NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON… God centered, Native inspired, backed by Science, forward thinking NLP born centuries ago… The first lesson to be learned in the school of life is to understand one’s own personality or individuality, so as to estimate it at its true value, and to be able to use it for good and to avoid using it for evil. A man should know all that can be known of the power which he is every day wielding simply by being what he is and by thinking, looking, speaking, and acting as he does. It is one’s duty to make the most and the best of what is in him; and he is best equipped for this who knows himself most thoroughly. The object of this book is to aid toward the accomplishment of this end. There appear to be two influences in this world of ours, the good and the bad or the harmonious and the discordant, which permeate all mankind and shape and control all human actions. Wherever there are two, if one is removed, the other remains; if the discordant is removed, the harmonious will be left. Good, the absolutely harmonious, must be the enduring and essential because it is from God. Then an important part of the work of every one is to remove the evil or discordant and thus uncover the good. This includes the whole scheme of reformation, improvement, and progress. Much of this book is devoted to external matters which man can detach from himself and throw away. By shaking out of his mind every cumbering thought of discord and error he may disclose to view the real man in all the perfection which his Creator bestowed upon him, and thus rise to that divine height of purity and perfection which has heretofore been deemed inaccessible. There is another topic, higher and even more attractive than this, which deals with the divine perfection inherent in man and in all creation; this is to be the subject of another book which is planned to follow this one.
I am impressed and deeply grateful to whoever questioned my lineage to Sequoyah. Because of somebody’s disbelief and confusion I have been abundantly blessed. It was someone’s misunderstanding that my father/uncle was related to Sequoyah and that is NOT correct, it is on my mother’s side that I am the direct descendant of Sequoyah. These original documents beginning November 6, 1919 were sent to me along with many blessings because of this confusion. These documents came directly from the abstract company courtesy of the Cherokee Nation. Cross reference the DAWS commission rolls with the 15 pages referencing the land left to my mother’s side of the family from Sequoyah… My father/uncle is an heir by marriage not by blood because he is the husband of my mother’s sister. These are rare gems I may never have seen if it weren’t for this confusion… Thank you…
