“The universe is mental”
If you believe in this thing called “the law of attraction”, what you REALLY believe in is the concept of a mental universe.
You might not know that this is the case, but it is.
The teachings around the “law of attraction” originated during the late 1800s/early 1900s during the industrial revolution.
They were pioneered by booked like “the Secret of All Ages” or “The Master Key System”… Which ultimately led to books like “the Secret”.
Such “secrets” were used by the likes of Rockefeller or Ford to innovate and become rich during the time of the Industrial Revolution.
However, the “law of attraction” is just a phrase coined to describe a phenomenon studied since the dawn of human philosophical and spiritual teachings:
The phenomena/concept of the mental universe.
What is this concept?
Essentially, it is the idea that the universe is somehow mental.
That the fundamental building block of reality is some form of mind.
Effectively, what I’m suggesting is that IF you believe in the law of attraction, what you REALLY believe is that your mind has the power to influence reality.
Such a feat is only possible if the fundamental construct of reality is also mind.
Otherwise, your thoughts and feelings would not have the influence that we believe that they do…
Why does it appear that your thoughts, feelings, actions, and beliefs seem to generate your reality?
Again and again, this has proven to be overwhelmingly true in my life and in the lives of many of my closest friends and family members.
I would be a fucking moron if i didn’t believe in the law of attraction at this point…
I would simply not be paying attention to the life that plays out in front of me, to include the accompanying books that explain the exact phenomenon that I seem to experience on an almost daily basis.
However, this somewhat paranormal existence is merely the demonstration of what ancient peoples have known for thousands of years:
That the universe is mental.
Hindus have been saying this for thousands of years: that the universe is “consciousness vibrating”…
In other words, a literal moving and vibrating conscious being in whose mind we swim.
The Ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Akhnaton founded his own version of the Egyptian religion known as “Atonism”…
Worship of what he called “The Aton” (or Aten).
This invisible mind force that he observed operating in nature.
As Pharaoh, he demanded that the Egyptian religion be demolished and, instead, that we worship the direct source of divine power:
The universal mind.
The collective consciousness.
The “great unseen”.
Akhnaton worshiped the Aton in all its forms. He was known to converse with homeless beggers, poor farmers, slaves, and folks from all walks of life…
It was said that he saw the Aton in all his subjects.
In all the places that he walked as Pharaoh, he saw the handiwork of the Aton.
The universal mind that manifests itself constantly, every moment of every day.
I’m starting to think he may have been onto something…
