Your steps pretty much sum it up. Thanks mate.

One thing though without which all of it means nothing:

Self-Confidence

trip down memory lane...thats the very first book in this direction I read. I was around 13 years old and stunned beyond belief. I was much too lazy to practice all of it but even some of it was enough to get my first results.

Exactly, self-confidence. I use different terms but we're saying the same things. I like to think of them as Virtues. Faith, Strength, Justice, Compassion, Humility, Charity, Patience, Harmony, Flexibility, etc. The more developed these qualities, the more profound will be the results of your practice. If you don't have Self-Confidence in your practice, you're effectively killing it.

There's a concept called Auto-Suggestion, which I'm sure you're aware of. Anything that is repeated often enough, and is accepted as true, falls into the subconscious and becomes programing through which our perception of ourselves and the world is filtered. Through regular practice, focusing on attracting what we wish, we are Suggesting to our minds that this is reality. Once it is accepted, it becomes Faith, ie, the Self-Confidence that is so important. When we develop Faith in something, we are giving it power. We cannot manifest things without confidence that we can and will do so, and confidence is created via repetition, programing the idea into the subconscious mind.

Once the Sub. gets ahold of it, you can begin to see results. With practice, all of the stages required to manifest something can be developed. You can cultivate a greater sense of harmonious energy via the breath. You can have more powerful, vivid mental pictures. You can take more active, direct physical steps.

But only through Auto-Suggestion can one develop Self-Confidence. Only through enduring hardships, and transforming our human lack into spiritual abundance. In this way, we cultivate our Virtues, and the more developed these qualities, the more powerful will be our manifestations.

There, I think we summed up some practical advice, don't you?

Taint my thread! But I do think that if you're new to the subject, you'll learn a lot more practicing what's in this thread as opposed to reading more about the technique. Most people like to just read and read and read and say they "Got it." They don't get it. There's knowing, and knowing through experience, which is a whole different level. Unless people break away from the thread and actually practice, they'll never "Get it". Only through practice can we learn this at a greater depth.

I posted this comment on the "Law of Attraction" on this thread I began today.

Clinton Just Made The Most Politically Detrimental Statement About R.F.K., Assassination, and Obama?

I just had a coversation with a friend over the phone about this very topic due to what I put here. And the friend had a very powerful question to ask Me.


How Do I Know My Actions Here Are Not Drawing or Invoke These Events To Happen?


I have to say I answered back as best I could through the thinking of this type of thread here done by Skyfloating.

How "the law of attraction" works

My answer to that friend, was that I have the intent that My actions, the words I choose, the intent that I am attempting to inform people that I do not want these events to happen, the intelligence behind these words through actions of typing here as well as communicating face to face with someone, draw the "magic bulltet" away from happening, stop the "lone nut" from finding the perch, to stop the money being handed off to pay that person, to stop the seven world bankers actions from coming to pass, to have more love, intelligence, and intent, than the bad that will happen by drawing away from the person I see it happening to.

Thereby it is the very hope I am bringing to this that I am very wrong.

Thereby it is the very hope I am bringing that these events do not unfold.

Thereby it is the very hope that nothing devastating happens.


I thought I would share it with this forum arena.

Not only that, but they tend to indefinitely postpone the start of the practice itself... and not only out of laziness.

What such people really want is a happy thought - that there IS hope, after all - to lull them to sleep at night and keep them warm and light during the day. Knowing that something COULD be done about their troubles is often enough to see them through the grey maze of their daily life... only, it never lasts long. And so they come back for more - for a new dose of HOPE.

It's touching, deeply poignant, and not without a certain noble purpose.
But it leads nowhere.

I could not agree more Vanitas. Illusions are grander than the truth. Hope so much better than application. Want and fear so much more seductive than gratitude and awareness. Better to dream about the top of Mt. Everest than to take the first step, then the next, then the next, and so on, that will actually get you there.

There was a jerk in my fifth grade class that used to make fun of my brown bag lunch, my crappy clothes, (we were poor) and just about everything he could think of. I am no saint, and I happily would sit there eating my crappy brown bag lunch and wish the sorry jerk would fall off the monkey bars and break his head, or fall under the bus, lol. I really didnt like him. He never did. I eventually did pop him in the nose in the 7th grade though. But that wasnt the LoA that was the LotJ. (Law of the Jungle)

And I can almost guarantee you that there are 100's of thousands (if not millions) of people in the world wishing bad things for our beloved President, due to his foreign policies. He seems to be doing just fine as well. It isnt good to be wishing ill on another being, but the main reason is that harboring that kind of resentment is bad for YOU. Tis far, far better to take appropriate action and leave the wishing alone. I felt much better after I punched that little buttmunch in the head and released my anger and moved on.

Just like a hit they choke it down and move on satisfied for a couple hours only to return back and start right at the beginning.


Only now the rules here are in flux. There is no book listed set of steps and the mice are finding it very difficult to follow along. This is the set of Laws in motion.

A list is for the lesser occultist, who may need robes, props and secret sigils and things to reinforce belief, when none of that is reqiured.

This is for the fully formed human that needs nothing and takes everything with them to use where ever it is needed.

And this takes us back to the parable of the talents. Fear caused the coin to be buried. The user was left to imagine all that could be done but nothing was. In the end the gift was given to the user that chose to act. Similar to myself he had no love of money, but he chose an object that had interest to the simple so they might understand.

What the master was trying to relate is the ones that choose to use, gain rapidly from the power left over from those that do not. He knew that man would never change and only a select few, the elect, those that were in the inner circle because they chose to act would ever understand and use the talent.

He again tried to explain through the parable of the yeast, as when it was put in the dough it multiplied greatly. Your intention in the dough of the world is the same if your yeast is not killed by hate, anger and the lower desires of the ego.

This is profound in my opinion vanitas. Im quoting the whole thing so that more get to read it.

The comfort that something COULD be done JUST IN CASE is enough for most people. I know it used to be for me.

One of my Exercises

I´ll share one of my exercises for a change.

Walk through town. Get calm. Start noticing how hundreds of things are advertising for your intention. The painter selling nice pictures. The cafe inviting for coffee. The begger asking for money. The church. The politicial party handing out pamphlets. Beautiful women/men eyeing you or wanting to be eyed.

While all these positives/negatives try advertising for your attention, try keeping your attention instead focussed on a certain spot you are walking towards (for example a tree, a lamp, a car). Once you reach that place, focus your attention on something else in the distance. Disregard the worlds frenzied call for your attention and determine where you put it yourself.

____________________________

This exercise strengthens the inner will that will not be swayed and lured by the world.

Thank you. I really appreciate your understanding of what's at stake here.

And I don't think it's even "just in case".

I have observed that in many cases - and that includes even yours truly (if only occasionally, in the past) - even being smack in the middle of a grave crisis isn't enough to push one to "act" (strictly in the sense we're discussing here).
Just knowing that there is another way that could solve it everything seems to be enough to give one courage... even if it is short-lived and, as I said, leads nowhere.

I suppose it's because it acknowledges the existence of a universe far less stern and inexorable and bleak as it is usually presented. A universe in which everything (beautiful) is possible - even if it is tomorrow.

Indeed: fear is man's greatest enemy.
I don't care how much of a platitude it may sound at this point - apparently, one cannot repeat it often enough for it to really sink in...

Unless, of course, an individual is tried by fire, as it were.
When the fire is all around you, you stand up to it or be incinerated.

But I really wish such extremes were unnecessary...

Well, that explains a lot...
