Focus on Peace

The Law of Attraction tells us to focus on what we want, not what we don't want. Focus on Peace and take you attention off of focusing on war.

There has been a lot of attention recently about the phenomenal movie,Guest Posting “The Secret” and the recently released book of the same name. The main theme is the metaphysical law called “The Law of Attraction”.

The law states that “like attracts like.” We are magnetic and we attract to us those people, events and experiences that are in alignment with the preponderance of our thoughts. What you put your attention on and think about is what shows up in your life experience.

I personally believe in this law because I have documented it so irrefutably in my own life just through the mere observation of what I consciously think about and then noting what shows up in my experience. Anybody can do this but it takes a commitment to the process and a true desire to understand this law with a level of clarity that goes beyond normal everyday living.

Once you become aware of the power of this law you cannot help but strive to use it to your benefit as much as possible because you begin to understand how important it is to continually think about those things you want in your life and to stop thinking about those things you don’t want in your life.

That sounds pretty simple on the face of it. Continually think about the things you do want in your life and stop thinking about the things you don’t want in your life. Well, duh?! But the implementation of this simple procedure becomes more daunting when you realize the subtleties involved in this process. There is more to this equation than meets the eye. Let’s take a look at one aspect of how this works to get a clearer perspective of the overall application of this law and how you can use it to benefit your life experience.

One of the concepts that most people on this planet want to experience is peace. Whether you are a pacifist and are against the war or you are a hawk and are for the war what both of these perspectives are looking for in the final analysis is this thing called “Peace”.

The hawk believes you can achieve peace by influencing others through the persuasion of military might in order to change behavior and the pacifist does not believe in the idea of war to achieve peace. So the hawk is pro-war and the pacifist is anti-war. What is the common theme that both groups are putting their attention on? WAR!

The Law of Attraction says that “like attracts like”. It doesn’t matter what side of the coin you are on, if you are putting your attention on ‘war’ to achieve ‘peace’, you are going to continue to experience “war”. You bring into your life that which you put your attention on. Whether you are pro-war or anti-war you are creating more ‘war’.

The only way you can use “The Law of Attraction” to stop war and experience peace is by not putting any attention on war and only putting your attention on peace. You see, the more you put your attention on war, even if the attention you are putting there is to ‘stop war’ you are still attracting the very thing you say you don’t want. How is that? Because you are putting your attention on it. You are not putting your attention on ‘peace’. You are putting your attention on ‘stopping the war’. Big difference. You are continuing to perpetuate war under the belief that you are ‘against the war’.

The only way to create peace in your life is to “Be Peaceful”, and never give a moment’s attention to war. If you are ‘being peaceful’ and never entertaining thoughts of war then you will ‘be peaceful’ even when all around you may be at war.

Obviously this will be impossible to do if you continue to watch the nightly news on TV, listen to the news on the radio or read your daily newspaper.

It all comes down to whether or not you want to make an experiment out of your life and see if this is true for you. Is it worth a year of your life to give up TV, news- talk radio and reading the newspaper for a year to see if this is true? Wouldn’t that be a fun experiment with your life? Think thoughts of peace, speak only words of peace and do only peaceful things for one year. Do you think your life would be more peaceful?

Give it a try and report back to me in one year.
