The Power of Thought Print E-mail

Introduction

It gives me great pleasure to be able to speak to you on the important subject of The Power of Thought.

We are astonished at all the wonderful machinery of this modern scientific age whereby human labour is saved, time is economized and distance is shattered.

We also know that the absence of Mindfulness results in the occurrence of these unfortunate lapses and slips, these accidental errors and emissions which form a fairly frequent disturbing feature in life.

Is there no cure for this ? Has no one prescribed a remedy for this?
