I have a better place to start. I was trying to help a friend persuade his 83 year old mother to entere an assisted living facility. For some reason I don't fully understand, her house was foreclosed on, and she is living in a weekly hotel.
But we couldn't persuade her. You see, she read some books, and wants to manifest her house back. Never mind that with her eyesight and frailty, she can't live in the house again. She is devoting herself, 24-7 to manifesting the house back.
One thing about the major religions: they all deal as effectively as humans can with the problems of suffering, old age, and death. They have great poetry that help people live through hardship. Not so LOA. There is no room for failure. No room for suffering. Only the fiction that the universe is your candy store. But that fiction, at some point, will wear thin, and LOA will offering you nothing but guilt and condemnation. It is no philosophy for old ladies, and leave them terribly ill prepared to face reality.
