The Law of Karma Florence Scovel-Shinn

Man receives only that which he gives. The Game of Life is a game of boomerangs. Man’s thoughts, deeds and words, return to him sooner or later, with astounding accuracy.

This is the law of Karma, which is Sanskrit for “Comeback.” “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

A friend told me this story of herself, illustrating the law. She said, “I make all my Karma on my aunt, whatever I say to her, someone says to me. I am often irritable at home, and one day, said to my aunt, who was talking to me during dinner. ‘No more talk, I wish to eat in peace.'” Continue reading “The Law of Karma Florence Scovel-Shinn”

Be the Change you Want to See in Others – Florence Scovel-Shinn

Daily Vigilance - Be the Change you Want to See in Others People have said to me, “Give treatments to change my husband, or my brother.” I reply, “No, I will give treatments to change you; when you change, your husband and your brother will change.”

One of my students was in the habit of lying. I told her it was a failure method and if she lied, she would be lied to. She replied, “I don’t care, I can’t possibly get along without lying.”

One day she was speaking on the ’phone to a man with whom she was very much in love. She turned to me and said, “I don’t trust him, I know he’s lying to me.” I replied, “Well, you lie yourself, so someone has to lie to you, and you will be sure it will be just the person you want the truth from.” Sometime after that, I saw her, and she said, “I’m cured of lying.” Continue reading “Be the Change you Want to See in Others – Florence Scovel-Shinn”

Florence Scovel-Shinn on Anxiety, Fear and Belief in Interference

Daily Vigilance Anxiety and FearOne day I was impatiently awaiting an important telephone call. I resisted every call that came in and made no out-going calls myself, reasoning that it might interfere with the one I was awaiting.

Instead of saying, “Divine ideas never conflict, the call will come at the right time,” leaving it to Infinite Intelligence to arrange, I commenced to manage things myself—I made the battle mine, not God’s and remained tense and anxious. The bell did not ring for about an hour, and I glanced at the ’phone and found the receiver had been off that length of time, and the ’phone was disconnected.

Acme of Nonresistance – Florence Scovel-Shinn

A metaphysician once gave me a wonderful recipe for taking every trick in the game of life, it is the acme of nonresistance. He gave it in this way; “At one time in my life, I baptized children, and of course, they had many names. Now I no longer baptize children, but I baptize events, but I give every event the same name. If I have a failure I baptize it success, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost!”

In this, we see the great law of transmutation, founded on nonresistance. Through his spoken word, every failure was transmuted into success. Continue reading “Acme of Nonresistance – Florence Scovel-Shinn”

Law of Prosperity - Florence Scovel-Shinn - Daily Vigilance

“Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defense and thou shalt have plenty of silver.”

One of the greatest messages given to the race through the scriptures is that God is man’s supply and that man can release, through his spoken word, all that belongs to him by divine right. He must, however, have perfect faith in his spoken word.

Isaiah said, “My word shall not return unto me void, but shall accomplish that where unto it is sent.” We know now, that words and thoughts are a tremendous vibratory force, ever moulding man’s body and affairs. Continue reading “THE LAW OF PROSPERITY – Florence Scovel-Shinn”
