Invisible Acts of Power: Personal Choices that Create Miracles

Front Cover
Thorndike Press, 2005 - 413 pages
In this new teaching, Caroline argues that we are most godlike, most powerful, and most apt to increase our own power when we act invisibly, anonymously, without credit or expectation of reward--this is a universal spiritual principle taught by Jesus ("Give and there will be gifts for you"; "Do not parade your uprightness in public"; "When you pray, do not imitate the hypocrites ... go to your private room, shut yourself in ... and pray in secret ... your Father who sees all that is done in secret will reward you openly.") Buddha ("Fashion your life as a garland of beautiful deeds." "However many holy words you read, However many you speak, What good will they do you If you do not act on upon them?" "Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity. ", and other figures: true power, charity, and goodness come from acts that are not calculated. For this new inspirational and spiritual teaching, Myss has collected more than 1,200 stories from her own experiences and her students' and fans' experiences over the years and has culled from them, permissions already secured, to reprint in this book.
