I have been reading Thin and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill as I am in the process of starting my own business and it is considered one of the classics of its genre. Anyway I am constantly struck at his quite ITLADIAN philosophy towards personal success in life. Take this for example excerpt on a commentary of the book for example:
'A defining feature of this classic is its respect for the ineffable, being possibly the first of this century's prosperity classics to suggest that mental attunement with `Infinite Intelligence' (the Universe, or God) is the source of wealth. Hill realised that consciousness was not confined to the brain; rather, the brain was an element of the great unified Mind. Therefore, to be open to this larger mind was to have access to all knowledge, power and creativity.
He mentions Edison's retreats to his basement where, in the absence of sound and light, he would simply 'receive' his ideas. A person receptive to this realm is likened to a pilot flying high above where normal people work and play. Such vision allows them to see beyond the strictures of regular space and time.'
I think these ideas are quite in tune with what Tony says. What do you guys think?
