Emmet Fox E-Zine


Emmet Fox wrote, "There are many changes going on in the world today and, in general,
this is a good thing. Without changes there could be no progress. Of course, not
all change in itself is good, but when things are changing it means sooner or later,
good will emerge from the cross currents of ideas and policies which change brings
about. Now, if events seem to be changing too rapidly for you to cope with, remember
there is one thing that never changes, and that is Spirit or God. God is the eternal,
loving father who is always ready to say, "fear not child, for all is thine." When
your ship is being tossed about by the storms of change, remember that God is your
Anchor. No matter what the outer world may be doing, your inner world can be peaceful
and calm because God is never failing in His power and Love"
For I am the Lord, I change not (Malachi 3:6).
This was among the last essays written by Dr. Fox, before his transition.


I see God manifest in all things. I am an instrument of the Divine Presence. I
now release this inner peace; it flows through my entire being releasing and dissolving
all problems; this is the peace that passeth understanding.
Joseph Murphy

Training the Habit-Mind - William Walker Atkinson

PROFESSOR William James, the well-known teacher of, and writer of Psychology very
truly says: 
"The great thing in all education is to make our nervous system our ally instead
of our enemy. For this we must make automatic and habitual, as early as possible,
as many useful actions as we can and as carefully guard against growing into ways
that are likely to be disadvantageous. In the acquisition of a new habit, or the
leaving off of an old one we must take care to launch ourselves with as strong
and decided initiative as possible. Never suffer an exception to occur until the
new habit is securely rooted in your life. Seize the very first possible opportunity
to act on every resolution you make and on every emotional prompting you may experience,
in the direction of the habits you aspire to gain."

This advice is along the lines familiar to all students of Mental Science, but it
states the matter more plainly than the majority of us have done. It impresses upon
us the importance of passing on to the subconscious mind the proper impulses, so
that they will become automatic and "second nature." Our subconscious mentality
is a great storehouse for all sorts of suggestions from ourselves and others and,
as it is the "habit-mind," we must be careful to send it the proper material from
which it may make habits. If we get into the habit of doing certain things, we may
be sure that the subconscious mentality will make it easier for us to do just the
same thing over and over again, easier each time, until finally we are firmly bound
with the ropes and chains of the habit, and find it more or less difficult, sometimes
almost impossible, to free ourselves from the hateful thing.

We should cultivate good habits against the hour of need. The time will come when
we will be required to put forth our best efforts, and it rests with us today whether
that hour of need shall find us doing the proper thing automatically and almost
without thought, or struggling to do it bound down and hindered with the chains
of things opposed to that which we desire at that moment. We must be on guard at
all times to prevent the forming of undesirable habits. There may be no special
harm in doing a certain thing today, or perhaps again tomorrow, but there may be
much harm in setting up the habit of of doing that particular thing. If you are
confronted with the question: "Which of these two things should I do?" the best
answer is: "I will do that which I would like to become a habit with me. In forming
a new habit, or in breaking an old one, we should throw ourselves into the task
with as much enthusiasm as possible, in order to gain the most ground before the
energy expends itself when it meets with friction from the opposing habits already

We should start in by making as strong an impression as possible upon the subconscious
mentality. Then we should be constantly on guard against temptations to break the
new resolution "just this once." This "just once" idea kills off more good resolutions
than any other one cause. The moment you yield "just this once, you introduce the
thin edge of the wedge that will, in the end, split your resolution into pieces.

Equally important is the fact that each time you resist temptation the stronger
does your resolution become. Act upon your resolution as early and as often as possible,
as with every manifestation of thought in action, the stronger does it become. You
are adding to the strength of your original resolution every time you back it up
with action. The mind has been likened to a piece of paper that has been folded.
Ever afterwards it has a tendency to fold in the same crease - unless we make a
new crease or fold, when it will follow the last lines. And the creases are habits
- every time we make one it is so much easier for the mind to fold along the same
crease afterward. Let us make our mental creases in the right direction.

Nothing Can Retard Your Progress Frank B. Whitney

Think of yourself as always going forward. Realize each day that you are nearer your goal and your ideal than you were the day before. Know that within you lies the power to progress. Nothing in all this world can keep you from advancing when you know this truth. There are many things that persons think can keep them back. They hold many limiting thoughts concerning themselves. All these thoughts can be summarized in the belief that other persons or things can retard their progress. Many persons lack the consciousness that they have within themselves the power to progress and to succeed. All of us have heard individuals confess that they could not go forward in their work because other persons or things held them back. Sometimes the explanations and excuses given have seemed almost too trivial for consideration; yet we have heard such confessions made at a time when the inner thoughts and the sub consciousness of the individual were plainly revealed. We have known persons to give some reason why they could not succeed or progress that seemed almost ludicrous. Discipline yourself to think of yourself as without limitations. You were not created by God and placed in this world to be held down by the limited thoughts of others. You were created free, independent of the limited beliefs of other persons. There is but one thing that can hold you back: YOUR own limited ideas about yourself. Nothing in all this universe can retard your progress. No person, thing, or circumstance can keep you from reaching your goal and the fulfillment of your ideal when you realize your freedom from limitations. Many, many persons in the world are living unhappy, thwarted, unsatisfied lives because they think they cannot do what they want to do. They despair of reaching the goal that looks so attainable except for the limited thought they hold over themselves. They live in a state of self-hypnosis, hypnotized by their own thoughts of limitation. Nothing can defeat you when you find within yourself the capacity to succeed and progress. In the past you have possibly given much thought to the world about you. You have been led to believe that you were influenced by it and subject to it. In the new understanding you will come to see things reversed. You will find the Spirit of God within you and discover that things of the world are subject to you through Him. No longer be shackled by self-hypnosis. No longer miss the joy of attaining your goal because of foolish beliefs. You have within you the power to succeed. You have the power to go forward regardless of what obstacles may seem to appear on your path. Within you is God power. Go forward. (Unity's "Daily Word" magazine was the brainchild of Frank B. Whitney)
