by Florence Scovel Shinn

The Game of Life and How to Play It is a self-help book written by Florence Scover Shinn and first published in 1925. It teaches the philosophies of its author.

Short in length but packed with courage and insight, this book offers Scovel Shinn's ideas for getting better at this game of life.

The book states that there are a series of 'Laws of metaphysics' and that their ignorance can cause harmful effects in our lives.

However, with these teachings based on the Old and New Testaments, you can turn resentment into love or lack into prosperity.

Some of the key ideas of this book are:

  • The Law of Expectancy: Imagination can cause events in life.
  • The power of words: Words play a major role and the words you use will justify or condemn you.
  • The Divine Pattern and Intuition: We must ask ourselves what is the correct circumstance or the "divine selection" without going into details.
  • The Law of Substitution: Sometimes desires are misdirected and that only brings dissatisfaction and failure.
  • The Law of Karma: Every word or deed will return to the person, what is given, is received.
  • The Law of Non Resistance: We should not react to a negative situation with more negativity.
  • The Law of Forgiveness: Despite the Law of Karma, we must forgive others.
  • The Law of Use: It is better to give away and be generous than to accumulate wealth. Gifts are investments.
  • The Law of Love: Love is key in life and all people should love each other.

"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 uccessfully 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 Giving and Receiving."
