Every man on this planet is taking his initiation in love. “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another.” Ouspensky states, in “Tertium Organum,” that “love is a cosmic phenomenon,” and opens to man the fourth dimensional world, “The World of the Wondrous.” Continue reading “Love – Florence Scovel-Shinn”
No man is a success in business unless he loves his work. The picture the artist paints for love (of his art) is his greatest work. The pot-boiler is always something to live down.
No man can attract money if he despises it. Many people are kept in poverty by saying: “Money means nothing to me, and I have a contempt for people who have it.”
This is the reason so many artists are poor. Their contempt for money separates them from it.
I remember hearing one artist say of another, “He’s no good as an artist, he has money in the bank.”
This attitude of mind, of course, separates man from his supply; he must be in harmony with a thing in order to attract it. Continue reading “How to Attract Money – Florence Scovel-Shinn”
Jesus Christ brought the good news (the gospel) that there was a higher law than the law of Karma—and that that law transcends the law of Karma. It is the law of grace, or forgiveness. It is the law which frees man from the law of cause and effect—the law of consequence. “Under grace, and not under law.”
We are told that on this plane, man reaps where he has not sown; the gifts of God are simply poured out upon him. “All that the Kingdom affords is his.” This continued state of bliss awaits the man who has overcome the race (or world) thought. Continue reading “The Law of Grace Transcends the Law of Karma”
One of my students was shopping with her little nephew. The child clamored for a toy, which she told him she could not afford to buy.
She realized suddenly that she was seeking lack, and not recognizing God as her supply!
So she bought the toy, and on her way home, picked up, in the street, the exact amount of money she had paid for it. Continue reading “God is your Supply so Spend Fearlessly – Florence Scovel-Shinn”
Many people are in ignorance of the fact that gifts and things are investments, and that hoarding and saving invariably lead to loss.
“There is that scattereth and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.”
I knew a man who wanted to buy a fur-lined overcoat. He and his wife went to various shops, but there was none he wanted. He said they were all too cheap-looking. At last, he was shown one, the salesman said was valued at a thousand dollars, but which the manager would sell him for five-hundred dollars, as it was late in the season. Continue reading “You have to Feel Rich to be Rich – Florence Scovel-Shinn”
Man cannot force the external to be what he is not. If he desires riches, he must be rich first in consciousness.
A woman came to me asking treatment for prosperity. She did not take much interest in her household affairs, and her home was in great disorder.
I said to her, “If you wish to be rich, you must be orderly. All men with great wealth are orderly—and order is heaven’s first law.” I added, “You will never become rich with a burnt match in the pincushion.” Continue reading “How to be Rich – Florence Scovel-Shinn”
I will give another example of sowing and reaping, which came in the most curious way.
A woman came to me saying, she had received a counterfeit twenty-dollar bill, given to her at the bank. She was much disturbed, for, she said, “The people at the bank will never acknowledge their mistake.”
I replied, “Let us analyze the situation and find out why you attracted it.”
She thought a few moments and exclaimed: “I know it, I sent a friend a lot of stage money, just for a joke.” So the law had sent her some stage money, for it doesn’t know anything about jokes.

“Nothing ever happens without an on-looker” is an ancient saying.
Man sees first his failure or success, his joy or sorrow, before it swings into visibility from the scenes set in his own imagination. We have observed this in the mother picturing disease for her child, or a woman seeing success for her husband.
Jesus Christ said, “And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”
So, we see freedom (from all unhappy conditions) comes through knowledge—a knowledge of Spiritual Law.
Obedience precedes authority, and the law obeys man when he obeys the law. The law of electricity must be obeyed before it becomes man’s servant. When handled ignorantly, it becomes man’s deadly foe. So with the laws of Mind! Continue reading “Controlling the Law of Karma – Florence Scovel-Shinn”
