A collection of 14 old booklets from the Emmett Fox collection.
Emmet Fox was born in Ireland in 1886. After receiving his education in England, he moved to the United States in the early 1930’s, where he began lecturing on spirituality in New York City. He quickly became one of the most influential leaders of the New Thought Movement and was a major inspiration for Bill W. and Dr. Bob, the co-founders of Alcoholics Anonymous. Fox presented his “essays” at the Hippodrome Theater, the Manhattan Opera House, Carnegie Hall, and the Astor Hotel. These “meetings” were regularly attended by several thousand people, including Bill W., his wife Lois, and many of New York City’s AA members. These “essays” became the basis for various books and pamphlets. Dr. Bob owned, read and recommended Fox’s writings to those he worked with in the Midwest. Much of Emmet Fox’s philosophy resonates throughout the “Big Book.” For example: Devote at least a quarter of an hour a day to prayer and meditation. Train yourself to give the first thought on wakening to God. Resolutely turn your back on the past, good or bad, and live only in the present. Forgive everybody without exception, no matter what they may have done, and . . . then forgive YOURSELF whole-heartedly. Endeavor to make your life of as much service to others as possible. Here, for the first time, is a compilation of many of the “essays” and booklets Emmet Fox wrote during the 1930’s. You can read for yourself the words of a man who had a profound influence on Bill, Bob and the AA old-timers. Wally P. Wally P. is an A.A. archivist / historian and the author of Back to Basics and How to Listen to God. DR. Fox’s work continues to make a difference in the lives of people in all faiths. We are pleased to provide the lost pamphlets so that many more people can benefit from his teachings. Tuchy Palmieri Twice born books from healing-habits.com
THE subject of diet is one of the foremost topics of the present day in public interest. Newspapers and
magazines teem with articles on the subject.
The counters of the bookshops are filled with volumes unfolding the mysteries of proteins,starches, vitamins,and so forth. Just now the whole world is food-conscious. Experts on the subject are saying that physically you become the thing that you eat that your whole body is really composed of the food that you have eaten in the past. What you eat today, they say, will be in your bloodstream after the lapse of so many hours, and it is your bloodstream that builds all the tissues composing your body and there you are.
Of course, no sensible person has any quarrel with all this. It is perfectly true, as far as it goes, and the only surprising thing is that it has taken the world so long to find
it out; but in this pamphlet I am going to deal with the subject of dieting at a level that is infinitely more profound and far, reaching in its effects. I refer of course to mental dieting.
The most important of all factors in your life is the mental diet on which you live. It is
the food which you furnish to your mind that determines the whole character of your life. It is the thoughts you allow yourself to think, the subjects that you allow your mind to dwell upon, which make you and your surroundings what they are. As thy days, so shall thy strength be. Everything in your life today-the state of your body, whether healthy or sick, the state of your fortune, whether prosperous or impoverished, the state of your home, whether happy or the reverse, the present condition of every phase of your life in fact-is entirely conditioned by the thoughts and feel- ings which you have entertained in the past, by the habitual tone of your past thinking.
