More to this than meets the eye.....,
This review is from: The Magic (Paperback)
Positive thinking is good and also understanding about attraction, however this is a very deep subject and more involved than many people realise. There are very many factors which will determine what you can realistically expect to achieve in any lifetime. This to me is a populist, Hollywood style, get rich quick series of books which don't tell the whole story and neither can they be expected to tell the whole story- its beyond the level of understanding of 90% of the population. Basically all people have limitations, limitations beyond which you won't normally be able to go beyond. The paradox is that the more essential understanding you have the less likely you'd be using books like this.
The general population would be better employed starting to understand the real nature of our existence, so called life and so called death and also the nature of 'mind'.
I very strongly advise people to read 'Fourteen Lesson in Yogi Philosophy' by Yogi Ramacharaka. This book was written in the very early 1900s and lays down in very plain and simple language the basics and facts re our existence that everyone should know.
Without understanding this basic knowledge you ought not be reading populist 'how to improve your life' type books. Let me say just this: if you can't get '14 lessons' under your belt don't waste your time with these 'Get Rich Quick' type of best sellers as they mostly won't work and you will begin to understand why they can't always work. As I said previously, we all are subject to limitations in one or more areas of our lives.
