I think we all need to do that a lot more given the state of our country at the moment. This is NOT another political post. There's nothing that I can say that will change the minds of those convinced they're 'right'. and they ALL think they're 'right'.
what is 'right' anyways? an opinion. an idea. a belief. all of which are solely yours and yours alone. I wouldn't change them if I could for that's not the point. The point is to have these personal beliefs, ideas and opinions and NOT have to constantly justify them. To have the awareness of the collective whole called 'humanity' understand this fact and live it completely.
That is the point.
But how did we get here.
Maybe you've heard of this thing called the law of attraction. and maybe you've heard of this other thing called intention.
We use intention every single day. actually moment by moment. It starts the first thing you wake up; maybe you want coffee, so you think about the coffee, then you go to the kitchen and either make coffee or better yet! the coffee is already made because you set the timer on the night before. we do this throughout our entire day without even realizing that it is what we are doing.
the law of attraction works the exact same way but with a slight catch.
It can be described as the famous Buddha once said "What we think, we become." absolutely anything you THINK, you can attract. Famed speaker Abraham Hicks talks wonderfully about this topic and explains it in terms of a 'vortex'.
Anything within your 'vortex' of being, is what you attract. If you are depressed, you are going to be more depressed. if you are happy, then you will attract happy things and ideas into your life. This is a quite straight forward way to explain this.
The catch about the law of attraction is that we need to remain extremely mindful about our thoughts. Fear.
Fearing something to happen is willing it to be so. read that again. as Abraham Hicks has said in one of her many talks on this topic, "Worrying is using your imagination to create things you do not want."
