Law of Attraction Luggage

Law of Attraction Luggage

Bob is a business man. He’s forty-two, married, and the father of three children. He has worked for the same company in the same city for almost fifteen years. He lives in a nice bungalow in the suburbs. He pays his bills, does as others expect of him, and leads (as Henry David Thoreau so eloquently expressed) a life of quiet desperation. From Monday to Friday, week after week, he drives forty-five kilometers to his office and begins yet another day of tasks that he believes he must perform. And every day, he takes with him one piece of luggage–his mind–in which he carries the following:

  • If I didn’t have bad luck, I wouldn’t have any luck at all.
  • Life is never going to get any better!
  • It’s too late for me to change.
  • It’s all downhill after forty.
  • I’m trapped.
  • Life is hard.

However, one night, after a particularly grueling day at the office, Bob goes to bed early and falls into a deep sleep. In his sleep–in a dream that’s clear, distinct, and real–a voice informs him that if he changes his thinking, his life will change! The voice also tells him that he can set aside the worn out contents of his luggage at any time–that he is free to think, believe, and act how he wishes! In his new luggage, he excitedly packs the following:

  • I easily attract great health, great wealth, and great success!
  • I’m surrounded by endless opportunities!
  • I’m free–to think, to believe, to act!
  • I have faith in the goodness of life!
  • It’s never too late!
  • Life is on my side!

When Bob awakens the following morning, he feels more alive than he has felt in years. The world seems new, vibrantly alive with possibilities. Something within him has changed: He feels awakened to the glorious newness of the day; to a world of opportunity just waiting to be discovered! And fortunately for Bob, that clear and inspiring dream in which he realized his own freedom stays with him for the rest of his life. In particular, he remembers this: If I change my thinking, my life will change.

Dare to dream.

A Quote For Creators

A Valuable Quote

Anaïs Nin (1903 – 1977) was an essayist, short story writer, and memoirist. Under the Glass Bell, which is a collection of short stories, is thought by many to be one of her finest works. A quote attributed to her, which reads: “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are,” resonates with a teaching from the Law of Attraction: “As within, so without.”

At first glance, especially for individuals accustomed to viewing the outer world as fixed and unchanging, Anaïs Nin’s quote may seem bizarre, even absurd. Many–if not most–people may view themselves as remote observers, having little or no affect upon their environment. For the purpose of learning more about deliberate creation, however, we’re going to journey inward and just consider that changing our viewpoint could, in fact, change the quality of our life.

The implications of her quote–if we accept it as truth and make appropriate changes–are considerable. With just a little introspection, we may realize that all of us bring a unique perspective that skews how we experience the world. That only makes sense, for we are unique. Some of us have been raised in loving families; some raised with less than optimal funds; some in abusive environments; some in lavish lifestyles. That which is normal to one may seem totally abnormal to another. With this in mind, we understand that what we actually experience in life is intimately connected to the attitudes we hold at the level of being.

In an earlier article (Become a Better You, March, 2016), I related that Jim Rohn, a renowned motivational speaker and businessman, shared how his life improved dramatically after a mentor told him that his outer results would change when he changed within. This registered deeply in Mr. Rohn’s consciousness; and he went on to achieve great success, both personally and professionally. To his credit, he shared his knowledge to help many people improve their lives. The list of others–such as Bob Proctor, Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, and T.Harvey Eker–who have stated the same truth is both long and impressive. That they have achieved tremendous success is not by chance.

What I wish to point out, is that all of these people are sharing a similar message: “As within, so without.” Contemplate this and allow its importance to register fully. Let a question dawn in your awareness: “Could it actually be that if I change my thinking that I could achieve greater success on the outside? In my circumstances? In my health? wealth? relationships? If true, it would mean that the quality of life is within our control!

Such a realization leaves Fate in the dust! No more must we hope and beg and pray that life will improve! With awareness of this truth, we realize that cause and effect are working in and through us, according to Law! We may leave doubt, worry, and anxiety behind; and replace them with a knowing that achievement of our goals is truly possible. Think about it: An inner transformation may be all that’s separating us from the living the life of our dreams.

Dare to dream.

This Orderly Universe

Cosmos

One of the biggest stumbling blocks for people regarding the Law of Attraction is the truth that there are no accidents. Period. The teachings are definite. For people who balk at such a notion–that they couldn’t possibly have attracted such tragic or painful circumstances–I offer a quote from the The Kybalion, which relates to the Principle of Cause and Effect: “Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; Everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized.” In other words, we could say that a mystery only remains a mystery until the cause is discovered.

We live in a Cosmos; that is clear. A Cosmos functions in an orderly fashion. Sound and Light travel at constants–not some of the time, but all of the time. There is rhythm and balance, ebb and flow, cycles and seasons that predictably follow one another. Spring follows Winter one-hundred-percent of the time; and the two remaining seasons are also true to their sequence. It is not by accident that this occurs. Based on such order, we absolutely know that we must plant–first–before we may reap. Innately, we also understand that the nature of a harvest is dependent on what we sow. If we desire wheat, we plant wheat. Corn, we plant corn. We, too, are immersed in the great natural laws and forces of life; and therefore subject to them. However: Unlike other life forms, we may determine the nature of our harvest–and environment–through our unique ability to choose our predominant thoughts. When we align with Source (which only functions for good) we may govern our own world.

Chaos, on the other hand, suggests that nothing is truly under our dominion. Due to the function of the Law of Attraction, people who believe in chaos will reap chaotic and random results. They have, in effect, attuned themselves to expect nothing less. This is easily understood if we imagine the Universe matching our beliefs…even if such beliefs are not connected with Truth. The Placebo Effect–which is well known and widely studied–is another term for what we’re describing. Think that there is Fate; then a fated life shall seem our experience. Conversely: Know that we are free–to imagine the very best of this life–and that, too, shall be matched. Freedom requires such a system.

The truth of this information holds life-transforming importance: We are free! Free to think what we will; believe what we will; act how we will!  The Creator of All did not decree that we would be blessed or cursed, for what loving Father would bless some of His children and yet curse others? However: That we may curse or bless ourselves through either our ignorance of–or alignment with–Truth, places the responsibility right where it belongs: with us. That’s actually great news; for with that responsibility comes tremendous empowerment.

Dare to dream.
