Quotes From “The Power Of The Spoken Word”

Author: Florence Scovel Shinn

We have the power of choice — we may follow the magic path of intuition, or the long and hard road of experience, by following the reasoning mind. By following the super-conscious we attain the heights. In the intuition, are the pictures of eternal youth and eternal life, where death itself is overcome. We have the power to impress the subconscious mind with the picture of Eternal youth and Eternal life. The subconscious, being simply power without direction, carries out the idea, and we have our bodies transmuted into the body which can never die.

There is a Spiritual prototype of your body and affairs. I call it the Divine Design and this Divine Design is a Perfect Idea in your superconscious mind. Most people are far from expressing the Divine Idea of their bodies and affairs. They have stamped the contrary pictures of disease, old age and death upon the subconscious, and it has carefully carried out their orders. Now we must give a new order; “Let me now express the Divine Idea in my mind, body and affairs.” If you will impress the subconscious by repeating this statement you will be amazed at the changes which soon take place. You will be bombarded by new ideas and new ideals. A chemical change will take place in your body. Your environment will change for the better, for you are expanding rapidly into the Divine Plan, where all conditions are permanently perfect.

We should all build up in consciousness a picture of peace, harmony and beauty and some day it will push itself into visibility.

This God-power is within you, your superconscious mind. It is the realm of inspiration, revelation and illumination. It is the realm of miracles and wonders. Quick and seemingly impossible changes take place for your good. A door opens where there were no doors. Supply appears from hidden and unexpected channels, for “God has weapons ye know not of.”

To work with God-power you must give it right of way and still the reasoning mind. The instant you ask, Infinite Intelligence knows the way of fulfillment. Man’s part is to rejoice and give thanks, and act his Faith.

only active Faith impresses the subconscious, and unless you impress the subconscious, there are no results.

When you have the fixed idea that there is only one Power in the universe, God-power, all appearance of evil will disappear from your world.

In getting a demonstration we must acknowledge only one Power. Evil comes from man’s own “vain imaginings.” Withdraw all power from evil and it is powerless to hurt.

When you are undisturbed by a situation it falls away of its own weight.

Your life is out-pictured by the sum-total of your subconscious beliefs. Wherever you go, you take these conditions with you.

Be strong! Fear not; Fear is man’s only adversary.

Fear robs you of all power, for you have lost your contact with the Universal Power House.

A hairdresser once told me that she knew a woman, whose grey hair returned to its natural color when she stopped worry.

Fear and worry are twins and are the same thing.

Infinite Intelligence knows the way out. Infinite Intelligence knows where the supply is, for every demand. But we must trust It, keep our poise, and give It right of way.

Bernard Shaw, in his book Back to Methuselah, says: “Adam invented murder, birth and death and all negative conditions.” It was the development of the reasoning mind. Of course, Adam stands for Generic Mind. In the Garden of Eden stage, man functioned only in the superconscious. Whatever he desired or required was always at hand. With the development of the reasoning mind came the fall of man. He reasoned himself into lack, limitations and failure. He earned his bread by the sweat of the brow, instead of being Divinely provided for.

Man has power and dominion over the elements. We should be able “to rebuke the wind and the waves.”

We should be able to stop floods and epidemics, “For man is given power and dominion over all created things.”

Active Faith impresses the subconscious with expectance and you keep your contact with Universal Intelligence.

We are indeed living magic lives—guided, protected and provided for. All fear would be banished forever with a realization of this amazing system the Universal has provided for man.

The subconscious has no sense of humor. People joke destructively about themselves and the subconscious takes it seriously.

You cannot always control your thought but you can control your word, and eventually the word impresses the subconscious and wins out.

The awakened man knows only one power, God, and one condition, good.

You must be immune to all discouragement and adverse appearances.

We must stop planning, plotting and scheming and let Infinite Intelligence solve the problem in Its own way. God-power is subtle, silent and irresistible. It levels mountains and fills in valleys and knows no defeat! Our part is to prepare for our blessings and follow our intuitive leads. We now give Infinite Intelligence right-of-way.

Fear is man’s only enemy. It is faith turned upside-down.

“Courage has genius, magic and power in it.”

What a beautiful world this would be if all anxiety and fear were blotted out. These twins, anxiety and worry, have made men slaves and are destroyers of health, wealth and happiness. There is only one way of getting rid of fear—and that is, to transmute it into faith; for fear is the opposite of faith.

No matter how many times you fail, try it again. Soon you will acquire the habit of poise and balance. Then the world is yours. You will walk joyfully into your kingdom.

Quotes From “Ashtavakra Gita”

that joy, supreme joy, and awareness is what you are, so be happy.

Your real nature is as the one perfect, free, and actionless consciousness, the all-pervading witness — unattached to anything, desireless and at peace. It is from illusion that you seem to be involved in samsara.

Quotes From “The Secret Door To Success”

Change your expectancies and you change your conditions.

Begin to act as if you expected success, happiness and abundance; prepare for your good.

Do something to show you expect it to come, active faith alone, will impress the subconscious.

Quotes from “The Game of Life and How To Play It”

The object of the game of life is to see clearly one’s good and to obliterate all mental pictures of evil. This must be done by impressing the subconscious mind with a realization of good.

When the subconscious is flooded with the perfect ideas of the superconscious, God and man are one.
