Quotes From “The Secret Door To Success”

Author: Florence Scovel Shinn

The walls of lack and delay now crumble away, and I enter my Promised Land, under grace.

only those who have prepared for their good (thereby showing active faith) will bring the manifestation to pass.

When ye pray believe ye have it. When ye pray ACT as if you have already received.

Evil destroys itself, for it is a cross current against universal order, and the way of the transgressor is hard.

Faith is expectancy, “According to your faith, be it done unto you.” We might say, according to your expectancies be it done unto you so, what are you expecting?

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.

The soul is the subconscious mind, and the psalmist was telling his subconscious to expect everything directly from the universal; not to depend upon doors and channels; “My expectation is from Him.” God cannot fail, for “His ways are ingenious, His methods are sure.” You can expect any seemingly impossible Good from God; if you do not limit the channels.

Get the realization that every blessing is Good in action, and see God in every face and good in every situation: This makes you master of all conditions.

Now think of the blessings which seem so far off, and begin to expect them now, under grace, in an unexpected way; for God works in unexpected ways, His wonders to perform.

I was told that there are three thousand promises in the Bible. Let us now expect all these blessings to come to pass. Among them we are promised Riches and Honor, Eternal Youth (“Your flesh shall become as a little child’s) and Eternal Life, “death itself shall be overcome.” Christianity is founded upon the forgiveness of sins and an empty tomb. We now know that all these things are scientifically possible. As we call on the law of forgiveness, we become free from mistakes and the consequences of mistakes. (“Though your sins be as scarlet ye shall be washed whiter than wool.”) Then our bodies will be bathed in Light, and express the “body electric,” which is incorruptible and indestructible, pure substance, expressing perfection.

Spiritual development means the ability to stand still, or stand aside, and let Infinite Intelligence lift your burdens and fight your battles. When the burden of resentment is lifted, you experience a sense of relief! You have a kindly feeling for everyone, and all the organs of your body begin to function properly.

quoting Albert Edward Day, D.D. reads, “That loving our enemies is good for our spiritual health is widely known and accepted. But that negation and poisonous emotions destroy physical health, is a relatively new discovery. The problem of health is often an emotional one. Wrong emotions entertained and repeated are potent causes of illness.

No man even for his body’s sake can afford to indulge in hatred. It is like repeated doses of poison. When you are urged to get rid of fear, you are not listening to a moon-struck idealist; rather you are hearing counsel that is as significant for health as advice about diet.”

Non-resistance is an art. When acquired, The World is Yours! So many people are trying to force situations. Your lasting good will never come through forcing personal will.

You are completely demagnetized when you desire something too intensely. You worry, fear, and agonize. There is an occult law of indifference: “None of these things move me.”

In the absolute, man is outside of time and space.

With the realization of wealth, we receive the gift of wealth. With the realization of success, we receive the gift of success, for success and abundance are states of mind.

Be undisturbed by a situation, and it will fall away of its own weight. There is an occult law of indifference. “None of these things moves me.”“None of these things disturbs me;” we might say in modern language. When you can no longer be disturbed, all disturbance will disappear from the external.

It takes determination and eternal vigilance to check up on words and thoughts. Thoughts of fear, failure, resentment and ill-will must be dissolved and dissipated.

You nourish negative thoughts by giving them your attention. Use the occult law of indifference and refuse to be interested.

The ground I am on is holy ground. I now expand rapidly into the divine plan of my life, where all conditions are permanently perfect.

Your world is a world of crystallized ideas, crystallized words.

do not be fooled by the darkness before the dawn.

We have all a bank we can draw upon, the Bank of the Imagination. Let us imagine ourselves rich, well and happy: imagine all our affairs in divine order; but leave the way of fulfillment to Infinite Intelligence.

So let us become Miracle Conscious: prepare for miracles, expect miracles, and we are then inviting them into our lives.

All suffering comes from the violation of intuition.

In demonstrating our good, we must look away from adverse appearances, “Judge not by appearances.”

The righteous desire might be called, an echo from the Infinite. It is already a perfect idea in divine mind.

You will then lead a magic life, for in the divine design, all conditions are permanently perfect.

No matter how impossible the situation seems, Infinite Intelligence knows the way out.

Make your contact with Infinite Intelligence, (the God within) and all appearance of evil evaporates, for it comes from man’s “vain imaginings.”

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 Power Of The Spoken Word”

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.

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.
