The Way of Peace is a New Thought book written by James Allen. Although Allen is more widely known for his As a Man Thinketh, it is the lesser known The Way of Peace (1907) which reflects more accurately his New Thought Movement affiliations, referencing as it does Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism.
The book is essentially a treatise on the importance of meditation as a ‘pathway to divinity’. Whatever we meditate upon, Allen explains, we become. If you meditate upon ‘ that which is selfish and debasing, you will ultimately become selfish and debased’. Whereas if you meditate upon ‘ that which is pure and unselfish you will surely become pure and unselfish’.
