James Allen was a British poet and writer, known for his highly philosophical and practical books and for being the forerunner of the self-help genre. Allen's works are eminently practical and he never wrote theories. According to his wife Lily, Allen only wrote when he had a message and that message was only conveyed when he had lived it in his own life and knew it was good. This is how he wrote, about facts that had been proven in practice. Another fundamental trait of Allen's was that he believed in the use of the faculty of thought to increase personal capacities and to achieve fame, fortune and happiness. Allen insisted on the power of the individual to shape his own character and create his own happiness; so he shows us how to turn our dreams into realities. He gives us a message of hope even in the midst of turmoil and argues that we become spiritually rich when we discover the adventure within, are aware of the unity of all life, know the power of meditation and experience our kinship with nature. His most famous work, "As a Man Thinketh" (1903), is considered one of the pioneering, classic and best-selling self-help books. Its premise is that noble thoughts make a person noble, while miserable thoughts make a person miserable. Today we are where our thoughts have led us and we are the architects - for better or worse - of our future. This book is part of the New Thought movement, a philosophical movement that emerged in the mid-19th century in the United States. A movement that became increasingly important, spreading throughout the world and producing great writers throughout the 20th century, such as Thomas Troward, William Walker Atkinson, Ralph Waldo Trine, Napoleon Hill, Emmet Fox, Joseph Murphy, Louise H. Hay, Deepak Chopra and Gary Zukav, among others. James Allen has been a source of inspiration for other authors of self-help books.
The literary life of James Allen
As a young man, Allen worked for several years in various British manufacturing companies and moved first to London and then to South Wales.
In 1898 Allen found an occupation in which he could display his spiritual and social interests as a writer for the magazine The Herald of the Golden Age. At this time, Allen entered a creative period in which he published the first of his many books, “From Poverty to Power” (1901). In 1902 Allen began publishing his own spiritual magazine, The Epoch.
It was his third book, “As a Man Thinketh” (1903), that brought him great popularity and enabled him to devote himself full time to being a writer and publisher. Allen had a truly prolific career. Continuing to publish for the Epoch, Allen produced more than a book a year until his death in 1912. There he wrote for nine years, producing 19 works. Among them are some of his best works: "Byways of Blessedness" (1904), " The Way of Peace" (1907), "The Mastery of Destiny" (1909), "Above Life's Turmoil" (1910), “Book of Meditations for Every Day in the Year” (published posthumously in 1913) and "The Divine Companion" (published posthumously in 1919).
James Allen is often referred to as " An unrewarded genius", as he did not receive the recognition he deserved during his lifetime.
The Editor, P.C. 2022
Spiritual meditation is the pathway to Divinity. It is the mystic ladder which reaches from earth to heaven, from error to Truth, from pain to peace. Every saint has climbed it; every sinner must sooner or later come to it, and every weary pilgrim that turns his back upon self and the world, and sets his face resolutely toward the Father's Home, must plant his feet upon its golden rounds. Without its aid you cannot grow into the divine state, the divine likeness, the divine peace, and the fadeless glories and unpolluting joys of Truth will remain hidden from you.
