Summary

Most people consider life a battle, but it is not a battle, it is a game.

It is a game, however, which cannot be played successfully without the knowledge of spiritual law, and the Old and the New Testaments give the rules of the game with wonderful clearness. Jesus Christ taught that it was a great game of giving and receiving.

"Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap." This means that 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; if he gives criticism, he will receive criticism; if he lies he will be lied to; if he cheats he will be cheated. We are taught also, that the imaging faculty plays a leading part in the game of life.

"Keep thy heart (or imagination) with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life." (Prov. 4:23)

This means that what man images, sooner or later externalizes in his affairs. I know of a man who feared a certain disease. It was a very rare disease and difficult to get, but he pictured it continually and read about it until it manifested in his body, and he died, the victim of distorted imagination.

So we see, 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.

Substitute the word 'Universe' for 'God'

Loved this ❤....everything I have read or listened to in respect of the law of attraction derives from this book, it all makes perfect sense.

The Secret but more Christian

A classic in the “Law Of Attraction” canon. A bit heavier with the Christian stuff, so if that Jesus jive annoys you, you’d do better to stick with the more secular stuff.

The narrator here sounds like he’s playing on 33 RPM when he’s supposed to be at 45. I guess the intention is he’s supposed to sound slightly sinister or something and maybe that would work more for a darker occult or horror narrative, but here it seems a bit odd.

Very Religious Self-Help Book

I thought it was okay. But, for those who are not Christian, this book is not for you all. The book is filled with many good points, it's just it was a little too churchy and inaccurate with some of the information.

With all that said, I think it could be helpful for many.

Powerful

That this book was written so long ago, and remains relevant today is amazing. The voice of the reader is soothing and I will be listening again to absorb more meaning from the work. I highly recommend this book and app

Would prefer this style of voice to be more fitting with the authenticity of the great book.
