The Light and Dark of The Law of Attraction

In this episode we’re going to talk about The Law of Attraction. It’s become quite a fad, and has both positive and negative press concerning it. Is it a “Law”, or a self-fulfilling prophecy? Does it work? Is it real? How do you apply “wisdom” when attempting to tap into it? Yea, let’s strap in, Stu…

 “Namaste, all of you beautifully, exotic cocktails…

THE SETUP

The law of attraction is a philosophy suggesting that positive thoughts bring positive results into a person's life, while negative thoughts bring negative outcomes. It is based on the belief that thoughts are a form of energy and that positive energy attracts success in all areas of life, including health, finances, and relationships.

The Law of Attraction is one [probably the best known] of the 12 Spiritual Laws of Universe.

20th Century Gurus: Norman Vincent Peale, Dale Carnegie, Og Mandino, Napolean Hill, Tony Robbins, Michael Beckwith.

2006: “The Secret” movie came out.

There ARE cosmic forces at work. How do we apply wisdom to them?

Likes attract? Not opposites? Is it the same as karma?

Tends to breed narcissism. It can be all about me and what I want.

Can ignore, and even demean, the shadow side of us.

Not seeking the outer but developing the inner.

Andy Stanley, “Are you the kind of person, the kind of per you are looking for, is looking for?"

It needs to be a flow. Emanation vs attraction.

How you think certainly affects your reality. It takes wisdom to do it better.

Mystic MacNuggets: Dads!

When does a joke become a Dad joke?: When the punch line becomes apparent. 

Dad to kid (in a serious voice): A word of advice, kid. Never trust atoms. They make up everything. 

Dad: I never thought I’d be the type to have a beard. But then it just grew on me. 

Kid: Dad, it hurts when I move my arm like this. Dad: Then don’t move your arm like that. 

Dad: I told my kids to embrace their mistakes, then they hugged me.

Is the refrigerator running? Better go catch it!
