GAME OF LIFE

Most people consider life a battle, but it is not a battle but a game. A great game of Giving and Receiving. Whatever a man sows he shall reap. Means whatever man sends out in word or deed will return to him; what he gives, he will receive. If he gives hate, he will receive hate; if he gives love, he will receive love. The imaging faculty plays a leading part in game of life.

To play successfully the game of life, we must train the imaging faculty. A person with an imaging faculty trained to image only good, brings into his life "every righteous desire of his heart"- health, wealth,love,friends,perfect self-expression, his highest ideals. The imagination has been called, 'The scissors of the mind', and it is ever cutting, cutting, the pictures man see, and sooner or later he meets his own creation in his outer world. To train the imagination successfully, man must understand the workings of his mind.

There are three departments of the mind, the subconscious, conscious and super conscious. The subconscious, is simply power, without direction. It is like steam or electricity, and it does what it is directed to do; it has no power of induction. Whatever man feels deeply or images clearly, is impressed upon the subconscious mind, and carried out in minutest detail.

The conscious mind has been called mortal or carnal mind. It is the human mind and sees life as it appears to be. It sees death, disaster, sickness, poverty and limitation of every kind,and it impresses the subconscious.

The super conscious mind is the God Mind within each man, and is the realm of perfect ideas. In it, is the "perfect pattern" spoken of by Plato, The Divine Design; for there is a Divine Design for each person. "There is a place that you are to fill and no one else can do." There is a perfect picture of this in the super conscious mind. It usually flashes across the conscious as an unattainable ideal "something too good to be true."

In reality it is man's true destiny flashed to him from the Infinite intelligence which is within himself. Many people have brought disaster into their lives through idle words. Impressing the subconscious mind with a picture of lack and limitation will bring you the same.
