James Allen

James Allen (1864-1912) was an Englishman who retired from the business world to pursue a lifestyle of writing and contemplation. His books are classics in the fields of inspiration and spirituality. Although best known for As a Man Thinketh, he authored several other books that deal with the power of thought including THE PATH OF PROSPERITY, EIGHT PILLARS OF PROSPERITY and James Allen's BOOK OF MEDITATION FOR EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR. Allen's books illustrate the use of the power of thought to increase personal capabilities. Although he never achieved great fame or wealth, his works continue to influence people around the world, including the New Thought movement.Photo from Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository.

As a Man Thinketh (The Tarcher Family Inspirational Library)

The mind guides our footsteps as we progress along the pathway of life.

Purity of mind leads inevitably to purity of life, to the precious love and understanding that should control our everyday acts and attitudes towards friends and foes.

But where must one look for guidance? How does one achieve purity of mind that alone brings happiness and confidence?

The author offers his clear answers in this book As A Man Thinketh. His words have helped millions for more than a century--and they continue to point the true way to a better life for a troubled humanity.

"Out of a clean heart comes a clean life and a clean body," James Allen writes. "out of a defiled mind proceeds a defiled life and a corrupt body."

Too many mortals strive to improve only their wordly position--and too few seek spiritual betterment. Such is the problem James Allen faced in his own time. The ideas he found in his inner-most heart after great searching guided him as they will guide you.

Como un hombre piensa, así es su vida. (Spanish Edition)

Como el Hombre Piensa, Así es su Vida. Esa frase de Proverbios 23:7 da título a este clásico de James Allen, que nos dice que nuestra vida es el resultado de nuestros pensamientos. Somos los únicos responsables de alcanzar las cimas más altas de este mundo, o de descender a los abismos. Si pensamos en éxito y prosperidad, eso es lo que obtenemos. Pero si nos dejamos contaminar por las semillas del fracaso... James Allen fue parte del movimiento del nuevo pensamiento, y junto a William Walker Atkinson, Wallace Wattles, Orison Swett Marden, y otros, pusieron las bases de la literatura de Autoayuda y Superación, e inspiraron a todos los demás autores del siglo 20, y siguen inspirando a los del siglo 21, pues su sabiduría simplemente no pasa de moda: su mensaje es a prueba del paso del tiempo. Esta versión es una traducción fiel por el reconocido autor de libros de negocios y autoayuda Mauricio Chaves Mesén.

Byways of Blessedness

The classic James Allen book on simple steps to take in everyday life that will lead to happiness and productivity. In this edition, the British spellings have been Americanized, annotations of poetic verses and Bible verses have been added, and several corrections of spelling and punctuation have been made.

An excerpt from the book:

Life is full of beginnings. They are presented every day and every hour to every person. Most beginnings are small, and appear trivial and insignificant, but in reality they are the most important things in life.
See how in the material world everything proceeds from small beginnings. The mightiest river is at first a rivulet over which the grasshopper could leap; the great flood commences with a few drops of rain; the sturdy oak, which has endured the storms of a thousand winters, was once an acorn; and the smoldering match, carelessly dropped, may be the means of devastating a whole town by fire.
Consider, also, how in the spiritual world the greatest things proceed from smallest beginnings. A light fancy may be the inception of a wonderful invention or an immortal work of art; a spoken sentence may turn the tide of history; a pure thought entertained may lead to the exercise of a world-wide regenerative power; and a momentary animal impulse may lead to the darkest crime.
A beginning is a cause, and as such it must be followed by an effect, or a train of effects, and the effect will always be of the same nature as the cause. You can, by careful thought, avoid wrong beginnings and make right beginnings, and so enjoy good results.

As You Think: Second Edition

In 1904, a little-known Englishman named James Allen wrote a small book called As a Man Thinketh. A hundred years later, this book has become a self-empowerment classic. New World Library author and publisher Marc Allen updated this timeless gem, recasting obsolete language and polishing the author's message to highlight the universal principles of the original. James Allen's message has now reached a whole new generation of readers with As You Think. Great truths are simple and easy to express, and James Allen's insights into self-empowerment are just that: Personal power lies within the mind. Once awakened, there are no limits to what one can imagine and then achieve with the power of thought. The author shares deep insights into the essential relationship of a person's thoughts to personal character, life circumstances, physical health, life purpose, achievement, and personal serenity. As You Think is a simple yet powerful reminder that "all we achieve and all that we fail to achieve is the direct result of our own thoughts." We are the masters of our destinies.

Byways of blessedness: By James Allen

Along the highways of Burma there is placed, at regular distances away from the dust of the road, and under the cool shade of a group of trees, a small wooden building called a “rest-house”, where the weary traveller may rest a while, and allay his thirst and assuage his hunger and fatigue by partaking of the food and water which the kindly inhabitants place there as a religious duty. Along the great highway of life there are such resting places; away from the heat of passion and the dust of disappointment, under the cool and refreshing shade of lowly Wisdom, are the humble, unimposing “rest-houses” of peace, and the little, almost unnoticed, byways of blessedness, where alone the weary and footsore can find strength and healing.
