In this podcast, Brandon, Christine, and Justin discuss the nature of evil. Does evil exist? Is there a force of evil? What about morality? And finally, how can you come up with your own personal code of ethics, and apply them ruthlessly to your own reality? After all, you are the final say of what […]
In this podcast, we are joined by Nathalie Thompson from Vibe Shifting, author of Fearless and Mind Shifting. We tackle such topics as the connection between the law of attraction, psychology, and philosophy; the importance of the subconscious mind in manifesting; the key to making the most of our challenges in life; and how fear […]
You know what you want, right? If you believe in the LOA, you probably have a list of your intentions ready to go at the top of your head, or written down on some list somewhere.
But have you ever stopped to ask yourself, why do you want what you want?
Okay, there’s the obvious. Maybe you want more money so you can pay the bills, or for greater peace of mind. Maybe you want a relationship because you don’t want to be alone, and you want a companion to share life with. And maybe you want health because… actually that one’s pretty obvious.
But, go beyond those simplistic reasons.
No, I’m not dismissing your reasons, or calling them invalid.
But let’s explore the root of wanting.
“Why would I want to do that?” you ask.
Well, it’s simple. Have you ever considered that your wanting for this or that thing, is exactly what is keeping you trapped in a life of more and more wanting?
It was the Buddha who said that to desire is to suffer.
But, don’t worry. I’m not going to tell you you should give up your goals.
However, if you don’t understand precisely where this wanting stems from, then even if you were ever to achieve your goal, it would not provide what you wanted.
It would actually just lead to another chase for something more.
Sometimes, we law of attraction practitioners are accused of being delusional.
We’re told that we should face “reality”.
And, we all know how fluid reality really is. We know that current outer reality is just the crystallized form of our thoughts and feelings in the past.
So, we happily turn our attention to what we really want, doing anything we can to feel good, and completely ignore whatever is in front of us.
Yet, you have people who are in favor of the exact opposite: complete and total present moment awareness.
So, which is it? Does the law of attraction require you to ignore current reality?
When you look at the world as it is today, it’s rather easy to see it as broken, and in need of improvement.
As spiritual seekers, many of us ask, is it possible to create a perfect world? Is it possible to use the law of attraction to manifest a world that is free of suffering and full of harmony?
If so, how would such a world be created? What, exactly, would it look like?
Recently someone alluded to this very question, so I thought it would make a great topic for a blog post.
