The Law of Attraction! So What!

A recent conversation with a close friend made me wonder what people really think a metaphysical interpretation of spirituality is. Why would I wonder that, especially after a conversation with a close friend? Well, it’s because the friend wasn’t paying attention to the conversation. Now, if this was a conversation about the weather or my day-to-day happenings, it would not have struck me as it did. But this conversation was about my being told that, yes, I had cancer, and all that that prognosis entailed.

This made me recall what the spiritual practices of my friend said they were doing. I had asked specifically because I was concerned about what I saw in her life and how that had changed. And that had to do mostly with the “Law of Attraction’ philosophy. I understand this law very well and it’s a great way for folks to work on their positive thinking. I do question whether that can be the only means of one’s spiritual practice.

There is so much more to Spirit than ‘positive thinking’. What about all the other laws? Like the Law of Cause and Effect? Or what about the Principles we in Unity use to as a guide to our lives like God is all good, and prayer works, and we create our world through our thoughts, etc?

So often when people talk about prosperity and abundance, it’s relation to monetary abundance. There’s so much more to life than how much money one has in the bank. Yes, money is good and necessary in this world. But there is also nature, friends and family, the ability to think, hear, taste, smell, and touch. What would life be without these? I thank Spirit constantly that I can still hear the birds singing this spring and see the stars at night and taste and smell the wonderful aromas and tastes of the food I eat. I am always amazed at the variety of music that has blessed us through the ages. So much and it’s all different! I would miss music.

But all this brings me to something I saw in the Daily Word this week. The question that was left with the readers was, “what is your heart’s desire”? I immediately placed my hands over my heart and taking a deep breath, sat for a few minutes. It didn’t take me long to realize that my hearts’ desire was for peace and love and compassion and to serve.

I didn’t once think of money or prosperity as most would think. And that’s not like I couldn’t use some extra money. I couldn’t offer any funds for the latest need for the animal rescue I work with because of taxes due. (I do keep saying to the Universe if I could just win the lotto, there is SOOOO much good that could come of it! I have a list!) And you know I was so glad, when I discovered what my hearts’ desire was, that I didn’t go to the thought of anything to do with prosperity.

Please keep in mind, Universe, Spirit, Goddess, God…I’ll still be happy with that Lottery win, or even a little extra money in the bank!

    Thanks Evelyn (Rev!), for your thoughts, kindness and support. I am fine with this and have an understanding of what I must do for the completion of eliminating it from my body. I truly have been blessed with my confrontations with cancer, they have been found very early and easily irridicated from my body. And the lessons….discovered some, I am sure there are others!

    Thanks Evelyn (Rev!) for your comment. love,and support. I am fine with this, it was found early and after a medical process that doesn’t seen too bad, considering, I know I will be ok. I am doing well with my confrontations with the cancers that have invaded my body. And I have and AM learning the lessons associated with them and all the other lessons there have been in my life. I’m sure there are many more to learn…hopefully not painfully! I am so glad to have met you and thankful for your love and support.
    You take care.

        Hi Sandy, thank you for your concern. Before I go any further with the group I would like to know if it is a lesbian group. Because I am a straight lady I don’t know if I am interested. Right now I am suffering from paranoia. So please do not get offended.
