Values are what bring distinction to your life. You don't find them, you choose them. And when you do, you're on the path to fulfillment.
I must say thanks to you as well because in order to fully understand or at least to get closer to understanding debate is needed. Everything must be questioned and not simply assumed.
Just like you I have been reading and searching as much information related to this topic since I first heard of it years ago. I have fulfilled most if my goals and dreams. But guess what!! None of them are related to yachts, eating caviar, sipping champagne or waiting for a private jet to fly me to my private island. None of those are goals in my life and all of them except for the private island and the yet I have experienced and enjoyed without even having to be a tycoon.
Instead I have been able to approach life in a different way. Learning to be thankful for the things I keep om receiving everyday, such as: The love of my kids, my friends, the overall experience in my journey and of course I have been throught bad ones and good ones. But all of those experience are an invaluable treasure to me. So dont assume everyone wants to attract the things you mentioned before.
Law of attraction its a label to something known and practiced from way before 1800s.
There was an inherent truth on this knowledge, unfortunately not everyone who claims to know or understand this truth really does. An based on your original post you investigated in the wrong places. These sources you mentioned were just means to get this current going but they are not definitely the absolute source of truth. Investigate a bit further and try to understand when you find it with an open mind.
1) If there is a LOA, why do babies get sick? Good and bad is just an infinite scale of degrees and go way beyond our understanding.
Why do Tibetan monks get old?
Aging is not a bad process so theres no need to stop it. Aging and death is not equal destruction. Those are only transformation process
Why do happy, innocent children celebrating a birthday get murdered by terrorists? Who told you that manifestations and creation has to benevolent all the time. Understanding these from our lower perspective will never make sense at all. Just look above your perception level. The universe, for example: There is constant change and transformation in the process and it does involve creation and destruction on a balanced basis. Conciousness at a higher level just keep on manifesting whatever it focus its attention forth and it does it through everything that is at all times, nom stop. And all this manifestafion can be good or bad depending just on our human judgement.
2) If the LOA is a perfect universal law, then why do we need to understand it for it to work? We dont need to understand it in fact it is working all the time.
Why is the success rate at achieving goals only 0.1%?
Because we have not fully understand it
Gravity works 100% of the time whether or not I believe in it Why stick with a scheme that is so ineffective?
3) "Outcome" visualization necessitated by the law of attraction is far less effective than is "process" visualization. This is not my opinion, this has been shown in scientific research. It has been shown as well that mental preparation before certain events improve the possible outcome.
4) Research also shows that visualizing a "perfect" relationship or "perfect" diet (as mandated by the law of attraction) leads to a greater chance of failure and less motivation. Bad use of or misunderstanding of this process does but the correct application of it will undoubtly bring good results.
I AGREE with you when you invite people not to be fooled but, not to be fooled by just believing the first guy who introduces himself as an expert when it is obviously just leading you to pay 299 for a magical LOA course so to go deeper in the study of it before dismissing totally a life changing knowledge. Yours are valuable tools to but there is no need to be general and discriminate 100% something that you have not fully experience yourself.
And why not reading your opinions? Whats wrong with that? Just becausw we are not on the same page it does not mean that reading it I will be sucked into an unwanted parallel reality. In fact I enjoyed the thinking process that started after reading your article.
