The paths a flowing river take is most often quite defined although sometimes unpredictable. There would be places on studying its gradient you would with certainty agree the river without doubt has to pass there. Others say all places a river passes through are exceptional areas as they are supposed to be rich in both soil and resources.
Most civilisation of the world followed big rivers for instance along the Nile river. You also have the river Thames in London apart from its proximity to the seaports. Does this mean we should all be near big river banks? There is No definite answer but over developed civilisation sought to do that by creating rivers where they did not exist for example the canals throughout the UK. That tells you the importance of living or developing industries near and along river banks.
There is one flowing river in the village where my father came from in Lisungwi, Neno, Malawi which was known to changing its cause every year. I don’t know whether that is the case now. We could go one year and the next year people will show us a new path for the river and where the river passed the previous year which would be dry sand. One could argue perhaps developing a civilisation or industries along such a river would be futile. We need a good research on that.
The quotes this week are from a book that is there ‘given to the world as a means of tapping the great cosmic intelligence and attracting from it that which corresponds to the ambitions, and aspirations of each reader.’ I am sure from the sayings you will learn one or two things. Read these quotations below from the book and enjoy:
THE CHARLES HAANEL MASTER KEY SYSTEM by Charles F. Haanel
“When the creative power of thought is fully understood, its effect will be seen to be marvellous. But such results cannot be secured without proper application, diligence, and concentration……….. The student who learns that power comes from within, that he is weak only because he has depended on help from outside, and who unhesitatingly throws himself on his own thought, instantly rights himself, stands erect, assumes a dominant attitude, and works miracles.”
“Some men seem to attract success, power, wealth, attainment, with very little conscious effort: others conquer with great difficulty; still others fail altogether to reach their ambitions, desires and ideals. Why is this so: Why should some men realize their ambitions easily, others with difficulty, and still others not at all? The cause cannot be physical, else the most perfect men, physically, would be the most successful. The difference, therefore, must be mental – must be in the mind; hence mind must be the creative force, must constitute the sole difference between men. It is mind, therefore, which overcomes environment and every other obstacle in the path of men.”
“The Master Key develops Mental Power which means that others instinctively recognize that you are a person of force, of character – that they want to do what you want them to do; it means that you attract men and things to you; that you are what some people call ‘lucky’, that ‘things’ come your way, that you have come into understanding of the fundamental laws of Nature, and have put yourself in harmony with them; that you are in tune with infinite; that you understand the law of attraction, the natural laws of growth, and the Psychological laws on which all advantages in the social and business world rest.”
“Mental Power is creative power, it gives you the ability to create for yourself; it does not mean the ability to take something away from some one else. Nature never does things that way. Nature makes two blades for grass grow where one grew before, and Mind Power enables men to do the same thing.”
