Katherine Hurst Can Be Fun For Anyone
This is being reposted to restore the link to this original post. To call something magic when really it's just complicated is doing everyone an injustice because it's spreading the acceptance of willful ignorance and therefore hobbling our future efforts to understand the world and make positive changes. Most of these promoted New Thought,” Law of Attraction practices are not new at all.
I used to reason that it made no sense to act as though the universe heeded the Law of Attraction unless I knew that it did. My next book will elucidate Kay to Achieve Principles including the Principle of Attraction. Please tell me why you don't believe that Positive only attracts Positive is not an essential component of the LOA and what original sources you are referencing to support this claim.
Law of attraction is 21st century hoax. Even before The Secret was turned into a book or a movie, and long before it became the most talked about phenomenon on Oprah, I have been blessed with the intimate understanding of Law of Attraction. Fundamentally, this law describes the compelling force of attraction that holds our solar system to the Sirian.
For example, fear of starving in the winter is what propelled people to save and store food in the summer, and so on. The mindset that The Secret promotes takes this fundamental element of survival out of practice and could potentially lead to loss of these necessary fear instincts through disuse.
So, it is clear that when actual scientists get involved in the discussion, Byrne's ideas carry no weight at all; but it's not just scientists who state that The Secret Law of Attraction doesn't work; studies have shown that positive thinking can actually be detrimental to achieving goals.
Never do anything that your reason Law of attraction origins should tell you is an incredibly stupid decision like offering up your soul to some entity in exchange for power (they can usually take what they want by bruteforce anyways but some are weak and don't want to encounter any resistance in trying to possess or influence you so they'd love some idiot to offer themselves up willingly).
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.
The law of attraction is a natural, universal law, much like gravity. People love it or hate it. Reading your article has given me a much better understanding of why that is. But it also conveys, very well, I might add, that no one can ever be truly enlightened to how the universe works.
And there are other reasons why people believe in the Law of Attraction. Back in the first decade of the 1900's, William Walker Atkinson wrote a book called Thought Vibration of the Law of Attraction in the Thought World which, as the title implies, is about the Law of Attraction as it is explained in The Secret.
There are actions, sounds, techniques, mental energy and symbols which when understood, will enable one to manifest first energy (love, more joy, peace, etc.) into one's aura, then with practice and increased love held in the heart and emotional body - physical objects.
Translated to the law of attraction language, this means that if you send out positive thoughts and emotions, you will receive positiveness - and the other way around: bad actions are the result of bad intentions and bad thoughts, and they attract more of the same for you.
