I think that many people who are new to the Law of Attraction may disbelieve its truth for one reason: It just seems too simple. As though they are being asked to believe in a fairy tale. Easy beyond words. They may believe: Really, if changing my thinking was all that was required to live a better life, everyone would be doing it!
The truth of the matter, however, is that making great improvements in our lives really is that simple. When we change our thinking, everything in our life must also change. The greats of history–such as Confucious, Loa Tzu, Jesus, and Buddha–taught us this; and wise men and women are still sharing the same message!
Many people, however, hold the mistaken belief that change has to be difficult. Or even impossible. They believe that life has dealt them a hard hand, and that they have to play it. Forever! That belief, however, is a fallacy. We may throw down our old beliefs–which are no more than a collection of ingrained thoughts–and pick up new ones at any time. True, certain physical realities may remain the same; but when we view life from a different perspective, this alone will inspire us to use our abilities in new and creative ways.
The beauty of the Law of Attraction is that we can deliberately put it to use here and now. We need not wait one minute longer. There is no line up. We can stop waiting for the world to get better and make a better choice…now. We can accept that it is our impression of the world, our attitude, our way of being. The seat of power is within us. As many motivational speakers have said: No one can do your push ups for you. The good news, however, is that we can do them for ourselves!
Too simple? Not really. The philosophy may be simple, but the practice–at least at first–involves mental effort. It requires us to be on patient guard, over ourselves. As we adopt this new way of being, we will witness real changes in our life. We will benefit in ways that may surprise. We’re going to grow stronger, too. When the going gets tough, we’re going to keep going! Positively. We’ll also realize that the quality of our future depends on the quality of what we’re thinking now. The future belongs to us. The question we may ask ourselves: What are we going to make of it?
Dare to dream (and care for one another).
