Your mind is a divine laboratory.

Your mind of light and life, of hope and power. Your mind! Think of it! That is why I am writing this little book for you. That you may find yourself in the laboratory of your mind.

No matter about present conditions, environment, obligations. There is no excuse, tho your mind be over-charged with material things, or surfeited with pleasures, or if thru careless abandon and neglect it is over-grown with desolate weeds of thought, or even choked with narrow conceptions and base fallacies, YOU CAN RESTORE THE FORCES OF YOUR MIND. You can unfetter it from weak habits of thought. You can arouse the fires of your mind. You can stand amid the outrage of eternal things. You can hurl your mental thunderbolts into a maddened world, check its fury, sooth its passion enflamed soul and redeem its crushed ideals. From the laboratory of your mind you can bind up the wounded. You can speak those heaven-born thoughts which shall illumine with hope, restore with power, comfort with courage and inspire with love the world's aching heart. Then you shall know the height, the depth and the fulness of LIFE, JOY AND PEACE.
SUPREME FORCE OF JOY THOUGHT
Joy thought is power. To become strong, think gladsome thoughts. All thinking is mind action. You do one of two things, you think positive thoughts, which give you strength, or you think negative thoughts which weaken you. Character is positive thought. The best in you comes thru the spirit of joy created by positive thought. The key word of personal power is joy. The spirit of joy wins the world. Joy is delight of mind. It assures good. It inspires action. It encourages achievement. It heals the body, relaxes into happy co-ordination the mental processes. "A MERRY HEART DOETH GOOD LIKE MEDICINE." a merry heart goes all the far distance, the sad heart tires at the first mile. What is the first thing to do when trouble smites you? Think joyfully. Be glad you are alive. Be glad you have your mind and will left. That's enough. "Make a joyful noise." Keep it up. Be glad things are no worse. Like Mrs. Joy, when she ran against her china cabinet and broke several pieces, she exclaimed, "O how thankful I am!" A grouch overheard her, and asked, "Thankful for what?" "O," she says, "That I did not tip the cabinet over and smash them all." That's lit. You can do it. Be glad for something. Right away the trouble will begin to disappear. "Rejoice with exceeding joy." Try it. Not in a weak, sickly, half-hearted way, but with all your heart, might, mind and strength. Make it a six-cylinder pace. "Joy cometh with the morning." Certainly it will. Fill your mind with glad thoughts, grateful thoughts, kindly thoughts, happy thoughts, then fall asleep with your window half-sash open, you will awaken a new person, clothed with new power and your day will be one of victory over desperate conditions and disappointing circumstances. You will be a King, or a Queen, in regal command over the affairs of your day of life. On rising take ten deep breaths, then say this: "This sudden event shall not disturb, distract, nor dishearten me. I am greater than anything that has, or may happen. I shall be led, strengthened and given wisdom to do the right thing." You will become invincible. Put resolution, determination, courage, gladness and joy into your thoughts and you will have a force unconquerable.
JOY THOUGHT MASTERY OF SELF-CONSCIOUSNESS:
thinking is the surest, quickest cure for self-consciousness.
Self-consciousness is standing in your own way. It is

Your feet seem bigger than the foot of a mountain, your arms like a

thinking poisons the system. It releases toxins that
immediately arrest the
normal functions of the body. "Sing for joy of heart. Praise with
lips." You'll get well. Nervous troubles arise from toxemia of wrong
thinking. You can talk angrily, hatefully, bitterly to your
pet dog and he
will go and drown himself. You can hold a perfectly well cat and talk
stuff, moan and groan and the cat will become sick. A lady in
JOY THINKING FOR HAPPINESS:

is right thinking. Think of life, use life joyfully and you
will become happy.
Stop all envy, jealousy, self-seeking. They can get you
nothing. Free your
mind of them by joy thinking. You cannot become happy looking
with a microscope of self-pity. Joy thinking will make you greater than
condition, disappointment or illness in this world. Joy is health,
is disease. Joy sings at its work. Joy opens the mind to light and
is it done? By using your tact. Turn situations to your favor. Tact

JOY THOUGHT FOR HARMONY:
Harmony is created from within. Harmony is the same in subject or king. "It is heaven breathing thru every member of the whole, one common blessing, as one common soul." Harmony is rythmic joy thinking. Start now. Do a little rythmic joy thinking daily. Harmony arises from enjoyment of yourself. You cannot enjoy others or the world, until you are able to enjoy yourself. If your mind is restless, turbulent, discordant, you will see those elements in everything and everybody. It is a fine art to enjoy one's self all day. Try it. If you get thru half a day, you are on the road to harmony with the entire world. Harmony cannot be confined, you must give it out. It's here, it's there, it's everywhere. People traverse the universe for harmony, when all the time, it's throbbing under their own vest. Harmony is earning what you eat and wear. It is deserving what you enjoy. It is envying no one. It is peace from all strife. It is joy over other people's good. It is bearing your own burden with a spirit of joy. Harmony is a sound, sane, selfless force of mind. In all the Bible you do not find the word harmony, because it is "Peace that passeth all understanding." It is ruling your own spirit. The control of your own mind. It is doing good for the joy of the doing. It is taking life not too seriously. Be hopeful. Though some millionaire tells you he started in life a barefoot boy, remember you were not born with shoes on. Harmony is right thinking. Harmony is the product of active goodness. True harmony is the joy of doing good.
