The Law of Attraction Revisited

The Law of Attraction
 
Dream Awareness Network
Next class at Enchanted Spirits in Dunedin, FL will be July 18.
Facilitator:  John W. Robinson.
 
The next class in the series Creating and Living a Magical Life will deal with the popularized “Law of Attraction”.
 
The Law of Attraction was commercialized and popularized in the DVD movie “The Secret”, produced by Rhonda Byrnes, an Australian television producer. The movie was based on a book published by Ester and Jerry Hicks in 2006, “The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham.”  
 
“The Secret” claims to reveal the single most powerful law in the universe - a law that no matter who you are, no matter where you are, you can change your life. Ester and Jerry Hicks’ teachings were first included in an audio cassette series they recorded in 1988. Their teachings began some time after Jerry had become enthralled with the teachings of Seth, as present in the body of work known as the Seth material, published by Jane Roberts.
 
Our introduction of the Seth material began in December 1963 when the writer, poet, mystic and psychic Jane Roberts began receiving information from a non-physical entity that called itself Seth. Jane Roberts then spent the next 20 years receiving and publishing this valuable information which presented an alternate view of reality. The material covers the mechanics of reality creation in the physical world we exist and live in as well as a deep and thorough teaching of the Law of Attraction. In my opinion, to this date, it is broader in scope and richer in depth, as compared to more recent material repackaging the same information.
 
I am not saying that the work of previous nor subsequent teachers is not valuable, because it certainly is. Everyone is an individual and therefore, will have a unique collection of experiences and beliefs. Variations of the same messages will be necessary in order to resonate with the various world views held by different individuals. What I think is important is that the teachings communicate the truth that the real power for change resides within the individual and not external, in the hands of some other authority or institution.
 
In the next class, we will deal with the law of attraction and such questions as:
 
·   If, in 2014, everybody now knows about “The Secret”, why do so many have  such difficulty in creating the kind of life they say they desire and wish for?
·   Why is the current divorce rate reported as still remaining at slightly greater than  50%?
·   Why are 40 million people reported as living in poverty?
·   Why do so many say they are searching for their “soul mate”, which will bring  them happiness?
·  Why are mass killings on an increase in America?
·  Why does the political system seem so in shambles and not in tune with the real needs of people?
·  Why does the Rand Corp. report that the number of people with a chronic    disease condition is l rapidly increasing – (now at 45% of the population)?
·  Why did the world economy collapse in 2006?
·  Why does life seem so tragic at times?

·  Why are personal relationships so difficult to manage sometimes?
·  Does a soul mate even exist for any individual?
 
Being a student of reality creation and consciousness for over 50 years, I know there are answers in general for each of those questions. The big question is - how do I apply the teachings in order to live a more fulfilled and richer life?  In class, we will look below the tip of the iceberg of information we have been told before and explore the archeology of the inner self, the source of such concerns.
 
If “The Secret” is not working for you in the manner you desire, this class may be for you. It will launch us into deeper explorations of our true selves and our place in the universe. The classes to follow will expand on the ideas presented and explore answers to the questions in detail.
 
Below are some quotes from antiquity that put both Seth & Abraham in perspective. There have been many teachers in the past that have tried to grab our attention:
 
The Maitri Upanishad (800-400 BC): “Let us therefore keep the mind pure, for what a man thinks that he becomes.”
 
David of the Old Testament (1040–970 BC): “As one thinks in his heart, so is he.”
 
Jesus of the New Testament (6–4 BC to 30–33 AD): “Whatever you ask for with all your mind, believing in, you shall receive.”
 
Annie Besant (1847-1943): “The mind is like a magnet, attracting and repelling, and the nature of its attractions and repulsions can be determined by ourselves.”
 
Ernest Holmes (1887-1960): “The Laws of Attraction and Repulsion are entirely subjective. This means that whatever man thinks falls into a Universal Creative Medium, is accepted by it, is at once acted upon and unless neutralized tends to take objective form.”
 
Bardol Thodol – Tibetan Book of the Dead (700’s AD): “I will abandon all thoughts of fear and terror, I will recognize whatever appears as my projection.”
 
Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas (50-125 AD): “The difficulty which you expect will surely materialize.”
 
Marcus Aurelius (121-180 AD)): “A man’s life is what his thoughts make of it.”
 
Publilius Syrus (1. century BC): “A wise man will be master of his mind; a fool will be its slave.”
 
John Milton (1608-1674): “The mind is its own place and in itself can make heaven of hell or a hell of heaven.”
 
Shakespeare (1564-1616): “There is nothing either good or bad except that thinking makes it so.”
 
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882): “Great men are those who see that thoughts rule the world.” …”A man is what he thinks all day long.”
 
David J. Schwartz (1927-1987):  “When you believe, your mind finds ways to do.”
 
William James (1842-1910): “Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.” …”Both thought and feeling are determinants of conduct, and the same conduct may be determined either by feeling or by thought.” …”The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.”
 
Napoleon Hill (1883-1970) “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve.” …”There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge.” …”Both poverty and riches are the offspring of thought.”
 
Emile Coue (1857-1926): “Always think of what you have to do as easy and it will become so.”
 
Henry David Thoreau (1818-1862): “Events and circumstances have their origins in ourselves.” …What a man thinks of himself, that is which determines, or rather indicates his fate.” …You conquer fate by thought.” ...”Our thoughts are the epochs of our lives; all else is but a journal of the winds that blew while we were here.” …”Fear creates danger and courage dispels it.”
 
Aristotle (384-322 BC): “The soul never thinks without a picture.” …“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
 
Seth via Jane Roberts (1929-1984): “Experience is the product of the mind, the spirit, conscious thoughts and feelings, and unconscious thoughts and feelings. These together form the reality you know.” …”What exists physically exists first in thought and feeling. There is no other rule. Knowing this is the secret of creativity” … “Basically you create your experience through your beliefs about yourself and the nature of reality.” …“You create your experience through your expectations.” …”The present is your point of power in your current lifetime.”
 
My intent was not to bore you with quotes but to paint a picture of the rich history of our civilization and how it was molded and influenced by people who understood the concept of one’s personal responsibility in the creation of one’s reality.
And yet, we still ponder: “why is there so much going on in the world that we deem undesirable?"

Seth gives us an explanation of how personal and mass events are created.
 
I’ll see you in class on July 18. Namaste’,
