I am new here! Perhaps the LoA drew me to the site as I am very interested in the subject on a less spiritual more psychological level. I was interested in Steve's question as to why are some children abused - are they attracting abuse? Well in many ways they often are by being targeted as the most vulnerbale within the 'pack' whether it be in a family or school or other child 'group', by their behaviour. Certain charactersistics will draw an abuser such as low self worth, isolation from others, introversion, neediness etc Therefore yes the LoA exist through manifest behaviours which a child is quite unaware of. Does it follow then that for all of us the message is behave as well as 'wish' for those things and those people that you desire to be attracted to you. Just closing your eyes and thinking positive thoughts about the lottery or that job you want just ain't it and misses the point entirely. Of two people going for the same job, the one who thinks positive thoughts about sitting in that employee chair is far less likely to succeed than the one who practices positive, job-oriented behaviours, tthe behaviour will 'attract' the job. Very Oriental in basic concept Basically the mind over matter part of it is in making that decision to act accordingly.
Does anyone agree with the child abuse thoughts??
It's a great site! Cheers,
