The Secret of the Ages should be rightfully called the original of
"The Secret." Those who cannot afford to buy the latter,
can conveniently go through this work and probably won't miss much.
The Secret of the Ages is one of the pioneering works on
the powers of the Universal Mind and the subconscious mind. In
24 chapters loaded with useful information, the author presents the
unique powers of the human mind dealing with
such subjects as the Law of Attraction, the powers of the conscious
mind, how to attract abundance and good health through the power of
belief and positive thinking, and
how we can tap into the unlimited riches and powers of Universal Mind or the Mind Of God to realize our dreams and goals
for success and fulfillment in our lives. Robert Collier's work
provided inspiration and direction for a number of books that
emerged later espousing similar themes.
He quotes extensively from the Bible but does not sound preaching or advocating
the religion. Those who
are not familiar with the teachings of Christianity may still find
the work useful, since most of the spiritual ideas presented in the
book are also found in most of the religions. In the last volume of
his work, he
deals with the subject of healing and argues that we can overcome the problem of aging through our
thinking instead of relying exclusively on drugs and that youth is a
state of mind rather than a physical condition. The
book was originally published in 1926 in seven small volumes, each containing
a few chapters. In this electronic version we are bringing to you all the seven volumes.
