XXV. - A Parting Word - 126

Theory, advice, instruction, are comparatively worthless without he who seeks shall use that which he finds. This book has that value for you which you shall determine.

To read and then lay it aside, no matter how much you enjoy it; no matter how much you find in it to admire; will benefit you little. To be of benefit you must adopt the Truth you find here, as the method of living. You must practice it. Demonstration alone is Possession.

Select your season and make sacred promise to yourself that you will keep it as carefully with yourself as if you made it to your dearest friend. When that season comes, be it five minutes, or be it an hour, retire to your ordinary place of relaxing and in your ordinary way of keeping this tryst, keep it --- Relax --- Concentrate --- think.

Keep this up. It will soon become your custom so to retire into the "closet of meditation" whenever any question arises. There you will listen to the "still small voice" which the prophet heard, and as he was led, you will be: "He leadeth me!" will become your constant Affirmation.

I have done all I may. I have told you how I, how many others, have found the way. I have pointed out the road. Now I leave you with the only direction possible for traveling it. Practice! Through practice you will enter the Silence where by Telepathy we shall often meet.

Your friend,

Henry Harrison Brown. "Now" Folk Mountain Home',
