THE GAME OF LIFE via Florence Scovell Shinn: The marriage of the soul and the spirit

The marriage of the soul and the spirit, or the subconscious and superconscious mind

Chapter 1: The Game

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.

Chapter 3: The Power of the Word

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.

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.”

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.

Every note and tone of the singer’s voice is registered. If he coughs or hesitates, it is registered also. So let us break all the old bad records in the subconscious mind, the records of our lives which we do not wish to keep, and make new and beautiful ones.

Speak these words aloud, with power and conviction: “I now smash and demolish (by my spoken word) every untrue record in my subconscious mind. They shall return to the dust-heap of their native nothingness, for they came from my own vain imaginings. I now make my perfect records through the Christ within – The records of Health, Wealth, Love and perfect self-Expression.” This is the square of life, The Game completed.
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

One of the greatest messages given to the race through the scriptures is that God is man’s supply and that man can release, through his spoken word, all that belongs to him by divine right. He must, however, have perfect faith in his spoken word. 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.

I replied: “I suppose you … your power. You can control any situation if you first control yourself.”

… Infinite Spirit was not too late. In this instance the man could never have demonstrated alone. He needed someone to help him hold to the vision. This is what one man can do for another.

Chapter 3: the Power of the Word

A person knowing the power of the word becomes very careful of his conversation. He has only to watch the reaction of his words to know that they do “not return void.” Through his spoken word, man is continually making laws for himself. I knew a man who said, “I always miss a car. It invariably pulls out just as I arrive.”

I have a friend who said nothing could induce her to walk under a ladder. I said, “If you are afraid, you are giving in to a belief in two powers, Good and Evil, instead of one. As God is absolute, there can be no opposing power, unless man makes the false of evil for himself. To show you believe in only One Power, God, and that there is no power or reality in evil, walk under the next ladder you see.”

Thus the invisible forces are ever working for man who is always “pulling the strings” himself, though he does not know it. Owing to the vibratory power of words, whatever man voices, he begins to attract. People who continually speak of disease, invariably attract it.

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.

False growths are caused by jealousy, hatred, unforgiveness, fear, etc. Every disease is caused by a mind not at ease. I said once, in my class, “There is no use asking anyone, ‘What’s the matter with you?’ We might just as well say, ‘Who’s the matter with you?’ “Unforgiveness is the most prolific cause of disease. It will harden arteries or liver, and affect the eyesight. In its train are endless ills.

Here, once again, are some of the most inspirational words … teachings of Florence Scovell Shinn, from her classic Game of Life and How To Play It … her vibrational understanding of The Word

I called on a woman, one day, who said she was ill from having eaten a poisoned oyster. I replied, “Oh, no, the oyster was harmless, you poisoned the oyster. What’s the matter with you?” She answered, “Oh about nineteen people.” She had quarreled with nineteen people and had become so inharmonious that she attracted the wrong oyster.

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.

“Good-will produces a great aura of protection about the one who sends it, and “No weapon that is formed against him shall prosper.” In other words, love and good will destroy the enemies with{in} one’s self, therefore, one has no enemies on the external!

The Law of Non-resistance

There is an old legend, that Adam and Eve ate of “Maya the Tree of Illusion,” and saw two powers instead of one power, God.

Therefore, evil is a false law man has made for himself, through psychoma or soul sleep. Soul sleep means, that man’s soul has been hypnotized by the race belief (of sin, sickness and death, etc.) which is carnal or mortal thought, and his affairs have out-pictured his illusions.

I heard a metaphysician once say, “If you do not run your subconscious mind yourself, someone else will run it for you.”
However, the man who is centered and established in right thinking, the man who sends out only good will to his fellow man, and who is without fear, cannot be touched or influenced by the negative thoughts of others. In fact, he could then receive only good thoughts, as he himself, sends forth only thoughts.

Resistance is Hell, for it places man in a “state of torment.”
A metaphysician once gave me a wonderful recipe for taking every trick in the game of life, it is the acme of non-resistance. He gave it in this way: “At one time in my life, I baptized children, and of course, they had many names. Now I no longer baptize children, but I baptize events, but I give every event the same name. If I have a failure I baptize it success, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost!”
In this, we see the great law of transmutation, founded on nonresistance. Through his spoken word, every failure was transmuted into success.

The inharmonious situation comes from some inharmony within man himself.

When there is, in him, no emotional response to an inharmonious situation, it fades away forever, from his pathway.

So we see man’s work is ever with himself.
One is often cured of his faults by seeing them in others.
Life is a mirror, and we find only ourselves reflected in our associates.

Living in the past is a failure method and a violation of spiritual law.

Jesus Christ said, “Behold, now is the accepted time.” “Now is the day of Salvation.”

Lot’s wife looked back and was turned into a pillar of salt.

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.
“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.”

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.
“Stand ye still and see the salvation of the Lord” (law).
For example: A woman came to me in great distress. Her daughter had determined to take a very hazardous trip, and the mother was filled with fear.

… I said to the mother, “You are forcing your personal will upon your daughter, which you have no right to do, and your fear of the trip is only attracting it, for man attracts what he fears.” I added, “Let go, and take your mental hands off; put it in God’s Hands, and use this statement:” “I put this situation in the hands of Infinite Love and Wisdom; if this trip is the Divine plan, I bless it and not longer resist, but if it is not divinely planned, I give thanks that it is now dissolved and dissipated.”
A day or two after that, her daughter said to her, “Mother, I have given up the trip,” and the situation returned to its “native nothingness.”

It is learning to “stand still,” which seems so difficult for man. I have dealt more fully with this law in the chapter on nonresistance.

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.

So I said: “Infinite Spirit, we call on the law of forgiveness and give thanks that she is under grace and not under law, and cannot lose this twenty dollars which is hers by divine right.”
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.”

In the world thought there is tribulation, but Jesus Christ said: “Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

The world thought is that of sin, sickness and death. He saw their absolute unreality and said sickness and sorrow shall pass away and death itself, the last enemy, be overcome.
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.
