Florence Scovel Shinn has been regarded by some as one of the most inspirational women who ever walked the planet. She was a spiritual woman who believed in the power of intention… vision… and words.
She wrote the following in 1925 and titled the work The Game of Life and How to Play It. Regardless of your religious persuasion, we are betting her words can provide you with inspiration — and even guidance for finding your vision, focus, and clarity for moving forward with power in 2019.
Here are her words.
“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.)
