One of my great joys is discovering—and rediscovering—the work of the wisdom teachers of the past. I have recently been inspired to go back and read again the work of Thomas Troward, who lived in India and Great Britain from 1847 to 1916.
Summer is a wonderful time to rejuvenate our bodies in the warm rays of the sun and renew our thoughts for a more prosperous and abundant life. I wanted to share an important lesson I learned while writing Wishes Fulfilled.
33rd Verse One who understands others has knowledge; one who understands himself has wisdom. Mastering others requires force; mastering the self needs strength. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich. One who gives himself to his position surely lives long. One who gives himself to the Tao surely lives forever.
Every single thought you have can be assessed in terms of whether it strengthens or weakens you. Authentic wisdom is the ability to monitor yourself at all times to determine your relative state of weakness or strength, and to shift out of those thoughts that weaken you. In this way, you keep yourself in an upbeat, higher state of consciousness, and you prevent your thoughts from weakening every single organ of your body. When you use your mind to empower you, you're appealing to that which uplifts and raises your spirits.
There's a level of awareness available to you that you are probably unfamiliar with. It extends upward and transcends the ordinary level of consciousness that you're most accustomed to. At this higher plane of existence, which you and every human being who has ever lived can access at will, the fulfillment of wishes is not only probable—it is guaranteed.

A person who lives in a state of unity with the Source of all life doesn’t look any different from ordinary folks. These people don’t wear a halo or dress in special garments that announce their godlike qualities.
