Back To Screwl: Ain’t Edgykayshun Grate?

The dog days of August will soon be upon us, and with them, millions of happy, skipping, playing children will soon be off to their local Amairukuhn public edgykayshun screwl where they will listen attentively to their teachers facilitators who will teach facilitate the transfer of information and critical thinking ability osmotic absorption of sensitivity and higher consciousness and politically correct attitudes, and learn how to spell and read use learn how to invent gender neutral pronouns as they spell correctly and use proper English grammar and diction fill their text messages with endless abbreviations thus facilitating faster communication obfuscating and ruining any chance of real communication. Then Pavlov’s bell will ring, the children will salivate, and run out to swing and play and talk with each other bury their faces in their ipads, conduct no social interaction with each other, sit on picnic table benches, swill corn syrup from soda, and grow fat, stupid, lazy, and own their own butthurt safe spaces.

Yes, that’s right: we’re going to have another edgykayshun rant, and if you think that things cannot possibly be as bad as all this, think again. As Gary Lawrence and I pointed out in our book Rotten to the (Common) Core, the Amairikuhn screwl – to borrow radio commentator Rush Limbaugh’s apt term for it – is nothing but a big social engineering experiment, from kindergarten all the way to graduate quackademia. But wait, there’s more! Ms. C.V. found this article and sent it along:

https://www.thecollegefix.com/post/34912/embed/#?secret=qxRvn10lrb

Yes, if you have white skin, you’re the problem. Now, I don’t know about you, but back in the day, this would be called racism. Get this:

The “Reimagining Education Summer Institute” conference, organized by Columbia University’s Teachers College, was held in mid-July and concentrated on “opportunities and challenges of creating and sustaining racially, ethnically and socio-economically integrated schools,” according to its website.

The event, in its second year, drew 300 participants that mostly consisted of K-12 teachers and principals, the institute’s director Amy Wells said in a phone interview with The College Fix. The four-day conference included plenary sessions, dozens of workshops and dialogue sessions.

One presentation, called “Whiteness in schools,” provided “a history of Whiteness, and will invite participants into a discussion of how Whiteness and White culture shapes what happens in schools,” according to a description.

One workshop discussed “3 ways to face white privilege in the classroom.” Presented by Teachers College postdoctoral fellow Jamila Lyiscott, a summary of the workshop states it included “activities and critical dialogue around White privilege to connect personal responsibility to pedagogical possibilities for the classroom.”

And a workshop on “Teaching for Social Justice” sought to challenge colonialist and racist pedagogies.

“We will challenge Eurocentric pedagogical approaches that not only under-prepare students for the realities of our increasingly multiethnic, multilingual, globalized society, but are also rooted in colonial and racist ideologies that stifle the voices, identities, and realities of students of color,” a description states.

Yes, whiteness, race, is the problem.  Uh huh. And if you believe that, I have several bridges in Manhattan for sale… cheap. (Cash only, no bitcoins, or credit or debit cards.)

This is nothing new, for as we pointed out in Rotten to the (Common) Core, the Progressive Education Association, a “brainchild” of the busybody John Dewey, published a study in December of 1943, where we read the following commissarial ukase:

“This is a global war… we are writing now the credo by which our children must live (for those of you who remember English grammar, note the imperative mood).

They were drawing up, by their own admission (cue trumpet fanfare), “a blueprint for the children of the world.”(pp. 82-83).

Thus it has nothing to do with whiteness; this is the handy dandy “racism” card that has been and is being played to wage a cultural war rather on the foundations of Western Civilization, of which, as I have stated before, there are three fundamental bases: (1) Judaism, and the idea of covenant or contract, and hence, equality before the law and a universal rule of law (2) Christianity, and the doctrine of the incarnation, which implies a sacredness to human work, and to intellectual and emotional life (that pretty well encompasses the arts and sciences), and (3) the humanistic impulse, coming from the Renaissance and Enlightenment, which created the enormous impetus for critical thought, scholarship, the study of the craft and tradition of artistic and scientific creativity and discipline. Yes, we call them “academic disciplines” because it took discipline, dedication, and responsibility to study and master them, whether one was studying painting or physics, music or mathematics.

But wait, there is still more:

There was also a “Deconstructing Racial Microaggressions” workshop in which attendees pledged to address racial insults at their schools.

Institute director Wells, a professor of sociology and education at the Teachers College, said the conference came about out of her belief that the “missing piece” regarding issues of integration in education is what goes on inside the classroom.

“It’s always about getting kids into the building and I just think … we’re always missing the educators who actually do the work and who actually interact with the kids on daily basis and help them understand race in terms of how they’re relating to other students,” she said.

And of course, the problem here is that when edgykayshun becomes social engineering in pursuit of eradicating “microagressions,” there will be no end of the process, and the edugarchy – as Mr. Lawrence and I called the edgykayshunal oligarchy – is permanently empowered to subject teachers and students to its own aggressions, which are hardly of a “micro” nature, but rather of a marco nature. After all, it’s a war on western culture. The result, the goal, of all of this, of teacher certification and the colleges of “edgykayshun,” was to make teachers not the ministers of a tradition, but rather to turn them into “change agents”, the sergeants in the field of social engineering, carrying out the orders of the generals in the edgykayshun colleges for social engineering. THe teaching certificate is nothing but a “license to practice” a particular kind of social engineering.

So here’s a thought: Why not simply teach language and letters, and thereby create that common cultural matrix that all  can participate in, and thereby eradicate the divisiveness championed by our edugarchs? Consider this op-ed piece shared by many people this past week, and written by a former teacher, Ms. Linda Shrock Taylor:

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/07/linda-schrock-taylor/rotten-common-core/embed/#?secret=0srxYAfdsJ

Ms. Taylor is correct: the heart of the problem is a system where regulators enforce their stunted vision of the world through “teaching colleges” and the whole implied process of certification, backing up by a federal goobernment that is completely out of control and in the hands of some of the most corrupt, psychopathic and narcissistic twits in history, who pander, not to education, but to the corporations peddling academic quackery, and the “education” departments that long ago declared their cultural treason.

Understand what this means; it means increasingly that those of you with children will have to be like the mother in Ms. Taylor’s article; you’ll have to take up the mantle of education of your children yourself, and in defiance of the “cultural values” of racism, bigotry, and divisiveness and “microagressions” being championed by the edugrachy. They will not do it. They sold out decades ago. Understand that the progressive movement long ago targeted education for infiltration and co-option, to use it as a means of creating their “blueprint for the children of the world” and writing the “credo by which they must live.”

We see the result. Their “credo” is an absolute disaster, socially, culturally, and most importantly, in terms of the generations of idiots it has churned out.

Lord Blackheath Surfaces Again…But This Time It’s Not…


Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
July 31, 2017

All of you remember Lord James of Blackheath, don’t you? Well, in case you’ve forgotten who he is, he was the British peer who, a few years ago, stood in the House of Lords and gave a most peculiar speech that cited unusual amounts of gold in the world. I wrote about his speech – which was causing something of a minor fuss on the internet at that time – in my book Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations. In fact, I cited much of his remarks, as Hansard reported them, in that book. The upshot of Lord Blackheath’s remarks was that he was trying to get to the bottom of how much gold there was in the world, and as a result, contacted acquaintances in the Old Lady of Threadneedle Street (the Bank of England), and was given answers that amounted to approximately 1500 tons. There was, of course, much more to Lord Blackheath’s remarks than just that, but that was one of the things that grabbed my attention, for at around the same time, the calls within Germany by Germans to audit their country’s gold reserves had reached such a pitch that the Bundesbank decided to begin the process of repratriation of Germany’s gold deposits from London, Paris, and most importantly, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Of course, I don’t for a moment assume these pressures were the only reason Germany decided to do this. If anything, they were convenient pressures, when the real reasons were probably geopolitical, and growing mistrust between Berlin on the one hand, and London and Washington on the other.

In any case, the amounts being cited by Lord Blackheath were far below even the reported amounts of just German gold allegedly on deposit in New York. And of course, Lord Blackheath himself expressed no considerable mystification at the time at not being able to get any rational approximation from his contacts.

Well, Mr. J.R. found this article and passed it along, and I regard it as so significant in terms of my “high octane speculations” about hidden systems of finance, that I absolutely have to comment on it. Here’s the article:

Lord James of Blackheath: I Helped Smuggle Children Used For Slavery And Sex

Now, much as I’d like to belabor the moral myopia of helping to smuggle children out of the United Kingdom when one suspects “something might be going on but I did it anyway,” I suspect the article itself does a decent enough job of that.

So I will pass on to my high octane speculation of the day by way of a bit more background: my friend and colleague, former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban development Catherine Austin Fitts has expressed the opinion – during an interview with Daniel Liszt, a.k.a. the “Dark Journalist” – that the western elites have always admired slavery as a system of economic privilege and control. The problem, she averred, was that the capital could not be “perfected,” after all, slaves ran away to pursue a life of freedom and their own economic self interest. Now, however, the means of “perfecting the capital” are available, as the following article suggests:

Wisconsin Company to Implant Microchips in Employees

Most of us, I’m quite certain, who read the second article will have a “John of Patmos moment” contemplating the dire implications of that development.

But if one is running covert human trafficking rings – whether for child sex slavery, adult sex slavery, or other forms of slavery – such technology does allow one to “keep track of the cargo,” i.e., to perfect the “capital.”

Which brings me chin-to-chin with my…

…High Octane Speculation of the day: For years, in several books, blogs, and interviews, I’ve maintained that there is in existence a hidden system of finance, whose basic “mechanics” is the trade in bearer securities backed by “gold”, and hence, for me, I am of the opinion that the various “bearer bond scandals” are not, in spite of all official protestations to the contrary, easily dismissible as “simple counterfeiting scams.” We are assured – at one time even by President Obama himself – that the “securitiesrecovered during these scandals are completely fake, and that there is absolutely nothing to it. Yet, the same scam is run repeatedly, over and over. As I’ve observed several times: “one does not counterfeit a seven dollar bill.” In other words, even if the “securities” recovered during these scandals are fakes, no counterfeiter would attempt to run the same scam over and over again, unless there was an element of truth lurking somewhere in the center of it. The fact that many of these “securities” are “gold-backed” bearer bonds, takes us back once again to lord Blackheath’s mystification a few years ago on the floor of the House of Lords, as recorded in Hansard’s. My argument then was, in order to make a hidden system of finance work, and remain off the books, one key mechanism was the physical movement of such “securities.”

Further research, however, revealed something else, namely, that the term “gold” often functioned as a codename for drugs, and given the overwhelming size of the underground drug economy as a proportion of the financial system, I also concluded that the “gold” backing these “securities” may not have been exclusively actual bullion, but drugs.

In recent years, however, we’ve seen an increase of stories about human trafficking and sex-slavery rings, involving every demographic from little children to Siamese women. The extent of these stories has touched every continent, implying that there are world-wide networks involved in this “business,” which, given its vast extent, must also comprise an underground economy of considerable size. The Taken series of movies with Irish actor Liam Neeson explores this brutal system in fictional guise. The political purpose of such networks is, of course, rather obvious, for it entangles the rich and politically powerful in compromising activity, which create what Catherine Fitts has described as “control files” to blackmail compliance. With this possibility, one is looking at the implication that such rings are deeply and intimately entangled with the “deep state” and various intelligence agencies, and thus, with my hypothesized hidden system of finance.

Which brings me back to Lord Blackheath, and a final, new, speculation. What if “gold” is code not only for “drugs,” but for human “cargo” and “capital”, as part of this enormous network? In other words, what if slavery itself is a crucial component of this hidden system of finance? Need laborers to help build all those underground secret installations? If that sounds far-fetched, don’t forget that there’s precedent: the Nazis did it, and incidentally, they did it within an economic empire being run by the SS, where every unfortunate victim was tagged, tattooed, and numbered as the “capital assets” of the system.

Such a speculation goes a long way, for example, to explain the difficulties facing Vatican bank reform attempts, for if my speculation be true, then that bank would be intimately connected to these “financial activities,” and hence, attempts to deal with clergy scandal abuses and Vatican financial reform are not two separate issues, but intimately connected. Just recently, George

Cardinal Pell, who was tasked by Pope Francis to oversee the Vatican budget, has returned to Australia to answer sexual abuse charges.

However, if what I am proposing is true, then the extent of this human trafficking-finance ring will not be confined solely or exclusively to the Vatican: it will be intimately entwined with other large financial institutions. The Vatican might just end up being the (convenient) patsy. The hypothesis might even go a long way to explain one possible reason behind all the mysterious banker deaths and “suicides” of the past few years.

June Book Haul 2017 | [Summer Book Haul Part 2] | #RetroReads | #SmartReads

LeatherBoundBookHaulJune

TheBreakaway | BreakawayConciousness

July 30, 2017

“A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”
– Carl Sagan

“If you want children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales.”
– Einstein

“Books are the mirrors to the soul.”
Virginia Wolf

This one’s a quick haul.  To spice it up just a smidge, this bookhaul will only feature leatherbound books purchased early summer.  Enjoy.

Dracula & Other Horror Classics by Bram Stoker

A novel that could be said to be ‘ahead of its time’.  Wasn’t sure what to expect, but I can honestly now say that I really enjoyed the unique point of view brought about through the unorthodox way the story is related by Bram Stoker.  Stoker employed the use of letters, personal entries, ship logs, newspaper articles, etc., to tell the story from each character’s unique point of view.  Certainly this is something one nigh never sees, but which worked out rather well given its uniqueness.  The story is a bit slow at times, but engrossing enough to keep you going if you’re a fan of the genre.

The Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov

One of the classics in Science Fiction, from one of the Big 3 in science fiction.  What’s not to like?

It’s been said this is one of Asimov’s great works and I am looking to finishing it.  Finished book #3 in the Foundation series, which is the first book of this trilogy three days ago.  I really enjoyed the book, although enjoyed the previous prequel duet more.   Still, I am looking forward to finishing this trilogy and moving on to the last books thereafter.  Definitely a highly recommended series for fans of science fiction.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Since I had never read anything from Gaiman, I knew not what to expect.  That said, many of my friends really enjoy his work and thought I would as well.  Having read this book, I was intricately surprised at the uniqueness with which he brought about this particular story employing Gods as the foundation for various characters throughout the story.  Not what was expected, but in a very refreshing way.

The Wizard Of Oz by L. Frank Baum

The Wizard Of Oz, Barnes & Noble Ed. features the first five novels of the Wizard Of Oz Series.  It’s a book that’s simple to read, but quite entertaining as well.  I myself am only familiar with parts of the story, so thought it interesting to avail myself of the rest whenever there’s downtime around.  Back when The Wizard Of Oz initially came out there wasn’t almost anything like it out there, and it made it stand out like lightning in a clear sky.  That said, it has stood the test of time as a classic in literature.

LeatherBoundBookHaulJune2

The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri

The quintessence of the classics, The Divine Comedy was a bit harder to read given its old English writing, but it’s not anything someone can’t overcome with a little hard work and perseverance.  After a while you begin picking up the language rather swiftly and it becomes nigh automatic how easy you can comprehend what’s being said.  A very rewarding, breathtaking and imaginative book, especially for its time.**

The Ultimate Hitchiker’s Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Although the plot could have been better, the humor more than makes up for it.  This book is downright hilarious while still offering a very novel story that holds the ship above water.

Star Trek: The Classics Episodes by James Blish & J.A. Lawrence

Surprisingly, this was a very great book.  The quality of the short stories is great, and the stories within all read seamlessly, and are much better and interesting than I expected.  I really hope B&N follows up with another book of later episodes.

All things considered, it’s been a busy and entertaining few weeks.  Having read most of these it was a very unique experience and one glad I took the time to undertake.  I am usually more fond of reading nonfiction research books, but now and again I opt to involve a dash of something different.  Thankfully, all of these books delivered and a few were better than expected.  I look forward to setting up more time to finish up those I haven’t read, and hopefully continue to catch up on some of the classics.

Have any of you read any of these or have any books you would like to recommend?  What are your favorites?  Hope all is well.

___________________________________________________________
Note**

The Divine Comedy was actually purchased two months earlier than June.  Since the book surreptitiously snuck into the picture, thought it worth while to comment.

“…Books are bright because they provide lights to our dim vision, and because they clearly project a lantern light that might help us discern our way in the world, or make difficult choices when it’s hard for us to see the right ones.  But they’re bright too because of their incandescent energy of thinking and creating, the blaze of consciousness that has been inscribed upon those pages.”[34]
Mark Doty, The Art Of Description, p. 34.

“A book is a dream that you hold in your hands.”
– Neil Gaiman

It sure seems summers has been flying by at warp speed doesn’t?  Hope everyone is enjoying summer for what it’s worth.

Been extremely busy lately myself and it seems some personal circumstances continue non-stop irrespective of how much focus is placed on them.  It matters now, though!  We are here for books, and books are here for us.  What follows are some of the books purchased in the latest June Book haul.  Enjoy.

Henry David Thoreau (Library Of America Ed.) by Henry David Thoreau

This phenomenal book that contains Henry David Thoreau’s A Week On The Concord & Merrimack Rivers, Walden, The Main Woods and Cape Cod, is arguably one of my favorite books this year, not only for content, which we could all learn from, but for the quality of the book.  Look forward on getting more of the Library Of America book series as they are very high quality hardcover books with great information.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Had never read this book (I know, blasphemy!) now I have.  It has become one of my all time favorites books (dystopian or otherwise), especially given how society is currently mimicking many of the disturbing elements noted in the book.

The Smear – How Shady Political Operatives Control & Fake News Control What You See, What You Think How You Vote by Sharyl Attkisson

A book that the establishment doesn’t want you to read: what’s not to love about that?

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

The Fountainhead was a phenomenal book by Rand that I thoroughly enjoyed, and I do not expect any less from this book.  How her books function at multiple levels of intellectual thought blows away most fiction that’s out there by a wide margin.   For individuals wishing to read about issues that matter that are woven within fiction (or even nonfiction), Rand set the bar high.

The Complete Patriot’s Guide To Oligarchical Collectivism by Ethan Indigo Smith

This book aims to wake individuals to the perils of collectivism, brought about with wide-ranging examples that even include samplings from George Orwell’s 1984.  It is a very underrated book rarely if ever talked about, even in alternative research circles.

Walden & Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau

Although Walden is included in the Library Of America edition of the Thoreau book above, unfortunately Civil Disobedience was not.  That’s okay since this book cost slightly over $3 and it’s practically priceless in insights.  I love what the book has to offer as well as how sturdy it’s made.

Secret Missions 3: Destination Carcosa by Walter Bosley

Secret Missions 3 is the third installment in Walter Bosley’s incisive and thought-provoking Secret Missions series.  This book is follow up of Secret Missions 1: The Hidden Legacy Of California, and Secret Missions 2: The Lost Expedition Of Sir Richard Francis Burton, both of which were absolutely jaw dropping books in their potential implications and incredibly intriguing reads.  Thankfully, Secret Missions 3: Destination Carcosa is no different, and leaves much for rumination.

Defending Freed Speech by Steve Simpson

This book is a very timely book which surveys the increase of censorship and propaganda against individuals as it sifts through different essays published over the last two decades or so.  Defending Freed Speech is a veritable must-read for any individual who values freedom and is concerned about the searing censorship that continues that is rising and continues unabated.

Mind Is Master – The Complete James Allen Treasury by James Allen

This book is a compendium of the wondrous works of James Allen.  If you’re looking for something inspirational and motivational along the line of the works of Napoleon Hill but more philosophical that focuses on mindset, Mind Is Master might just be for you.  In As A Man Thinketh, not only were Allen’s word just like reading poetry and learning about life, but it felt like being in the presence of someone whose wise beyond their years and is a person of extreme quality and virtue.

LA Requiem by Robert Crais

Always wanted to read some of Crais’ work, and now I have a chance.  A friend suggested I started with this particular volume, which is why I opted to start here rather than the first book of the series.

Anthem by Ayn Rand

Got this book as a gift, and appreciate it very much.  Appreciating the depth and scope in The Fountainhead, and knowing how methodical Rand is with her writing, I am looking forward to this very much.  Much shorter than The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged too!

Full Black by Brad Thor

This book was found in a garage sale – it was like finding a black pearl in a swamp!  Yeah, its fiction, but so what.  Everyone needs to pump the breaks and revamp their engine now and then.  Why not do it with an entertaining thriller?

Defiance: Judgment Day by William Weber

This is the third installment in Weber’s Defiance series, and it delivers just like his previous two books did.

Official Stories – Counter-Arguments For A Culture In Need by Liam Scheff

Scheff’s book is recommended by Jon Rappoport (NoMoreFakeNews.com) in his Power Outside The Matrix tutorial.

I am about a third of the way through, and am finding much substance in the book.  With an unorthodox approach Scheff deconstructs the mainstream narrative in many different ‘official’ stories (9/11, JFK Assassination and so on) and shows there’s much more than the predictable one-dimensional point of view that the mainstream media nigh always brings to each narrative.  How Scheff brings about his analysis with much brio via his prose is also just as refreshing.  A very underrated book to say the least.

The Illuminati – The Secret Society That Hijacked The World by Jim Marrs

The Illuminati,
which was reviewed on TheBreakaway not long ago, sheds light into one of the most intriguing – and often overhyped – Secret Societies.  Marrs is excellent at sticking to verifiably sourced material, which is priceless given that the topic of secret societies is a field with innumerable rabbit holes and fraught with much disinformation, misinformation and downright lies as well.

Churchill & Orwell: The Fight For Freedom by Thomas E. Ricks

This book not only recounts part of the life of Orwell & Churchill, but also essentially juxtaposes some of the core qualities.  A very intriguing read, although a bit dry/slow at times.  Here’s a review of this piece.

Forward The Foundation and Prelude To Foundation by Isaac Asimov

These are the opening salvos to Asimov’s intricate and timeless Foundation Trilogy.  Given that these books were brought about after the original Foundation Trilogy was written, they do an apt job of further enlargening Asimov’s fictional world.  The whole series is a must-read for any hard science fiction fan, especially if you are a fan of the classics.

Your Body’s Many Cries For Water by F. Batmanghelidj M.D.

Your Body’s Many Cries For Water is a fantastic book that takes a very outside-of-the-box view at health in relationship with water.  If you want to know how much harm and disease can manifest your body by merely not drinking enough water, read this.  In fact, this book should be essential reading for everyone given how most people go about dehydrated on a daily basis (myself included).

Beren & Luthien by J.R.R. Tolkien

This is a rather unique book that covers nigh all the aspects of Beren and Luthien, which was collated and brought about by Christopher Tolkien, son of J.R.R. Tolkien.   Please keep in mind however, that If you are intimately familiar with the story by having read previous books that cover aspects of it, this might not be the book for you as most [if not all] of the information might be a rehash.  A must-have for die-hard Tolkien fans however, especially because it finally collates all the data pertaining to Beren and Luthien in one book, rather than it being scattered through various sources.

The First Commandment by Brad Thor

Another garage sale find found for pocket change.  The book is dynamite by the way!

Battlefield America: The War On The American People by John W. Whitehead

In Battlefield America, Constitutional Attorney and President of The Rutherford Institute, John W. Whitehead not only shows overwhelming evidence for the rise of the Police State in the American landscape, but incisively speaks his mind about where America is heading as a nation if the tidal wave of totalitarianism doesn’t cease.  The most sobering book I’ve read all year by far.

For what it’s worth, the books this month were collated from AbeBooks, HalfPriceBooks, the Library, Amazon, Barnes&Nobles and Garage Sales, while some were gifts as well.  I am fortunate to have found some glaring gems for nigh nothing, and am appreciative of the suggestions made by some of you in the department of research.

There’s still much to be done, so that’s all for now.  Did any of you manage to snap up any books in the month of June, or otherwise?  By all means, share your stories below!

Book Review: As A Man Thinketh by James Allen | #SmartReads

AsAManThinketh
TheBreakaway | BreakawayConciousness
Zy Marquiez
July 27, 2017

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are.  I don’t believe in circumstances.  The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and , if they can’t find them, make them.”
– George Bernard Shaw

“Do not wait: the time will never be ‘just right’. Start where you stand, and work whatever tools you may have at your command and better tools will be found as you go along.”
– Napoleon Hill

As A Man Thinketh is the magnificent manifestation of an individual that examines potential when coupled with a sound mindset.  Timeless as it is engaging, this book sheds light into one of the most overlooked truths mankind has ever set his mind up: each of us is individually responsible for our own circumstances.

Keenly observing the truth, Allen consistently contemplates how sound mental faculties and a strong mindset are what are most responsible for the all we achieve in life.  By way of illustration, in Allen’s own words:

“All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is just direct result of his own thoughts.  In a justly ordered universe, where the loss of equipoise would mean total destruction, individual responsibility must be absolute.  A man’s weakness and strength, purity and impurity, are his own, and not another man’s; they are brought about by himself, and not by another; and they can only be altered by himself, never by another.  His condition is also his own, and not another man’s.  His suffering and his happiness are evolved from within.  As he thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains.”[1]

Such are the insightful words of a master at his craft.

As A Man Thinketh is a thorough discourse into the profound implications that the mindset of the individual has for the world around him.  This is one of the most appealing points of the book.  The book examines thoughts in relation to character and purpose, the effect of thought on health and circumstances, and much more.

In fact, particularly of note, Allen elucidates on the power of thought and character:

“Thought and character are one, and as character can only manifest and discover itself through environment and circumstances, the outer condition of a person’s life will always be found to be harmoniously related to his inner state.”[2]

I have found this to be the case in my life, and began noticing it considerably when I began employing mindfulness on a daily basis; I became attentive not only to the environs around me, but also to the direct correlation between my actions and my circumstances, even the ones that I did not like.  This was a crucial point for me to comes to terms with, since the state of my life wasn’t going to change until I began changing in profound ways.  I say this in hope that others realize the profound truths discussed in this book.

Unexpected, and yet alluring, Allen’s words are poetry itself – elegant and incisive, inspiring and highly thought-provoking.  In fact, I was so inspired by Allen’s writing I had to apprise myself of additional work by him.  That prompted me to purchase Mind Is The Master, which features 19 of his works.  This is mentioned for the individuals who already read the book finding it advantageous and are seeking additional information.

Allen’s no-nonsense, down to earth approach is rather inspiring as it is engaging.  Having now read the book, whose insightful words resonate with me quite well, I have grown more centered, better prepared, to tackle daily circumstances in a way that I had not before.  It has quickly become a mainstay in my daily routine of study.

As A Man Thinketh is an discerning and inspirational read in its totality, made all the more relevant by the fact that science is beginning to bear this out, as books like The Intention Experiment and others have ascertained.  If you are looking for an author that ruminates at length about the keen power of the individual mind and its power to create, look no further. Complement this book with Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind, by Shunryu Suzuki, and Maximum Achievement by Brian Tracy, and one has not only the foundation to live a mindful life, but the veritable recipe for success and growth for any individual.
