LoA and the nature of the self
Hello, just wanted to share my thoughts on the LoA, and this seems like the best place for it.
Like many people on here, i've had trouble accepting the LoA as being absolute, not because i'm afraid of the responsibility it implies, but because there are many situations to which its hard to apply it (i.e. the little girl in Florida, and many other such tragedies).
However, i found myself able to make sense of all this by completely changing my thoughts about what we are, *what i am*. I believe in consciousness as being the ground of all being, the most fundamental level of the universe, and i see it as having 4 main functions:
So for example. I dont think of myself as being my body anymore. All *I* do is observe the Ego, and the feelings and the senses of this body, as well as observing the infinite field of possibilities. Perceiving the bodily properties is the observation part, and perceiving possibilites is the imagination part. Then given the set of possibilities and the state of the body, I make a decision on which possibility i want created. When i make that decision - the law of attraction starts the creative process.
So to be clear; if i decide i want to stroke my cat, all i do is make the decision and the universe at large makes the possibility into a reality. I feel as if i control my body because the law of attraction is particularly strong in the region of my body. My body is a key facilitator of the law of attraction. It helps the universe create things more quickly than if i had no body. But any control I have over it is purely based on observation, imagination and decision making. I do not actually move my body, i just decide that something should be done and the body moves under its own accord.
I have often suffered from laziness in the past and I see now how this laziness manifests. Not because i attract it by thinking about laziness all the time, but because i decide it based on information from my ego. See I will make a decision to do something, then as i begin doing it, i will start to observe information from my ego saying "last time i did this it was unpleasant" .. "it would be better to do it tomorrow" etc, and so I consciously decide not to do it based on that information. My ego then feels satisfied, but my Self is not, and this leads to paranoia and over-analytical thinking.
anyway, gotta go. I'd appreciate your comments
