Road to Recovery

Posted by Tony Mellor on Friday, January 29th, 2010

Wow, what a busy week it has been! The ‘Road to Recovery’ event on the 28th January was the result of months of hard work and I was honoured to be a part of the day and take my place on stage. Byron Katie was inspirational and it was an honour to have met her.

In the aftermath of the event I have come across this across this written piece and thought that it complements everything. Have a read and let me know what you think.


As A Man Thinketh

This little volume (the result of meditation and experience) is not intended as an exhaustive treatise on the much-written upon subject of the power of thought. It is suggestive rather than explanatory, its object being to stimulate men and women to the discovery and perception of the truth that -

“They themselves are makers of themselves”

by virtue of the thoughts which they choose and encourage; that mind is the master weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance, and that, as they may have hitherto woven in ignorance and pain they may now weave in enlightenment and happiness.
