The Game of Life and How to Play It is an exploration of Florence Scovel Shinn's personal philosophies regarding metaphysics, as in the relationships between mind and matter and the nature of the reality humans experience.
This book outlines many "spiritual ideas" espoused by Shinn, with many emphasizing the importance of being intentional with one's thoughts and actions. Like the law of attraction, Shinn's philosophy posits that if one is thoughtfully and intentionally putting good energy into the world, good energy will return.
A few specific laws found in this book are:
- The Power of Words, meaning the importance of thinking and intentionally utilizing words rather than speaking out of turn
- The Law of Non-Resistance, or resisting the temptation to meet negativity with more negativity
- The Law of Use, which asserts that using wealth is better than hoarding, and that giving gifts is an investment in others
There are many more ideas like this in the book, and all are sure to give readers food for thought. These laws and ideas are useful tools, and can be adopted as ways to more thoughtfully interact with the world and attract positive energy into your life.
