The secret of achieving prosperity lies in so vividly keeping yourself centered in the inner focus of affluence that you literally exude the consciousness of it.
The great piano virtuoso Paderewski was once playing before an audience of the rich and the royal. After a brilliant performance, an elegant lady waxed ecstatic over the great artist. She said, "Ah Maestro, you are a genius!" Paderewski tartly replied, "Ah yes, madam, but before I was a genius I was a clod!" What he was saying was that his present acclaim was not handed to him on a silver platter. He, too, was once a little boy laboriously practicing his scales. And even at his peak, behind every brilliant performance there were countless hours of practice and preparation.
On human levels of consciousness one may emphasize getting and having as the prime goals, in spiritual consciousness he seeks the way of giving and being.
The whole Universe is on your side. Life is forever biased on the side of healing, on the side of overcoming, on the side of success. When you get yourself centered in the Universal flow you become synchronized with this divine bias for good.
One of the best things to do sometimes is simply to be.
Behind every brilliant performance there were countless hours of practice and preparation.
Your true image is not something to get; it is a reality to discover.
Why be an average person? All the great achievements of history have been made by strong individuals who refused to consult statistics or to listen to those who could prove convincingly that what they wanted to do, and in fact ultimately did do, was completely impossible.
Our job is not to set things right but to see them right.
You were born to achieve, to release your inner power, to fulfill your uniqueness.
Things may happen around you, and things may happen to you, but the only things that matter are the things that happen in you.
The ideal is not believing in, but believing from.
The genius does not differ from others in their access to the light within, only in their confident acceptance of its natural outstreaming.
Faith simply tunes into and turns on the divine flow that has always been present.
God is the transcendent whole of things of which you are an individualized part.
As the Quakers say, "When you pray, move your feet."
While many people are trying to be in tune with infinite, what they really are is in tune with the indefinite.
God can only do for you what He can do through you.
The thing I fear comes upon me
When your mind is functioning correctly, there is an out streaming of light from within in the form of inspiration, hunches, leadings, and intuitive flashes – trust this process of inspiration. “In the twinkling of an eye” ideas and plans may flow into your mind.
Affluence = abundant flow.
You can have all you can expect and accept.
A committed giver is an incurably happy person, a secure person, a satisfied person, and a prosperous person.

Missing the mark is one of the ways in which we learn to hit the target.
We have been taught to keep the commandments, and we have kept them all too well. We have enshrined them like religious relics in sealed containers on the altar. Thus, it could be said that one lives by the commandments in much the same way as many persons live by a neighbor, never learning his name, let alone having any understanding communication with him.
Prosperity is not just having things. It is the consciousness that attracts the things. Prosperity is a way of living and thinking, and not just having money or things. Poverty is a way of living and thinking, and not just a lack of money or things.
The goal should not be to make money or acquire things, but to achieve the consciousness through which the substance will flow forth when and as you need it.
Faith is expectancy. You do not receive what you want; you do not receive what you pray for, not even what you say you have faith in. You will always receive what you actually expect.

I am not what I think. I am thinking what I think.
Evil, and evil spirits, devils and devil possession, are the outgrowth of man’s inadequate consciousness of God. We must avoid thinking of evil as a thing in itself-a force that works against man or, against God, if you will.
Your fortune is not something to find but to unfold.
Don’t go through life, grow though life
