Practically, if not theoretically, we admit the element of chance or luck in the government of our lives and consequently, believe in fate; believe that many of our conditions and experiences are beyond our power of control and must be endured with as much fortitude as we are able to command. We have become accustomed to look to the hereafter as the only possible state of freedom from the tyranny of circumstance, and have given to present endurance an amount of energy better expended in gaining control. To see destiny instead of fate, law and order in place of luck or chance, is to see the possibility of control; it is to expend our energy in co-operation with law and thus gain those results which are practical proofs that destiny is master of fate, and we rulers of circumstance instead of its blind slaves. These pages are given in the hope that by their means the road that leads from servitude to mastery may present itself to some who are wandering in a wilderness, seeking a way and finding none. They direct attention to neither stars nor " spirits " but to the ever-present possibilities of the human soul and how they can be developed. They teach concentra- tion, and not needless diffusion, of energy; self-reliance instead of a misplaced dependence upon anything in the heaven above or the earth beneath. Published originally in The Exodus they are now presented in a compact form which enables them to be kept readily at hand as an inspirer of better thoughts and efforts when the drudgery of daily life weighs heavily upon us. ---Ursula N". Gestfeld.
