How to Live a Magical Life | New Thought Podcasts

Welcome to the Inspirational Living podcast, brought to you in part by Book of Zen, makers of inspirational fashion and gift ideas. Visit them online at Today’s podcast has been edited and adapted from Concentration: The Key to Constructive Thought by C. W. Kyle, published in 1910.

The supreme lesson of life is that of self-realization. You are living in a world of magic. You have more power within you than that of any wizard whom you have read or dreamed about. Wake up! Learn who you are before you condemn yourself to a further life of inaction and inefficiency. To come to recognize yourself is the best elixir of life you will ever know.

It will take a psychological operation to rid you of your self-imposed limitations. Well, here it is. Words have a magic power. The greatest event that infinite intelligence has made was manifested by the power of the Word. “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.”

You have made yourself just what you are, and you have the power to change yourself into a being greater and more powerful than it is possible for you to conceive. You are possessed of unlimited powers. And if limited you now are, you, yourself, have raised the walls of limitation, and you have the power to remove them or let them stand.

You are ruler of your own kingdom. When you come to know yourself as you are, the very splendid powers which are yours will awaken in you such respect for them that you will feel called upon to live at your very best, at all times, in order to be worthy of the high dignity of your position in life. This knowledge will put new blood in your veins and a song of joy in your heart.

Your whole being will be filled and thrilled with a sense of being so much greater than that you have ever felt before, that no thought of fear or failure will ever again find lodging in your mind. Love and faith and courage will shine out in your every word and act. The light of kindly determination will fill your eyes, and you will be fired with an enthusiasm that will render you invincible—where before you were faltering and filled with indecision.

I wish above all else to introduce you to yourself — the real individual that you are, and have you see yourself as you were made: in the image of the divine, endowed with its every attribute, and in actual possession of all the tools to make yourself greater than any conception of greatness that has ever entered into the heart of humanity.

Don’t refuse the offer of this acquaintanceship, for the one great thing that men and women lack upon this planet, the one thing which we stand in direst need if, is nothing more or less than a more intimate and thorough acquaintanceship with our true selves.

If you will cultivate this acquaintanceship, and be guided by its advice, whatever good you may desire will come to you. Concentration will enable you to further this acquaintanceship as nothing else can. If you are living a life short of the realization of your best desires, you should come to yourself and know that “the kingdom of God is within you,” and that if you will only concentrate upon it earnestly enough, and long enough, you shall (here and now) come into possession of and enjoy every good your heart may desire.

Health, wealth, honor, power, station, peace, and love are awaiting the exercise of the power that you possess, in order to be and abide with you, just so long as you may will them to remain. When you come to know that you are a being of power, intelligence, and love; that you are master of your own thoughts, and that you have access to the Source of Infinite Life, your thoughts take on a splendor and beauty which finds their expression in the living of every moment at its best.
