I think I have a better understanding of what it is like to lose a hero, now.
I read an article by Jessica Wildfire that caused me to really analyze an idea I have been working with for years.
The Law of Attraction and Conscious Reality Creation are not new concepts by any stretch of the imagination. One of the most popular and well-known explorations of this concept is Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret.
The whole point of The Secret is sharing the idea that the Law of Attraction is something everyone is entitled to, and it can come from simply hoping, wishing, and believing. Hell, the central tenet of her approach is to ask, believe, then receive whatever you desire from the Universe.
One major fault I have found in this concept is a lack of work in the manifestation of what you might be seeking. The Secret more-or-less outright tells you that if you believe it enough it will be real.
One thing that always bothered me about this concept was that no work goes into it. While I believe that consciousness creates reality, and you can apply the Law of Attraction to draw things into your life, it cannot come from a vacuum. There is work involved.
Work that is self-focused. But not selfish. Jessica Wildfire’s article addressed this notion in a way that was darker and more distressing than just a missing element. The Secret could be viewed as telling you to BE selfish and doesn’t make any mention of kindness, compassion, or even simple consideration for anyone else.
That, Ms. Wildfire postulates, really gets into the nitty-gritty of why America is in the state it’s in — and even Trump believes wishing might make a global pandemic simply miracle away.
This is not the way it has always been
The world as we know it today is not all that old.
When it comes to how people live, the nature of the jobs people do, and how the economy works -it is less than a hundred years old. Pretty much the economic model we follow today came into being after WWII.
