The Game of Life and how to Play it

by Florence Scovel Shinn

The Game of Life and how to Play it was written by Florence Scovel Schinn in 1925 and was the first of several "New Thought" books she published.

According to Shinn 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. She also believes that the Game of Life is a boomerang - that our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later, with astounding accuracy.

The Game of Life

The Game of Life and how to Play it includes anecdotal explanations of the author's understanding of God and man along with plenty of real life examples. Her philosophy centers on the power of positive thought and includes instructions and suggestions for verbal or physical affirmations.

One of her key premises is that:

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

The Game of Life - Summary

In The Game of Life, Shinn outlines the different methods of impressing the subconscious mind and shows how we can change our conditions by changing our words. These methods include:

  • 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 and he must prepare for the thing he has asked for, when there isn't the slightest sign of it in sight.

  • 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. Owing to the vibratory power of words, whatever man voices, he begins to attract. If a man wishes someone "bad luck", he is sure to attract bad luck himself. If he wishes to aid someone to success, he is wishing and aiding himself to success.

  • the Law of Nonresistance

    So long as man resists a situation, he will have it with him. If he runs away from it, it will run after him. Agree with thine adversary quickly. This means, agree that the adverse situation is good, be undisturbed by it, and it falls away of its own weight. "None of these things move me", is a wonderful affirmation.

  • the Law of Karma.

    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 Law of Forgiveness.

    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.

  • Casting the burden

    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. The superconscious mind (or Christ within) is the department which fights man's battle and relieves him of burdens. The trick is to cast the burden upon the superconscious mind (or Christ within) where it is "made light", or dissolved into its "native nothingness".

  • Love

    Real love is selfless and free from fear. It pours itself out upon the object of its affection, without demanding any return. Its joy is in the joy of giving. Love is God in manifestation, and the strongest magnetic force in the universe. Pure, unselfish love draws to itself its own; it does not need to seek or demand. All disease, all unhappiness, come from the violation of the law of love. Man's boomerangs of hate, resentment and criticism, come back laden with sickness and sorrow.

  • Intuition or Guidance

    There is nothing too great of accomplishment for the man who knows the power of his word, and who follows his intuitive leads. By the word he starts in action unseen forces and can rebuild his body or remold his affairs.

    It is, therefore, of the utmost importance, to choose the right words, and the student carefully selects the affirmation he wishes to catapult into the invisible. He knows that God is his supply, that there is a supply for every demand, and that his spoken word releases this supply. "Ask and ye shall receive".

  • the Divine Design

    There is for each man, perfect self-expression. There is a place which he is to fill and no one else can fill, something which he is to do, which no one else can do; it is his destiny!

    His demand should be: "Infinite Spirit, open the way for the Divine Design of my life to manifest; let the genius within me now be released; let me see clearly the perfect plan". The perfect plan includes health, wealth, love and perfect self-expression. This is the square of life, which brings perfect happiness. When one has made this demand, he may find great changes taking place in his life, for nearly every man has wandered far from the Divine Design

  • Denials and Affirmations

    All the good that is to be made manifest in man's life is already an accomplished fact in divine mind, and is released through man's recognition, or spoken word, so he must be careful to decree that only the Divine Idea be made manifest, for often, he decrees, through his "idle words", failure or misfortune.

    It is, therefore, of the utmost importance, to word one's demands correctly, and Shinn provides examples of affirmations for health, prosperity, guidance and more.

The Game of Life - Excerpts

The Game of Life and how to Play it is a very readable book, and full of sharp insights into why we may not be manifesting what we desire in our life. As a bonus, Shinn includes many real life examples of problems that many of us may face, and explains how these were overcome through the right words and deeds.

Some of her great insights include:

  • on Fear:

    Nothing stands between man and his highest ideals and every desire of his heart, but doubt and fear - fear is only inverted faith; it is faith in evil instead of good.

    If one is willing to do a thing he is afraid to do, he does not have to. Face a situation fearlessly, and there is no situation to face; it falls away of its own weight.

    I am asked, so often by my students, "How can I get rid of fear?" I reply, "By walking up to the thing you are afraid of". "The lion takes its fierceness from your fear".

  • on Worry and Doubt:

    "Why worry, it will probably never happen". These words should be stamped indelibly upon your subconscious mind, and you should have a firm conviction that only good can come into your life, therefore only good can manifest.

  • on the Power of Words:

    There is an old saying that man only dares use his words for three purposes, to "heal, bless or prosper". What man says of others will be said of him, and what he wishes for another, he is wishing for himself. "Curses, like chickens, come home to roost".

  • on the Subconscious:

    I heard a metaphysician once say, "If you do not run your subconscious mind yourself, someone else will run it for you".

  • on our Faults:

    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.

  • On Living in the Present:

    The robbers of time are the past and the future. Man should bless the past, and forget it, if it keeps him in bondage; and bless the future, knowing it has in store for him endless joys, but live fully in the now.

  • on Realising:

    Invariably, before a demonstration (realisation of your goal), come "signs of land". Before Columbus reached America, he saw birds and twigs which showed him land was near. So it is with a demonstration; but often the student mistakes it for the demonstration itself, and is disappointed.

    When one has made his demands upon the Universal, he must be ready for surprises. Everything may seem to be going wrong, when in reality, it is going right.

  • on Acting Out

    Continually "making-believe", impresses the subconscious. If one makes believe he is rich, and makes believe he is successful, in "due time he will reap".

  • on Karma

    So one should become impersonal and learn what each man has to teach him, and soon he would learn his lessons and be free.

    When people are happy, they usually become selfish, and automatically the law of Karma is set in action. Man often suffers loss through lack of appreciation.

  • on Money and Prosperity:

    It is man's divine right to have plenty! More than enough!

    Money is God in manifestation, as freedom from want and limitation, but it must be always kept in circulation and put to right uses. Hoarding and saving react with grim vengeance. In letting it go out fearlessly and cheerfully, he opens the way for more to come in, for God is man's unfailing and inexhaustible supply. This is the spiritual attitude towards money and the great Bank of the Universal never fails!

  • on Giving and Receiving:

    But the gift or tithe must be given with love and cheerfulness, for "God loveth a cheerful giver". Bills should be paid cheerfully; all money should be sent forth fearlessly and with a blessing.

    Man should receive gracefully the bread returning to him upon the water - freely ye have given, freely ye shall receive. If one has been a bad receiver, he must become a good one, and take even a postage stamp if it is given him, and open up his channels for receiving.

  • on Affirmations:

    Continually affirming, establishes the belief in the subconscious. It would not be necessary to make an affirmation more than once if one had perfect faith! One should not plead or supplicate, but give thanks, repeatedly that he has received.
