Why does the Law of Attraction Work?
This a question that is not to easy to find a definitive answer, we are dealing with the meaning of life or creation and we will need to look at this from three different view points. The theological or religious and spiritual view, the mental scientific view and the metaphysical or quantum physical view.
I ask you now to open your mind, not because these ideas are so way out there that youll have difficulty believing them, but because we will be looking from three different view points to get a well balanced view of these theories of creation.
If you air on the side of science, I ask you to consider the spiritual arguments and vice versa for religious readers, these theories follow logical patterns using both inductive and deductive reasoning, and refreshingly the science vs religion debate, leads us to identical conclusions.
So what do I mean by inductive and deductive reasoning?
In logic, we often refer to the two broad methods of reasoning as the deductive and inductive approaches.
Deductive reasoning works from the more general to the more specific. Sometimes this is informally called a "top-down" approach. We might begin with thinking up a theory about our topic of interest. We then narrow that down into more specific hypotheses that we can test. We narrow down even further when we collect observations to address the hypotheses. This ultimately leads us to be able to test the hypotheses with specific data -- a confirmation (or not) of our original theories.
Inductive reasoning works the other way, moving from specific observations to broader generalizations and theories. Informally, we sometimes call this a "bottom up" approach. In inductive reasoning, we begin with specific observations and measures, begin to detect patterns and regularities, formulate some tentative hypotheses that we can explore, and finally end up developing some general conclusions or theories.
Before we start, a word about God or by any other name El, Elohim, Allah, Yhwh or Yahweh, Lord, Jehovah, Tetragrammaton, The Holy Trinity, Devudu, Telugu, Abba, Deus, Amlak, Jah, Ngai, Niskam, Baquan, Bhagavan, Brahman, Paramatma, Ishvara, Vishnu, Shiva, Satnaam, Akal, Onkar, Anami Purush, Radha Swami, Mwari, Ahura Mazda, Gitche Manitou, Shang Ti, Khoda. or Duw.
I will not stand here to prove that any of the above exist, I do not stand on any side of religion, when I speak about God, I do so for want of a better name. To begin with, it will do us well to dispel all our visual ideas of God, especially as a human, because that will seem to limit are ideas of power and resource.
The first lessons will be taken from Ernest Holmes Book The Science of Mind
The founder of the worldwide Religious Science movement originally published the Science of Mind in 1926. It was completely revised in 1938 by Ernest Holmes and Maude Allison Latham.
Using creative techniques, Holmes guides the student in easy-to-follow steps toward mastering the powers of the mind to find purpose in life. His explanations of how to pray and meditate, heal oneself spiritually, find self confidence, and express love have helped millions change their lives for the better.
We will be studying Chapter I of the book, The Evolution of Mans Thought, as well as selected lessons from Chapter II, (the Six Science of Mind Lessons).
You will be able download the complete eBook at the download section of the course, which you will gain access to at the end of the daily study program.
Ernest Holmes had an immense influence on New Age beliefs, particularly his core philosophy that we create our own reality.
