The Law of Attraction...

As you read this post it will be a good idea to go back to my previous post, Miracle, to understand.

Current Thinking: What is ‘the Law of Attraction’ and how does Solomon’s  (the owl Sara converses with throughout the book) wisdom help me understand things that are difficult to comprehend, something difficult to make sense of it in a logical way? Is this just fantasy? Or is it more?

Key Passages:

o So, if you do not need your eyes to see, you also do not need your ears to hear.
o We are birds of a feather, you know? / People use that expression to point out their awareness that things that are like one another come together. That which is like unto itself is drawn.
o Actually, a better name would be ‘the Law of Attraction.’ The Law of Attraction says: “That which is like unto itself is drawn.”
o As you begin to notice more things that you want to see, more of those things begin to become part of your experience.

Analyze: As I read through the text, Solomon’s wisdom stirred something in me that couldn’t be really be described or explained. It is akin to encountering a fundamental truth or principle, that couldn’t be explained because either logic is non-present or we simply can’t perceive with the logic we are accustomed to. There is a saying that, “When we think of happy thoughts, we are happy, and happy things come our way.” The Law of Attraction Solomon describes in theses passages are the same thing: we are drawn to things that are like us. I always ask the question, “Just because we can’t seem to really find the logic or rationality behind it, does it mean it is impossible? Just a fantasy?” Solomon, the owl, constantly asks Sara questions, questions that lead to Sara seeking for more answers and finally understanding them.

Synthesize: As I pondered about these passages, I realized that these things really happen in life. People, objects, situations, and etc. are drawn to things that are similar. When we think of happy thoughts and desire happy things, we experience happy things. Of course, there are many questions to go along with this philosophy, so to say. Like, “But when we want something that is good, and we think about it, desire it, why is it that we always seem to get just the opposite, something bad?” I will be talking more about this on my other posts.

  1. Remember that your readers don't have the context of common recent history to bring to your blog posts. Be sure that you tell us what you are doing. For example, in this post, who is Solomon? You are referring to a character from a book that you have not introduced in this post. You can also link to prior posts to give context: "As explained in my last post [link], I am studying the book Sara..." -- that sort of thing.
