Emmet Fox E-Zine
Sowing and Reaping Emmet Fox
Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap. There is no such thing as luck. Nothing ever happens by chance. Everything, good
or bad, that comes into your life is there as the result of unvarying, inescapable Law. And the only operator of that law is none other than yourself. No one else
has ever done you any harm of any kind,
or ever could do so, however much it may seem that he did. Consciously or
unconsciously you have yourself at some time
or other produced every condition desirable or undesirable that you find in either your bodily health or your circumstances today. You, and you alone, ordered those
goods; and now they are being delivered. And as long as you go on thinking wrongly about yourself and about life, the same sort of difficulties will continue to harass
you. For every seed must inevitably
bring forth after its own kind, and thought is the seed of destiny. Yet there is
a simple way out of trouble. Learn how to think
rightly instead of wrongly, and conditions at once begin to improve until, sooner or later, all ill health, poverty, and inharmony must disappear. Such is the Law. Life
need not be a battle; it can, and should be a glorious mystical adventure; but living is a science. This is one way of stating the Great Law. Read and re-read it at
regular intervals, and it will inevitably change your outlook on life.

MEDITATION FOR PEACE
God is the only real presence and the only real power. God is fully present at every point of existence. God works through man, who is part of the Divine Expression. God works through all men indiscriminately, and in His sight there are no distinctions of nationality or party, and no frontiers. Therefore there can be no strife. With One God there can be only one plan, God's perfect plan, and all men are part of that; so each has his own place in the Divine Scheme, and there can be no competition or strife. God is all in all, and in Him all men live and move and have their being in perfect harmony and Love.
LET NOTHING DISTURB THEE
FRANK B. WHITNEY
Quite likely you are entertaining the belief that some person or some thing has power to disturb your peace of mind. But is this true? Do you not feel something within you trying to convince you that this is not true? Does not something at the heart of your being tell you that God is all in all? Is it not logical to believe that you came into the world master of conditions and things about you? Does it not seem foolish to believe that God would have created you and placed you in the world to be at its mercy?
"Let nothing disturb thee." Drop from mind any belief that you are entertaining to the contrary. Cease to build up a state of mind in which you give any person or thing power to disturb you. No longer give any thought to the belief that you are a victim of another's unkindness, injustice, or ill will. You are free from all belief that another can disturb you but you must know this truth in order to see it demonstrated in your life.
Your freedom from all belief that persons or things can disturb you must be an active thought in your mind. This active thought must neutralize and annihilate all belief that you have previously entertained that they can disturb you. You. must establish in mind the truth that you are undisturbed.
You should aim to reach that consciousness of life where you are not constantly thinking about what other persons think, say, or do. In the impersonal consciousness, you will not let persons and things disturb you. You will live with God and in the realization that God in the midst of you is the only presence and the only power in Truth. You will come to know that your thought must be upon God at all times. "Alone God sufficeth."
When things seem to disturb you and seem to take your peace of mind from you, let this be a warning that you need to think Truth and direct your thought to God at the heart of your being. You cannot believe in the power of other persons and things when you believe in your own God given power, the power of the presence of God within you.
"Let nothing disturb thee."
THE AMERICAN SPIRIT
America is the land of opportunity. This is an old saying, but it is still as true today as it ever was. An American said to me the other day that, while this statement might have been true at one time, he thought that it was no longer the case. He was wrong, however. The saying is just as true today as it ever was, as I hope to show in this essay. It is true that the western frontier has been closed for more than forty years, but the frontiers of scientific discovery and creative imagination can never be closed. And, as long as a people possesses individual freedom and equality of opportunity, these things will provide careers for all.
America is the land of opportunity. I myself have spent practically all my life in Europe, and so I come to American institutions and American conditions with a fresh mind; and the longer I live in America, the more I realize the substantial freedom that is here. In France and in England there is much political freedom, and there is personal freedom in many ways too-more political freedom in England than in France, and perhaps more personal freedom in France than in England. But, even in these countries, freedom is still limited in many ways unknown to Americans. In all the old countries, owing to their inheritance of the Feudal, System, there are all sorts of invisible barriers to the free expression of the soul of man, which is part of the self-expression of God. These barriers are invisible. If they were visible the people would get angry and tear them down, but they are invisible, and they are nonetheless real for that.
In the United States, as one goes up and down the land and meets all sorts of people, he realizes that these invisible, and often very cruel, barriers do not exist here. I have taken the trouble to study this subject as well as I could. I have been in every state in the Union, and I have talked these things over with every kind of person. I have had the privilege of talking with some of the most distinguished people in America-with prominent statesmen, with some of our leading professional men, and with important industrial executives. I have also talked with working-men-with locomotive engineers, and with soldiers and sailors and policemen. In the course of my travels from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from Canada to Mexico, I have talked with New Englanders, with Southerners from the deep South, and with people from the Middle West. I have talked with cowboys on the plains and with prospectors and miners in the Rockies, and I have been all over California and Texas. I have talked with Negro laborers in the South and with highly educated Negroes in Harlem, and with Indians on the reservation' and I think with almost every kind of person that goes to make up the United States.
As I say, I have had the privilege of discussing just these questions with some very important people, and with many everyday people-the people one strikes up an acquaintance with at hot dog stands by the roadside, in dining wagons, drug stores, and village groceries. And I can be a good listener when I want to, and they have told me, each in his own idiom, what they thought about the things and the ideas that were moving them at the time. And so I think I know something of the conditions of life in the United States today. I think I know something of what I am talking about; and I am constantly struck by two things in this country: The first thing that strikes me is the personal freedom, and the richness of opportunity which is here in normal times. The second thing that strikes me is that most Americans take it all so much for granted, that, in a sense, they appreciate it so little. I know that they do appreciate it, but not, I think, as they should. They say, "How else would it be?" But I tell you that without the Constitution it could be and would be very different, because these conditions are simply not known in any other country. They never have been known anywhere else. Only in the United States is general personal freedom and equality of opportunity an accepted thing. And it is the object of this essay to help people to realize this.
Stake Your Claim
You can have true success and happiness in life if you consistently put these truths into practice in your daily living. It is your God -
given duty to Stake Your Claim to peace, poise,
power, prosperity and health - and God expects you to be satisfied with nothing less. (Herman Wolhorn)
