There are million of people in this world that feel life comes at them with little or no control and they have no choice but accept the conditions before them as victims and lament about the grief and pain they experience.
There are also millions that believe they are in total control of their lives and are competing with the the rest of the world.
Then there are those that feel they are uber-responsible for what happens around them, and it is their responsibility to take care of others.
Well I believe that all of this is true and none of this is true. new age, new thought philosophy preaches the Unity of all of life. A few years back a book hit the market explaining the LAW OF ATTRACTION.
This “LAW” details how what we believe materializes in our life. This validates the fact that we have control and dispels the victim-hood many feel is a never ending paradigm that they are trapped in. The only issue I take with this, is that many an unenlightened folk, may have interpreted this “law” as a genie in a bottle. They now stand in front of the mirror reciting affirmations of themselves being rich, fit, popular, charismatic, sex gods that are loved by millions and will live forever. Once the reality sets in that these things simply are not going to come to be, they become despondent, and feel they were sold snake oil. I am concerned about this prevailing situation as I am an advocate for all things LOA. I just understand that there is more to living from intention, creating your life on your terms, than just paying lip service to believing in fairy tales.
The Law of Attraction is absolutely working in all of us all the time. The life that unfolds before us is a product of:
- Our choices
- Our perspectives
- Our beliefs
- Our fears
- Our desires
- Our actions
- Our words
- And mostly OUR EXPECTATIONS
There are many spiritual, mental, physical and philosophical LAWS that are entwined with the LOA that we need to understand. The first thing we need to grasp is that what we desire is not actually our desire. Everything we seek is rooted in the belief that this ” thing, condition, situation, status of life, whatever” will bring us happiness and freedom from want & fear.
For instance, the desire for bundles of money is born of the fear of not having enough of the stuff we think we need: food, shelter, entertainment, friends, attention and security.
The LOA is such that the believing in the reality of your desire, means to be feeling joy at the very thought of it. When our desire is coming from a place of fear, panic, worry, and dread, we have already sabotaged the level of faith needed to manifest the desire. Fear and faith cannot exist simultaneously such as light & dark, up & down, in & out.
The LOA is much more complex than we are led to believe. yes, if you truly, truly, at the core of your being expect a condition to materialize, it cannot NOT happen. That truly, truly expect part is the hobgoblin of the failure of millions to think they are having success with the LOA.
We need to come to the realization that all of life is connected, we are each and integral part of this “whole” just as are limbs and organs are a part of our physical body. Then we have to understand that we are here to add to the success of the entirety of life by making a contribution. Our gift, or talent is what we are meant to use a the puzzle piece to put in place. Then, the greater the impact we have on the collective, the more that will come back to us. karma, or as you sw=ow so shall you reap, comes into play. Then we need to have the calm resolve of knowing that simply by doing our part, all of our needs will be met, then we will not have fear. That is when we may understand that that bundle of money we thought was our wildest dream, was only an antidote for our fear. We can then change our dream to wanting to impact more lives in a positive way, (regardless the pay day).
That is when we can truly, truly believe in it being so. Then, perhaps, the karma of impacting thousands of lives will end bring you the bundle of cash you were no longer chasing.
That is another law, you have to give it away to keep it, and not want it to get, I call it the law of contradiction.
When the dust settles it all boils down to : Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and all will be well. WE ARE ABSOLUTELY CREATING THE CONDITIONS THAT UNFOLD BEFORE US. IT MAY NOT ALWAYS BE OUR DESIRE. IT CAN VERY WELL BE WHAT WE FEAR. WHATEVER WE FOCUS ON THE MOST, SPEND MORE TIME SPEAKING, AND THINKING ABOUT, IS WHAT THE UNIVERSE SEND US.
This is a very exciting topic to explore. I suggest you do!
