If Life is a Game, Do You Know How to Play It?

By Dr. Jim Turrell

Life is a constant discovery of how love functions and creates our good. In tribute to this idea, I will be giving a series of six talks, starting today on May 14th, based on a classic book in our lexicon of favorites by Florence Scovel Shinn, The Game of Life and How to Play It. Bob Groux, who has been reading this book asked if I was familiar with it. It’s been a long time since I read it, but I was so glad Bob reminded me of how brilliant Ms. Shinn was in sharing her wisdom.

Florence starts her book by explaining that it is more productive to see life as a game and not a battle. However, this is a game “which cannot be played successfully without the knowledge of spiritual law.”

In addition, on Mother’s Day I will be speaking about the importance of empowering women. I do not believe that we will have world peace until women have an equal and positive standing in the world. Thus, a good deal of my ministry is devoted to empowering women. One of the most important components to achieving women’s equality is the feeling of confidence that only a strong lineage can provide. Unfortunately, women do not have a documented and widely known historical lineage; instead, women have a very deep and subconscious memory of being motherless children.

While this may not be obvious to most, it is to those who see the lack of confidence many women have in their judgment and capacity to step forward in a man’s world and claim their space. On Mother’s day, I will address the origin of these feelings; and how to create the consciousness where they can no longer exist. The second talk will be about The Law of Prosperity and how to apply it. The third talk will be about the Power of the Spoken Word and the Law of Nonresistance.

The last three talks will be about Karma and Forgiveness, Impressing the Subconscious with Love, and Perfect Self-Expression and the power of Denials and Affirmations.

All the talks will come with two or three self-investigative questions that you can ponder each week. As Florence says on the last page of her book: The simple rules are fearless faith, nonresistance and love! “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Join me and bless the world with your prosperous presence.
