    Default tribute to William Walker Atkinson/Yogi Ramacharaka

    William Walker Atkinson (December 5, 1862 - November 22, 1932) was an attorney, merchant, publisher, and author, as well as an occultist and an American pioneer of New Thought movement. He is also known to have been the author of the pseudonymous works attributed to Theron Q. Dumont and Yogi Ramacharaka.[1]

    Due in part to Atkinson's intense personal secrecy and extensive use of pseudonyms, he is now largely forgotten, despite having obtained mention in past editions of Who's Who in America, Religious Leaders of America, and several similar publications -- and having written more than 100 books in the last 30 years of his life. His works have remained in print more or less continuously since 1900.[1][2]

    Atkinson's 1906 book Thought Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World,[2] is associated with the thinking behind the recent phenomena surrounding the 2006 movie and 2007 book, The Secret by Rhonda Byrne.




    example:
    "What is known as "Gnani Yoga" deals
    with the scientific and intellectual knowing of the great questions
    regarding Life and what lies back of Life--the Riddle of the Universe.
    If a thing is
    non-living, then the essence of the Absolute cannot be in it--it must
    be alien and foreign to the Absolute, and in that case the Absolute
    cannot be Absolute for there is something outside of itself. And so it
    becomes of the greatest importance to examine into the evidences of the
    presence of Life in all things, organic or inorganic. The evidence is
    at hand--let us examine it.
    William Walker Atkinson - Quotes
    One draws to himself thought waves corresponding in character with the nature of the prevailing thoughts in his own mind - his mental attitude. Then again he begins to set in motion the great Law of Attraction, whereby he draws to him others likely to help him, and is, in turn, attracted to others who can aid him.



    Thought is a force - a manifestation of energy - having a magnet-like power of attraction.



    The best way to overcome undesirable or negative thoughts and feelings is to cultivate the positive ones.



    The presence of an active, energetic, successful man, or set of men, in a place, will permeate the place with positive vibrations that will stimulate all who abide there.



    If you are not satisfied with what is coming to you, start to work and change your mental attitude and mental states, and you will see a change gradually setting in.



    The best workmen, writers, inventors, composers, etc., are those who are able "to see the thing in the mind", and then reproduce it in materialized form.



    The use of the Will as the projector of Mentative Currents is the real base of all Mental Magic.



    Impressions upon brain cells become deepened by constant practice.



    Many a person has changed his whole physical and mental conditin by a careful, persistent course of auto-suggestion.



    The lives of all of us have been moulded largely by induction through suggestion.



    The secret of visualization lies in the occult and psychological principle that "as is the mental matrix, so is the mental form; and as is the mental form, so is the physical materialization".
