Sometimes I get nasty emails.
They say the law of attraction isn’t a law.
They’re pretty angry about it, too.
Their number one proof is that the law of gravity is repeatable: drop something and it falls.
But, they say, the law of attraction can’t be repeated at all.
What these well-intended people don’t see is that they are attracting all the time.
They even attract other like-minded skeptics, completely oblivious to the fact that they have attracted each other, but let’s leave that observation for someone else to ponder.
They say they aren’t attracting because they appear to attract what they don’t want.
So, in their mind, the law of attraction can’t be a law.
I can’t blame them for thinking that way. They simply expect the law to work in their favor at all times. (As if gravity does.) They expect everything to be measureable and predictable.
But this is where their logic is twisted.
They never seem to notice that they can drop a pen from a roof a million times but it won’t land in the exact same spot every time.
Isn’t gravity a law?
Shouldn’t gravity be exactly repeatable?
In other words, because something falls, they say gravity is proven.
Well, because you attract something, even what you didn’t consciously want, doesn’t that prove the law of attraction, too?
I think the confusion comes from expecting to hit a specific target every time.
With gravity, people are forgiving. If it falls, that’s proof of gravity. They don’t look any further. Experiment over.
But with the law of attraction, people are more demanding: if they don’t attract precisely what they said they wanted, then the law doesn’t exist (in their mind).
Now this is what’s interesting to me:
If the law of attraction is working just as the law of gravity is — neither are precise (they can be but that’s a different blog post) but both are laws — why don’t some people want to agree to it?
And why are so many of these outspoken people angry?
My guess is that as soon as they admit the law of attraction works, then they have to take full responsibility for what they are getting in their life.
Few can admit that.
It means there is no one to blame.
Think of the apparent burden this places on a person.
If I could shirk responsibility, I’d do it, too!
But once you understand the truth, there’s no going back to sleep again.
And get this —
Taking full responsibility for your life is only stage two in the process of awakening. There’s still stage three. (I explain all three in my latest book, Zero Limits.)
Considering how tough it is to get people out of stage one, I think I have my work cut out for me.
Please join me in saying —
“I love you, I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you.”
PS – If you want help in understanding all this, consider my Miracles Coaching program. I also have a DVD that helps explain the law of attraction – and then how to transcend it. It’s at www.installthesecret.com Go see. No charge to go look. 🙂
Note: It would be fair to ask, “Joe, why did you attract those nasty emails from the skeptics?” Good question. I attracted them to get me to write this post. Had I not gotten any emails, I may never have written this or even thought about writing this. In short, those nasty emails were a good thing and I attracted them. Now that I’ve gotten the lesson from them, I don’t need to attract any more of them (unless there’s another lesson to learn from them). This is called getting clear. I believe it is The Missing Secret to a successful life.
