Y E S ! Bless Your Enemy!


Bless your enemy,
and you rob him of his ammunition.
His arrows will be transmuted into blessings.
This law is true of nations as well as individuals.
vvvv
Bless a nation,
send love and good-will to every inhabitant,
and it is robbed of its power to harm.
~ Florence S. Shinn
(1871-1940)

Her metaphysical works began with her self-published The Game of Life and How to Play it in 1925. Your Word is Your Wand was published in 1928 and The Secret Door to Success in 1940. The Game of Life and How to Play it includes quotes from the Bible and anecdotal explanations of the author's understanding of God and man. Her philosophy centers on the power of positive thought and usually includes instructions for verbal or physical affirmation.
A typical Scovel Shinn piece of advice would be "It is safe to say that all sickness and unhappiness come from the violation of the law of love. A new commandment I give unto you, 'Love one another,' and in the Game of Life, love or good-will takes every trick."
