There is a point here which LOA beginners do not understand. They cannot do anything. They cannot merely say: "I can fly" and therefore fly, not anymore than a Buddhist can say: "I am enlightened" and therefore become enlightened.
In Buddhism, the attainment of enlightenment is a process which entails great extensive discipline and training of the mind.
Similarly, in LOA, whatever you wish to create your mind, depends on the extent you are able to control, direct and focus your mind. Some intentions will come easily, some intentions will be much more difficult, and some intentions will, for all practical purposes, be impossible.
Jesus walked on water. Buddha walked on water. This definitely doesn't mean that Kanzeon can walk on water. His mind is a far, far cry from the minds of Jesus and Buddha.
