“The problem today lies not in getting religion into business and personal relations, but in getting life and light into our personal religion.” — Eric Butterworth, from Discover the Power Within You, Harper and Row 1968
If you are beginning to realize there may be more to the message of Jesus than what you have been taught in church, the New Thought classic Discover the Power Within You by Eric Butterworth is a good place to start. This book is available in our bookstore.
“We all have a life to live! We all have unique and distinctive purposes to fulfill! Everybody has a purpose on earth, and everybody must live the true purpose why God gives life to us each day! You are not on earth to compete with anybody but your true purpose. You are not on earth to compare yourself to anybody, but the you in you and the true purpose for which you came here! Life is good when you don’t compare yourself in a manner that will make you feel bad. Life is good when you know your true purpose in life and who you must live to be and to please! You fulfill your true you distinctively when you understand you are you and not anybody! So many people are living others destiny just because they have neglected their own true purpose! So many people think badly just because they compare themselves wrongfully with others and things! Everybody has a life and everybody must live a life! If there is any reason to compare yourself to others and things, let it be the inspiration you get from comparing yourself with others and things that makes you do something unique! There is a true reason for our existence on earth and we must reason from nothing, but the true reason why we live each day!”
― Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
