Re: law of attraction and being present

Enlightened, I'm going out the door in a minute, so no time for details. What did I learn from my OBE experiences? I don't know if I learned anything from them. I did think I was losing my mind at one point. As far as different dimension or realm, that was not my experience. It was simply being outs...

Re: law of attraction and being present

But again, modern LOA takes these truths and either exaggerates them or dumbs them down to explain away why for instance, children are born with diseases and/or deformities with explanations that they are old souls who chose the experience . Sorry to interject here between you and WW again, but I'v...

Re: law of attraction and being present

​WW: Beginnersmind, there are those who see value in Abraham's teaching, and there are those who see only conspiracy and imagined greed. Eric: You've addressed nothing I said, but instead opted for sidestepping claim making and dismissing what is said through backhanded criticisms. Take this claim f...

Re: law of attraction and being present

The Hicks has a lot of backtracking to do when Jerry got sick, because their whole shtick was that people who get sick attract it to them through their thoughts and vibrations. Thought I might add a little insight on Jerry Hicks death. No one is going to live forever in these human bodies. Everyone...

Re: law of attraction and being present

Wayne Dyer has nothing to do with the book. He just wrote the Forward and helped endorse the book. The story itself is Anita's only and is about Anita's experience in the afterlife and how she manifested cancer by constantly putting her thoughts and attention (fear) on not getting cancer through he...

Re: law of attraction and being present

I don't really know much about Hick's teaching. So, I can't really comment. I was under the impression that you were making a general assumption about what most LoA teachings promote, based on your reference to LoA teachings. Since you indicated that my whole reply was a problem, can you tell me wh...

Re: law of attraction and being present

Enlightened, the problem with your whole reply to me, is what you quoted from me stating I don't understand this or that, is what you quoted is not my understanding, but a claim made by someone else.

Re: Eckhart has a retreat?

As the body sickens and dies without sufficient blood flow so does the luminosity of an enlightened being splutter and flicker out without sufficient cash flow -- it is a fixed "spiritual law" in the western world apparently. Perhaps Advaita teachers have been taking lessons from the great bloom of...

Re: law of attraction and being present

While some may judge greed as wrong, the universe itself sees it as just another experience. WW The only people who make claim that greed is not wrong are those that confuse the Absolute with the manifested and practice level confusion at one's convenience; namely neo-advaitists and new agers who p...

Re: law of attraction and being present

WW, Whenever it comes to LOA, you're always hyper sensitive and so quick to defend it. If you read what I initially wrote, you'd see that I didn't make it is an always statement as in: ​"It depends. I'm hesitant about LOA, because often times it comes from a very egocentric point of view. What's in ...

Re: law of attraction and being present

Just to add to the original poster. If you're looking to LOA, a book that you may like is called, "The Alchemy of Abundance" by Rick Jarow. He emphasizes relationship in LOA.

Re: law of attraction and being present

Having gone through my phase of LOA and reading books like: Think and Grow Rich a bunch of Abraham-Hicks books The Master Key System The Secret The Secret of the Ages etc. etc. etc. That have distorted the teachings of authors such as Emerson and Thoreau. I'm pretty familiar with LOA. So you can kee...

Re: law of attraction and being present

​It depends. I'm hesitant about LOA, because often times it comes from a very egocentric point of view. What's in it for me. Attract this to me, that to me, etc. The thing about LOA is that there is truth in it. We can see it in a very practical sense that when we are kind to other people, we find t...
