Lets talk about it, for people that agree with or somewhat agree with, to share their experiences, not for debating if it is or isn’t.
Here is my take. All of reality is created by mind, and all mind is a facet of One-Mind, singularity, God. Does God have a Supreme Personality?
Therefore, as creations in the “Likeness and Image” of God, we have the same faculties of creation, however, we create within the scope of awareness that we have. For those who are not in the higher dimensions of causal reality where they can see directly how thoughts create forms, they must work with more primitive tools, yet, it is still prayer that is the most powerful and therefore simple tool of all.
So, the Law of Attraction states that we attract experiences into reality based upon the content of our thoughts + the vibration of our emotions.
This is easy enough to see. A dog is barking, someone has a headache, they yell at the dog, another person feels light and happy, they don’t notice. Another person goes to discipline the dog, another, to pet it and treat it nicely. Some will speak smoothly to the dogs, others rigidly train their behavior.
Each of these people has different stories. The angry person : “Oh the damn dog is always barking!”. The happy person “What dog? Oh,I didn’t even notice.” The disciplinarian: “Those owners ought to be ashamed!.” Etc, etc, and each of these people lach onto and form as sculptors statues of what they wish to see, ignoring any contrary evidence to be cast away with the chisel of their one-pointed perspective.
Like seeks like, birds of a feather flock together, they say. A dog whisperer looks at dogs far differently than a dog lover, who might find even “atrocious” (to the whisperer) behaviors “cute.”
Look at Angelica from the Rugrats as a pristine example, everything diabolical she does is, in some way, cute to her parents, who have enabled these personality traits.
But so the metaphysics, the issues people stumble with: so if I think about getting a Ferrari, it comes?
yes ? No ?
Does God oversee? Does the unvierse stop and say “approved” and “denied”? If so, why ? Karma? The law of attraction barely talks about the law of karma, it seems.
So, lets get into this.
Abraham-Hicks tells us that everything we ask for is given, every-time, however the thought forms must be sustained over a period of time to become dominant enough parts of our reality that they manifest in the physical dimension. They say that 17 seconds of focus upon a thought-form is enough to set it in motion. The only reason requests aren’t granted is due to cognitive dissonance, doubting, or not actually caring enough to keep the request alive. “Oh I’d like a pizza… wait… never mind I’m full.”
Have you created things that you KNOW, were miraculous?
Share your stories on creation, and your ideas on this law of attraction.
I created a cat once. I was in love with a girl named Kat and I was so happy, more happy than I’d ever been, that “for once in my life” [the attitude of someone experiencing lack*[color=darkblue]]I had been “brave enough” [the attitude of the fearful] to tell a girl I liked her, and asked her out to coffee, and she said yes. Ecstatic in bed, thanking God, for hours and hours on end, feeling relief, release, joy, light-heartedness, the dissolving of terrible pains that I didn’t even know vexed me, imagining our perfect life together. This did not work, and vexed I prayed often during the night about Kat, and about what I wanted from a girlfriend. One night I got it into my head “I want to meet a Reiki healer in the astral planes” and I said often that I wanted my girlfriend to be root chakra present but still spiritual. I prattled on and on about this, and about 3 am I hear a cat meow outside my apartment.
I think nothing much of it other than “weird” and go back to sleep. Many hours later I get up and go outside and immediately a cat runs right into my apartment from nowhere, and sits on my lap, and I play with it and cuddle with it. Now, this was not a nromal cat. The cat was an energy healer. It would beam tremendous amounts of cat energy into my root chakra from time to time, strong vibrations, strong enough that hours later if I were far away and closed my eyes, i would see cat stripes everywhere in the astral dimensions, and feel that my body was a cat’s body. Now to take this even further, the cats eyes were exactly like the eyes of my taiji teacher, and so though I never named him, I thought of giving him the name of my teacher.[/color]
Paramahansa Yogananda talks in Autobiography of a Yogi about how masters can tune into the persistent thoughts of others and grant their wishes in this way. He cites incidenceof a man obsessed with cauliflower or some type of food, which he then led the man to steal from their temple in order to teach his disciples a lesson about locking doors.
*[lack] Luke : 19:26"I tell you that to everyone who has, more shall be given, but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away.
Now, supposing Master Jesus was right, these people are right, that we get everything we ask for, what do you want, and, has it come? Will it come? Something as simple as financial abundance, is only wrong if it is for selfish reasons, no ? I would like financial abundance, so that I can travel, have some nice simple possessions like an electric sitar? Crystal singing bowls, which can help aide the spiritual clarity of myself and many others. Seems nice, so.
What do you think?
Now Jesus says, lets abandon and give away all possessions, if we do this it may be easier to attain spiritual realization, and yet if we do this it will be harder to help teach others the way. If we wish to liberate all sentient beings from Samsara, and we live as an ascetic, how will we teach the average American how to meditate, without convincing them to be ascetic with us ?
The law of attraction I sometimes bang my head thinking “why ask anything at all?” hence he says “think that the father knows not what you are thinking? Then simply pray 'Our father, who art in heaven…” (paraphrased)
and to be as the lillies, and the crows, for they are not concerned with such matters, so it seems as if asking for anything is inferior to living int he way of the Tao, which does not ask for anything at all, yet still receives. yet to ask or not ask seems to denote that we have “free will” which is another level of inquiry for “my mind”
Hitherto I extend one function of asking to the Unvierse:
Dear Universe, please grant me an electric sitar, and a suitable cable for it.
