pathwayofRosesThe Pathway of Roses by Christian Larson was originally published in 1912 and is yet another in his vast list of self help, new thought, and metaphysical books.  He is considered by many to be the father and grandfather of the current metaphysical/new/age/self-help authors, and many steal (oops – I mean borrow)…oops I mean are inspired, by his early writings.

“What we call time is only that period in eternity that we are conscious of now, and in truth we cannot call it a period of any definite length. To some it is long, to others it is short, to some it passes quickly, to others it drags, and it is variously interpreted by various minds; but the time itself continues to be the same the eternity that we are conscious of now. It may be stated, however, that time must be passing because something certainly does appear to come and go. But this is only the changing attitude of consciousness as man ascends in the scale. We look at the sun; it appears to move, but we know that the sun is not moving from the earth ‘s point of view ; it is the earth that is moving. In like manner, we have looked upon time as passing, but now we know that time is standing still; we are moving upward and onward forever.”
