“In its theme that “mind is the master weaver”, creating our inner character and outer circumstances, As A Man Thinketh is an in-depth exploration of the central idea of self-empowerment writing.

James Allen’s contribution was to take an assumption we all share – that because we are human we therefore control our thoughts – and reveal its fallacy.  Because most of us believe that mind is separate from matter, we think that thoughts can be hidden and made powerless – this allows us to think one way and act another.  But in downloading your free copy of As A Man Thinketh you will find that Allen believed that the unconscious mind generates as much action as the conscious mind, and while we may be able to sustain the illusion of control through the conscious mind alone, in actuality we are continually faced with a question, ‘Why cannot I make myself do this or achieve that?  In noting that desire and will are sabotaged by the presence of thoughts that do not align with the desire, Allen was led to that startling conclusion that, ‘We do not attract what we want but what we are.’  Achievement happens because you as a person embody the external achievement; you don’t get success but become it.  There is no gap between mind and matter.

“We do not attract what we want but what we are.”
