“You attract into your life, whatever your dominant thought is” – The Law of One
I hope you have had a good week trying to snap back into the reality of work, school and other commitments after the Christmas and New Year celebrations. It was slightly tough trying to get my brain to continue from where I left off with work last year but now I think I have got the hang of it. Incase you didn’t get the chance to read the first post for 2013, “Keep digging” (see here).
This post was inspired by a law that has proven true time and time again. I have found out that just like the law of gravity, whether you believe in it or not, it still holds true.
Chances are that you may have may have read about this law as it is also called “The Law of Attraction”. If you have, I suggest that you still carry on reading.
To properly illustrate how this law works, I will use a very simple, somewhat flimsy example from December 2012.
I do a lot of planning and reflecting (in my opinion) and as a result, I go through notebooks very quickly. The last notebook I used served as a combination of a diary, jotter, to-do list, and drawing book for times when I was really bored. As a result of this, I needed a sturdy, not-so-large but thick diary to separate my to-do-list, the products of my sober reflections and my study notes. One could ask why I didn’t use my phone like most relatively young people do. My answer to that is that I still enjoy the old fashioned way of crossing off items from my to-do-list. It has a way of making me feel productive.
Okay back to topic, I needed a diary that was large enough to hold all my daily scribbles, small enough to go into my bag and chic enough to be seen with. I had a picture of what I wanted and casually looked in bookshops whenever I went into town but I could not find it – not at the right price anyway.
Towards Christmas, my department held a Christmas lunch and secret Santa was part of the activities. I hoped that whoever picked my name from the hat would get me a diary. Alas when the day came, I got a nice and interesting necklace but not a diary.
I then decided to take matters into my own hands and ordered a diary through the office ordering process but when the diary got delivered, it still wasn’t what I wanted. At this point I decided to make do with the little office diary and carried on with my life.
Two weeks later while typing away on my computer, with the diary issue long forgotten, my colleague pulled his chair closer to me and asked, “Chika do you need a diary?” I replied, “Sure, let me see what you’ve got.” To my surprise he handed me a lovely diary exactly like the one I was searching for weeks before. I was speechless for a while and thanked him for it. After thanking him, I did a mental check to find out if I had mentioned needing a diary to him at any point and concluded that I did not. The Law of One had worked.
You may be wondering why I am making all this fuss about a simple diary but just imagine what one could achieve by being aware of this law and using it positively.
It should be noted at this point that the Law of One or the Law of Attraction does not take away the power of God/the Universe in our lives.
The Bible actually states that, “If your faith is as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, move and it will move”. While I am not sure if one should attempt moving an actual mountain based on the bible passage, I am confident in the knowledge that a mustard seed was just about the size of my faith regarding the diary.
Just imagine what else could be possible if we decided to have a little more faith without the unnecessary pressure that having doubt creates.
I will leave you here for now and say thank you once again for visiting and reading through this post. Please feel free to leave your comments.
Have a fulfilling weekend.
