This essay upon the Dollar appeared in NOW as one of a series of twelve lessons entitled, " Success and how I won it through Affirmation." It attracted much attention and drew out from its readers many letters. This appreciation has decided "NOW" Folk to reprint it in form for a wider circulation.
This well conserves the purpose for which it was written. I wish to awaken my fellows to a sense of their present possessions and help them to a realization of the Principle which controls Life's expression so that, living being to them "A fine art,'' they will cease to look for happiness in some far-off heaven, but will enter into the enjoyment of the one they create here and now.
It is believed that this little monograph is the first utterance of the thought that each individual has the ability to so radiate his mental forces that he can cause the Dollar to feel him, love him, seek him and thus draw, at will, all things needed for his unfoldment from the Universal Supply.
It will help you to rise above the drudgery of enforced labor and enable you to enter upon the manifold expressions of life with the joy and spontaneity of childhood. This is the thought which comes to you with this, my Lesson of Success.
Henry Harrison Brown.
San Francisco, Cal., May 1, 1903.
THE DOLLAR SIDE
You conquer fate by thought. If you think the fatal thought of men and institutions, you need never pull the trigger. The consequences of thinking inevitably follow.— Carlyle.
Personal ideals, of necessity, must differ, yet, since money represents objective power, its consideration must enter as a factor into every ideal of success. Money represents Supply. It stands in our thought, for food, clothing and shelter; for books, pictures and companionship; for enjoyment, unfoldment and expression.
The Dollar means opportunity for the realization of high ideals.
Material Supply is a necessity of Life. The Dollar is the concrete representative of this necessity.
The individual must be free and, until the necessities of life are assured, he is not free. Thus the Dollar stands for individual liberty.
Personal liberty finds its basis in pecuniary independence. Financial independence and personal liberty bear very largely the relation of cause and effect. We can almost say that in the popular mind the Dollar confers liberty. In Soul Culture, a mental attitude of superiority to the Dollar results in personal liberty. There is no liberty to him who feels himself limited by the want of the Dollar. Debt is one of the most tyrannical of masters. Mackay well says: —
"The debtor is ever a shame faced dog With his creditor's name on his collar."
There can be no liberty to him who feels the slavery of debt.
Into your ideal of Success, therefore, there must be firmly builded this ideal of pecuniary independence.
This independence does not lie in freedom from debt, neither does it lie in large bank accounts nor the possession of property. Monetary success and personal liberty do not go hand in hand. Indeed the average man of wealth is the veriest slave, enslaved to the necessities that his monetary possessions involve, and a worse slave to his fears.
SUCCESS LIES IN THE MENTAL ATTITUDE THAT ARISES FROM THAT SENSE OF PERSONAL POWER WHICH MEETS EVERY CONDITION WITHOUT ANXIETY. "Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof,' is the thought of the successful man while he enjoys present good.
That cannot be called success which results in ill health and unhappiness, unrest or fear. Eliminate these from your ideal and you have, as a necessity concomitant of success, financial ease.
In the old competitive thought, men sought business and wanted the dollar. Under the New Thought, it is: "Seek first the kingdom of Good and its right living and all things necessary to my happiness will be added to me. " The Soul has only to manifest its drawing power. When the conscious mind lets itself be led or drawn, it will be drawn to what it desires. Desire is the magnet. Let it have its way. Trust in your own Love of Truth and Love of Goodness and never question. That you desire it, is enough. That you desire it, is evidence that it already exists for you on the Soul-side. Be passive to the desire and LET it manifest. This attitude is itself Success and leads to this attitude towards things.
Affirm: THINGS BELONG TO ME. I AM ALREADY POSSESSOR. THEY WILL COME TO ME AT NEED. Then LET them come. If they are not, do not waste time trying for them. Having accepted Truth that ALL IS YOURS and that ALL DESIRED CONDITIONS or THINGS WILL MANIFEST, never think more of them. LET them come. All looking for things to come evidences that you have not claimed them as realities, but have held them as dreams or possibilities. Until you hold them as realities, they cannot come, unless you give up Thought-drawing and go back to the old competitive struggle, then they may be grasped.
Change your attitude toward business. Do not seek it. SEE IT ALREADY YOURS and LET it come. Attend yourself to details as they come to the surface. Consider business a Principle that will run, as runs a mountain stream, when you remove your conscious will from it. All your concern is to be ready to use it as the ranchman uses the water as it comes to his ditch.
Business is a manifestation of the One Power. Use the Power as the telegrapher uses: LET it come and you direct it. The wisdom for the day comes with the day. LET it come by faith in Self. Work each moment as if it were here and it IS here.
In regard to money, regard it also as merely the power that keeps business going. Welcome its coming and rejoice at its going. It never does its work until, like water in the stream, it has passed under the wheel.
YOU alone are the Power. Money has only delegated Power. You direct its expression. Change your attitude toward money. It is not "the almighty dollar.'' Almighty Power uses the dollar. Say to the dollar, "I do not need you. You need me. You are of no use until my brain and hand use you. You wish to be used. You come to me that you may be used. I do not need a dollar. Dollars need me. " Assume this mental attitude and see what a change it makes for you. When you have changed your aura, dollars will be drawn and you need not think of their coming. Only think of using them.
Change your attitude toward the dollars you have. Tell them they are of no use until they are expended. As you see them lying about, say to them:— "Idle dollars, go to work. Go out and circulate about. Each one of you go and pay a million in wages and debts. When I need you, come back again. You are useless and have no value until you go to work. Then LET them go to work, knowing that, when you send this thought with them, they or their fellows will come to you to be set at work.
Before you spend a dollar, the question comes, "Is it right?" Whether you have a single dollar, or behind the one you think of spending are a million, makes no difference. If it is right to spend the dollar in the proposed way, had you the million, it is right thus to spend it when it is the lone one. Therefore, when you feel it is right to spend a dollar for any purpose, spend it as royally as if you were a millionaire. From the Inner Life, this message was given to me years ago: "Let a thought of use stand guard over your purse and then spend freely.'' Amend this by affirming: "A thought of the righteousness of the spending stands guard over my dollars and I send them forth with blessing." These dollars, like every thought of good you send out, will return to bless, for you do business with thoughts only; dollars are but materialized thoughts. Each dollar in any man's hand represents his thought in material form. Send out at all times with year dollars the thoughts you wish to return to you, for what you sow in your dollars, you reap in dollars that either do, or do not, come back to you. Put the thought of Success, Happiness and Health into every dollar that passes out and it will return so laden.
