This is gold! Liberace composed, sang and recorded a song based on the self-help message of Claude Bristol's The Magic of Believing. There are so many parts of fabulous about this that I really cannot begin. Just listen and enjoy:

Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
 Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers:

"Infinite and Eternal Spirit of Good, give us renewed power to overcome all our defects. Give us renewed spirit of good-will to all our fellow beings. Give us faith, and make us see more and more clearly the law, the ways, the means, the methods, that shall bring us lasting health, peace, happiness and prosperity. Give us perfect trust in the law of eternal life." 

~ p. 16, "Thought Forces" by Prentice Mulford

Prentice Mulford was an early self-help writer who helped popularise the idea of  "mental science," a term still being used when I was working in a New Age bookstore in the 1990s. This is a specific prayer he suggests for individuals and groups interested in undertaking systematic silent prayer.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks! :D
