The Lure of the Law of Attraction and enlightenment
Posted: Tue Jul 18, 2017 6:17 pm
I will admit that enlightenment has a greater appeal due to what is stated in the Law of Attraction as attracting more desireable circumstances. I find that the LOA has a certain essence that defies common sense, and the laws of the ego that says things are as they are, whether or not they are liked. If I am correct, the LOA is not as the Secret says of just wishing and imagining ideal circumstances into existence, but something much deeper. However, I cannot help but see that the LOA can inhibit enlightenment, as I cannot help but think that this can be a kind of identification with ones desires, which I wonder if it just creates more ego. This is a kind of knowing that says "I choose therefore I am" as opposed to the "I think therefore I am". However, I cannot help but feel attached to my wants, and have been for a long time. I had covered them up with moralistic ideologies, such as Libertarianism, leftism, the free market, tolerance, diversity, non-judgment, ect.
