The Good Thing About the Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction gives hope to everyone regardless of age, gender, or status, and if reports are to be believed, it has changed the lives of many men and women, all of them for the better. By harnessing the natural law of the Universe and tapping into this limitless pool of energy, anyone can take a truth, a desire, or a static plan in his life and be moved into action.
People who use the Law of Attraction keep positive about every aspect of their lives. The Law is also a reason for them to take stock of their abilities, seriously look at their goals, and begin making them come true. The nature of how the Law works gives people a chance to take action, use their potential, avoid procrastination, and live a life that is filled with purposeful dreaming. The Law is not just about having goals; it’s about fulfilling them in a structured way.
The bad thing about the Law of Attraction
First things first, everything about the Law of Attraction depends on the individual and by that very nature alone, the law can turn out to be quite bad. After all, if each one of us can take control of the Law, what’s the point of it promising to be effective? When the power of making dreams come true is shifted from the mystical to the practical (meaning, us), the Law loses its magic. When we take control, then that only means that the Law of Attraction is not absolute.
And that’s absolutely right. If you’ve chosen your readings about the concept of the Universal Laws carefully, you’ll find that just because the power of making dreams come true is available to everyone, doesn’t automatically mean that we all can take a pick of the apples from the tree. Oh no, it takes way more effort than that.
Another bad thing about the Law of Attraction is that it has fallen victim to commercialization. Notice how many books about the Law have come out, along with brochures, tapes, and CDs, all promising to be THE guide to the law. Most of these products (and they are products) promise their readers and users a new thing, a new concept, a new action plan, but in truth, they don’t deliver. What they contain is just the same ideas and concepts of the same Law. Innovative? No. Repackaged? Definitely.
The ugly truth about the Law of Attraction
Can something this good be ever bad? Is it possible for a Universal Law to hide an ugly, dark side? Is there something about it that we should worry about?
Making your own reality
There’s a danger that the Law of Attraction might be misinterpreted and used to the extreme. If and when this happens, a person will be creating his own reality, something that may be a hundred million light-years away from the truth in his life.
Let’s take for example the well-loved reality show ‘American Idol’. Let’s say out of the hundreds of thousands who audition for the show, really, truly believe in their hearts that they are the next American Idol. Now let’s say about a fourth of them use the Law of Attraction to help them make their dreams come true. Will this work?
Thinking that the Law of Attraction will work based on the premise that focusing on something you want will bring it to life is faulty.
Using the above example, we’ll find at least two untruths:
- Not everyone who uses the Law of Attraction has the talent and singing skills to help them go through the rounds in the competition.
- Granted that everyone who uses the Law of Attraction does have the singing talent, not everyone will get his dream because there’s only one top spot. The rest will lose due to a lack of votes from the viewers and the fact that there’s only room for one.
Remember that the Law of Attraction is about the truth. It will not survive or thrive in lies and deception, especially if these are self-imposed. Depending on how you use it, the Law can change your perception of things in your life. For that alone, consider the Law as something that has a lot of potential for both the good, the bad and yes, the ugly.
