Introduction by Jayaram V

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 thought, 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.
