Life is a Game … of Shifting Frequencies … NOT Visualizing and “Forcing” the Universe to Comply

This post is inspired by a comment from BodyTalk and Beyond Debbie Moran that she feels much of what “goes wrong” with the Law of Attraction is that people try to force the Universe … and that it is more about partnering with the Universe and realizing it will provide whatever you ask for in clarity, with a “commanding Presence” and “in partnership”

I too don’t agree w the “forcing” part tho I do agree with / acknowledge the truth of the biblical sow / reap “mechanism”of the Universe as so eloquently spoken of and taught by Florence Scovell Shinn in “The Game of Life and How to Play It” … Nor the “mirroring” part which relates to what some call “projection” …

Btw I don’t believe in life as an “echo” but rather I resonate with what has come to us through Abraham / Hicks re [being able to] tune in to frequencies. And of course it’s not an “effort” thing / effort being a physical universe production. Nor do I see eye-to-eye with the mass-produced view of the LOA: That is based on my experience of being blessed w an “inordinate” amount of synchronicities … none of which I visualized whatsoever 🙂 … including such as “missing a bus” back to NY from a Dr Norm Shealy’s presentation in NJ which led me to “stop off” in Manhattan and meet my fundamentalist Christian friend who knows of Busshism and Edgar Cayce … being rescued from a mugger on the NYC subway by a “stranger” who was named after Malcolm X who I admire …

Special 6-Day Event: The Sedona Method Releasing Fest via Learning Strategies

I first became aware of Learning Strategies’ programs/presentations of healing, spiritual, mindful practices when I decided to participate in their Spring Forest Qigong of Master Chunyi Lin. I mentioned The Sedona Method of Letting Go, very briefly, in an earlier post … at a time there was no Releasing Fest available to enlighten me and thee … Now there is:

The Event Runs From Monday, September 9th – Saturday, September 14th

This six-day Event started yesterday morning, Monday, September 9, 2013, but the Lesson and Process {2 videos} of the first day are still available — as each day’s presentation by Hale Dwoskin, is available online for 48 hours when you go to http://www.releasingfestevent.com

You may ask: “Releasing or letting go what?” … I am glad you asked that question 🙂 It is releasing in the spirit of what, in Buddhist teachings, are “attachments” … emotional attachments … to such as unwanted emotions such as anger, which no longer serve. That is how it feels to me … After having completed going through the first day’s experience of the process, very early this morning, I felt not only a release … I also felt as calm within … or more … than I have ever felt from any spiritual practice or meditation. I felt like I was in the silence after sounding or toning … when a frequency shift occurs … so much so that I did not want to — and did not — open my eyes for quite some time … (Although there apparently is some “technique” to The Sedona Method, in that moment: I flashed on what Frank Kinslow speaks of “pure awareness” … saying that you don’t need to do anything … just BE “pure awareness” … and Ron Hubbard teaching us that each of us {the spiritual being known to one and all as “you”} is an “awareness of awareness” unit … )

A “Middle Path” or Alternative {Option} to the Widespread Patterns of Suppressing or Expressing Emotions

Says Hale: “What we call The Sedona Method  is the {creation of a} balancing point and natural alternative to inappropriate suppression {of emotions — anger or grief, for example} or expression.” There is  a momentary welcoming, in the spirit of the Law of Non-resistance, of what comes into your awareness in the present moment, and then a “releasing, or letting go — It is the equivalent of turning down the heat and safely beginning to empty the contents of your inner pressure cooker.”

In other words:

Have you — or anyone you know — ever tried to “feel better” by EXPRESSING: reactively dramatizing or acting out … or SUPPRESSING: totally/holding in or attempting to bury your feelings {Think: Feelings Buried Alive Never Die — You may want to refer to the book of that title by Karol Truman}? … Or have you ever tried to suppress any unwanted, uncomfortable emotions by resorting to habits or addictions such as drinking, sex, watching TV ad infinitum or even “running the tape” over and over to a (sympathetic) friend or anyone who will listen to you of your stories of how you were victimized or why your anger or other emotion is still with you, in body and mind — without healing your heart or having any relief from the resultant high blood pressure or other physical manifestation that you may have been carrying with you … for years … long after any traumatic incident actually occurred? … {Think: “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” — Gautama Siddhartha Buddha}

What The Sedona Method Is NOT

It is NOT saying affirmations that do no good (as you don’t believe them to be true) … It is not saying affirmations at all. It is NOT “thinking positively,” — although, as Hale Dwoskin says: “Of course, thinking positively is better than thinking negatively.”

Background

In chapter 4 of The Game Of Life — which is based upon The Word {Old, as well as New Testaments as understood in the realm of “all is in vibration”}, Florence Scovell Shinn teaches us of The Law of Non-resistance, that:

As she heard a metaphysician once say: “If you do not run your subconscious mind yourself, someone else will run it for you.” And she goes on to teach that: Resistance is hell, for it places man in a “state of torment.” Thus, she states: “We see the great Law of Transmutation, founded on non-resistance.” And … “Where there is in him {(wo)man}, no emotional response to an inharmonious situation, it fades away forever from his pathway.” Which truly echoes the words of Hale Dwoskin. Or, I might say: The words of Hale Dwoskin’s truly echo the teachings of Florence Scovell Shinn — AND give us a gentle, deep, quantum (in the often, rapid or instantaneous shifts created} way of being that puts her teachings into practice. I welcome this … as I welcome the teachings of those who have given us techniques … or better: ways of BEing that put the “new” epigenetic science of Bruce Lipton into practice. In fact, we might say that The Sedona Method of letting Go also is within the realm of what Dr. Lipton calls us to do: BE in growth mode rather than protect mode.

My Thoughts

Over the last recent days, I have been engaged in Misa Hopkins’ http://www.misahopkins.com Root Of All Healing course, in which she mentions that the Native American Medicine Wheel treats of 4 Levels of Healing: Physical, Mental, Spiritual, Emotional. And, also, in this recent time, I have been studying some of what The Word {New Testament of Jesus} considers to be the difference between Spirit and Soul … and how each may relate to Mind or Heart …

And then … There I was … listening to Hale Dwoskin … who met Lester Levinson, who developed The Sedona Method after he healed his own heart and had the beneficial “side effect” of healing his physical heart … ulcers … and some other manifestations in his body — after doctors had “given him” a short time to live … He was in his forties, back then, in the early 1970s, and he lived another forty years … And he wanted others to experience what he did … physically and spiritually … and the benefits therefrom in many aspects of life (which, these days, a lot of folks do their version(s) of the “Law of Attraction” to manifest). To continue: Hale recounts the story of how, after he met Lester, he knew that this was the work that he {Hale} was meant to do … And he has been doing it for over thirty years …

In the spirit of Gretchen Vogel, who wrote Choices in the Afterlife, and who notes that “emotion creates reality,” I leave it to you, while embodied in this life, to discover and experience for yourself some new choices of reality via The Sedona method if it resonates with you to do so … I say with Hale: Don’t believe something because I say it. Blessings … Thank you for letting me be part of your journey … And let me know how it’s going …

It is only when we have the courage
To face things exactly as they are,
Without any self-deception or illusion,
That a light will develop out of events,
By which the path to success
May be recognized. — The I Ching {The Book of Changes}

THE GAME OF LIFE via Florence Scovell Shinn and THE SEDONA METHOD OF LETTING GO

The Law of Non-resistance and The Beginning of Wisdom

(The Sedona Method of Letting Go)

Chapter 4: 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 {good} 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.

THE GAME OF LIFE via Florence Scovell Shinn and AUTOGENIC TRAINING

The Vibratory Power of Words

(Autogenic Training Via Dr. Norm Shealy)

Chapter 1: The Game

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 {~gave up~} your power. You can control any situation if you first control yourself.”

BE in Stillness … Awaken to Thoughts and Beliefs that have not been conscious 

The Marriage of the Soul and the Spirit:
The Subconscious and Superconscious Mind
(REIKI: Intelligent Energy of the Spirit of Creation: “I open myself to divine love and wisdom…”)

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.”

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

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.

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.

Message from Master Merlin and Lady Mary Magdalena
During this powerful time between 12.12.12 and 13.1.13 – which all carry the vibrational energy of 9 – the number of endings, of preparations for the new to be born – rebirthed, it is pivotal that each one of you takes this time for a minimum of 9 minutes each day for visualization of a beautiful, peaceful and harmonic world. It would be particularly beneficial for this to be done 9 times each day for 9 minutes each time. 9+9=9 (1+8). A powerful time for you all to end the destruction of yourselves and your home. By ending the negative thoughts, actions and reactions that you all carry. Such a powerful time and you each have the power to use it for the betterment of the whole.

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} ….

The The Word: The Teachings of Jean Cambreau: “Words are spirit”

Words are spirit. That’s why it is so large a task to feel them, instead of read them. When you try to understand what is written here you must understand in your heart — not in your brain. For when you think about the words, you consider their human possibility and you consider their human application and you suddenly perceive that you are considering everything about them through your own senses and that they are beyond that … You cannot catch them with your senses. You must catch them with your heart, with the love which you can feel, the gratitude which you express …” — Jean Cambreau to Philip LaSalle in Not Too Narrow … Not Too Deep, written in 1936 by Richard Sale

John 6:63 NIV {New International Version}

The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.

Perfection Based Upon a Belief

“Faith in the words of the Messiah brings miracles or transformation of the body. He said: ‘The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life {John 6:63 New International Version}.’

“Proof of this power was Yeshua healing Israel from all manner of sickness, giving sight to the blind and stilling the wind and waves of the sea. What was required is that the individual have faith in Yahweh. For example, two blind men approached the Messiah and asked Him to heal them (Mt. 9:29). The Messiah said to them: “Do you believe that I am able to do this (Mt 9:28-30)?” They replied: “Yes, Lord.” Yeshua the Messiah touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith will it be done to you.” Immediately their sight was restored.

“The principle is that ‘faith’ can bring about a transformation and renewal of the physical body, which makes it a new creation. In fact, this is what occurred at the beginning of Moses’ vision when he described the creation of the heaven and earth {Gen. 1st chapter}. Elohim {God} said: ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light (Gen 1:3).”

The Game of Life and How to Play It —
Florence Scovel Shinn

Chapter 1: The Game

Most people consider life a battle — but it is not a battle, it is a game.

It is a game, however, which cannot be played successfully without the knowledge of spiritual law, and the 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.

If he gives hate, he will receive hate; if he gives love, he will receive love; if he gives criticism, he will receive criticism; if he lies he will be lied to; if he cheats he will be cheated. We are taught also, that the imaging faculty plays a leading part in the game of life.

“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. I know of a man who feared a certain disease. It was a very rare disease and difficult to get, but he pictured it continually and read about it until it manifested in his body, and he died, the victim of distorted imagination.

So we see, to play successfully the game of life, we must train the imaging faculty. A person with an imaging faculty trained to image only good, brings into his life “every righteous desire of his heart” — health, wealth, love, friends, perfect self-expression, his highest ideals.

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.

Whatever man feels deeply or images clearly, is impressed upon the subconscious mind, and carried out in minutest detail.

For example: a woman I know, when a child, always “made believe” she was a widow. She “dressed up” in black clothes and wore a long black veil, and people thought she was very clever and amusing. She grew up and married a man with whom she was deeply in love. In a short time he died and she wore black and a sweeping veil for many years. The picture of herself as a widow was impressed upon the subconscious mind, and in due time worked itself out, regardless of the havoc created.

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.

Many people, however, are in ignorance of their true destinies and are striving for things and situations which do not belong to them, and would only bring failure and dissatisfaction if attained.

For example: A woman came to me and asked me to “speak the word” that she would marry a certain man with whom she was very much in love. (She called him A. B.)

I replied that this would be a violation of spiritual law, but that I would speak the word for the right man, the “divine selection,” the man who belonged to her by divine right.

I added, “If A. B. is the right man you can’t lose him, and if he isn’t, you will receive his equivalent.” She saw A. B. frequently but no headway was made in their friendship. One evening she called, and said, “Do you know, for the last week, A. B. hasn’t seemed so wonderful to me.” I replied, “Maybe he is not the divine selection — another man my be the right one.” Soon after that, she met another man who fell in love with her at once, and who said she was his ideal. In fact, he said all the things that she had always wished A. B. would say to her.

She remarked, “It was quite uncanny.”

She soon returned his love, and lost all interest in A. B.

This shows the law of substitution. A right idea was substituted for a wrong one, therefore there was no loss or sacrifice involved.

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.”

Many people have brought disaster into their lives through idle words.

For example: A woman once asked me why her life was now one of poverty of limitation. Formerly she had a home, was surrounded by beautiful things and had plenty of money. We found she had often tired of the management of her home, and had said repeatedly, “I’m sick and tired of things — I wish I lived in a trunk,” and she added: “Today I am living in that trunk.” She had spoken herself into a trunk. The subconscious mind has no sense of humor and people often joke themselves into unhappy experiences.

For example: A woman who had a great deal of money, joked continually about “getting ready for the poor-house.”

In a few years she was almost destitute, having impressed the subconscious mind with a picture of lack and limitation.

Fortunately the law works both ways, and a situation of lack may be changed to one of plenty.

For example: A woman came to me one hot summer’s day for a “treatment” for prosperity. She was worn out, dejected and discouraged. She said she possessed just eight dollars in the world. I said, “Good, we’ll bless the eight dollars and multiply them as Jesus Christ multiplied the loaves and fishes,” for He taught that every man had the power to bless and to multiply, to heal and to prosper.

She said, “What shall I do next.”

I replied, “Follow intuition. Have you a ‘hunch’ to do anything, or to go anywhere?” Intuition means, in-tuition, or to be taught from within. It is man’s unerring guide, and I will deal more fully with its laws in a following chapter.

The woman replied: “I don’t know — I seem to have a ‘hunch’ to go home; I’ve just enough money for carfare.” Her home was in a distant city and was one of lack and limitation, and the reasoning mind (or intellect) would have said: “Stay in New York and get work and make some money.” I replied, “Then go home — never violate a hunch.” I spoke the following words for her: Infinite Spirit open the way for great abundance for ___. She is an irresistible magnet for all that belongs to her by divine right.” I told her to repeat it continually also. She left for home immediately. In calling on a woman one day, she linked up with an old friend of her family.

Through this friend, she received thousands of dollars in a most miraculous way. She has said to me often, “Tell people about the woman who came to you with eight dollars and a hunch.”

There is always plenty on man’s pathway; but it can only be brought into manifestation through desire, faith or the spoken word. Jesus Christ brought out clearly that man must make the first move.

Ask, and it shall be given you, seek, and ye shall find, knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” (Mat. 7:7).

In the scriptures we read:

“Concerning the works of my hands, command ye me.”

Infinite Intelligence, God, is ever ready to carry out man’s smallest or greatest demands.

Every desire, uttered or unexpressed, is a demand. We are often startled by having a wish suddenly fulfilled.

For example: One Easter, having seen many beautiful rose-trees in the florists’ windows, I wished I would receive one, and for an instant saw it mentally being carried in the door.

Easter came, and with it a beautiful rose-tree. I thanked my friend the following day, and told her it was just what I had wanted.

She replied, “I didn’t send you a rose-tree, I sent you lilies!”

The man had mixed the order, and sent me a rose-tree simply because I had started the law in action, and I had to have a rose-tree.

Nothing stands between man and his highest ideals and every desire of his heart, but doubt and fear. When man can “wish without worrying,” every desire will be instantly fulfilled.

I will explain more fully in a following chapter the scientific reason for this and how fear must be erased from the consciousness. It is man’s only enemy — fear of lack, fear of failure, fear of sickness, fear of loss and a feeling of insecurity on some plane. Jesus Christ said: “Why are ye fearful, oh ye of little faith?” (Mat. 8:26.) So we can see we must substitute faith for fear, for fear is only inverted faith; it is faith in evil instead of good.

The object of the game of life is to see clearly one’s good and to obliterate all mental pictures of evil. This must be done by impressing the subconscious mind with a realization of good. A very brilliant man, who has attained great success, told me he had suddenly erased all fear from his consciousness by reading a sign which hung in a room. He saw printed, in large letters this statement – “Why worry, it will probably never happen.” These words were stamped indelibly upon his subconscious mind, and he has now a firm conviction that only good can come into his life, therefore only good can manifest.

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. 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.

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.)
