Why Good Deeds Doesn’t Equal A Good Life!

The majority live in the belief that kindness and charity should bring blessings and abundance to all who practice those virtues. Their belief is, “I am good to everybody, therefore everybody ought to be good to me”; and this belief is sound doctrine as far as it goes. But kindness and charity cannot counteract the ill effects of anger and worry. Neither can goodness to mankind remove all the detrimental results that come from fear, mental depression and other destructive states of mind. Those who are good and kind to the world have as a rule just as much sickness and trouble as those who live principally for self. And the reason why is that the good results that should naturally come from good deeds are neutralized or destroyed through the practice of habitual wrong thinking. Such people seem to deserve the best, but they do not receive the best because they daily violate nearly all the laws of mind.

Living on Today’s Deposits

Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course? Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against “tomorrow.” You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success! The clock is running!! Make the most of tomorrow!
