Life As A Game and How to Play It … Based Upon The Word by Florence Scovell Shinn: Foundation for Application

May this post be your entry point to apply some of The Game Of Life, thanks to Florence Scovell Shinn, if you haven’t already done so, from the previous posts of her material which is in the public domain …

Chapter 1: The Game

Old and the New Testaments give the rules of the game with wonderful clearness. Jesus Christ taught that it was a great game of Giving and Receiving.

“Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap.” This means that whatever man sends out in word or deed, will return to him; what he gives, he will receive.

Keep thy heart (or imagination) with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.” (Prov. 4:23.)

This means that what man images, sooner or later externalizes in his affairs ….

The imagination has been called, “The Scissors of the Mind,” and it is ever cutting, cutting, day-by-day, the pictures man sees there, and sooner or later he meets his own creations in his outer world. To train the imagination successfully, man must understand the workings of his mind. The Greeks said: “Know Thyself.”

There are three departments of the mind, the subconscious, conscious and superconscious. The subconscious, is simply power, without direction. It is like steam or electricity, and it does what it is directed to do; it has no power of induction.

The conscious mind has been called mortal or carnal mind.

It is the human mind and sees life as it appears to be. It sees death, disaster, sickness, poverty and limitation of every kind, and it impresses the subconscious.

The superconscious mind is the God Mind within each man, and is the realm of perfect ideas.

In it, is the “perfect pattern” spoken of by Plato, The Divine Design, for there is a Divine Design for each person.

There is a place that you are to fill and no one else can fill, something you are to do, which no one else can do.”

There is a perfect picture of this in the superconscious mind. It usually flashes across the conscious as an unattainable ideal – “something too good to be true.”

In reality it is man’s true destiny (or destination) flashed to him from the Infinite Intelligence which is within himself.

Jesus Christ said, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you,” and he said the Kingdom was within man.

The Kingdom is the realm of right ideas, or the divine pattern.

Jesus Christ taught that man’s words played a leading part in the game of life. “By your words ye are justified and by your words ye are condemned.”

In the following chapter I will deal with the different methods of impressing the subconscious mind. It is man’s faithful servant but one must be careful to give it the right orders. Man has ever a silent listener at his side – his subconscious mind.

Every thought, every word is impressed upon it and carried out in amazing detail. It is like a singer making a record on the sensitive disc of the phonographic plate.

In the following chapters, I will show how man can change his conditions by changing his words. Any man who does not know the power of the word, is behind the times.

Death and Life are in the power of the tongue.” (Prov. 18:21.)

Chapter 2: The Law of Prosperity

Isaiah said, “My word shall not return unto me void, but shall accomplish that where it is sent.” We know now, that words and thoughts are a tremendous vibratory force, ever moulding man’s body and affairs.

His clear vision pierced the “world of matter” and he saw clearly the fourth dimensional world, things as they really are, perfect and complete in Divine Mind. So man must ever hold the vision of his journey’s end and demand the manifestation of that which he has already received. It may be his perfect health, love, supply, self-expression, home or friends.

They are all finished and perfect ideas registered in Divine Mind (man’s own superconscious mind) and must come through him, not to him.  

You can control any situation if you first control yourself.”

Chapter 3: The Power of the Word

Someone has said that courage contains genius and magic. Face a situation fearlessly, and there is no situation to face; it falls away of its own weight.

In the twenty-third psalm, we read: “He restoreth my soul.” This means that the subconscious mind or soul, must be restored with the right ideas, and the “mystical marriage” is the marriage of the soul and the spirit, or the subconscious and superconscious mind. They must be one. When the subconscious is flooded with the perfect ideas of the superconscious, God and man are one, “I and the Father are one.” That is, he is one with the realm of perfect ideas; he is the man made in God’s likeness and image (imagination) and is given power and dominion over all created things, his mind, body and affairs.

Any inharmony on the external, indicates there is mental inharmony. “As the within, so the without.”

Man’s only enemies are within himself. “And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.” Personality is one of the last enemies to be overcome, as this planet is taking its initiation in love. It was Christ’s message – “Peace on Earth, good will towards man.” The enlightened man, therefore, endeavors to perfect himself upon his neighbor. His work is with himself, to send out goodwill and blessings to every man, and the marvelous thing is, that if one blesses a man he has no power to harm him.

Chapter 5: The Law of Karma and The Law of Forgiveness

Man receives only that which he gives. The Game of Life is a game of boomerangs. Man’s thoughts, deeds and words, return to him sooner or later, with astounding accuracy. This is the law of Karma, which is Sanskrit for “Comeback.” “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

The more man knows, the more he is responsible for, and a person with a knowledge of Spiritual Law, which he does not practice, suffers greatly, in consequence. “The fear of the Lord (law) is the beginning of wisdom.” If we read the word Lord, law, it will make many passages in the Bible much clearer.

Jesus Christ said, “And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

So, we see freedom (from all unhappy conditions) comes through knowledge – a knowledge of Spiritual Law.

“Vengeance is mine, I will repay saith the Lord” (law). It is the law which takes vengeance, not God. God sees man perfect, “created in his own image,” (imagination) and given “power and dominion.”

Man is admonished, “My will be done not thine,”and the curious thing is, man always gets just what he desires when he does relinquish personal will, thereby enabling Infinite Intelligence to work through him.

“Stand ye still and see the salvation of the Lord” (law).

Christianity is founded upon the law of forgiveness – Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Karmic law, and the Christ within each man is his Redeemer and Salvation from all inharmonious conditions.

Man cannot force the external to be what he is not.

If he desires riches, he must be rich first in consciousness.

Jesus Christ brought the good news (the gospel) that there was a higher law than the law of Karma – and that that law transcends the law of Karma. It is the law of grace, or forgiveness. It is the law which frees man from the law of cause and effect – the law of consequence. “Under grace, and not under law.”

We know now, from a scientific standpoint, that death could be overcome by stamping the subconscious mind with the conviction of eternal youth and eternal life.

The subconscious, being simply power without direction, carries out orders without questioning.

Working under the direction of the superconscious (the Christ or God within man) the “resurrection of the body” would be accomplished.

Chapter 6: Casting the Burden – Impressing the Subconscious

When man knows his own powers and the workings of his mind, his great desire is to find an easy and quick way to impress the subconscious with good, for simply an intellectual knowledge of the Truth will not bring results. In my own case, I found the easiest way is in “casting the burden.”

A metaphysician once explained it in this manner. He said, “The only thing which gives anything weight in nature, is the law of gravitation, and if a boulder could be taken high above the planet, there would be no weight in that boulder; and that is what Jesus Christ meant when he said: “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

He had overcome the world vibration, and functioned in the fourth dimensional realm, where there is only perfection, completion, life and joy.

We are also told in the fifty-fifth Psalm, to “cast thy burden upon the Lord.” Many passages in the Bible state that the battle is God’s not man’s and that man is always to “stand still” and see the Salvation of the Lord.

This indicates that the superconscious mind (or Christ within) is the department which fights man’s battle and relieves him of burdens.

We see, therefore, that man violates law if he carries a burden, and a burden is an adverse thought or condition, and this thought or condition has its root in the subconscious.

It seems almost impossible to make any headway directing the subconscious from the conscious, or reasoning mind, as the reasoning mind (the intellect) is limited in its conceptions, and filled with doubts and fears.

How scientific it then is, to cast the burden upon the superconscious mind (or Christ within) where it is “made light,” or dissolved into its native nothingness.”

I have noticed, in “casting the burden,” after a little while, one seems to see clearly. It is impossible to have clear vision, while in the throes of carnal mind. Doubts and fear poison the mind and body and imagination runs riot, attracting disaster and disease.

In steadily repeating the affirmation, “I cast this burden on the Christ within, and go free,” the vision clears, and with it a feeling of relief, and sooner or later comes the manifestation of good, be it health, happiness or supply.

In steadily repeating the affirmation, “I cast this burden on the Christ within, and go free,” the vision clears, and with it a feeling of relief, and sooner or later comes the manifestation of good, be it health, happiness or supply.

One of my students once asked me to explain the “darkness before the dawn.” I referred in a preceding chapter to the fact that often, before the big demonstration “everything seems to go wrong,” and deep depression clouds the consciousness. It means that out of the subconscious are rising the doubts and fears of the ages. These old derelicts of the subconscious rise to the surface, to be put out.

It is then that man should clap his cymbals, like Jehoshaphat, and give thanks that he is saved, even though he seems surrounded by the enemy (the situation of lack or disease). The student continued, “How long must one remain in the dark” and I replied {To Be continued} ….
