The Two Masters: Self and Truth (Part One), and Opinions Have No Value – Ep.109

20140412_170834

Today we began the section called The Two Masters, Self and Truth, from James Allen’s book titled From Poverty to Power.

Here is an excerpt from today’s reading:

“There is one quality which preeminently distinguishes the man of Truth from the man of self, and that is humility. To be not only free from vanity, stubbornness, and egotism, but to regard one’s opinions as of no value, this indeed is true humility.”

“He who is immersed in self regards his own opinions as Truth, and the opinions of other men as error. But that humble Truth-lover who has learned to distinguish between opinion and Truth, regards all men with the eye of charity, and does not seek to defend his opinions against theirs, but sacrifices those opinions that he may love the more…”

Chris shared a few of his own thoughts: Opinions have no value because it’s your character which creates your reality. Developing a good character by developing higher spiritual values in yourself is essential.

These topics seem extremely relevant in today’s world where so many people are fighting with each other, hurting and killing each other over OPINIONS while simultaneously ignoring their own character development. And of course placing all the blame on other people.

Then Chris shared a personal story from this past week regarding his new audio mixing board and what he did when it arrived… Listen for details ;) It has to do with a technique of deliberate thinking and contemplation when making decisions.

Thanks a million to all the Pause Your Life members for their support!
