I would like to discuss "The Law of Attraction" - in particular to dispel one particular misunderstanding that arises from this popular phrase - specifically the word "Attraction".
Although I have always used this phrase myself, I have done so for the most part due to the fact that it is a phrase that most people have heard and are therefore most familiar with, especially after the success of the movie "The Secret".
However - it has become apparent to me that this phrase has also resulted in much confusion due to the fact that in the context of creating our reality, which is the fundamental objective, the word "attraction" may well be misleading. In fact the word "Law" is not completely accurate either having been used in recent years to describe many metaphysical conditions that really do not even exist.
"Law" is more often authoritarian, whereas the Universe operates to a Universal set of immutable, Divine Principles.
But returning to the word "Attraction".
Attraction, to the extent it can be said to exist, operates to the Principle that like quality of Energy, specifically Vibration, seeks equilibrium and harmony with itself. No more is this evident than in the very basis of reality, in that as we progress we always transition to the Energy level that corresponds to our individual Energy. To that extent we could say that we are "attracted" to that specific Energy level the main characteristic of which is Vibration.
But how does this compare or relate to creating our own reality, which after all is what most people wish to do?
The fact is that most books and even the movie omit one crucially important factor for success, and the very factor that renders the word "attraction" to be erroneous and misleading and usually results in a lack of success.
That factor for success is the truth that we can create nothing at all on our own - all creation takes place through Source Energy, God within each of us as Divine, infinitely powerful expressions of God.
We discussed this recently in our discussion on Universal Life Energy, but is certainly worth repeating the words of the Master known as Jesus in this particular context:
"Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father". -- John 14:10 -12
"Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel". -- John 5:19 - 20
Now here we begin to see the truth.
Jesus is clearly saying that he, and therefore we as equal Children of God can do nothing of ourselves, it is Source Energy, God within that "doeth the works" and that he "goes unto the Father".
So we can now see that the word "attraction" is erroneous in the context of Creation, and almost certainly the root cause of most people being unable to create their reality after reading most books, watching the movie etc.
Now let us look at the relative mechanics of creation more closely.
The word "attraction" implies that the reality we wish for is outside of ourselves, in other words external to us in some way, and therefore in order to experience it in our experiential reality we must first attract it to us from somewhere "out there".
This is a fundamental mistake, an one that leads to lack of success.
We all exist as Divine aspects and expressions of Source Energy - God, Who resides within each and every one of us without exception.
And it is God within us that "doeth the works", in other words creates through us.
Everything we experience therefore comes from the inside, created by our thought processes giving rise to a Thought Form, and which then manifests outwards into our physical experiential reality.
This then is what I refer to as the true "Principle of Expression".
While people continue to think and act in physical terms - as if everything is external to them - for example saying "that car" or "that house" implying space and time, then it will not be possible to effectively create reality.
I cannot stress this enough - just as Science of Being and Consciously Creating Circumstances stresses and teaches it - we Express from the inside out - we do not attract to us that which is already outside of us and therefore an aspect of the inner reality of others.
The Principle of Expression therefore is simple:
To realise God within and to Express from a position within God as God.
The way to do this is by "going within", that is to say focusing your consciousness within, realising the Energy of God, of Source, of Divine Providence, and then, from the position of God, as God, Express your wishes, needs and desires beyond space and time, knowing them to be true Now, and knowing, with absolute certainty that the infinite, creative powers of Source Energy, God will bring them to fruition.
It is crucial to do this as God and not with God implying a duality.
In this context it is easy to see why so many people have thus far not succeeded after the promises of the movie and numerous books about The Law of Attraction.
If you wish to become a powerful creator of your own reality, you must first learn to focus your Mind inwards to become One with God.
The more we can realise God within, the more powerful we become as creators or Expressions of our own reality, and co-creators with God in the Universe.
