What you think is what you get. Not "what you want is what you get".
OK, let me expand on that second sentence.
How about :
According to the Hicks/Abraham teachings, you create your own reality through your thoughts and whatever you desire, you can manifest by practising LoA exercises.
If you don't agree, just flick through Ask And It is Given (one of the seminal LoA works by Hicks) and see how many times the word desire
pops up. Desire is also a simile for want, btw.
Whilst there is much engaging material in that book relating to staying positive and enthusiastic, visualizing your goals, etc, there is a running theme throughout which goes:
You can have your cake and eat it - in this life, like NOW
. That's the great selling point of the book which appeals to the spiritually challenged: if you want something, you don't have to work for it, worry about it, or save up for it, or wait for it.
No matter what it is you want, just buy the book, follow the simple exercises, and it will automatically manifest in reality - that's law
