beyond the previous analyses of the influence of the Calvinist religion only on the capitalist economy. It analyzes how Calvinism has determined most contemporary social institutions, including political, civic, cultural, and economic, in its respective societies, particularly, through its derivative Puritanism, America. For that purpose, the book applies the idea of the destiny of societies or nations to American society in particular. It argues, demonstrates, and illustrates the Calvinist societal "predestination," through the Puritan determination, of American society .
