The Ardue Editor is most grateful to the author and publisher for permission to include this book in the Ardue Library. It is one of the rarest of works: an elegant and simple exploration of the most profound mystery underlying human experience.
This Ardue edition is a re-presentation in hypertext of This Three-legged Stool, Copyright Š 2001 by Myron Ball. ISBN 09640476-1-6
As repeatedly emphasised throughout the Ardue Web Site, a combination of three distinct factors can always be detected in the manner in which The Holy Spirit produces all its discernible manifestations. This Three-legged Stool provides clear simple practical guidance which enables ordinary people like you and me to apply this Law as we seek to co-operate with The Holy Spirit in producing desirable effects in the physical world.

In the sunset of a life of independent thinking, retired from the practice of podiatry, the author divides his time between distant grandchildren, the tennis court, Talmud classes, and colloquies in philosophy-metaphysics. He teaches the course of Self Discovery: The New Sensors, The New Skills, developed from This Three-legged Stool.
The author welcomes contact with readers through the publisher (Hudson Yard Publishers, Dallas) and e-mail ([email protected]).
