This is being reposted to restore the link to this original post. The thoughts you have on a daily basis; the emotions you experience; the words you speak; the questions you ask; the expectations you hold onto; the beliefs you adopt; the values you try to live up to; the people you talk to; the habits you indulge in or choose not to indulge in; the gratitude or anger you feel, etc, all create a chain-reaction of events that have shaped your life as you know it. Therefore, in order to create a different life, you will need to start doing things differently then you have been doing them in the past, or otherwise you will keep living through the same patterns day-after-day and nothing will ever change.
I don't necessarily believe in the law of attraction, but some of the other laws seem to make sense to me. Prentice Mulford , a Californian author and humorist, used the term law of Attraction in his essays Some Laws of Health and Beauty and Good And Ill Effects of Thought, written in 1891.
It is a testament to the extraordinary scope of The Origins of Totalitarianism that Arendt reveals the hidden philosophy of the bourgeoisie 200 pages earlier in a discussion of Thomas Hobbes, the only great philosopher to whom the bourgeoisie can rightly and exclusively lay claim.” Boiled down to its essentials, the Hobbesian philosophy of the bourgeoisie is simple: if man is actually driven by nothing but his individual interests, desire for power must be the fundamental passion of man.” All limits — laws and morals — are bothersome restrictions on the human drive to acquire power.
The first real mention of the actual term Law of Attraction” other than Hinduism, is in a book on esoteric mysteries, written by Helena Blavatsky, in 1877. Bringing these books together was the idea that sparked the Law of Attraction Haven. If we keep moving the bar and making multiple excuses why the LOA isn't working - we don't know how to use it, it's too powerful, there are secrets we don't understand, we weren't focused enough, etc.
According to The Secret,” our thoughts and feelings attract a corresponding energy to ourselves. The law of attraction is the name given to the belief that like attracts like” and check here that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results.
I find it interesting that people take a particular law, usually attraction, and then become disallusioned when attraction does not seem to work in their lives. The Secret seems to have been very much influenced by a book published in 1910 called The Science Of Getting Rich, written by Wallace Wattles.
Therefore, what you have then, is an industry built on fooling uninformed people that there's some mystic force (A.K.A the law of attraction) that is beyond human understanding, and that learning to use it is like some martial art practice that requires skill and virtue.
(sometimes referred to as the Law of Opulence or Success.) By creating visualizations of abundance in our lives we draw this energy of success into our reality. You can bring it into being, through your consistent thinking of perfection.” Reality check -life is not perfect.
I would bet money that if you know enough to know that you don't know how the universe works — if you can acknowledge that our understanding of the universe's systems of delivery are tenuous at best — you will find that cultivating positive expecations alone will make a concrete difference in how life goes for you, especially if you are habitually prone to negative expectations like I am. There are a thousand ways it could work, but it will work.
He shows how the human mind, through thoughts and feelings, creates the exact circumstances of every person's life. The functioning of this law is instantaneous for people of God-realization. His book The Science of Getting Rich” is even to this day very readable and inspirational.
It is commonplace these days to hear about the power of positive thinking. The following three steps are critical in mastering the Law of Attraction in Islam, and in consciously cultivating a life of choice in alignment with truth, and a life experience based in divine purpose, peace and prosperity.
