The Law of Attraction
I believe that what we allow our mind to entertain, dwell upon, and imbue with emotion has a way of finding us sooner than later. Some may think that an oversimplification of The Law of Attraction, but I have found it to be like Goldilocks of The Three Bears fame, not too much, nor too little, but just right.
I invite everyone to check it out for themselves. Make a vision board, where you cut out pictures of things you would like to see come into your life, and spend a few moments each day visualizing yourself enjoying those things around you, not coming to you, but already yours, feel the thrill.
The Apostle Paul wrote: “If there is anything excellent or praise worthy – think on these things.” Why would he encourage us to do that? Because Paul had discovered as my friend, Mike Dooley has that “Thoughts become things – choose the best ones.”
It never ceases to amaze me the way people who continually talk about their troubles seem to always have troubles lined up and knocking on their door at all hours. Our words are but symbols of what we are thinking about, dwelling on. A couple of lines barely edited from Psalms 19:14 are a part of my daily mantra: “May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in my sight, my Rock and my Redeemer.” I only changed one word, thy to my, to remind me of Who and Whose I truly am. I take full responsibility for what comes and goes in my life for I am in the words of the poem Invictus: “The Master Of My Fate, The Captain Of My Soul.”
Good or bad, light or dark, fell or fun, what comes to us is what we ourselves summon by our own thoughts. It is ridiculous and totally insane to see ourselves as victims of fate. We are not victims but victors. All it takes to be a victor, a conqueror, is to just get up one more time than the number of times you are knocked down.
Paul again, in the concluding verses of Romans Chapter 7:
For all you non-Christians, and I consider myself in your number, the last phrase “which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” can as easily be rendered “which is in us and is us.”
You, I, We, are our own Hero, Lord, Rock, and Redeemer, no other need apply, that job is already filled and has ever been, only that old rascal “ego” has ever questioned that infinite and eternal fact.
Think about it. “As a person thinks in their heart so are they.”
