The Game of Life and How to Play It, published in 1925, teaches the philosophies of its author, Florence Scovel Shinn.
Some of the Spiritual ideas Shinn explains in the book:
The Law of Expectancy: Shinn emphasizes the power of the imagination to bring about life events: "Whatever man feels deeply or images clearly, is impressed upon the subconscious mind and carried out in minutest detail."
The power of words: "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 Divine Pattern and Intuition: Shinn says that one must always ask for the "right" circumstance or the "Divine selection," and not to ask for specifics.
The Law of Non-Resistance: The Law of Non-Resistance may be considered a sensible corollary to the Law of Karma, i.e. do not react to a negative situation with more negativity, as that will bring back more harm down the track.
The Law of Forgiveness: Though Karma is a powerful law, Shinn explains that the Law of Forgiveness or Grace is a higher 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."
The Law of Love: Shinn quotes Jesus when she explains the importance of love. "Every man on this planet is taking his initiation in love. "A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another."
