The Game of Life And How to Play It-Chapter 7-Love By Florence Scovel Shinn
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."
Real love is selfless and free from fear. It pours itself out upon the object of its affection, without demanding any return. Its joy is in the joy of giving. Love is God in manifestation, and the strongest magnetic force in the universe. Pure, unselfish love draws to itself its own; it does not need to seek or demand. Scarcely anyone has the faintest conception of real love. Man is selfish, tyrannical or fearful in his affections, thereby losing the thing he loves.
Jealousy is the worst enemy of love, for the imagination runs riot, seeing the loved one attracted to another, and invariably these fears objectify if they are not neutralized.
In this part you will find that one of the secrets to success, one of the methods of organizing victory, one of the accomplishments of the Master Mind is to think big thoughts.
You will also find that everything which we hold in our consciousness for any length of time becomes impressed upon our sub-consciousness and so becomes a pattern which the creative energy will weave into our life and the environment. This is the secret of the wonderful power of prayer.
We know that the universe is governed by law. That for every effect there must be a cause, and that the same cause, under the same conditions, will invariably produce the same effect. Consequently, if prayer has ever been answered, it will always be answered, if the proper conditions are complied with. This must necessarily be true; otherwise the universe would be a chaos instead of a cosmos. The answer to prayer is therefore subject to law, and this law is definite, exact and scientific, just as are the laws governing gravitation and electricity. An understanding of this law takes the foundation of Christianity out of the realm of superstition and credulity and places it upon the firm rocks of scientific understanding.
But, unfortunately there are comparatively few persons who know how to pray. They understand that there are laws governing electricity, mathematics and chemistry, but for some inexplicable reason, it never seems to occur to them that there are also spiritual laws, and that these laws are also definite, scientific, exact and operate with immutable precision.
