Ralph Waldo Trine (1866 - 1958) was an American philosopher, mystic, teacher, and was an early New Thought writer and mentor. He was a true pioneer in the area of life-transforming thought. His most influential work, In Tune with the Infinite, read and recommended by such luminaries as Queen Victoria, Janet Gaynor and Henry Ford, was originally published in 1897 and has stood the test of time for over a century.
Many of his other works remain in print, including Character-Building Thought Power, The Greatest Thing Ever Known, The Wayfarer on the Open Road, This Mystical Life of Ours, and What All the World's A-Seeking, all considered self-help classics these days.
Unconsciously we are forming habits every moment of our lives. Some are habits of a desirable nature; some are those of a most undesirable nature. Some, though not so bad in themselves, are exceedingly bad in their cumulative effects, and cause us at times much loss, much pain and anguish, while their opposites would, on the contrary, bring as much peace and joy, as well as a continually increasing power. Have we it within our power to determine at all times what types of habits shall take form in our lives? In other words, is habit-forming, character-building, a matter of mere chance, or have we it within our own control? We have, entirely and absolutely. "I will be what I will to be," can be said and should be said by every human soul.
