Menticulture - Hope
( Originally Published 1901 )
When one has attained the condition of Emancipation, let him be sure that it is only the elementary stage of growth, the happy childhood of true life (no matter what the physical age of the body), and that there is a possibility of development to a point of un-selfishness, whence one can view one's own individuality from without, and direct its action from an impersonal standpoint. Then each of us can will himself to act as he would like to have a beloved friend or relative act in any given situation.
I believe that this is true, and entirely possible to the emancipated mind; but, as I have aimed to present only a personal discovery and experience, I will leave a deeper consideration of the subject to the test of a longer acquaintance with the new-found life.
