The law of attraction!
Recently, I have read about the law of attraction. I also read about the vast resource that had been provided in the universe that is actually formless, unseen and needed to be formed by our thoughts. This was described by many in the past as positive thinking.
Is this real? Is this true? My answer to this is that it is something that is possibly correct and not far from the truth, if not exactly correct.
Biblically, God created the universe out of nothing. God created man in his likeness and in his image. Man was also endowed the gift of free will. When man fell out of God’s grace, and was driven out of paradise after eating the forbidden fruit, guards were placed to guard the forbidden tree to prevent man from eating the fruit again . There were also accounts in the life of Jesus, where the disciples were told that they did not have enough faith, that’s why they could not do what they were supposed to do. Peter walked on the water, but doubted walking on the water as he did, so he started sinking. 2Corinthians 4:18 mentioned about things that are unseen ,where we need to fix our attention. Well, you can interpret that in so many ways, but you can also take it as an instruction, how to live your life and how to direct your thoughts.
Covey, talked about self fulfilling prophecies, and some medical doctors talked about the placebo effect. So many things have been written about man’s brain capacity, and its ability to do things that have not yet been ordinarily done. Some say, we have only used 10% of what the brain power has as its capability. Then, many more things have been written about favorable attraction of things towards what we think, making our thoughts real eventually; which at times are dismissed as coincidences by not few, but many men. Whatever is the real fact, it remains that positive thoughts lead to something good, and negative thoughts to some lesser good. Should you believe that which is good? Does our human mind understand everything? We know it doesn’t, and there are many happenings that we can’t even explain. Whether the law of attraction is true or not, it pays to do that, which is good. So think positively and beware of negative thoughts that may destroy.
