James Allen was one of the World's great spiritual writers, though he lived 100 years ago, his insight into the inner desires of the soul and the effect of thought on the world we encounter has been an inspiration and motivation for countless writers and commentators for a century. In All These Things Added, Allen contents that every soul hungers for righteousness - but only by eliminating the selfishness and darkness in our soul can we truly enter this Kingdom of God. In order to eradicate selfishness, Allen states, it must first be recognized. This is a wonderfully written book that is a collection of 14 of his inspirational essay, and one that will have a profound effect on those that allow the truths within to guide them to Heaven In The Heart. It has stood the test of time and is still as relevant as it was when it was first publish in 1910.
About the Author
James Allen was born on 28th November 1864 in Leicester, England. He was a philosophical writer known for his inspirational books and poetry. At the age of 15 his father, a businessman, was robbed and murdered so he had to leave school to work full-time in several British manufacturing firms to help support the family. At the age of 38 he retired from employment to become a full time writer. Allen - together with his wife Lily and their daughter, Nohra - moved to a small cottage in Ilfracombe, Devon, England to pursue a simple life of contemplation. There he wrote for nine years, producing 19 works. He also edited and published a magazine, "The Light of Reason". His most famous book, As a Man Thinketh, is now considered an all time classic self-help book. Its underlying message is that noble thoughts make a noble person, while lowly thoughts make a miserable person. Allen died in 1912 at the age of 47.
"I expect to pass through life but once.
If therefore, there be any kindness I can show,
or any good thing I can do for any fellow being,
let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again"
~ Stephen Grellet
"Faith and Fear Share The Same Definition.
Believing that what you cannot see will surely come to pass.
Faith Attracts The Positive while fear attracts the negative."
