Conditions differ from circumstances. Circumstances are changeable conditions which merely "stand around about you," and, of them, have no stability. They are created by man, and can be overcome by man.
But, differing from circumstances, there are certain conditions which seem to be so "fixed" that they obstruct your progress toward success. They are of two kinds: undesirable facial features, and malformations of body. They are often so fixed that it seems impossible to change them.
Yet, limitations of all such conditions can be overcome! It has been done hundreds of times, and that which has been done, can be done!
Of course, you cannot change your height from four feet eight inches to six feet two inches, but in all dealings with others, you can overcome limitations which you think are due to a stature of four feet eight inches! You can carry yourself in such a way that others will think of you as a king. Napoleon, though short of stature, made himself commanding figure among all classes and manner of men, merely by way he carried himself. He did not increase his stature, but he overcame its limitations.
Whether or not you succeed in overcoming conditions, which it seems impossible for you to change, depends on your vision of powers of your soul, on your faith in its possibilities, and on your use of expression as means of overcoming limitations. If your ideal of possibilities and powers of your real self is limited, then you hinder yourself in climbing out from under conditions. But, if you realize that your soul is infinite, and that its possibilities of expression are limitless; then, no matter what partial manifestation, no matter what restricting condition, no matter what limitation-you can climb out from under it, by changing your expression!
In essence, your soul is perfect-embracing all possibilities and all powers.
In manifestation, you limit yourself by limiting your expression.
