Reading for February

I finished my book for this month. As a Man thinketh by James Allen. He is a writer from the 1800. I liked it very much, so much that for March, i will read his other book. "The path to prosperity". It is very short read too.Ma petite fee made me a painting....
Here is a chapter i really liked :

Humanity cannot forget it's dreamers; it cannot let their ideals fade and die; it lives in them; it knows them as the realities which it shall one day see and know.

Composer, sculptor, painter, poet, prophet, sage, these are the makers of the afterworld, the architects of heaven. The world is beautiful because they have lived; without them, laboring humanity would perish.

He who cherishes a beautiful vision, a lofty ideal in his heart, will one day realize it.

Columbus cherished a vision of another world, and he discovered it; Copernicus fostered the vision of a multiplicity of worlds, and he revealed it; Buddha beheld the vision of a spiritual world of stainless beauty and perfect peace, and he entered into it.

Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts for out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these, if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be build.

To desire is to obtain; to aspire is to achieve.
How beautiful is that...Pure truth...I don't know how to call it...Spiritual... Philosophies...Laws of human nature... psychologies...Surely, Pure delight.

...that chapter sounds VERY inspiring, I LOVE the parts that speak on destiny and believing in your dreams.....I think I'm going to dream all day, it'll definitely take my mind off the 10 inches of snow that's in the making. We're already at 4 inches....mannnnnnn ha. And there's only 8 weeks until Spring.......I'll be watching closely.

Completely agree. That is so true. These are simple things that we often get to read or hear but when do we actually feel them?

Love your blog!
