Then you do not know your LOA theory.
And I may have been wasting my time here, discussing with someone who is only arguing against his own mental notion of what the LOA is.
Anyway, I cannot be bothered to set out a long explanation for you here, on this point. So I've just typed "law of attraction" and "attachment" into Google, and here I give you an excerpt from the very first hit
Attachment is one of the major reasons why we fail to manifest our desires through the law of attraction. This is because the very act of desperately desiring something conveys to the universe that something is not in existence in the mental plane or in the material plane. By the law of attraction, that is what it is going to be. |
......... Wanting something so badly begets all the negative energies that prevents the law of attraction from working in our favor or not working at all. From attachment comes out fear, jealousy, greed, and hopelessness among others. Attachment creates in us a feeling of fear that our desire is not going to be manifested. This is caused by the perception that our happiness greatly depends on this object/situation/person so we MUST HAVE that desire manifested NOW. The irony is that it is not going to manifest because your predominant thought is “fear because of lack.” Remember that the law of attraction manifests your predominant thoughts.
So there ... That is why wanting a BMW convertible (or absolutely whatever else, enlightenment included) so much can be counterproductive.
After all, wanting means you don't have it. If your thoughts about wanting are very strong, then you are manifesting the state of not having it.
