The Law of Attraction was relatively unknown until the exceptionally popular The Secret movie and The Secret book by Rhonda Byrne, made its appearance several years ago, and was watched and read by millions of people around the world.
Rhonda Byrne, The Secret deserve considerable credit for bringing these higher Universal Principles to humanity, and above all showing to people that rather being helpless victims of circumstance where life just "happens" to us, we have the God-given powers to "create" any reality and experience of our choosing at will.
However, the whole premise of The Secret is based upon a process that became known as "The Law Of Attraction" and the underlying theme of the movie. Unfortunately however, although millions of people have watched the movie and put in to practice the guidance contained therein to varying degrees, relatively few have enjoyed any degree of the much anticipated and certainly not enduring success. Neither Rhonda Byrne or the movie can be blamed in any way for this. TheSecret is actually based on several much older books written in the early 1900's such as "Think and Grow Rich" and "The Master Key System" among others, which largely describe the Law of Attraction as presented in the movie.
So why then do so many people fail to experience any degree of success in following the guidance and examples presented?
The term "The Law of Attraction" is actually a misnomer, implying that all our wishes, needs and desires are "out there" somewhere, just waiting to be attracted to us.
This entire concept of The Law of Attraction and TheSecret however is entirely flawed and completely erroneous, being rooted in idea of duality.
There is in fact no "out there" at all. It is a Universal Principle that All is One and exists within us - not "out there" somewhere. Jesus said "Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" ~ Luke 17:21
And therein is the Truth - All In Creation Is Within Us - We ARE the microcosm of All Creation - the macrocosm.
So we are already Whole, lack nothing and Encompass everything. There Is Nothing Therefore Not Already Within Us - we lack no-thing.
So although Rhonda Byrne, The Secret had the best of intentions, the Law of Attraction is fundamentally flawed from the outset, and is reflected in the lack of success of millions of people who watched and put in to practice the movie.
Manifesting our wishes, our experience, our experiential reality, is simply a matter of choosing from the Universe Within Us a particular Desired Experience, which may then be Expressed through Mind and Consciousness, through Source, as Source.
The good new is that this is a very simply process and is intended to be. Our Supreme Creator, The Divine, Source, God never intended life to be a struggle for survival and fight against lack. God, Source, The Universe is Divine Love, Infinitely Compassionate and Infinitely benevolent. We are Source, God incarnate, the Universe, and may experience anything we wish from Within as a natural ability, without the need for any complicated procedures.
