The Law of Attraction

This piece will explain the difference between Little and Big.
We want to exit Little and enter Big.
We want to eliminate the confusion between a small trickling stream and the great ocean.
In its most popular form, the so-called law of attraction is offered to people as an operating principle of the universe. And it is often stated this way: “like attracts like.”
Meaning, if you “think a positive thought,” you’ll attract the positive manifestation of that thought in your life. If you think a negative thought, you’ll attract negative consequences.
But breaking news…an ordinary thought is Little. It’s a weak light bulb. It certainly isn’t a magnet that attracts your future from the universe.
Then we have this: a shallow statement of the law of attraction implies that, somehow, you can remain relatively passive and obtain what you want in life. Actually, what you’ll obtain is just that: passivity. A mumble and a jumble and a muddle.
The usual version of the law of attraction is simply the false promise of a vast solution that drifts down from the sky and transforms your existence. If you like that idea, I have condos on Jupiter with ocean views for sale.
Actual magic and manifestation of new realities is a different breed of animal. It is based on an active principle. It begins at the conjunction of imagination, creation, and the projection of energy across space. It is very much related to what an artist does: he creates full-bore. Then there IS a major psychic paranormal component.
And when you are fully engaged in creating, the million little twigs of thought-impulses that flit through spaces of consciousness mean absolutely nothing.
Such doily puffs of thought never did, don’t now, and never will move one centimeter of reality.
Now, suppose we translate the so-called law of attraction into the arena of the subconscious. Do we then find something more powerful? Do subconsciously held thoughts or beliefs deliver significant consequences in your life? The answer to that unfolds in the following way:
The subconscious can inhibit or limit your life, but attempting to dredge up those beliefs in hope of changing them is, in the long run, like trying to get cash back on a purchase you made at a department store, when their policy is to give store credit only. Good luck.
The true and real transformation occurs when you use imagination to create new reality with great energy, based on understanding what you profoundly desire.
The fulfillment of what you desire does not yet exist. You create it.
And when you are headed in that direction, on all fronts, with power, the influence of the subconscious automatically shrinks and, more and more, becomes irrelevant, like a vestigial and useless appendage. It dissolves.
I recall, some years ago, a new-age prophet of renown announcing that we were all coming into a new world, and in that world, every thought would immediately come into existence as fact—and therefore, we had to undertake an extensive consciousness-purification and purging…and only those who had attained the highest degree of “distillation” would be able to enter through the door to New Life.
Welcome to Fascism. Welcome to Mind Control.
No, the secret of any real spiritual path is PROLIFERATION, NOT REDUCTION. And the proliferation occurs through creation.
Imagination gains enormous power and energy through extensive and adventurous use across wider and wider vistas.
Elites seek reduction to simplistic focus as a method of control.
As I’ve written many times, the universe is waiting for imagination to revolutionize it down to its core. The universe is not busy magnetically paying off little fizzles of thought with good or bad consequences. That juvenile view comes out of the tradition of iron-girdled puritanism, where fear is used as a tool to keep the masses in check.
I urge you to understand that, in the largest and most real sense, THERE IS NOTHING TO FIX.
THERE IS NOTHING A PERSON HAS TO FIX ABOUT HIMSELF.
THERE IS NO NEED TO TINKER AND TRY TO SCRUB AWAY CERTAIN THOUGHTS AND HIGHLIGHT OTHERS.
THERE IS NOTHING TO FIX ABOUT ONE’S FEELINGS OR ENERGIES.
But here is the catch. What I’ve just said becomes true when a person moves out on to a creative level of operation. When a person is beginning to live through and by imagination. Then he is working with his own energies, his own streams of energy and rhythms in a creative way. In a true sense, he is an artist. He is finding his deep desires and creating them as fact in the world. He is discovering what that means. Everything becomes fuel for the creative fire. He isn’t trying to fit himself into a mold. He isn’t trying to make himself into a cog in the machine of ordinary reality. He isn’t trying to become part of some Plan. He isn’t trying to harmonize with various myths about the cosmos. He’s creating. And then things become clear. What may have seemed like quirks or problems become transformed. They are transformed into raw material for the entire creative enterprise. The line of demarcation between “negative and positive” drifts away, and you are loose in a greater existence, which is what you wanted all along. You don’t need fixing. You become free and independent and powerful because you’re creating.
Then, whatever struggles you encounter are truly challenges on this larger level, in this larger space, and you can deal with them, because you have power.
And now magic begins to happen.
Now you experience spontaneous manifestation and you know it.
You are no longer preoccupied with little eddies of thought. You’re in the big ocean of your own desire and energy and imagination and invention and power.
NOW you’re the magnet and the engine and the force and the maker of vast projections and realities all at once.
You’ve exited Little and entered Big.
