We see an example of hoarding in the film production of “Greed.” The woman won five thousand dollars in a lottery, but would not spend it. She hoarded and saved, let her husband suffer and starve, and eventually she scrubbed floors for a living.
She loved the money itself and put it above everything, and one night she was murdered and the money taken from her.
This is an example of where “love of money is the root of all evil.” Money in itself, is good and beneficial, but used for destructive purposes, hoarded and saved, or considered more important than love, brings disease and disaster, and the loss of the money itself.
Follow the path of love, and all things are added, for God is love, and God is supply; follow the path of selfishness and greed, and the supply vanishes, or man is separated from it. Continue reading “Love of Money is the Root of all Evil – Florence Scovel-Shinn”
The invisible forces are ever working for the man who is always ‘pulling the strings” himself, though he does not know it. Owing to the vibratory power of words, whatever man voices, he begins to attract. People who continually speak of disease invariably attract it.
After man knows the truth, he cannot be too careful of his words. For example: I have a friend who often says on the ’phone, “Do come to see me and have a fine old-fashioned chat.” This “old-fashioned chat” means an hour of about five hundred to a thousand destructive words, the principal topics being loss, lack, failure and sickness.

“By thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”
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.
I knew a man who said, “I always miss a car. It invariably pulls out just as I arrive.”
His daughter said: “I always catch a car. It’s sure to come just as I get there.” This occurred for years. Each had made a separate law for himself, one of failure, one of success.
Pretty simple action plan here: Watch your words.
I know, in my own case, it took a long while to get out of a belief that a certain thing brought disappointment. If the thing happened, disappointment invariably followed. I found the only way I could make a change in the subconscious, was by asserting, “There are not two powers, there is only one power, God, therefore, there are no disappointments, and this thing means a happy surprise.” I noticed a change at once, and happy surprises commenced coming my way.
I have a friend who said nothing could induce her to walk under a ladder. I said, “If you are afraid, you are giving in to a belief in two powers, Good and Evil, instead of one. As God is absolute, there can be no opposing power, unless man makes the false of evil for himself. To show you believe in only One Power, God, and that there is no power or reality in evil, walk under the next ladder you see.” Continue reading “Face your Fear – Florence Scovel-Shinn”
There is always plenty on man’s pathway; but it can only be brought into manifestation through desire, faith or the spoken word. Jesus Christ brought out clearly that man must make the first move.
“Ask, and it shall be given you, seek, and ye shall find, knock, and it shall be opened unto you. (Mat. 7:7.) Continue reading “Manifesting – Florence Scovel-Shinn”
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.”
Many people have brought disaster into their lives through idle words.
For example: A woman once asked me why her life was now one of poverty of limitation. Formerly she had a home, was surrounded by beautiful things and had plenty of money. We found she had often tired of the management of her home, and had said repeatedly, “I’m sick and tired of things—I wish I lived in a trunk,” and she added: “Today I am living in that trunk.” She had spoken herself into a trunk. The subconscious mind has no sense of humor and people often joke themselves into unhappy experiences.
For example: A woman who had a great deal of money, joked continually about “getting ready for the poorhouse.” Continue reading “Power of the Spoken Word – Florence Scovel-Shinn”
