How our thought effect our circumstances
Man’s mind may be likened to a garden which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild but whether cultivated or neglected it must and will bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein and will continue to produce their kind
Just as a gardener cultivates his plot keeping it free from weeds and growing the flowers and fruits which he requires so may a man trend the garden of his mind weeding out all the wrong useless and impure thoughts and cultivating towards perfection the flowers and fruits of right useful and pure thoughts. pursuing this process a man sooner or later discoveries that he is the master gardener of his soul the director of his life. He also reveals within himself the laws of thought and understands with ever increasing accuracy how the thought forces and mind elements operate in the shaping of his character circumstances and destiny
Thought and character are one and as character can only manifest and discover itself through environment and circumstance the outer conditions of a person life will always be found to be harmoniously related to his inner state. This does not mean that a man circumstances at any given time are an indication of his entire character but that those circumstances are so intimately connected with some vital though element within himself that for the time being they are indispensable to his development.
Every man is where he is by the law of his being the thoughts which he has built into his character have brought him there and in the arrangement of his life there is no element of chance but all is the result of a law which cannot err. This is just as true of those who feel out of harmony with their surroundings as those who are contented with them
