Now this thread has taken a slightly differnt turn, let me contribute somethign that some of you may or may not agree with. This is not necessay what
I believe, because I think belief is a very powerful word and although I thing I understand some things, and I want it to be true, I always have a
problem with conviction. Few points:
If you take the very idea of mind before matter. You can talk as much metaphysics as you want, but taken simply this is a very true statement. We do
not yet know how the mind works or how thoughts develop. What we do know is that there is an electrical impulse in the brain, which fires synapses and
nerves. If I tell myself to move my hand, these signals then travers through the nervous system, and my hand will be moved.
This raises many questions such as holographic mind, phantom lims etc. But what it does tell us that through the very nature of electricity, that
thought starts a chain of events (movement of electrons) which results in an action.
Now why must that action be limited to the human body? And the very action of moving your hand through space and therefore time, means that you are
having an effect on the universe, however small. This implies to me that it COULD be possible, to manipulate reality through the use of the mind.
This is why I am so interested in the metaphysics, because EVERYTHING is related. The mind is the prime mover of the universe.
With the example of the third world and the billionaires, I think that there would always be limitations of what one could do with their life. Not
everyone could be a billionaire, as there is no equilibrium there. The universe favours balance, it is a universal law. It is governed by forces we
don't realy undrstand.
Again take astrology. Alot of you may dismiss it as folklore, new-age or whatever. But take the fact that planets have a gravitational force. Why
could this not be affecting us and we not know, just like there are millions of differen wavelength signals around you right now.
Again science is even starting to consider the fact that the three forces are actaully constituents of one greater force. This is what traditions have
taught for thousands of years!
Finally it has been proven that living things have energy fields, and that negative and positive thoughts have different effects on our bodies. Again,
this by the very nature of reality means that we are effecting the universe, not just ourselves!
To sum up before I bore people, I see no reason whatsover that the Law of Attraction could not be part of the universe, but it is also controlled by
the greater forces of the universe so there are limtations.
