It has recently occurred to me that all of the great scholars, lecturers and sages were saying the exact same thing. So it is nothing new or even revolutionary what the newest New Age thinkers are saying because they are saying the exact same thing. It just needs to be said in different ways so that everyone can get it. In other words, I'm saying The Law of Attraction is not new!
It is that what you think you become. If you think you can you can, if you think you can't, you're right too. Whatever you put out is what you will get back. Nothing new. It's all the same and it applies to whatever you put your mind to. It doesn't matter what business you are in - whatever you put out will come back to you.
Napoleon Hill Made it 15 lessons, Jack Canfield made it into Chicken Soup, Steven Covey gave us 7 Habits, Depak Chopra gave us 20 Spiritual Laws and Rhonda Byrne told us The Secret. Wayne Dyer told us to Believe it Before We can See It, while Mike Dooley gives us Infinite Possibilities and Napoleon Hill told us to Think and Grow Rich through the Laws of Success.
It all comes back to the same thing. Heck even the Bible told us about the Golden Rule when Jesus told us to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Confucius said do not do to other people what you do not want them to do to you. It's the Golden f****** rule! Do unto others as you would have them do to you in the same exact circumstance. So put out to the Universe what you would like to get back
What does this mean? It means you need to think before you do anything. There is the word - THINK. You can know everything about anatomy. You can know everything about physiology. You can know everything about psychology. It all comes down to what you think. And I don't think anyone can really tell us how the mind works. REALLY!
Just like the circuits in a computer, the human mind is programmed based on what it's programmers have told it what to do. And who are it's programmers, well we are a part of the program but we are not the only ones that program our brain. Parents, teachers, siblings, friends, books we've read, the news we watch - all of these program a part of our brain based on what we accept as truth.
So why do you think what you think? Because of the way you were raised, the things that were put into your head as you were growing up. We come out of the womb with the universal truths and universal energy and universal knowledge. But then, based on the life and family and government and religion we were born into some of the truths left us. The belief systems that were taught to us by those people and institutions bring us to where we are today. And what we think we become (Buddha). In order to change what you think you need to change some of those beliefs.
And this is where the Law of Attraction comes in because what we believe as truth is the way we will think and thus what we will attract to us. Where this seems to not work is when what we really want does not seem to be attracted to us. So, does the Law of Attraction not work? Is it really just a made up concept of New Age thinkers? Have others really not been saying the same thing all along. Well yes and no. The Law of Attraction has always been around but New Age "scholar" have just brought it out more into the mainstream and in their own way teachers for centuries have been saying the same thing. And yes sometimes it doesn't work because we sabotage it. More about that tomorrow!

What is it that you are filling yourself up with today? Because whatever you are putting in is what you are in turn putting out!
Wake up on the wrong side of the bed? Are you carrying that thru to the rest of your day? Feeling anxious about what you have to do today? Bored on the job?
Feeling compassion for all people today when reading about floods, famine or distress? How about feeling love for everyone around you? Or having hope for the future and all the great things that it will bring?
Whatever you are filling your cup with is what you will then expect in life and what you will get. So fill up your cup with Compassion, Love, Hope, Positivity, Prosperity and Kindness. Isn't that what you would really rather be having?
Last Sunday in church we had an excellent sermon by a former ELCA Bishop of the church. He asked a number of questions in regard to how you fit into the church that I felt could be modified to how you look at your life and how you fit in. So here goes.
What are your expectations about your life?
In other words what was it that you had expected out of life? Why did you have those expectations? What was it that made you believe that you would get that out of life? Did something happen in your youth that gave you those expectations? What were you taught about life as a youth? The beliefs that we have as adults are all formed as we are growing and regardless of what they are they can be changed! Right now. Create your own beliefs and your expectations of life will change!
What is your THIS?
In other words what is it that you declare openly about yourself? Who do you say that you are? Is it a positive or negative connotation? What you tell people about yourself, your life and your surroundings is exactly what you will get! You create your own life and if it is good or bad is up to you. Speak what you want out of life and you can change your life!
Where are you being lead?
In other words what is it that is leading you in your life? Are you following someone else's path or are you following your own path? The path you follow is your decision and once again you have the power to change it! One of my favorite poems is by Robert Frost,
