The Law of Attraction


Get the ball rolling!..Get the ball rolling! No matter what I say, a blogger I shall stay! And ' oh what a relief it is to grab on this time and zealously carve ornate words in optic air......I can even smell the sweet, mildly garlicky whiff of zzzz...zzzzing' currents...cybie neutrons locked with zappy' crouton powers to attract.......attract.......attract wordy connections.....

And I must mumble a demure "forgive me" for not being constant in replying to comments. I treasure the words and the time gifted to me by my cyber friends...most of whom have been here for so long..... blessed witnesses to weirdness....anger......irritation....sudden wails of nirvana....giggles...nonsense...food...career change...house change...dog bites...mutations...ye'...

Funny though because a few days before Mayden and Kate both made their much awaited block buster "You Tube" debut...I was thinking in the same line...Well, in about the same line...I was wondering about voices so think how knock out astounded I was to read several comment conversations expounding deep dark desires to hear bloggy' voices too....hee!..hee!..It was terribly fascinating to read what was going on in my mind was riding in the minds of others......simultaneously.....real time....

Which brings me back to this blinging sensation on the LAw of Attraction hyped by The Secret ( as shown in Oprah)....The law of Attraction being "what you desire..you attract into your life"....is not an original nirvanic concept to me...From Napoleon Hill to Steven Covey to Dr. Wayne Dyer to M. Scott Peck to just so many authors I have come across with emerge the same nuclei of a though...."that what the mind conceives..the body achieves".

However, there are blocks of realizations that the said production helped unlock inside my mind.. One of the most powerful is the understanding that emotions ( feelings) and thoughts are the power lines through which we make our desires fulfill themselves. Essentially, our feelings nudge us to whether we are thinking rightly or wrongly...and to think rightly...with joy is what propels a treasured thought to manifest itself. The core of making dreams a reality is a happy thought....

In Bible study, we were trained not to rely on feelings but to do what is right whether we feel like it or not.......Feelings are whimsical..fleeting and selfish...An unreliable gauge of the truth...

My knowing now reveals to me that my emotions are not to be denied..or shunned for indeed they are a gauge...a measure to whether my thoughts are aright....are healthy....are stable and aligned to what will serve make my dream stand before me...

Another powerful "illumination"..if I might call it that..is the idea that.."I make my own purpose." This....this phrase rocked me more than anything!

In my experience of doctrine and church...I was expounded to search for my purpose...to pray..and to wait for God to speak to me..about my purpose....here on earth...I may be doing one thing of which I might think is God's calling...but if in the process it would appear that I was not to succeed, then I can presume that what I thought was a calling...or my purpose...could turn out to be...dreadfully not so!!!...

And indeed God has given a purpose...but we...me...I.... create this purpose. There is no written rule that I should be but one thing in this life..and if I fail......fail..to do...to live this purpose..if I even fail to find this purpose...my life would have been wasted.

There is no losing purpose when you create your own...or confusion in having to find a purpose....or delusion....I simply purpose to be what I want to each day....It could be for this day...my purpose is to reach out to a friend...or to be kind to children..or to cook a good meal....Each day...a purpose....If I do..create my each day purpose...I would exit this world anytime ready...having fulfilled what is my purpose for the moment...My life..each day...filled with purpose...


The most sublime lesson I learned...was that..".I am not here to change the world." No...oh' gawd..how liberating...I cannot change anyone..or the reality of wars...or famine...or drug addiction...My reality isn't even the reality of the people around me...I cannot control them....

I create the life I want...I create the reality I want...What I see around me...what I have around me in my life is what I asked for...the residue of my past thoughts...my husband...( I thought about him when I was a teenager...someday I will meet a man..and he will be charming for me and love me always.....and here he is...)....my children....( when I was twelve..I remember holding a doll and looking at myself in the mirror..saying I'll be a mommy someday...here baby eat....), my home...( I wanted one with a balcony...where I can watch the moon and stars...)

How true!....How true!!

And though my reality isn't one of war...or famine...or desperate addiction...living and creating the peaceful purposeful reality I want each day helps bring peace on this world...

Nothing I heard in The Secret..is astoundingly new.....but amazingly....each phrase...each word that landed on my ears had power.....maybe because..I've felt this power in my life..these truths do happen in my life....

I hope the friends I have here and the people my husband and I will share this to will have an open mind.....and not just retort.."oh' how ungodly"...or how so unbiblical...diabolical....thou art lost sister....come back to the fold of yada' yada yada...."

ahh...but then...dinner time once again.....It is my upose to cook.....time to create something to eat...for real...hee!..hee!

Ah purpose....
purpose on most days is good, but sometimes it's also good to just let the tides or the winds of will move you about during a day....sort of an unplanned, free day with nothing accomplished and no feelings of guilt.....(of course, unplanned catastrophes and major mishaps are not what i'm talking about here). i need to come back and answer this one more in debth. i've also been meaning to email you. so i need to do that. however, today needs to be a day full of purpose for me. stuff needs to get done and i will feel much better at the end of the day if it is accomplished. so, here's to a productive day for me and to you a very peaceful evening/night.
t'is time for me to shower and put breakfast on.....:)....and to walk...and to clean, organize, etc. etc. ad infinitum...

Firstly I looove the picture, how romantic!!
I enjoyed this post Luxie, it so spoke to me, I am going through the same things lately. I think about things I struggle through and have to face over the years and wonder when is this going to stop being in my way, I wonder how come God is not helping me and leading me?
Then I am also still angry at my ex for the life I had, but your words "I created the life I want ... I created it, rings in my ears and I know I have to forgive and forget and live for what I have now, also a great husband that love and spoil and treasure me.
I keep meaning to blog about it but it felt so personal, but on the other hand maybe all my bloggy friends will help me through it.
What ya think?

I won't be blogging anymore - I'll be carving ornate words in optic air instead. Cool. I am so stealing the phrase.

You took a simple act of writing down thoughts and words and turned it into art.

I too have been thinking of my purpose and why I am here.

There are events that have caused my to turn inside and inventory my own life.

A while back, Kate had a post on "The Secret." You're right in that the basic tenets of this movement are neither new, nor have they really been a secret.

I cannot dissuade you from any belief system, nor should I try. I would, however, suggest that you take a look at other belief systems (e.g. Scientology) that make similar claims.

You guys get Oprah in the Phillipines?

I would love to hear your voice! I am wondering if you talk the way you write and what your accent sounds like! hehehe so go for the youtube gig! lol

As for the Secret, I think that it will only work for those who buy into the concept. As you said, you cant change anyone besides yourself!


I borrowed a copy to play for my family. Perhaps I will put it on and force them all to listen tonight! hehehe naw... it was a tough day... I will go for it tomorrow! lol

Happy Wed!

Foam; Oh' yes..yes..just letting the day bring forth itself is liberating..I do want though to consciously remember that I must always as much as possible purpose to be happy by keeping my thoughts in check...It's so difficult..but now that I'm really trying..I feel more relaxed and a wee' bit cool...not s reactive to situations.. can be so..just reactive...Looking forward to hearing from you...

Hann: I think that blogging is a great therapy. I've seen and read wonderful writers who tell about their life and pour out feelings in a way that inspires and evokes understanding.

At first, it was difficult for me to face that I am what I am because of me..ad I have everything here because I allowed it..it's so easy to blame..point a finger...taking responsibility however, slowly taking responsibility for everything sets me free..I was thinking..if I didn't create all this that I have...the life that I choose to live day by day..then who did?..Taking responsibility gives me the strength and power to change the things I don't want...and to invite events I would want to have...

We are all here to help each other through...

SJ: My prayers are for you man!...Blogging, I think will be more special in light of what you will go through...You're always n our thoughts...

Bardouble: Oh' thank you...We all need to analyze once in a while...however...there is such a thing as paralysis of analysis....everything in moderation...have a wonderful day!

X:DELL: Oprah?..oh yes!..and just about everything in cable..I don't watch that much TV though...and yes...my going through link after link has brought me to certain discoveries.

KAte: LOL!..oh' I dunno' what sort ov' accent I have..but let me see..let me see..As soon as I find a director, a screen writer, producer...production designer..hee!hee!

Butterfly: Thank you!!..hey' been missing you..will flutter by soon!
