The language is simple and the style is very effective, the chapters are short and more in the nature of meditations. A valuable addition to anyone who seeks a deeper and richer meaning in life.
Many of us live with the belief that we can achieve heaven or the ultimate peace and happiness only in an after-life. Many of us believe that heaven is a place that is far removed from Earth. The Heavenly Life by James Allen seeks to convince us that heaven and hell are both here on Earth and they lie within our own selves.
A deeply moving, insightful and philosophical book that explores the ideas of living with integrity, in harmony with our fellows and in finding the power of love. The Heavenly Life, published in 1903 explores slightly more complex themes and attempts to reconcile modern-day ideas with spirituality.
James Allen was a pioneer of the self-help movement. His books aimed to help people to help themselves. James Allen discusses metaphysical ideas like the Eternal Now, Perfect Love, Perfect Freedom, Greatness and Goodness, the Original Simplicity, Heaven in the Heart, etc.
