I saw the movie, and have read online and offline LoA material. I don't remember any of them saying that you shouldn't do
anything. They don't claim you are a genie that can just blink or twitch your nose to make things happen. Sometimes it may work that way, and other times, not.
In my view, the most important thing to understand when debating these things is: one event + two sets of beliefs == two completely different experiences. A person's reality is seen through the lens of their beliefs.
So, Bob believes that he can stop his cancer, and let's say it does stop. Bob claims it's due to LoA. Joe says, no, I've run some tests and found this medical fluke that could explain it. Bob says, I accept your explanation, and it was set in motion by my intention. Joe internally labels Bob a nut, and wonders why Bob doesn't also stop terrorism while he's at it. Whether you're Bob or Joe, you're still 100% right, because your beliefs make you so.
