I have this little book called The Law of Success by Parmahansa Yogananda and it’s the greatest bit of wisdom. Very to the point, it’s multi-layered in its depth. The following is a great excerpt about Destiny. Enjoy
YOU CAN CONTROL DESTINY
Mind is the creator of everything. You should therefore guide it to create only good. If you cling to a certain thought with dynamic will power, it finally assumes a tangible outward form. When you are able to employ your will always for constructive purposes, you become the controller of your destiny.
Mind is the creator of everything. You should therefore guide it to create only good.
I have just mentioned three important ways to make your will dynamic:
- Choose a simple task or accomplishment that you have never mastered and determine to succeed with it;
- Be sure you have chosen something constructive and feasible, then refuse to consider failure;
- Concentrate on a single purpose, using all your abilities and opportunities to forward it.
But you should always be sure, within the calm region of your inner Self, that what you want is right for you to have, and in accord with God’s purposes. You can then use all the force of your will to accomplish your object; keeping your mind, however, centered on the thought of God– the Source of all power and all accomplishment.
And that, friends, is one way to do it. Good Luck.
