Morning Meditation for June 15, 2017 – James Allen


When a man’s soul is clouded with selfishness in any or every form, he loses the power of spiritual discrimination and confuses the temporal with the eternal.

Men cling to and gratify the flesh as though it were going to last forever, and though they try to forget the nearness and inevitability of its dissolution, the dread of death and of loss of all that they cling to clouds their happiest hours and the chilling shadow of their own selfishness follows them like a remorseless spectre.

And with the accumulation of temporal comforts and luxuries, the divinity within men is drugged, and  they sink deeper and deeper into materiality, into the perishable life of the senses; and where there is sufficient intellect, theories concerning the immortality of the flesh come to be regarded as infallible truths.
