     Let Us Remember What We Are


    Biddle Publishing 1999

    This is a book about power, where to find it and how to use it to good advantage. When I put to full use the methods described in this book, I succeeded in extracting myself from seemingly endless repetitions of destructive thought and conduct. I have received, as a result of these methods, the ability to respect myself, command my own life, and enjoy a considerable degree of serenity under any circumstance I encounter.
    My goal in this manuscript is to share knowledge of the methods I utilize and to report the results I obtained to others. To those who need them, I hope these methods will deliver as much self-respect, self-command, and inner peace as they have to me.
