Jon Rappoport is right in the way the Law of Attraction has been taught. The only article this week on Zen Gardner that made any sense.
"Therefore, one assumes, if a hundred thousand people are dying of thirst during a drought, they brought that on by thinking a whole lot of negative thoughts. People who advocate the law of attraction tend to dislike such examples. They sometimes hedge their bets by asserting that external events (e.g., a drought) are quite real and they never claimed otherwise. This produces a blurry line between events that “just happen” independent of what people are thinking, and events which are the result of negative or positive thoughts."
Major problem with the milquetoast crowd of the New Age movement. They contend that those suffering in poverty were thinking negative thoughts all along. Not only its downright condescending, it ignores the fact that these areas are run by corrupt administrations, opportunities are very few and the system ensures that the few rich in these areas are protected from facing competition.
"Furthermore, people who hold very strong beliefs act on them. They don’t sit in a room and power up that belief-engine and wait for something to happen. They aren’t involved in some “snap-of-the-fingers” manifestation. They take massive and sustained action.
They live out their beliefs. They create what wasn’t there before. And in that act of creating, during a life lived, at some point along the line they experience remarkable collisions of events—the fancy label is synchronicity. People and situations come to their aid."
Action is everything, and in doing so then it connects with events. I like the way he uses 'fancy label' to describe one of the terms that is often thrown about by those who don't really understand it but use it to look knowledgeable.
I experience this all the time and it annoys me to the core. Bringing up the fact we are living in a Hell planet run by the Religion of Money (Mark Passio's words) causes them to throw back at me the 'negative thought' line which I suspect is the real reason that compelled Jon to write this article, his frustration clearly showing.
