The Game of Life and How to Play it
Florence Scovel Shinn
(This book is often reflected in the modern in "Law of Attraction" offerings)
First published in 1925, "The Game of Life and How to Play It" has inspired people to find a sense of purpose, belonging, and "real" identity.
The words and principles are as relevant today as they were in 1925; and Florence Scovel Shinn reveals that life is not a "meaningless battle to survive" but a "wonderful game" - a game of "giving and receiving" and experiencing.
Whatever we send out into the world, we will eventually receive back - which means that if we give love, we will be loved; but if we hate we will, in turn, be reviled.
The underlying principle that is revealed is that what we give and receive, in reality, shapes, not only our lives, but our reality as well.
Further, Shinn describes how an individual's mind and its "imaging-faculty" play a primary role in the "game of life"; and whatever is "imagined" or "focused upon", will be manifested and experienced as part of the individual's world.
Consequently, you can change your circumstances, leave your regrets and failures behind, and create your own "chosen" future.
