In today’s post we’re going to examine Point of Attraction, which is central to the teachings of the Law of Attraction. We might also call it our perspective. Regardless of what term we use, it is from our personal vantage point that we draw more of the same into our life, for we realize that like attracts like.
To make this more clear, I’m going to share a short passage from the King James Bible, because it so concisely explains the subject. It is Mathew 7:7: Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: I realize that many people may question the truth of this, especially if they have been asking, seeking, and knocking for years without experiencing the results they desire. If so, this may be due–at least in my opinion–to a misunderstanding of the passage. I believe that the passage refers to a change that occurs within ourselves, and not a blessing from the world around us. It is when we change–toward a wiser perspective aligned with natural laws–that our results also improve.
The teachings are essentially about changing you, and the way that you look at the world. When we do that, the results that we experience in the world also seem to change. I use the word seem because nothing in truth has truly changed, but by choosing a more positive focus we will definitely experience better results. Basically, we will have trained ourselves to attract the good that was always present…outside of our consciousness.
Now, back to the biblical verse…and logic. Doesn’t it make sense that if we’re asking (speaking) in a certain manner (our Point of Attraction) that we will receive more of the same? Doesn’t it make sense that if we’re seeking (looking) in a certain manner (our Point of Attraction) that we will find more of the same? And, likewise, doesn’t it make sense that if we’re knocking (acting) in a certain manner (our Point of Attraction) that matching actions will be opened up to us?
With this knowledge–and the awareness that we are free to choose our point of attraction–we can understand the importance of wisely choosing our viewpoint of the world. When we change from a negative to a positive perspective, we are focusing our mind to receive better results. We’re simply learning how to train our focus.
Understand, also, that our mindset regarding love, kindness, compassion, generosity, prosperity, and positivity are points of attraction. So are indifference, meanness, ill will, selfishness, poverty, and negativity. Exercise your freedom. Wisely. It’s your life and your point of attraction.
Dare to dream.
