The Law Of Attraction

The ‘law of attraction’ is like attracts like. It simply says that you attract into your life whatever you think about. This applies to everything, regardless of how insignificant the thing might be. Anything from a global empire to a empty parking space can be achieved far more easily if you visualize a successful outcome from the start.

Don’t believe me?  Try this exercise.

Pick something you do regularly and find an absolute nightmare. Then before you do whatever this thing is again start visualizing a successful outcome.

Let’s say that usually when you go shopping in your car you find it impossible to find a parking space. But this time, before you even get into your car, start seeing that empty car parking space.

  • Visualize it
  • See yourself effortlessly finding it
  • Experience the wave of relief was over you as drive into that space – your car parking space.

When I was told about this technique. I thought it was crazy. I mean, how could it be possible to conjure up a car parking space by just thinking about it? To my amazement it worked. I couldn't believe how easy it was to find that space.

There’s nothing magical about it. It simply is that we achieve what we expect to get. So if we start out with a negative view about something, usually we’ll have a bad experience and prove ourselves right. Maybe that’s why I’m not getting any job offers at the minute.

When you start visualizing success, all sorts of positive changes come about. Instead of looking for all the reasons as to why we should be unhappy, we concentrate on the possibilities and our subconscious begins to work in actively seeking out ways of achieving what we want.

The bottom line is – you are what you think! Think negatively, and you’ll be a negative person. On the other hand, start visualizing successful outcomes in everything you do and you’ll start seeing powerful, positive changes in your life.

If you try this and it doesn’t work the first time then don’t give up. It may take time and be prepared to suspend and resist your inbuilt cynicism.

God Is Dead

The word God has becoming meaningless and empty through thousands of years of misuse. By misuse, I mean that people who have never even glimpsed the realm of the sacred, the infinite vastness behind the word. The misuse gives rise to absurd beliefs and egoic delusions.

The word God is a concept. When the name is uttered, a mental image is created, perhaps an old man with a white beard, but still a mental representation of something or someone outside you.

Neither God or any other word describe the reality beyond the word, the only question is it a help or a hindrance in enabling you to experience that towards which it points. Does it point beyond itself to the transcendental reality, or does it lend itself too easily to becoming no more than an idea in your head you believe in, a mental idol?
