Another copy I obtained free and printed in fine print 4 per page.
A lot of old timers-years ago but still very effective mind, body and other practices.
He has a different approach, not like the exercise/strict posture/body builder type practice.
Pictures show 5 of the antique book pages.
Please do not waste your money on this poorly executed xerox copy. If one wants to purchase the book, please choose an established and trusted publisher or go to the library and check one out.
It seems this author operated under his own theory, and, in as such as it helped him, he seeks to wipe out other methods as untruths or misdirections. Like one religion seeks to discredit others because their way is right or their belief is correct.
The author mentions the need to be open-minded and in the next sentence says that if a reader is deliberately in opposition to the author’s point of view, the reader has no hope to benefit.
I read this book, disagreeing with more than half of the author’s conclusions. Yet, I was open-minded enough to continue to read as I wanted to see where he could take me. I am open-minded. This author is telling me, in a close-minded way, that such opposition will have no hope to benefit. “If you want to learn, you have to believe me”. It was more a less a threat to believe what he is saying otherwise you will suffer—which is terribly close minded. Also, it was a written form of blatant manipulation, as is his use of the word ‘mere’ when he wants to discredit something.
He cannot hope to have written this expecting readers to not have the ability for critical thought. Who else would be attracted to such writings? Like so many other authors from that time period, he has conclusions that just don’t stack up with what we know now.
Direct quote: In a word, I want by this phrase to suggest the idea of being open-minded. For even in reading this, if the individual deliberately puts himself in opposition to my point of view, he can by no possibility hope to benefit.
If you find yourself sort of wanting to believe him after this statement, then you’ve been manipulated.
Opposition to a point of view is healthy. Being told that unless you believe in one way, then you will suffer is tyranny. And the author missed the biggest clue of all: everything works. Why is that? Faith-healing works, medicine works, hypnotism works, conscious control works, new positive thought works . . . Why? Because we are the creators and the dreamers of the dreams.
Apparently opposition has interfered with the advance of science. His writing on the subconscious and conscious is so back to front it’s scary, and he constantly contradicts himself.
